I purchased a LiteOn internal 18x dvd-rom drive for my emachines computer when the original died. I tried putting the disk to set up the operating program in the drive, and it will open and close and that's it. Can you advise?

Is there a button in front of the drive (like a drive bay cover) if so the drive could be pused to far forward if not it could be that there is something stuck in the drive so it is not registering that it has closed properly. See if it does it outside of the system if it does and its still in warranty take it back :)

Considering your firmware and drivers are up-to-date and completely installed; the computer should show you the information relative to the drive. It may be, that the internal CD/DVD drive is defective and needs replacement. If you do not want to mess with replacing the existing drive, I suggest you go to BestBy or WalMart and purchase an EXTERNAL (Clamshell type) USB to plug into the computer port and bypass the internal drive completely. These drives are about $30 and do everything the original internal drive dose. Including Burning Disks.

Asus e818a3t is recognized as a DVD-ROM only. I can no longer write CDs after my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit install. Windows says the driver is installed and everything is working properly. Obviously not!


Hello there,

Try this trick,

1. Go to Hardware Profile and Remove your Asus ROM profile.
2. Shutdown your Machine -
3. Remove the Asus ROM from your Sata Connector.
4. Turn your Computer ON without that ROM
5. Shutdown it again, and Reconnect your ROM to those Sata connectors
6. Comment back here if still not working. :)


Cheers!

I need to fix a problem with my Sony DVD RW DRU- 180A. I get error code 39. The computer doesn't seem to recognize the DVD player.


More than likey a fault in the DVD player.

Did it work recently?? If so then probably faulty.

Check internal cable and even try another one, I have had the occasional cable fail.

Emachine EL1200 won't burn dvd's.


I researched the Emachine EL1200 and it IS equipped with a DVD burner so there is no reason it shouldn't work. Return it while it is still under warranty. There is a 1 year warranty.

If it is out of warranty (system is older than 1 year), the drive can be replaced.

Write error message with liteon dvd writer..


I had the same issue with a liteon DVD drive I had. It worked fine and then one day it couldn't write to a DVD if I paid it to. I troubleshooted it for a few days, installed all the latest updates and patches and still nothing. From what I could tell, it baiscally died. So fortunately Liteons are relatively cheap so I just went out and got another LiteOn and it worked just fine. I would consider purchasing a new Drive.

Install LITEON 18X Super AllWhiteDVD/CD Writer&Rewriter Serial no 1502-4020-1203-0757-1127-2659


Lost your DVD Writer means ?
Does it stopped working !
Open The cabinet of the CPU and check the IDE Channel
BUS- cable if that is plugged properly.Also check if the Power plug is properly inserted to your DVD Rom,

If both are checked properly, get the lense of the DVD checked in service center. maximum of the CD/DVD problem arises due to damage in the lense. Anyways, The cost of the lense comes to be almost equal to the DVD ROM price  :)

Pease rate if this fixes your problem

Dvd player on lite on not working


Try to buy a Head-cleaning disk and follow the instructions that comes with it on how to clean the player. Or ask a guide to use the CD lens cleaner.
After cleaning try using the drive... If not repeat cleaning process 3x
If it fails then the drive needs total replacement.

Good luck...

Unable to read some of the DVDs......


It's possible that the drive has died. CD and DVD drives are notorious for short lives but then I've seen some last 5 years. The lens could be dirty, just a small piece of lint is enough to cause hassles. Try using a Lens cleaner, available from all good audio shops. Some machines don't like +R disks and a firmware upgrade is needed. I've done many Liteon Drives with terrific results but if the manufacturer hasn't put one out then you're lost. It's possible you've used the wrong upgrade to fix your problem. With the prices of drives today it's sometimes cheaper to replace it. Believe me they can die quickly, my record is a week from brand new to unuseable and that was a Sony. BMW
