Of late I am seeing that the LiteOn LH20A1P that I have on my computer is very slow in reading as well as writing. It goes only upto 8x while reading. I am using SONY 20x DVD discs. Is there any way to...

Thats a very unusual problem. I have had this drive in the past and apart from being noisy as all lite-on's seem to be it has given great service. the only suggestion i can make is that you update the firmware by going onto Lite on's site and download the latest revision of firmware. if still the same then can only assume the drive or your burning software is corrupt.

You could change brands of "blank" disks, until you find one that it can handle.

Or, you could disassemble the LiteOn device, remove the DVD-writer, connect it to a computer,
verify that it does read/write while connected.

If it is OK, then update the firmware, disconnect it from the computer, and reimplant the DVD-writer, and reassemble.

Tray won't open and if you hit the button enough the light comes on thats it.

This DVD drive has a small processor in it. The button sends a signal to the processor to open the door. The processor then turns the light on and the door is supposed to open.
This unit is broken and needs to go to a shop as the IC that opens the door is probably bad.
Try this: get a paper clip and find the small hole in the door. This will manually open the door. Then use the button to close it. It could also be a mechanical failure..

You just answered your question......."all drivers I assume present and ok" update your old are the drivers for WIN98? how old are the drivers for XP. These are relevant to having the correct drivers for the correct operating system. The benefit for you is that you are running to operating systems seperately on two drives or am I mistaken. They need an update on the drivers for each OS and not a firmware update one is hardware the other is software? Your problem is the software.
