Have you tried a lens-cleaning disk? Data on DVDs is much more closely packed and so the weaker signal prehaps more likely to be lost to a dusty lens.

My lg gsa 6sa-2164d cannot read dvd

The best solution is try to clean laser, but if you have again same trouble, you can try update firmware, or change laser. But sometime is bad chip on board.
It is better buy another, than change laser or chip on board.
I think that you dvd read cd, but can read dvd, and also can write cd.

The writer is not reading

Hi, you can try a cleaning CD as writers are suseptable to dust; if this does'nt work it is probably a faulty laser and you will need to replace the writer.

The laser reader may need cleaning.
Radio Shack has a DVD laser cleaner ($13).\
It is an audio CD that has a row of brushes.
No chemicals involved.
