Hi,
Sorry I can't offer any help, but then again, even Liteon couldn't help and posted a notice on their website a while back stating that these units were subject to drive failure.

" DVD-RW Drive SOSW-852S
NOTE: This is a system integrator product. Due to compatibility concerns, which may cause drive failure, we are not able to provide any firmware upgrade for this product. For technical support, kindly contact your vendor."

Lite on dvdrw lh 20a1l wont play cds


Hmmmm.... Most new DVD drives have the problem.
Clean the cd with water and shampoo if it is having too much scratch. Try after drying. Is that helping?

NO? Is that CD working in other drives?

YES? Then you better replace the drive if it is under warranty.

My LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1H thinks its a cd burner???


It seems Lite-on Has a lot of Probs.In fact I had the same model on an SATA system.It would not burn dvd's or cd's.You can try updating your burning software,and reinstalling the drive through device manager.I actually ended up buying an LG burner....lo-and behold...it works without any problems.Good luck

Dvdrw sosw-852s(lite on)


sounds like you're suffering the jungle DVD fever disease, most likely from excess salt air exposure(same thing happens over here on Hawaiian islands). So, just swap out the DVD for another one, and mark your calendar for same drill in another year.

got backup for your computer?

Lite-on DVDRW SHW-160p65 DVD-RW drive


Where are you looking to recognize the disks? if it is in my computer in Windows it would most likely be because the Roxio software was what was recognizing the disks. generally Windows does not do a very good job of recognizing blank disks. I would look at the disk information in your current CD burning software and see what that says.
