Need help with Slimtype DVDRW drive!



Hello all,

I have an internal DVDRW drive. Model: Slimtype DVDRW SOSW-852S

Whenever I try to insert any blank media or burnt media, the drive just makes noises and doesn’t read the diisc I inserted. Anything else works fine, but I hate the fact that I have a DVD burner I can’t use! :slight_smile:

I’ve searched all over for drivers but couldn’t find any. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks. :bow:


Is this the one?
You don’t need drivers, you just need to use a software program like Nero to utilize it’s burning capabilities.


I have Easy CD/DVD Creator 6 installed, so I don’t know if software is the problem. Any other suggestions?

I’ll try Nero, but I don’t know that it will work.


update firmware if possible


Not possible. Lite-on does not provide updated firmware for this drive because it’s an OEM unit. It does have a history of premature laser failure.
