Question about Lite On Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a LiteOn 8x external slim DVD/CD writer & reWriter that will not complete a DVD or CD write. My system tray indicates the device is working correctly. The box came with a USB cable and a power cable, but I cannot find anywhere on the unit to plug in the power cable. The unit will not read any commercial CD either. My model number is DX-8A1H 05C; S/N: 667808418436. I received this unit with a broken NERO installation disk, which you asked me to replace with a download, but downloads were only for upgrades, and since I didn't have anything installed, I had to purchase a new program. I've had this unit about 6 months, and have yet to get any use out of it. Ella Mae Hudson

The power is often recieved from the usb cable but not always. what does the power connector end look like ?

as for nero. there are freeware programs for burning disks that you can download to at least test the device.

Can I play store bought dvds on my new memorex slim external cd/dvd writer? The box says yes but when I install, it just shows the movie name and won't do anything


If it is just a writer then no but I have never heard of just a writer and mostly they are designated a reader/writer when they should be able to read whatever they are capable of writing - if the computer has the right software installed that is.

It could be you need to instal a suitable media player or dvd player software.

How do i increase my dvd rw drive speed


Not all "blank" disks are alike.
Some support only '4X' or '8X' writing-speed.
So, buy blank disks that support '48X' writing-speed.

Not all DVD-writers are alike.
Some support only '4X' or '8X' writing-speed.
Upgrade to a DVD-writer that supports '16X' or '32X' writing-speed.

Not all USB ports are alike.
USB 1.1 ports support 11Mbits/second,
while USB 2.0 ports are about 10 times as fast.
Check that your USB device is connected to a USB 2.0 port, not a USB 1.1 port.
