Hey there dhruvr, your problem is minor. Even though your DVD drive has max speed of 16X, the software you use to burn can vary this according to their default setting. ranging from 4-16 times. You can change these by opening the extra option boxes, when you are burning, or going into the settings for each of your burning programs. You should only have to do this once. It will remember your last setting. Good Luck!

    Hey, there I assume by your rating that the software setting idea didn't help. If so, let's try something else. Have you reinstalled all the drivers for your motherboard? Also what software are you using to burn? Have you changed any parts of your configuration and how?

I intalled model iHAS324-32 Y to replace iHDS 11807-4 and vista wont run with it. Tells me to uninstall it and contact manufacturer. I uninstalled it and system works fine again without the disc drive.


Is your vista a 64 bit OS? If so this dvd-writer is compatible with 32 bit OS. You may need to upgrade the firmware for it. Maybe this link can help LiteOn firmware search.
I've upgraded firmware for a dvd writer already with no bad consequences but I have crashed one of my motherboards trying to do the same. So if you're not comfortable doing it, get the people you bought it from or some techie to do it for you. Hope this helps

Write error message with liteon dvd writer..


I had the same issue with a liteon DVD drive I had. It worked fine and then one day it couldn't write to a DVD if I paid it to. I troubleshooted it for a few days, installed all the latest updates and patches and still nothing. From what I could tell, it baiscally died. So fortunately Liteons are relatively cheap so I just went out and got another LiteOn and it worked just fine. I would consider purchasing a new Drive.

Change the dvd writer speed


you did not specify the company name of your writer.
you can change the speed of your writer using a tool called Media Code Speed Edit (MCSE) which is able tomake your DVD writer read and writer faster. If youhave LiteOn, Benq, PHILIPS, HP, LG, NEC, newer PIONEER, Cyberhome,Gigabyte, Samsung and Artec DVD writers, you have a good chance to playwith MCSE and speed up your drive.

MediaCodeSpeedEdit allows you to change the write speed for your mediaand to add new media codes to your firmware by renaming an alreadyavailable media code. The new media code name can be entered manuallyor can be imported from the DVD Identifier media code output to be surethat no special characters are lost. This kind of media code renamingwill remove the original media code name from the patched firmware, soit is no longer supported by the firmware.

Real adding of additional media code names would mean to shift andextend all internal media code tables or patching all media codescanner for all supported firmwares, which would be a quite complextask. So don't do it if you don't know what you are doing.

MCSE basically hack or edit the firmware for your DVD writer and thenyou flash the hacked firmware to update your DVD writer to supportfaster read or write speed. If you don't know where to get your DVDwriter's firmware, you can head to Media CodeSpeed Edit forum to get help. Here is the link to download MCSE

My LH20A1p186c Lite on dvd writer will not do anything. A simple swap into my comp with 3 cables and the comp. does not recognize the new hardware. In fact both dvd and old cd player appear tp be one...


Check the Master Slave jumper on the back of the drives. If using 2 drives on 1 cable, make sure one is set to master and the other is set to slave. The jumper positions usually are labeled on the top of the drive as "M" and "S"

If you have them set to the same, both drives won't work.

If the drive is sharing cable with a hard drive, try changing the M/S setting.

Liteon DVD writer & re writer


You can not use cable select without the correct cable. Most "stock" cables are not. So...

An IDE port supports -2- drives (CD, HD, DVD, Etc). If you have 2 drive connected on the ribbon cable then one must be set to master and the other to slave (the little jumper clips on the back). If it's the only drive on that cable, set it to master. Some drive may say Master Only and Master with a slave.
