Why my LiteOn RW can detect DVD

Hi,everyone .
i hav a liteon model SOHW1693S DVD RW recently just break down :sad:
(But still under warranty :clap:)
The RW can’t detect any multimedia disc after i put in.i also explore it through the Drive and it show nothing.
i was sure that it’s the RW that having problem after i connect another DVD Rom drive and it just play find.
So i go for the claim at the shop,after 1 month waitting for the part.they phone me saying that they hav out of stock for that model and willing to replace me with another model DH-18A3P07C.
But after i receive the same problem repeat,so is it My PC problem or the RW.
If the RW problem what is the component inside that broken :confused:

The Model that they replace to me is better and latest than my previous one ?

Anyone can help me ?

the 18A3P is better then your old writer, keep it :wink:

have you tried another IDE cable or to boot from another disc? if it boots then there’s a problem with windows.

when was the last time you formatted your hard disk to reinstall windows?
take your problem for doing something good to your pc and set up a fresh windows and your drive will work again. :bigsmile:

Are you trying to read a blank disk?
