Dvd unit Liteon sohw-1653S does not read audio cds anymore nor blank cd/dvd

i all

i am new to this site, well ,today i tried burning an audio cd with roxio easy cd and dvd media creator and just when it was about 87 % complete i got a burning error which i did not read cuz i assumed the cd was done so i just clicked ok,then i noticed it was not succesfully burned but right after that, the dvd unit did not read nor play cd or cdrom cds anymore, it can still read and play dvds though, any help will be appreciated. I updated firmare to no avail, i can only play dvd dics now, when i try to burn either cd or dvd it says,please insert blank cd as if there was no cd/ dvd inside the unit.

     I even deleted roxio easy media creator but it still has the same problem, the device manager hardware says the lite on dvdrw sohw-1653S is working fine.... 
     Please be specific and give step-by-step instructions to help solve this problem

I have a Piv ,windows xp , 512 memory and 22,8 gb free hard disk space, Lite-on dvdrw sohw-1653S

Hi all

    Hey is anybody ever going to reply or at least try to help me ????????

Well, since nobody else has replied,
I’ll venture a guess that the CD Laser has failed.
If so it’s time to start shopping for a new drive. :slight_smile:
