Liteon LH20A1S movied dvd read error

Hello!

I bought a Liteon LH20A1S in November 2007 and have problems playing movie dvds on the drive. During movies the drive starts clicking and then the whole stalls. I tried the dvds on my Liteon external DVDRW drive and it plays back perfectly. Does anyone have any ideas I can try to fix the problem? Is it a SATA connection problem because my USB external DVDRW drive works fine?

Thanks a lot in advance!

What exact “movies”?
Pressed or burned ones?

Thanks for the reply! They’re pressed ones. I have downloaded the updated SATA driver for my motherboard and will re-install that and hopefully this will solve the problem. Thanks to rakter for the advice.

Hello!

I’ve performed a TRT scan using Nero on the drive using the pressed movie DVD. The erratic lines appear during the “clkicking” noise phase of reading. I’ve updated my SATA drivers and my system BIOS before the scan. I was thinking that the error could be caused by Slysoft AnyDVD which I use to de-regionalise my DVDRW drive. Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

Thank you very much for all your help!

p.s. the pressed dvd works fine on my external DVDRW drive

If the dataside of the disc is clean, then it would get it replaced…
