Lite-on sohc-5232k problem

I have a lite-on sohc-5232k combo drive. I installed the latest driver (Nkoj) afterwhich, my drive stopped recognizing any type of cd/dvd inserted into the drive. I see the reader light come on, it flashes as if it's reading it, but then nothing happens. I tried uninstalling the drive and let my computer redetect the drive to no avail. I also tried cleaning the lens but my drive won't recognize it. Please help. Thanks

Try system recovery if it is turned on, also you may try to unplug and plug back your drive from motherboard.

Good luck

Seen by windows as cd rom drive only


Check your device manager and look for flags or exculmation marks under the drive.
If none found, go to lite-on and download most recent drivers for the drive.

I recently bought a lite on sohc 5236k, unfortunately it didnt come with a manual so i am unsure of the installation and set up can you help dave


If its an internal burner, you have to open your computer case, remove your old drive and note the setting ont he back, the "jumper" will be on either M, S or CS. Select the same setting on your new drive and replace it inside the case. For step by step

Burner problems


First check if device is recognised in bios, if it is then you need to fixwindows. If you cannot see cd unit in bios then check that slave/master / cable bridge settings at back of cd are fine.In this case the fastest way to test your unit is to connect it as single unit with a tested ide cable on the computer, just to test it. On the other channel you connect the hd. Eventually switch channels and cables between hd and cd.

Does not recognize CD


Could be the cd's not compadible, try a more expensive one.  This is a cd/dvd burner combo right?  If so how long have you had it?

LITEON DVD/CD-RW CAN READ DVD BUT NOT AUDIO/DATA CD.


I would suggest cleaning the drive with a cleaning dvd, $19.99 at most retailers. Or you can open up your computer and verify all connections to the drive are good, disconnect and re-connect to be sure. Hope this helps.
