My lite on LH20A1S no longer read dvds just cds, and those dvd that I burn show up as empty dvds =(


Probably laser has gone bad--I would go to walmart and purchase a new one and see if that one works, if it doesn't, then you will know it's a software problem and just return it.

Otherwise I would replace it--they are usually under $40

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!

No DVD sound LiteOn LH-20A1L


The audio lines from the DVD player should be hooked up to the sound card.  If the two audio wires are not connected, no audio will happen.

Not recognized


Go into your BIOS and see if you can get it to autodetect the drive. You should be able to this but I can't tell you how to because all BIOS setups are different.

Then save your BIOS and reboot.

The drive should then be recognised as the right thing.

Hope this helps

My LH20A1p186c Lite on dvd writer will not do anything. A simple swap into my comp with 3 cables and the comp. does not recognize the new hardware. In fact both dvd and old cd player appear tp be one...


Check the Master Slave jumper on the back of the drives. If using 2 drives on 1 cable, make sure one is set to master and the other is set to slave. The jumper positions usually are labeled on the top of the drive as "M" and "S"

If you have them set to the same, both drives won't work.

If the drive is sharing cable with a hard drive, try changing the M/S setting.

Lite-on DVD R/W combo LH-20A1L BLO5 Blank discs not recognized


Have you checked device manager to see if you have a yellow checkmark on your DVD./CD drives? if ok, sounds to me like the maker of the LH-20A1l BLO5 either needs to fix your problem or replace it. The Nero 7 should enable it to work correctly.
