Straighten-out a thick paperclip and push it into the small hole just below the tray, usually towards the center-left. It must be pushed in straight, and when you meet resistance, use a little force. This is the drive's "emergency open" system.
Get the disk out and then replace the drive with a different brand like Samsung, HP, Plextor, etc.

My lite-on combo sohc 5235 is not recognized as a dvd/cd writer but only cd after having my computer reformatted... i lost the installer... what to do please?

XP should recognize it any way.
Nero capabilities depends on clean install/version of itself.

XP SP3 runs fine with Nero 7 again without that mindexerror popup

Propably you installed SP3 and had Norton also there being the virus?

Need drivers

If Windows detects and installs your hardware, let it do so and relax.

If you install Nero, and it then detects and installs your hardware, again let it do so and relax.

If neither of the above work, next time you use you will normally get a good driver for anything that is currently not working.

If you wanna download, try this:

However, this claims to be firmware, while then giving instruction on installing a driver so I can't be sure which it is. I haven't tried this last link.

Have you tried the pin-hole yet ?
There should be a tiny hole on the front of the unit. Insert a pin and that should open it.

I would suggest cleaning the drive with a cleaning dvd, $19.99 at most retailers. Or you can open up your computer and verify all connections to the drive are good, disconnect and re-connect to be sure. Hope this helps.
