    dear Drumernick-i'm not sure how a firmware update would help with the physical problem of the units actually putting deep gouges on brand new disks. i thought firmware upgrades were to update any drivers or software that might cause problems like recorder not burning a disk properly so that a disk that was once readable is not readable-although it had been ok and readable on other sources or unit freezing up, etc.. i used high quality liteon mfgr recommended brand name +-RW disks, so that i could erase and reuse disks.how does firmware upgrades address the physical damage the lvw5005 made by deeply gouging the disks-making them useless. can you expalin, please?

This is a common problem with the Lite-on LVW range of DVD recorders due to changes in the construction of more recent DVD R media. It can be solved with a relatively simple firmware upgrade.

You'll need to have a blank CD and a CD/DVD writer in the PC you use to download the file.

Follow the instructions on the website to upgrade your firmware, this should then allow you to write to DVD's once again.

Liteon DVD Player LVW-5115GHC+ Disk Tray stuck


The tray is either broken, or off track. You may be able to get it back on track by opening the cover and checking it out, but unplug it first, and only try this if warrantee is over and you're feeling brave...

After formatting the disk, it reads that it is an invalid disk.


I have a Liteon LVW-1107. It is a very tempramental machine. It tends to prefer +R or +RW disks. Will record on -Rs but may fail with them.
On occasion when I insert a store bought DVD movie I will get an
invalid disk warning. The machine seems to get confused.

What I do is pull the power cord and let it set a few minutes.
Give it a little time to reset. Sometimes you have to do this a couple times. It has always worked for me. I hope it will work for you.

Good luck. This is not a top of the line machine.
