Question about Lite On (SOHW-1633S-02C ) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Lite-On DVD Writer running slow

My Lite-ON 16X DVD writer has become slow off late. It takes a lot of time to write as well as copy DVD's, and sometimes fails to read discs. Also the written DVD's are sometimes not detected.

Is there any solution other than cleaning the lens by opening the drive or using a Lens Cleaner ? It is out of warranty.

Yes you can purchase a cd that has a cleaning device on it. You place the dvd in the slot and read the prompts on your computer. you can by them at local best buy or computer store.

A cd broke inside my dvd writer while using it, and now it wont eject


on the left side of the front pannel just under the drawer you will see a pinhole.turn your cd unit upside down and insert a straightened paperclip in the hole keeping it straight as possible,the drawer should open enough to allow you to grip it .
if no luck you will have to remove the case top and manually remove the disc..
hope this helps.....Len..

    Slow Writer


    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!
