Question about Lite On LVW-5005 DVD Recorder
MY LVW-5005X DVD Writer does not recognize any discs I put in it! Help!
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 to upgrade your firmware, this should then allow you to write to DVD's once again.

You rated that suggestion 'inappropriate' after the guy took the time to try to help you out for free. You know, Frankie has met some real ungrateful S.O.B.s in his time (and fixed a few too) but most of even them didn't tend to crap on people who were trying to help them... for free! (and these are the types that would k-ll you as soon as look at you.
Good luck to you getting any help, on here or anywhere. With your attitude you really don't deserve any.

Sounds like a media compatibility issue. If you are using high speed DVD+R discs you may wish to try a lower speed +R or even try -R. I had a similar problem with a DVD writer a while back and although the documentation for the unit said it supported +R I couldn't get it to read or write to anything but DVD-R discs.
