[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On SOHW-1633S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi, I’m a grandmother who’s learning so please explain things as simply as possible. My problem is the LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-1633S won’t read or write. It just seems to grind when I put in a CD-R or DVD+R.
My D Drive is at 93% because I can write the recovery disks.
Are there common steps to diagnosing the problem?

The HP support site says that the DVDRW can’t be updated for this system.
Can it be repaired? crossflashed? updated with freeware?
Please help. Thanks in advance.
