Probs Regarding - Lite-On DVDRW SOHW-1653S

Hiya all. I am new 2 this forum but with a reason, I have a Lite-On DVDRW SOHW-1653S but I cannot view DVD’s or burn any DVD’s no more. I can burn data & audio CD’s but thats about it really. I have even updated the Firmware & reformatted my PC & I email Lite-On Corporation on there official Website which they have not replied 2 my email.

When I put a DVD into my Lite-On DVDRW, the writer flashes twice 3 times & thats about it. I hope you can help me.

Welcome to the forum.

Bads news probably. There are 2 separate lasers, one for CDs the other for DVDs. It’s not unknown for one to fail resulting in this situation.

You might try a cleaning disk but I think it’s probable that a replacement is now needed.

I think you should replace the drive I’ve the same model, but mine reads only DVD only. Now I’m having problem when burning on a DVD media.
