Uninstall and reinstall the driver. Make sure you have the latest driver compatible with your operating system. You should be able to find one doing a google or going to the manufacturer's website. Hope that helps...

    Try using a cd disk cleaner. There are many kits available cheaply on the market. It could be that the lens is dirty.
    However, it could also be that the lens is broken/defunct. In this case, get a competent technician to take a look at it and replace the lens if necessary. Hope that helps..

    to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! or Helpful

Thats a very unusual problem. I have had this drive in the past and apart from being noisy as all lite-on's seem to be it has given great service. the only suggestion i can make is that you update the firmware by going onto Lite on's site and download the latest revision of firmware. if still the same then can only assume the drive or your burning software is corrupt.

assuming you have used this make of media before and tried other discs incase you have a bad batch, it could be that your drives laser itself is starting to fail when reading certain media, although it may still be able to read cd's and DVD it may fail with CDR and/or DVD-RW discs.

I intalled model iHAS324-32 Y to replace iHDS 11807-4 and vista wont run with it. Tells me to uninstall it and contact manufacturer. I uninstalled it and system works fine again without the disc drive.


Is your vista a 64 bit OS? If so this dvd-writer is compatible with 32 bit OS. You may need to upgrade the firmware for it. Maybe this link can help LiteOn firmware search.
I've upgraded firmware for a dvd writer already with no bad consequences but I have crashed one of my motherboards trying to do the same. So if you're not comfortable doing it, get the people you bought it from or some techie to do it for you. Hope this helps

You shouldn't need it unless your needing the Nero program that came with it.

If thats what you need will have to contact lite-on to get one.

Here is the web link to get drivers and software if you need it:

Select optical storage. Select your model number.
