Lvw 5045



Hi, My liteon 5045 has had troubles reading discs and wouldn’t copy from hard drive to dvd.
i used the firmware 197 and it read blank dvd’s which it didn’t in the past , recorded fine but then stopped finalizing at 24%.
Then I tried firmware 204 and that read the discs and recorded to 99% then stopped.
I seem to be wasting lots of good blank dvd’s here. :confused:
Any ideas.
Thanks for your help in advance.


Sounds like the DVD drive is going bad. You need to try cleaning it or replace it. There is alot of information here to show you how and what drives work the best. Good Luck and please report back how you make out.


Thanks for that, I was hoping it wouldn’t come to replacing the drive,oh well…
