Question about Lite On Lite-On SHM-165H6S DVD+R/RW -R/RW Drive - 16X DVD+R - 16X DVD-R - 8x Dual Layer +/-Support - Retail ... (LTNSHM165H6S) Burner
I can put any cd or dvd in and absolutely nothing will happen. I go to My Computer and it doesn't even show the drive. through devise manager I can find it but it says "Driver Cannot Start (code 10)" I have clicked on the "check for solutions" button but it does no good. Should I uninstall the driver and try to reinstall it- will that work? this is the driver that came in my HP
First ensure ya DVD is OK in BIOS, IE: Ensure the Drive Table shows it "Active". Otherwise the drive is faulty & must be replaced. If OK, Then Boot, & go to Device Manager & right click the DVD & "Uninstall Driver" when asked if you want to totally removal/remove all files say Yes. Then close down & turn power off, then open PC & disconnect the DVD drives Power & Data Cable.. then reboot.. Get to the desktop and then shutdown & Turn the PC OFF, then reconnect Power & Cable, restart PC. Windows should "Detect" the "New" DVD and pretty much "Just work".. it may ask for "Drivers" if you have got them, point it in the right direction of the Driver files & install If windows doesn't "Detect" & install driver & and pretty much "just work" after this.. then again your device is faulty. If it's not working, then ya gotta replace the DVD with a new one, when doing so, just do as above to install.. Connect Power & then the Data Cable, etc.. etc.. and ya should be all good.. as usually if it's a good one.. they just work..
