After a year or so it stops reading discs, I clean it with dvd cleaning disc and it helps. But it still says INVALID DISC! I have 2 different models of the LITE ON and they are both doing the same thing. Have they developed the discs too fast or to much memory capacity to work with a 2 year old unit? 8x, 16x or what brand disc is going to work best. These units were supposed to use CDs and all brands, but it seems that after 2 years only certain DVD+RW work at all. The DVD-R used to work, but not anymore. Any ideas? From what I have read in complaint areas, updating the FIRMWARE doesn’t solve the problem but sometimes makes it worse.http://club.cdfreaks.com/images/smilies/6/confused.gif PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!

Symptoms are typical of DVD burner going bad. According to post #9 at http://club.cdfreaks.com/f102/lite-lvc-9016g-problem-231591/ the 9016 DVD burner can be replaced like the 5xxx model burners can.
