Computer won"t recognize new drive E

Philips LITE_ON DVD Writer won't open

Posted by on

  • ginaginabina Feb 17, 2008

    My Hard drive used to be C until I installed this burner and now it reads E and a lot of things I try to download won't work now because it is searching for the stuff on my C drive but it isn't C anymore it is E. Any thoughts? Does this have to do the pins on the burner cord reading slave and master and such. HELP

The belt inside may be worn, try opening it manually through the hole in front.

COMPUTER NOT READING IT, NOT BEING RECOGNIZED BY COMPUTER


Turn your computer off, and unplug the AC power.

Open up your computer, and unplug the "data" and "power" cables from the DVD-drive, and then reconnect them. Check that the "other" end of the "data" cable is firmly attached to the motherboard.

Reconnect the power, and restart the computer.
Press DEL to enter BIOS-setup mode.
Is the DVD-drive still not detected?

If it is not detected, it probably is electronically "dead", and needs to be replaced.

XP should recognize it any way.
Nero capabilities depends on clean install/version of itself.

XP SP3 runs fine with Nero 7 again without that mindexerror popup

Propably you installed SP3 and had Norton also there being the virus?

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.

Software problem


Nero needs to be uninstalled (using Nero Clean Tool) and then reinstalled after you have added a new lightscribe DVD drive. To correctly uninstall Nero go to Nero website to download Clean Tool application specific to your version of Nero. http://www.nero.com/nero7/enu/Clean_Tools.html
