Lite-on dvdrw LH-20A1H problem

Hi,
I have installed a new lite-on dvdrw LH-20A1H drive which is having issues.
If I have been using either a CD or DVD and I eject the disc and insert a different disc it still shows the properties of the previous disc and will not display the contents of the new disc.
I would greatly appreciate any advice that I can get to resolve this problem.

Thanks& Regards

Andrew

    Thanks pk86bhat for your help.

    Whenever I have changed discs I have closed the program that was using that drive i.e media player or ripping software etc.

    I have found that by restarting the PC it will show the new contents of the new disc.

    However this is somewhat of a nuisance each time you want to change a disc.

    It is also more of a problem if you are installing software from multiple discs such microsoft office etc, which works fine until you get instructions to insert disc 2 etc, and it still displays the contents of the first disc.

    This problem has only arisen since I installed my new drive.



    Any more help on this would be greatly appreciated.



    Regards



    Andrew

My Lite-On DVDRW -LH-20A1L plays audio cd, reads date cd but does not play DVD movie's. Please Help?


Hi Mhlato,





    • Download and install CCleaner (free) from Piriform

    • Run the cleaner to remove old un-needed temp files

    • Select the StartUp tab and look for any programs that you know you installed but no longer use or need, and disable them. Caution, do not disable any system files unless you absolutely know what they do and that you do not need them.

    • Run the Registry cleaner, when asked if you want to backup the registry, select YES, and save to a file you will remember just in case. I have used this program hundreds of time on many different system and it has never caused a problem, but you want to be safe, backup the Registry.

    • If asked about a particular file that it wants to clean, select "yes to all"

    • Reboot



Windows should reinstall the drive when the computer boots back up.

If this does not resolve your problem, try the following.



If you take all these step and you still can not play a DVD, chances are your CD/DVD player needs to be replaced. Good Luck,

    • If this helps resolve your issue, would you please rate the solution.

I have the Lite On DVDRW LH-20A1H it shows the DVDs are full and will not record on them will play a dvd that I have previously recorded but shows all DVDs as full works fine with CDs. Recently had to...


Try to isolate the problem by using the drive with another computer. If its showing the same problem then your drive is probably busted. Also, try to change data sables, see if that will help. Have a good one.

Lite On LH-20A1H DVD RW burner refuses to recognize DL disks?


I have an LH-20A1S, & I am using Roxio Easy CD
Creator 6; Yes, I know there are newer versions, but they all ****! Anyway, it USED to work just fine in recognizing DL DVD's W/the updates from Roxio's site. & now there is no option there for this size (8.5)w/in the actual Creator prog. Is it the drive? This JUST started happening recently. Any clue if it IS the drive? & if so, any idea what caused this? I've always used Lite-On's & have NEVER had this sort of prob before! & of course it is out of warranty, & a discontinued model to boot! standar DVD drives are real cheap inprice these days, but STILL I do't wanna have to buy an new one if I can 'fix' it. BTW, I have updated the latest firmware for this drive from Lite-On's site too, & it didn't resolve this issue either!

Unplug and plug in the powercable then try again. Be sure that the cable goes in the powerslot as far as it needs.

Good luck to you

Software problem


Nero needs to be uninstalled (using Nero Clean Tool) and then reinstalled after you have added a new lightscribe DVD drive. To correctly uninstall Nero go to Nero website to download Clean Tool application specific to your version of Nero. http://www.nero.com/nero7/enu/Clean_Tools.html
