LiteOn DVDRW -LH20A1P This will play

LiteOn DVDRW -LH20A1P

This will play some DVDs but not others. DVDs from DGG are particularly affected. The DVD will load and the menu will come up but when I select play from the menu nothing happens. The two DVDs I tried worked perfectly on my work laptop. XP Pro is the operating system for bith, the only difference is the DVD drive.

The liteon dvdrw will not burn a DVD


Perhaps you should reinstall the Sonic stuff, in case it was affected since the virus cleanup.  If the OS had some of its components quarantined from virus contamination, you are probably stuck reinstalling the OS...though of course you can search the web (and not least Microsoft.com if that's the sort of OS you use) for healing 'media detection' issues (w.r.t. your particular OS.)

My D drive (CD-RW) plays audio cds just fine but doesn't read DVDs (Movies). What's causing this problem? I own a dell dimension 4400 desktop. Thanks

Wanting to burn a dvd


No, it is a CDRW and DVD drive only. If it were to be able to burn DVDs, it would say DVDRW. Your drive will play DVDs, it just won't burn them.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

I am using someone elses computer right now because I do not have internet access on my computer. My problem is that I have purchased the Liteon internal DVD drive RW DVD R DL and it told me I had 30 days...


3 options:
1 - Uninstall the OEM software that came with the drive and install another media player (GOM player is great, though it has a few problems handlig DVD menus, but plays movies like a dream)
2 - Check if there is a form in the LiteOn box that you can send to the manufacturer to get the registration via mail
3 - Or just get a refund, because there is no law in any country stating that you must have an internet connection. If they sell the software in a package with the drive, unless it is clearly stating on the OUTSIDE of the box that it is a DEMO, they should provide you support.
