Click here to view full specs.[/qanda]My LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-1693S quit working alltogether. It’s still connected, still lights up, in My computer it’s still an active drive and I can eject it by clicking eject, but it won’t play or burn anything. When I go into my computer and right click on the drive, then go to properties under the General tab there is no name for the drive and it says the file system is unknown. This sucks. I’ve tried to download a new driver for the drive and install it, but it didn’t work. I don’t want to go out and buy a new one, but if I have to…  Please help. Thanks Tobias

Welcome to the forum Tobias :slight_smile:

What about in Device Manager - is there any yellow exclamation mark alongside the drive entry?
