Hello, im new to this website.
I just bought a new dvd rw drive. Its a Liteon drive, idk what model. :/ 
My problem is that, when I insert either a cd OR dvd, into my drive, and i open my drive from my computer, some of the files are missing in the cd. this one time I opened a cd and only had ONE file... some blablabla.tmp file... if all of the files DO show up onto the cd... its corrupted :(  any ideas?
also. in my computer it shows as DVD-RAM
in device manager : (i took pics)

I would first start to see that you have the newest chipset drivers for your mb. if you dont the cd-rom might not read right.
the other issue could be a filter issue in windows.

when u burn something, always burn at a very slow speed. Try burning some files at a slow speed and see the results. Which burning software r u using. Try using another software. Also change ur sata cable and ur sata port.

In Windows XP , there r issues regarding DVD drive. Like ur case it also sometimes showed up as DVD-RAM instead of DVD-RW while i was using XP. Cant remember how i fixed that?

Install the drive to a different sata port. Windows should redetect the drive and load the appropriate drivers automatically.
