I was having a problem getting my dvd (Lite-On LH-20A1P) to read my cds. I found a very simple solution that worked for me. I hope the following procedure works for others.

I have windows xp (I believe this solution may work for other window versions)

Go to "My Computer" on desktop (or in Start) and right click on it.

Click "Properties"
On the tabs at the top, click on "Hardware"
Click on "Device Manager"
Click the plus sign beside "DVD/CD ROM drives"
Double-click on Lite-On
On the tabs at the top, click on "Properties"
At the bottom, there is a box that is most likely checked that reads...
"Enabled digital CD audio for this CD-Rom device"

Uncheck it.

Do the same for all DVD/CD Rom devices you may have.

This simple solution worked for me. Now both my DVD and CD Roms are reading all of my cds.

I would suggest trying this simple step first before downloading any drivers or buying any 'Driver Update' programs - which may cause you even more problems than you are already having.

Hi,

Thanks for coming to FixYa, The problem you have is either a well documented software problem or a failing drive.

Click the below link, then scroll down and click the "Fix It" button. Follow the onscreen instructions, restart when it's done and see if your drive re-appears. If it does, you're done, if it doesn't work then your drive is most likely failed and you should replace it.

Hope this helps FixYa,

My PIONEER DVDRW DVR-K15 ATA Device read cd no DVD


have you had any virus infections? I would download malware bytes and rootkit revealer to see if you have any viruses or rootkits you should email me at cringer.smith@gmail.com
and you might have a rootkit that is causing issues with the dvd read/write. otherwise a failing device.
you could also burn puppylinux on a cd, run it and see if you can pop in a dvd and see if it reads the media. if so you are looking at a windows software file or virus issue.
