Re: Setup Problem

Is the Master/Slave jumper set correctly on the back of the drive?

If the drive is on a cable with another drive of any type, one must be master and the other slave.

Also, double check that the ribbon cable is plugged in correctly.

JLMS DVD-ROM XJ-HD166 DVD/CD ROM Drive does not acknowledge disc in drive after having the computer set back to factory

Does it not acknowledge dvd disc only or cd or dvd both. If it doesn't read the dvd disc, or able to play dvd disc, but able to exlpore regular cd's, then you have a codec error, and you need to download a dvd codec like powerdvd for it for your system to play dvd disc. Check to see if your dvd-rom drive appears in the "my computer" window, if it is there, but wouldn't be able to play anything, then it could be a driver issue. so make sure in the hardware , the drivers is installed and working properly. If it is working properly and driver is installed, then you got a bad drive, the optical laser lenses isnt reading or the spindle ain't working anymore if you don't hear disc being loaded when inserting the disc.

This drive stopped allowing CD burns. Is it just

Have had this issue in the past with Lite-On in particular. Stop gap measure was to uninstall and reinstall to get it working temporarily. It seems the life span of Lite-On isn't all that great. Best of luck.
