There are two common causes for these kinds of problems: software doesn't match, or media doesn't match. also, there a lack of info in here. is drive capable of reading dvd's when it is used for other purposes? 1. are you sure you got the right firmware? check for updates on brand site or on google. 2. try using several types of media from diffrent brands. some drives cannot read specific media (for instance, sony drivers sometimes having trouble with JVC media). 3. the least common, but worst option by far is a hardware problem. if drive is bad, you should try and replace it in case your warrenty didnt expire.

Windows 7 wont recognize dvd when i put hallmark card studio in dvd player

Try cleaning the disc (clean cloth going from middle out, not in circles). On the computer that does read the disc, try copying the disc contents onto a flash drive and then try installing the program from the flash drive instead of the disc if the computer still refuses to read it after cleaning the disc.

Lite on burner will write but cant read

Now I LIKE Liteon very much. THey never give me any trouble and as long as you keep the lense clean, they burn for years upon years to come. Okay, so it CAN write, but can't read? Very odd indeed. I would strongly suggest first buying a CD Lense Cleaner disc. Don't be cheap. Get Memorex or Scotch 3M. I would Suggest Memorex because the brushes on THAT disc are SPECIALLY-designed to clean the lense, but NOT to damage it. Next, try installing Nero Ultra Edition and do a Burn-in or a Read/Write test with a CLEAN CD or DVD and see if it will tell you the Read/write data rate. If the lense is just a BIT dirty, it WILL give you those kind of problems.

I put in a dvd/rw disc and it will not read it. in My Computer it comes up as a blank disc (cd)

Make sure the discs you are using are compatible with your drive. Some drives will burn dvd - r discs but not dvd + r discs. Hope this helps.

Can lite-on-ltn4865 48x play dvd movies

If your Drive is a CD-Rome drive, surely it cant, for the drive cant read dvd disc. Replace the drive of yours with DVD-Rom or DVD-RW in order to play dvd disc, DVD-RW simply has the added capablity to burn on DVD discs

My lite-on DVD writer is not reading any dvd's as well not writing any DVD's while it is good for CD's..... What is the problem?? How can i correct my DVD writer

Hi Please try and use a different brand of DVD discs. DVD disc quality is sometimes an issue with lite-on drives Also check that you have updated drivers and your media burning software is installed correctly. Again if your using NERO this can be a problem. Try using any other burning software One other thing to try when recording DVDs set the recording speed to lowest Many Thanks Andy

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.

My Lite On DVDRW will not recognize any audio cd's...

Hi PhxROcker,

In these drives there are two lasers and two pick-up sensors. Normally in a combined head. One set is used for the DVD and the other is used for the CD. From you description it sounds like the optical sensor for the CD laser has expired! When you place a CD into the drive a small amount of information is read by the drive that identifies the disc type, manufacturer, it's status, capacity etc. If the drive cannot read this then it thinks nothing is present.

If you insert a disc does the LED on the front the the unit flash a few times while it spins the disc. Does it do this repeatedly? If it fails to read the disc does the LED stop blinking and the drive no longer spins the disc? If this is the case then your drive may indeed be faulty.

Sorry I could not be of any further assistance.

Regards,

Spare head 2.
