Question about Lite On LVW-5005 DVD Recorder
The part required ***IS*** available duckie125!!!!!
I fixed my LiteOn LVW5005 by going to the local computer shop and buying a LiteOn 20x DVD Writer (the price tag on the box says AUD$33 but it's probably cheaper now).
I opened the DVD Recorder case, removed the old drive assembly and spent a little time figuring out how to clip the dvd recorder drive face onto the new drive assembly. The new drive assembly comes with a black, white and a silver face to suit your computer. Examine all these bits close up and you'll get the idea!!!
I also had to use long-ish M3 bolts (and nuts and washers, from my local hobby electronics outlet but any good bolt supplier or hardware outlet will do) to replace the mounts to the old drive assembly.
The key to getting a good life out of the dvd drive in this recorder is probably to keep the unit cool when it operates. I have it in a well ventilated rack unit with an extra box fan on the back of it. Also I put some small wooden blocks under the rubber feet to keep the air flowing underneath it too.
If you had been operating one for a while at an elevated temperature then I would be worried about the SM power supply going noisy. That would probably generate the peculiar behaviour cited by mmillerpro.
This machine has a well designed user interface, but its long term stability is questionable I think. Still, it wasn't bad value for money cos I got it so cheap. With the measures listed above and the standby of cheap replacement drives and the fall-back of firmware updates, I think I'll be using this dvd recorder for a while yet.......

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.
