New Version Of Windows? No Problem!

 

Upgrade smoothly by finding the correct drivers for your cd, dvd & blueray for any version of windows. For the first time, users can upgrade with confidence knowing that their computer will run smoothly thanks to the latest drivers and updates required for a perfect upgrade.

 

Why Updating Drivers Is Important


Usually the only reason we look to install or update cd, dvd & blueray drivers is because something is malfunctioning. This is not the only reason you should keep your drivers up to date however. LiteOn is constantly tuning and improving performance of their cd, dvd & bluerays and the only way to make use of this is by having the latest drivers. Going online and checking for new drivers all the time can be frustrating and is not an effective use of your time, and a simple tool like the driver installer above can keep all of your hardware running on the optimal drivers with top performance.

Sometimes when new hardware is installed, although it works correctly, other hardware which interacts with it may not be, because the other hardware actually needs its own drivers updated. This kind of co-dependency is another common problem and a reason why it's a great idea to have a tool that is constantly monitoring the state of all of your drivers and updating appropriately so you can upgrade and add or remove components in your computer while continuing to run without a hitch.

When your cd, dvd & blueray is relatively new, it may be possible to download individual drivers directly from LiteOn without incurring additional charges. If you are having problems locating the correct drivers for your cd, dvd & blueray, or are unsure of the exact model, we suggest you run a system scan first. It's very important you know the exact model of your LiteOn cd, dvd & blueray you would like to update to ensure that it will function properly and to prevent possible damage to your system. Download an installer that will automatically scan and identify your LiteOn cd, dvd & blueray to make sure you are installing the correct update and will also locate and download any additional driver and bios updates your pc may need.
