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.

  • Their website was a unreachable a few times yesterday and I guess you got yourself a incomplete file. I just tried it and it downloads complete now. Just right click on the link and choose save to disk.
    When fully downloaded you can open it or first right click on it, choose properties and it should be 799Kb (818,858 bytes) in size. You can then open it and run the enclosed firmware updater.

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.
