Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a LiteOn cd/dvd recorder (no hard drive, records right onto the disk). It has, after several years of light use, just become unable to eject a disk. Is there some workaround like the old paper clip trick for floppy disks?

    Well, I wouldn't be surprised if my needle is somewhere in that haystack, and I didn't know about the site before, so thanks for your help.

    I'll keep looking, the most helpful thing I've seen there so far looks like I need to take the machine apart and find out what's jamming the disk tray/cup holder. I'll give that a try in a few days.

A CD-R empty disk is not recognized by the CD drive for transfering data onto hard disk. Do I need to format ? how?


It should work by itself, if the drive can write the CD-R and it's not damaged.

Go to My Computer, right-click on the CD icon and check in Properties, under the "Recording" tab, that recording is allowed. Then under AutoPlay, check Operations and try selecting 'Record' (it shouldn't be necessary, but let's do that for luck).

Otherwise, you can always use a third-party utility - for Windows XP a very good one is CDburnerXP, freeware (I have two other CD-R programs which cost several $$$, but find myself using CDburnerXP since it's faster and way less bloated. Your mileage, as always, may vary).

Will not record onto blank DVD's from HDD on LVW-5045 HDD-DVD 160 gb


Hi Barry - I too have a Lite-on and was initially over the moon with it. For the last year or so I have been unable to "read" disks and was just using it for the hard drive for recording - but this weekend my father in law had the exact same problem occur to his Lite-on and he bought a dvd cleaner (£5) - used it and it solved it - So I tried it and presto mine is reading and writing fine again - I was so chuffed - need to share this simple info just in case its a simple "dust" problem for anyone else that is having reading problems. DVD cleaner not just a CD cleaner as DVD cleaners have two brushes on it.

Lost recording software kit


If you lost the software, you can try contacting LiteOn for a replacement, but you'll probably have to go to your local tech store and buy more software. I recommend Nero or Easy CD/DVD Creator, or get the opinion of someone that works there. Make sure you do NOT open it until you get home and check online that it has the features you need, as you will be unable to return it if you open it.
