You can’t post answers that contain an email address. Note you will not be able to flash the stock liteon firmware, they gotta change it a bit. You may need to update them if they have a new update. The odd thing is it is only this set of DVDs. I have done the following to try and fix this problem that I have found on other forums. I ended up getting a cheap no brand dvd reader only drive to plug in with USB that worked flawlessly with every dvd. No matched drive detected!

ATAPI DVD W DH16W1P Firmware LP21 download

Should be easier than replacing the drive. How satisfied are you with this reply? How do I fix it? I tried all kind of ides floating around the web. In other dg16w1p, is the likely problem that there is some kind of copy protection or encryption that Hollywood slapped onto Disk 1 to protect their precious IP that is hosing me here?

I keep dgd spare in place for just this sort of thing.

If this basically the Hollywood version of StarForce, is there any way to tell? Sorry dh16ww1p my english. Then work your way through these – remember the drive could be bad, could have a loose cable or slight corrosion on the contacts usually for a laptop and other issues. This is not without some very minor risks, but it looks like this guy was in the same process with your same Lite On DVDRW albeit for different reasons.

When I try to run the SL08 firmware upgrade this is the exact error message I get: The problem is my drive wont detect it. There was an error in the content. Alright I managed to find and download the Lite-on firmware upgrade. There are some registry entries that the troubleshooter does not fix and those “might” be the cause.


When I try to click Update Driver, it comes dh16ww1p saying that I have up to date already. What should I do? Tech Support Guy is completely free — paid for by advertisers and donations.

Do you already have an account? The sound is fine from other sources and I have already tried to uninstall and reinstall the drive.
