Question about Lite On PC Desktops

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.

The pc wont let me burn the imesh tunes on to cd.it says error.how would i know if i have a re-writer


if the cd has been written to already, you cannot write on it again. If the cd says CD +/- R, then it is not rewritable, look for a CD that says +/- RW. If it doesn't say either of those, a regular cd looks light grey, while a rewritable is usually a lot darker.

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.

LG super multi drive identified as CDROM by Windows XP


First, thank you for the excellent description. I wish more FixYa clients would provide complete information like that.

Unless you are having problems, I wouldn't worry about the product designation in XP since it's LG drive that is identifying it as such during XP's device discovery routine. Your new LG drive can handle all of the different DVD rewritable formats - i.e. DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, and DVD-RW - so it appears that it is just using the first as its designator.

In my laptop, my LG DVD writer is designated as follows in Device Manager:

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T10N ATA Device


LG describes it as a "Slim DVD Super-Multi Drive". I've had no problems with it, and it has worked flawlessly to burn CDs and DVDs.
