Question about Lite On SOHW - 1633S (show1633sbk) Internal DVD Drive
I too have this drive not working right now, and have uninstalled and reinstalled it and it doesn't need updating accdg to msgs. It does have the exclamation point lit up. I have recently renamed it because a signature mini external memory box took the E. I couldn't remember if it was an E or F in the past but have made the memory box a J: and the Lite an E: Was that wrong?
It lights up briefly when I put in any kind of disk and the prompt asks me to insert a disk if I ask it to read it. And thanks, this has driven me nuts and kept me from some important stuff.

Right click on My Computer and select properties. Now select the Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button. Look at the DVD/CD-ROM entry. Do you see your drive listed? Is there a question mark or exclamation point next to it? If it's listed and there is no question mark or explanation point then your problem is most likely a hardware failure of the drive itself. Your DVD drive is one of the few things in your computer that has moving parts and they tend to fail more often. If, on the other hand, you don't see a listing for the drive in Device Manager or you see an exclamation point or question mark then there may be a software solution so let me know.
Lastly, the reason lots of folks don't respond to this type of question is because it is most likely a hardware failure and therefore there is no way for us to make a suggestion that will fix your problem. We don't get paid for this, most of us just like to help solve problems. So, if you find any of this useful I hope you'll rate the solution kindly even though it may not be physically possible to fix your problem.
