    Potential Slimtype BD E DS4E1S Driver Fix


    Okay folks, I think I may have a solution for people who are having problems with their Slimtype BD E DS4E1S drives. I just ran into this issue myself today & I've been going crazy trying to find the cause. After a lot of googling, I found out the Slimtype BD E DS4E1S driver is actually made by Lite-On. It appears the drives may just need a firmware flash update. The Lite-On site appeared to be doing some sort of maintenance but, Lite-On DS-4E1S Firmware Downloads - Firmware HQ has the driver. Just download, extract & install the .exe file. I think the DOS file has the same result but, just a different method My BD drive is now properly reading discs. Give it a try folks.


    P.S. in case you guys find the link is dead, inbox me & I'll try to get it to you.

    I just had the same problem! did not get into the whole flashing thing. Just cleaned the lens with cotton swab and some rubbing alcohol and it worked like a charm. Just in case flashing doesn't work, try cleaning the lens!

    I've realized that my unit is defected altogether. Sadly I've yet to have it replaced. This is not my year. But, yeah a lens cleaning may suffice. This particular unit floods the forums with complaints. So, keep in mind that a replacement device may be necessary. Your manufacturer is obligated to a one year warranty so, you may get a replacement for free. You may have to pay for shipping charges however. Good luck folks.

    Casey,

    I kept getting an error code 19 when checking the driver under device manager and it will not update as Microsoft finds it to be the latest version. So I deleted the dam thing and now need to re install the driver. The links you provided no longer work. Can you contact me and send the files?

    There is no such thing as a manufacturer's driver for optical drives.

    Asking for Advice from Master Chief


    Thanks for the information. Can you suggest what I have to do to get the driver back. I have a Windows 7 Pro (32-bit) system right next to the Windows 7 Pro (64 bit) system on which the driver was deleted. The file is cdrom.sys. Can I just copy the driver from one system to the other and expect it to work? Is the system smart enough to accept the file as installed?

    Yes, you can copy cdrom.sys from C:\Windows\System32\drivers from one machine and put it in the same folder on the problem machine. BUT - if doing for 64 bit machine to fix - you must get the file from another 64 bit machine.

    This will only work if you didn't delete the .inf file and other settings for it.

    If you did that, then you might try to fix it by running this command from an elevated command prompt:

    sfc /scannow

    Reboot. Then do what the link says in my previous post.

    Well as it seems, the physical unit itself is the culprit. If you aren't under manufacturer's warranty anymore, the only solution is to replace the ODD altogether. Forums are pooling with complaints of that drive & still no recall.
