I have a issues with LITEON DVD-ROM LTD163 ATA DEVICE and i bought call of duty 4 modern warefare and I installed it and now it won't let me play single version at all since it don't show up in...


well if another Disc works (try a movie or something) it means that the disc itself is damaged. Now I'm betting that the other disc dont work eighter, This is because the rom has reached its life span. Replacing the rom is the solution to your problem.

Dvd burner not detected


Sorry, but that model is not a DVD writer. It can only write and rewrite CD's. It can only read DVD's.

Here is a page with specs:

Note under DVD>Write DVD it says N/A. (Not applicable.)

I have my dell inspiron 1501 i normally used my drive e to burn music and files but recently it cant read cd's anymore please help me i have lots of things to do:-) it says there that " please insert cd on...


I had the same issue and finally - after coming across your question via google- got frustrated enough to start clicking thingsand hoping for the best. Lo! After six months of my Inspirion sticking a loaded disc drive at me like a two year old would their tongue, I have solved the problem somehow.

I don't know what the hell I'm doing with computers, never taken a class; but like any tool or living thing, sometimes things just want attention and will act up to get it. Here's how I convinced it to work:

By disabling the DVD-ROM device, resetting the system, and re-enabling said device, I successfully solved the problem. In case you aren't 100% sure how to go about that, I have supplied a step-by-step guide which I wrote as if it were for my father - a proud caveman.

1.) From your Computer folder, right click drive E: and select properties.

2.) Enter the 'Hardware' tab, highlight the Sony CDRWDVD device (I'm assuming we have the same software), or whatever appears to be your actual DVDROM reader.

3.) Hit the 'Properties' button near the bottom of the window, enter the 'Driver' tab on the next pop-up.

4.) Find your 'Disable' button and push it with no fear in your heart.

5.) Close out of both pop-ups, and Vista will present you with the option to Restart your laptop.

6.) Say yes, and get something to drink while you wait.

7.) Enjoy your drink.

8.) Now that the system has restarted, return to your Computer folder. You will notice that Drive E: is absent.

9.) Trust me.

10.) Right-click anywhere on the folder besides on an icon and select properties. This will take you to Control Panel > System & Maintenance > System

11.) So long as you're with me still, you will see a list of options on the right side of the window. Select 'Device Manager.'

12.) Find the DVD/CD-ROM Devices icon, click the plus sign to expand. Find the device which you previously disabled (again, mine is SONY CDRWDVD CRX880A ATA DEVICE), right click, and select 'Enable'.

13.) Is an unlucky number to finish on.

14.) You're back in business!

As with anything in computers, there are thousand ways to do the same thing, so I have merely opted to write this list in precisely the order I did things. If it doesn't work, feel free to contact me @ DigitalGrampa@Gmail.com with any sort of abuse.

Optiarc cd-rw crx880a ata device: This device cannot start. (Code 10)


Did you try to click "Troubleshoot" on the page that reported "cannot start" ?


Did you try to click on the device, and choose "uninstall" ?
Then, rebooting Windows should cause Windows to "find new hardware", and properly configure the DVD/CD drive.
