Question about Lite On LVW-5005 DVD Recorder
My LVW-5005X no longer will recognize that I have a disk inserted.
It will open and close with no problem, but always reports NO DISK.
I have tried already written DVD disks, blank DVD-R and DVD+R disks,
and blank CDs.
The unit has worked until now, but I had trouble with the door opening so I had to open the cover and remove the burner so I could get to the manual eject lever. Now it opens/closes with no complaint, but somehow it no longer recognizes there are disks in the unit.
This is a common problem with the Lite-on LVW range of DVD recorders
due to changes in the construction of more recent DVD R media. It can
be solved with a relatively simple firmware upgrade.

You'll need to have a blank CD and a CD/DVD writer in the PC you use to download the file.
Follow the instructions on the website to upgrade your firmware, this should then allow you to write to DVD's once again.
