Question about Lite On (ldw811s) DVD±RW Burner
I recently had my computer completely cleaned off and updated. I installed this new hardware to go along with all the other New installations. It worked great for awhile now that I'm going through my backup DVD's trying to get back information I downloaded before the clean up it's not working right at all. It can never decide whether it wants to open or close half the time. I've had to reboot over and over just to get it to do that. When I put anything in to open it flashes green but most of the time doesn't read anything. If it does find the files I have downloaded on the CD's it won't open them. Everytime I try to search anything it freezes up my computer. I did try uninstalling it and letting the computer reinstall, but that didn't help.
I would suggest cleaning the drive with a cleaning dvd, $19.99 at most retailers. Or you can open up your computer and verify all connections to the drive are good, disconnect and re-connect to be sure. Hope this helps.
