drive doesn't recognize any disk that is inserted. I have tried to locate a driver for this drive and found the one on liteonit.com, but that particular file doesn't work with my drive. I am at a lose here since my computer had been attacked and I had to completely wipe the HDD, then reinstall windows. I wish I had the original files that came with the drive.

Any help and/or suggestions will be appreciated.

Hello Spirit Wolf

Iam not a Staff member here at GTG , However i may be able to help you...

Iam on vista atm , but i work with xp( at home( i am like 300km's from home at the moment though lol ))

( commands vary and the layout is different , Hopefully we can work around that )

Drivers are essential in order for any device/hardware component to function corrently ( Allows for control / Communication ) without getting into the " Nitty Gritty" area's :)

Here is what i want you to try first

click Start button ( BOTTOM LEFT OF TOOLBAR ) then click "Control Panel" then locate the "DEVICE MANAGER"

SIMPLIFIED: Start > Control panel > Device manager ( Open the device manager up )

Look at dvd/cd-rom drives section ( is there a yellow Exclaimation mark ??? )

If there is... double click " dvd/cd-rom drives " or click the ( + ) symbol to expand...

Right click on the drive with exclaimation mark and select Update OR Update driver software ( we will see if windows can locate a driver for your device automatically ( If not we are going to have to manually locate the driver ))

If above recommendation does not succeed.... I will need more information on your drive Eg: Make , model and serial number etc

PS: You will need to have a Internet connection established in order for windows to be able to locate a driver

Iam assuming you do have a connection to the internet though , quote:" i have tried to locate a driver for this drive and found the one on liteonit.com "
