Lite-On DVDRW SHM-165P6S



Hi everyone,
I bought Lite-On’s SHM-165P6S today, got it physically installed, but am now having problems everything else. There are no drivers installed for my new drive. I tried looking on lite-on’s website, and indeed all over the web, with no luck. Can anyone help me?

kind regards,


You don’t need drivers…Windows (which I assume you’re using) should just pick the drive straight up.

Does Windows even detect the drive? Does it show in Device Manager or My Computer?

If not, just to establish there’s power going to the drive…can you eject it, are there any lights working on the front of the drive?

BTW, welcome to CDF :slight_smile:


Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

As always [B]Arachne[/B] preceeded me and made me edit post :doh:

I suggest also to check that jumpers (master/slave) are set correctly. Do you have also other drives on your computer?


Are you running Win98? Only Win 98 sp2 and up are compatible with DVD.


LOL, I forgot about Win98 (1st edition) :doh:
