Question about Lite On LH-20A1H DVD RW Dual Layer Burner
Thanks in advance for your help. I installed a new liteon dvd drive and can't get it to work, According to the device manager, the driver is installed yet it cannot locate the device. Any help would be appreciated.
Is the drive appearing in My computer with a drive letter?
If it isn't:
1. click Start, point to Run, type diskmgmt.msc, and then click OK
2. If you see your drive listed without a letter, right click on it and assign it a new drive letter
