    hi i have a Liteon DVD-RW SOHW-1693S since 6 months...
    it can write DVDs, CDs... but cannot read em.
    it does not show any title in windows explorer either...
    and when i double click on the icon... i get a blank disc... but i CAN see the data through ISObuster...
    now i thaught it to be a dusty lens, but when i put a lens cleaner it doesnt recognize the disc! How am i suppose to fix this?
    Please Help!
    I also have a crooked samsung combo drive (tray problems) and even that doesnt show CD titles...
    But it surely did accept the lens cleaner. and started giving me files again!

    Check wheather the CDs are working correctly in some other comp......
    Send the drives to the service center and get it serviced......mostly when it come back it will be good as new......

    Don't buy these SamSung products except their Monitor. You could have bought a
    Sony or BenQ DVD Writer. Since your drive is having problems, get it serviced.
