Question about LG GMA-4082N DVD±RW Burner

1 Answer

DVD Writers can read but can not write

I have a new Intel dual core tower with 2 GB Ram and 200 GB HDD.
It came with a Samsung DVD Writer connected through SATA. I connected my old LG DVD Writer thru IDE. I have another old SATA HDD Aalso connected. I can read on both DVD drives but I can not write. Under NERO, it is not showing the drives as available. When I right click on either DVD drive and try to "send to", the DVD Drives don't show on the list. Under MY COmputer, I can see both drives. Under device properties, both drives are working properly. I have reinstalled drivers for the drives. I have deleted the drives from the device property and have it redeiscovered by WIndows. I have reset the cables. But nothing seems to help. I am using Windows XP Pro.

SOURCE: Computer Does Not Recognize Device

Dude, I threw my HP DVD writer out the 2nd story window after HP customer service in India tried to charge me for help, bought a different LG DVD writer, had the same problem. I have been on the computer for about 24 hours in the last week trying to fix this problem...

I researched every computer assistance blog on the net
I edited my registry about a billion times
I took out my usb from the device manager
I downloaded new drivers
I rebooted at least 15 times
I went into disk management
I went into services
I contemplated throwing the computer out the window and all the time I have wasted in my life troubleshooting computer problems.
I contemplated a world without computers.....
I even called tech support for LG (not located in India thank god).

And then I came across this page and the unplugging and plugging worked. Doh!

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: dvd writer for dell gx270 mini tower

If you can think and look logically, you will be able to replace your current drive with a standard notebook drive, mostly called slimline.
open the case by pressing the two knobs at the side and lift it upwards. The unit clicks out easily, the removal of the flat cable and power connector needs a bit of patience, and you have to unscrew the drive from the bracket after that. I think you can get a drive for some $50,-5015338.jpg

At the back of the unit you will see a graphics card output. If you only have one then you will need to buy a second one to utilise a second monitor. You will need 2 DVI outputs to run this kind of setup.

I want to buy a laptop. Please suggest me which processor is best? ie. Intel pentium processor or intel pentium dual core processor? Will intel pentium dual core processor overheat easily?

First you need to be clear that dual core is the family of Pentium series. so there is no processor called Pentium.............. now regarding your question i would suggest you do not go for dual core... Take core 2 duo or I3 /I5/I7 series of processor..............
I am giving you a configuration in a good budget

Rs 50,800/-
Intel 3 GHZ Core2 Duo Processor,3 GB DDR2/DDR3 RAM, and a 250/320/500 GB HDD.
