On my computer i run windows XP home, My DVD burner is an LITE-ON DVDRW LH-18A1P. When I convert A Downloaded AVI file to a PAL VOB files i have no problem Burning the converted file to an DVD + or - RW But just recentley i purchesed a stack of Memorex DVD+R Disc's And on the pack there is a notice saying that i may have to update the firmware of the burner. so when i tryed to burn the pal file on to this memorex DVD+R Disc i got an error messege and it would not burn. so through my device manager i tryed to update the driver but the wizard could not fide an newer driver so i was wondering if you could be of some help with this problem ? Do I need to update the Firmware of is the firmware that i already have sufficent for the new 16X Memorex DVD + R Disc's ??? Thanking yopu for your time

Re: Problem with DVD + R

If your product was made before july 2007 you could try the firmware offered here on the lite-on website. Download the firmware zip file and extract then run the exe file inside.

Lite-on dvdrw lh-18a1p does no reconize music cd`s or dvd movies.

If you are trying to copy store bought dvds most have anti copying protection built in which will not allow a dvd burner to recognize them. I hope this helps.

It seems Lite-on Has a lot of Probs.In fact I had the same model on an SATA system.It would not burn dvd's or cd's.You can try updating your burning software,and reinstalling the drive through device manager.I actually ended up buying an LG burner....lo-and works without any problems.Good luck
