Default upgrade dvd roms

Hello. I have a computer and wants to upgrade. Here are my specs right now:

Windows: Microsoft windows xp home edition version 2002 service pack 3.
Processor: Intel core 2 Duo Cpu E8400 @300 GHZ
3.00 Ghz
3.00 GB of RAM
Video card: Nvidia Geforce 8800 Gts 512 MB
DVD-Rom: Lite-on DVD rw LH- 20A15.
Motherboard: Asus P5k-e

The dvd rom I have right now is a dvd burner. When I tried to play crysis the burner doesn't like the game. So I was wondering if I can change it back to my old dvd rom. I think this one can run crysis, but I'm not sure about this dvd rom. Can someone please check for me? Here are the model number and the s/n number:

S/N: 229213002509
Model: LTD-163D.

Thanks a million. Sorry guys I'm new here.

I would try a firmware update for your current drive first.

Lite-on doesn't have a LH-20A15, but they do have a LH-20A1S. Double check your model number before downloading and installing the firmware update. Here's the download link: Link

The file should be an EXE. Download it, make sure your DVD burner is empty, and then run the file. Once it has updated, try Crysis again.


Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / ASUS GeForce GTX 960 GTX960-DC2OC-2GD5
AMD Ryzen 5 1600 x6 core / MSI B350 Gaming Plus
Samsung 970 EVO 250GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue SSD 250GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB
2x4GB DDR4 2400 / Win10 Pro x64
