    Drive reads DVD format as well as game-program disks fine, but blanks and audios are no longer recognized, read something about CD-IR diode on another site but am unsure how this helps? Updating drivers and rolling back to older drivers had zero effect, opened the case, all connections are good...can anyone help?

I would suggest cleaning the drive with a cleaning dvd, $19.99 at most retailers. Or you can open up your computer and verify all connections to the drive are good, disconnect and re-connect to be sure. Hope this helps.

Hello Mario,

I have tried to look for a direct link to the driver software you requested for on the website of LITE ON America and this is the link for it:

http://www.liteonit.com/DOWNLOADS/ODD/SOHC-5232K/firmware/CO52NK0J.zip

just click on the link, download and then install it for your LiteOn SOHC 5232k CD-RW/DVD Drive.

Once again the link is:

Kindly let me know how it goes.
