I've got aspire z5801 .looking for a manual and softwhere to work the bluray.it works on normal DVDs but not bluray do I need software


Did the Blu-Ray drive come with a manual or drivers?
Normally, you need software (Nero, etc.) to burn DVDs. What are you using to access DVD drive successfully? What error message(s) are you getting?
Thanks,
Make a great day!

My lg ggc-h20l works perfectly in every wat except it will not write dvds


Theres probably something wrong with the driver, you can try and uninstall the driver and reinstall. If you cant find where to uninstall, just reinstall.

It basically means that a service that is required is not responding.

LG super multi drive identified as CDROM by Windows XP


First, thank you for the excellent description. I wish more FixYa clients would provide complete information like that.

Unless you are having problems, I wouldn't worry about the product designation in XP since it's LG drive that is identifying it as such during XP's device discovery routine. Your new LG drive can handle all of the different DVD rewritable formats - i.e. DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, and DVD-RW - so it appears that it is just using the first as its designator.

In my laptop, my LG DVD writer is designated as follows in Device Manager:

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T10N ATA Device


LG describes it as a "Slim DVD Super-Multi Drive". I've had no problems with it, and it has worked flawlessly to burn CDs and DVDs.

My GGW-H20L will not play blu-ray, but will play reg dvds


You need a Blu-Ray compatible player in addition to a Blu-Ray drive. PowerDVD8 has Blu-Ray support

Can't get sata connection to work on new blu-ray rom


Oilers5, let's check a few basics first. Double check your dvd's data & power connections first. Everything good? Next, you need to get into your bios. Your blu-ray is connected to the SATA controller on the motherboard. Though I do not doupt the device manager your bios must see the device before windows will. At the main menue in your bios the DVD player should be listed (depending on model # of board) at the main menue. Than make sure the SATA controller is enabled, you'll find this in advanced menue. This is where you'll need your manual. If the dvd is the only SATA connected to the system you should have the option to use the SATA & not the RAID. If you have SATA hard drives connected & your dvd ends up on the RAID end you still should have the option to set the RAID to IDE. This way you will not need to run the RAID software. Once you get the bios adjusted windows should see the blu-ray as a SATA dvd player.
Oilers5 if what I have listed has not helped or fixed your problem could you post back with your model no# of the motherboard. Mfg's name ex; (dell, HP...). Than I can download your manual & check what settings need to be adjusted. Is this the only SATA device your trying to get to run? Is your current hard drive a SATA or IDE? How many?
Thanks Oilers5. I look forward to your next post.

DVD problem


Have you tried several DVDs? Maybe it doesn't read some types of DVDs.
