    Okay, I have traced my DVD playback problem to issues with my DVD-ROM... but when I go to update the drivers for it... I find that they're non-existant! I can't find a single mention of ANY of lite-on's DVD-ROM products ANYWHERE on thier MULTIPLE websites!!

    Am I missing something? Where in the world are the drivers, FAQs, product manuals...ANYTHING about thier DVD-ROM drives?! ANY support at ALL?! What's the deal??

    You don't need any specific drivers for the drive. Try upgrading the drivers for your IDE controller.

    Ok-- I had to get some third-party programmed firmware to get it to work properly... odd.

    And I don't think Lite-On "makes" anything. I have a drive from them, it's a toshiba (maybe OEM'd be them, but who knows). Bios recognizes it and says Toshiba.

    Lite-On makes drives for half of the companies out there at least CD-ROM/CDRW wise, not positive about DVD-ROMs.

    John, is it the 163D? If so there's a nice little mod out there to region free it if you're interested. (hope that was ok to post)
