normally you do not need drivers for ATA drives because windows would pick them up right away. it is possible the there is something wrong with the connections. the best thing to do is to go into the BIOS and see if you can see any drivers named liteon . when you first start the computer it should tell you what key to press to enter the BIOS
Please help, lost both of my Lite-ons at once. The other is a SOHD-167T ATA Device. They were working fine on my Windows 7 Desktop, Gateway.
The DVDs are both visible in the bios, no liteon drive mentioned in the bios. I downloaded "Driver Detective". It indicated I had the correct drivers for the Lite-on DVDs. I still don't know wht to do. When the start-up screen is running it shows both DVDs are active. It has to be a Windows problem is all Ican figure, though the Microsoft Updates and Trouble-shooting forums do not address the problem. To Windows 7, my DVDs do not exist anymore. Any more suggestions PLEASE?
