    I have the same problem. VCD's works on this drive. DVD's also used to work earlier but now it does not recognize the DVD. If we explore the DVD, It shows nothing in it.



    Any solution?

    it seems to have been caused by Nero corrupting the drivers. The firmware update is not working (it's an exe, and it cannot recognize my drive without the drivers), and I'm still searching for a driver

Hello,
It would appear that the problem you are experiencing could be due to 1 of the 2 following items;

1. Re-install the software driver & software that came with the drive.

2. Set the region /Country that the drive will be working in or the language that you understand (USA=Region 1). It should be noted here that this option has a limitation of being changed up to 5 times but once it hits the fifth time the drive will be permanently set to that region and can not be changed anymore for the rest of the drives lifetime!!! The drive will usually work fine once it has been set (the default from the factory is ZERO (NOT SET)) and that may work fine for a while but it should be set to a region and it will understand all previously burnt /movie dvds that have this option set in the data already.

Good Luck!

HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N cannot detect dvd disc


I have same DVD writer and I am facing the same problem. During R&D for such failure on google I came to know there are two different Laser Diodes for CD and DVD. CD read write is working for me. I think DVD r-w laser has some problems. I am currently looking for options to get the new laser diode. As soon I replace the diode and see my DVD writer working. I will upload the video to replace the diode for you all.

My lg GSA-H55N dvd writer is not playing Cds but plays Dvds fine


your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution
thankyou
