Hi,

Ok so the problem is with dvdplayer not reading the discs right?

Load a disc and listen.Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.

If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired or replace your dvd player it is a defective one.

How do I connect a 20X super all write to a Dell Dimension 1100 computer .The pins on the data lead apear to be different and the power lead apears to be missing from the unit I purchased.


Hi,

To my understanding, your new Lite-On LH-20A1L 20x Super AllWrite DVD±RW/RAM is a SATA whereas your Dell Dimension 1100 has only DMA/ATA-100 (Ultra) EIDE. it will not work nor the connectors fit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I am looking for a hp lightscribe dvd supermulti drive/cd writer that is compatable with a hp pavilion a720n desk top computer and all so a dvd/cd rom combo that is compatable with ...


Any brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer with LightScribe *WILL* be compatible with your HP.
Check whether your "power" and "data" cables are the "old" style (white power connector and a 80-pin ribbon-cable) or the "new" style (thin SATA cables), before you buy a writer with the "wrong" (PATA versus SATA) interface.

Lightscribe dvd/cd super multi drive electing all by itself.


It may be a hardware problem. If it starts ejecting as soon as you switch on the system i.e. before booting into the operating system then it is definitely a hardware problem. Take the drive to the service centre and get it fixed. Or if it happens when you are using windows then it might be a prank program or a virus. Check your running processes and make sure all are right. (You can google the process name and check the results)

Lightscribe just allows you to burn images to lightscribe disks, you don't really need it anyway. Get an asus one they are awesome.

Files wrote to a DVD are not found when DVD loaded to another PC


could be that the firmware/drivers on your husbands dvd player needs to be updated. different brands and releases of readers/writers will not all write and read in the same format. look at his manual for his computer , note the cd/dvd formats the drive is capable of. Now do the same for your computer, noting the formats available.
Now that you have them both in front of you , you should be able to see a common format. Thats the one you want to select when burning a cd/dvd so that his computer will be able to read the disk.
Reagrds.

The Drive you purchased is a SATA interface, the system you have uses Parallal ATA IDE interface.

You need to get a Drive with an IDE interface for that system.
