Question about Lite On LH-20A1P (0844149002088) Burner

1 Answer

My drive is neither reading nor writing CDs (or DVDs)

I have tried to get my drive to work again through deleting upper and lower registry filters, disable and re-enable and uninstall, reboot, have the system reinstall. I can't really think of anything else to try. My computer shows a DVD-RAM but when I click on it, nothing shows up, even when a CD is inserted. The drive is not reading or writing CDs. I have had the computer less than one year, and I am running Windows XP. Thanks for any help you can give.

SOURCE: Drive not showing in WinXP (error code 39)Liteon Combo SOHC-5236v

After loading the Windows, the DVD/CD-ROM drives work properly, but we can not see the drives in “My Computer” (System can not recognize the drives.). When try to run the drives, it shows up a notice “Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code39).” Before solving this error, check the drives connection correctly, then follow the steps below:
Delete Device Manager. Most people will firstly think of Windows “Find New Hardware” when drives missed, but it does not always work out. To fix the problem: open “My Computer”’ “Control Panel” ’“System”’“Device Manager”’ “HDC(Hard Disk Controller) ”, then click “Delete”. Follow the note to reboot computer. After rebooting, the computer will find the Primary IDE Controller and Secondary IDE Controller again and install the drivers. Restart the computer again while the installation is completed. In this, we can get back our CD/DVD-ROM Drives.

The other way is by editing the registry to return the missed CD/DVD-ROM drives (Code 39 error.). Obviously, it is too risky to edit the registry if you are not familiar with it. To fix the error from the registry, carry out the following steps:
Exit and close all applications currently running on your PC.
Step1. Click Start > Run and type in Regedit, press Enter.
Step2. Look for the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Delete any of the following registry entries under this key directory:
LowerFilters
LowerFilters.bak
UpperFilters
UpperFilters.bak
Step3. Reboot your PC and open My Computer to check that the CD-ROM drive is visible.
Also, have a look at the Device Manager to see if the yellow exclamation mark and the error code 39 are gone.

edit the registry and delete the upper and lower filter.

In Registry Editor, expand the following registry path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class

Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.

Right click the upper filter and delete it. Look for lower filter and delete it also. (if only one is available then its fine).

close registry editor and restart the computer.

try your dvd drive again.


***Note*** make sure to follow the instructions properly. do not delete any file, just the lower and upper filter or else system will not load to windows anymore.
