Lite-On SOHW-1673S Failure

Hello,

I have reached the end of my rope with this problem. I had installed Musicmatch Jukebox 9 two nights ago. I didn’t like it so I uninstalled it. The following happened:

So I tried all sorts of things including uninstalling/reinstalling MS Media Player, yada yada yada. I finally re-installed Musicmatch JB 9, and TA-DA! Sound! Google back! Sony working! :smiley:

Big problem though: Lite-On DVD not working. I looked through all the forums, Googled all over the place, flashed the drive with latest and greatest from Lite-On. Nothing. :sad:

Here’s the symptoms: Put any sort of CD in the drive (music, data, previously made on the burner) or try to burn DVD and the unit spools up, then suddenly stops. The indicator light then flashes three times and that’s all she wrote. It is recognized in My Computer, but refuses to acknowledge there is a disk in it.

Any help or ideas anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
~~Tom

Uninstall NVidia’s ide drivers and use Microsoft native.

Well, thanks for the advice, but no joy: uninstalled NVidia’s ide driver, same problem. All indications are that it’s there, but it’s not reading anything. :sad:

If anyone has any ideas, PLEASE let me know.

Update firmware to latest JS0D. http://www.liteonit.com/ODD/English/e_downloads/e_firmware_dvd%20rw.asp

I’ve tried the suggestions made here to no avail. I had the opportunity to try installing it in another PC: while it could “see” the inserted disk, it would not display the files on it in explorer; it looked like an empty disk (which it was NOT.)

I have come to the conclusion that Lite-On products suck, and I have ordered a Plextor from Newegg. :Z

If anyone has further suggestions as to what to do with a Lite-On SOHW-1673S, and a Lite-On CD-ROM drive model LTN-529S that also failed after only several months, please send suggestions. Door stops? Bookends? Help me out, the Holidays are coming! :bigsmile:

Haha, good luck with your Plextor. :rolleyes:

-Evan-

Evan: I don’t see you providing any ideas! Perhaps you wish to purchase my dead drives so I can give my children presents this Holiday?

Instead of making a smart comment, how about some explaination? What’s the matter with Plextor? It can’t possibly be any WORSE than the, :Z ,two Lite-On’s that have gone belly up!

Best Wishes! :stuck_out_tongue:

I wouldn’t think you’d have money problems seeing as how you’ve spent 50-200% as much on a drive than you have to…

-Evan-

If your Lite-On failed after only several months why didn’t you return it for a replacement, Lite-On normaly gives a 2 year warranty. I been using Lite-On burners and CD drives for years and haven’t had any problems they all work fine. As for Plextor all I can say is wish you lots of luck I think you will need it. :iagree:

The only thing I use my Lite-Ons is to burn DVD and CD, As for suggestions for dead Plextors! Just take a look in the Plextor Forum there is 100’s of suggestions with all the trouble people are having with them.

I was going to suggest a return if they both failed in such a short time, But Coathi beat me to it.

D

I have received the Plextor, installed it and it works flawlessly. I actually burned a DVD, something I couldn’t do with the Lite-On. :bigsmile:

As for warranty assistance, I got no response from Lite-On regarding RMA’s or any help with the problems I’ve experienced. The kicker is that the drives were so cheap to buy, it makes no sense to spend any more money to ship them back for service. Lite-On has an excellent scam going, I must say. :clap:

I want to thank everyone who offered suggestions to help me. Take care and have a good forum, I’m moving over to Plextor… :wink:

LOL, a scam. Yeah… if thousands of happy customers are a scam then they are really kicking ass. :rolleyes:
Don’t let the door hit you on your way out…

-Evan-

No need to get snippy, Evan. You’d think I insulted your boyfriend or something. I happen to be an UN-SATISFIED Lite-On customer. Geez, it’s just a freaking piece of machinery :rolleyes: get a life! Nice comment about the door too. Grow up.
