If your DVD recorder can still access CD's the goto the following link and select your DVD recorder from the drop down list under audio/video and download the firmware file.

It maybe the spindle motor that rotates the disc thats why there is no information read by the laser or the laser itself is the problem. if it is only the motor it can be replace but the laser it should be compatible or the same model. one simple thing to do open and try to clean the optical lens by a cotton buds gently rub around the lens and close and try.

Repair Technician (not Liteon's) for DVD 5005 told me that due to the parking of the laser reading head is off. The replacement of the drive is the solution. This is the headache for LiteOn since their marginal software/drive cannot keep par with their replacement in spite good electronics. They don't have enough replacement either. The tech also told me the replacement has to be specific. The same model drive suffix A is not compatible with suffix B. Due to shortage of replacement, he has to reset parking position of the head. This repair require a lot of skill. Therefore, I bought 2 late (16x) Liteon drives to replace one 5005 and one 5005x.
The repacement, physically unfit, performs OK except without CD-R/RW writing. 5005 does its re-calibration of laser writing differently for DVD and CD. Late drives concentrate on DVD writing, especially for double-layer, RAM and lightscribe writing.
Other brand drives can be used; unfortunately, you will lose fast search capability plus no CD writing. But you gain back the quality DVD writing which I always cherish on. That's only reason I bought 5006 as a "carry-on" when I failed physically fit the late vdrive onto 5005. The late drives were bought from Staple's clearance inventory in 2007. You can explore the late drive's availability.
Replacing also requires certain skill. Consult your technical friends. You can reach me through email to luthermei at yahoo dot com.
