Question about Lite On LITE-ON SOHC-5236V COMBO BK OEM (SOHC5236VBKOEM) Burner

1 Answer

Burning problem I have the Lite-On SOHC 5236V drive and I am trying to burn a DVD on a Windows XP Professional PC. I am using Power2Go v5. The disc I am attempting to use is a Staples DVD-R 16x 4.7 GB. I get everything setup the way I want it, and the moment I click "Burn" the disc is ejected and the message says to "put in a writable disc." This is a writable disc and -R is a supported format for this drive. I tried a small file as a test to see if I was trying to burn too much and the same result. The drive plays DVDs fine. I just don't know what I am doing wrong. When I put in a blank disc it doesn't show any change in "My Computer" the way it normally should. I put the disc in my other drive (LG GGW H20L) and the icon changes to DVD-R etc.

Try different brand. Your Drive is a sensitive type and it only accepts some DVD-R brands. Also try DVD-RW disc. I had the same problem but not specifically the exact problem. My drive is cd writer only. Same problem, I just used diff CD-R brand like Imation and Philips and the burning works like a charm.

Lite-on Combo SOHC-5236v


You may be using the wrong type of DVD format. Some DVD-ROMs and players will only read certain discs. i.e. DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RAM. If you are trying to read a DVD-R disc that was bought blank, and then had things burned to it, it may be that the disc wasn't finalised after burning. You could always try updating the Firmware version by downloading it from the website.
