Can you tell us what status of the DVD drive is in Windows Control Panel - Device manager.

Access it as follows:


  1. Click on the Start button and then Control Panel.
  2. Click on the System and Maintenance link.
    Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply double-click on the Administrative Tools icon and proceed to Step 4.
  3. In the System and Maintenance window, click on the Administrative Tools link near the bottom of the window.
  4. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on the Computer Management icon.
  5. When the Computer Management utility opens, click on Device Manager on the left side of the window, located toward the bottom of the list under the System Tools heading.
    Device Manager should now appear on the right side of the Computer Management window.
Under DVD/CD-Rom Drives is the Lite ON listed and showing no errors?

Also are you using Daemon Tools software. Try disabling/uninstalling Daemon Tools?
