Problem with LITE-ON DVDRW SHW-160P6S ATA Device

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available.

I check for driver updates and it says i have the correct and most up to date driver but my computer still doesn't recognise it.

Can you help???

There is a whole bunch of helpful stuff at http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/196090-32-lite-dvdrw-160p6s-burning-problems
Seems that the drive may overheat, and will need replacement if in warranty. Some advice given: get another type drive. Also, check the device manager and make sure it's running in DMA mode and not PIO mode. If you have an nForceX mobo and using the SW IDE driver, reinstall with the normal IDE driver and try again. In device manager, check under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Right-click and select properties on the IDE Channel your DVD recorder is attached to. Transfer mode should be set to "DMA if available". Current transfer mode should be "Ultra DMA Mode 4". If it says Mode 2: Your drive may be experiencing problems which are causing windows to drop its speed. There is a support article with a fix. To surmize:

After the Windows IDE/ATAPI Port driver (Atapi.sys) receives a cumulative total of six time-out or cyclical redundancy check (CRC) errors, the driver reduces the communications speed (the transfer mode) from the highest Direct Memory Access (DMA) mode to lower DMA modes in steps. If the driver continues to receive time-out or CRC errors, the driver eventually reduces the transfer mode to the slowest mode (PIO mode).

If you have dropped from DMA mode 4 to DMA mode 2, and you have a spare ribbon cable, you may want to try swapping it out. Also, if there is another device on the same channel as the DVD drive, try disconnecting it.

IMHO this Lite-On model,

Except it is faster, will read, and burn dual layer disks, and also has LightScribe Technology.

(LightScribe Technology is from HP. You have to use HP disks, (CD or DVD) that are made for LightScribe Technology)

This is the specifications of the Lite-On SHW-160P6S for you to compare against,

Says I dont have a dvd burner and I have this one installed.. lite-on DVDRW SHW-160P6S..I can't burn a cd...any help? Sorry for the dumb question you guys!


do it only if u r a professional..

open it up, with the lens assembly there is a small preset, turn it using a screw driver a little anti-clockwise..clean the lens with clean cotton using isopropyl alcohol..
if not done, replace the lens assembly..
or else, replace the drive with a standby n see..

i gotta know: is ur drive pata/sata and the device make n model..
assuming that ur drive is pata, n u r a professional n aware of bios/cmos setup utility handling..!!
open up ur system cabinet and see if all the data cables n jumper settings at the back of the drives (master/slave selection)..itz most important..!!
however, at the bootup (0.29sec) start pressing briskly the key to enter cmos utility or bios setup (eg. F1/F2/F10/Del as applicable)..glance in the standard settings if r detected individually..change the 'Mode' if m/b is hybrid type(both SATA+PATA) : Native/Compatible/Enhanced (as applicable)..
see if ur device needs any additional driver or not, if so try downloading..
also try checking itz data cable for loose or faulty..
above all explanation is applicable only if itz not being detected by the m/b or system..(not for reading or writing problem)..

contact ur system admin/vendor....

Light_On dvdrw SHW-160p6s working properly but doesn't read anyth


Hi,

Thanks for coming to FixYa, The problem you have is either a well documented software problem or a failing drive.

Click the below link, then scroll down and click the "Fix It" button. Follow the onscreen instructions, restart when it's done and see if your drive re-appears. If it does, you're done, if it doesn't work then your drive is most likely failed and you should replace it.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Disc Drive won't read after upgrade to Vista Ultimate


I had a disc Drive that wouldn't work for a while. There are a few things that could be wrong. The first thing I would try is to make sure it's pluged in all the way to both the Motherboard and the Disc Drive. Maybe it wasn't secure in there and when you bumped you computer just a little bit, it got unpluged. The wire connecting the Disc Drive to the Motherboard is probably your thinkest wire, can't miss it.

this next thing I would try is to delete the driver for your Disc Drive and then restart your computer. It should detect it automatically and have it running correctly.

If all else fails, go to Google. Type in the name of your Driver and search for an install that is supported on your operating system.
