Lite-on DDW-813s I actually have a yamada DVR-9000H which has the same drive and the same problems as I have seen asked everywhere. Any idea what Lite-on drive I could use to replace it?

    My 5005A was performing just fine, then it stopped ejecting! When I power up
    the drive makes some whirling sounds but it does not eject. This appears to be a OEM specific drive unlike the standard internal drives made by Lite-On.
    I believe I could get back to normal operation if I could just replace it.

Open the drive (dont break it). Eject the tray, under the tray you should see a small belt drive. Replace the belt with a rubberband of approximatly the same size (a little smaller wont hurt). Re-assemble the drive and it should eject fine. Lite-On drives seem to go through these belts pretty quick, I have fixed hundreds this way. Never had one I fixed come back for the same problem.

I've got a Lite-on 5005. And I'm not using it any more. But I would like to use the converter, from "scart in" to "comp out", build in the 5005. The 5005 preforms a check at start-up whether the DVD/CD player is ok. Now I don't need the DVD/CD element, so is there a option to disable this check? So I can put the hole thing in a smaller box.

I hope is nothing more then using a jumper on the 40pins connector.

thank you, Tom

Throw it away and replace it with a newer recorder. those old liteon's had really bad compatability and recording quality

Error code

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} If you’re any good with computers, it’s a standard hard disk - you can take it out very easily, stick it in a PC, and format it. That should work OK. If you’re not any good with computers, maybe you know somebody who is? Apart from that, to take it out, you just open the case, disconnect a ribbon cable, a power cable (plugs for both just pull out) and 4 screws, then out it comes.

Alternatively, you could get a very big hammer and smash it to pieces, which is what I feel like doing with mine...
