SOURCE: My Lite-On combo sohc-5236v does not read CD but it reads DVD.

The reason for this is most likely Copyright protection. If this is the case, it will read DVDs as it is only a DVD-ROM, but what happens in the case of CDs, is that they recognise the drive as a Burner, and the Copyright that is embedded into the CD wont let the drive read it. This also happens with DVDs in some DVD burners.

The way to test this, is by getting a CD-RW disc that has music or files on it, put it in the drive, and see if it reads it. If it doesn't, then you may have a fault with the drive, but if it does read the CD-RW, then the only way round it that I know of, is to buy a CD-ROM drive and use both drives.

Does not recognise disc


reading ability on lite on will dropped drastically. you can use other writer to burn that disk to minimum speed such as 4X.
then try it on your lite on.
if still cannot be recognized mean the optical sensor is broken or dirty.

Comdo fail to read DVDs'


  1. Check its DVD reading speed
  2. Try reading a prerecorded or original DVD disk for a movie for example, if it can read this then it means the DVD you are tryng to read were burnt at speed faster than what your DVD can read.
