There are some players or burners for that matter that are choosy on the type of dvd's that they read. Which is why most of the time when you buy a new burner you go through a lot of dvds or cds and when you get to one that burns you the best discs you stick with it.

I hope this has answered your question sufficiently. If you have more questions please post a reply and i would be happy to assist. Thanks.

My PC is an IDE. the dvd/cd burner went bad. I baught this new LG burner today with an IDE to SATA adapter with the needed cables. I installed it all and it wont even come on, not working. So I am guessing...


It is not the dvd driver problem but more likely to have the adapter issue. The generic Microsoft cd/dvd dirver should be fine, I never have to install and driver for the replacement DVD/CD drive on any of my repair works.
Did you try this setup with another PC?

Dimension4700 desktop: replace read-only dvd dr. with dvd burner?


I've had a lot of luck with www.newegg.com.
Do some searching, see what fits in your price range, and read the reviews. www.tigerdirect.com is also very good. Check their return policies for restocking fees, in the event that you're not happy with your purchase.

Here are the instructions for removing and replacing your particular optical drive:

Make sure you buy an IDE drive, not SATA.

Good luck! Hope this helps! If so, please leave a rating!

Just bought a new DVD burner, its a LG Super Multi DVD ReWriter 22x (Gh22LS40) I also had to buy a sata to IDE converter for my motherboard that has only IDE connectors on it. I can not get Windows 7 to...


ok here's what you need to do.....


first check your dvd burner if its is detected properly on your cmos. If it is located properly try to re install windows 7 again i've encountered this problem before and i just reinstalled windows 7 and it worked like charm.

If the dvd burner is not detected on cmos try to check the jumper settings for both hard disk and dvd burner one orf the other should not be on the same setting ex. if your disk drive is on master you should set the dvd on slave and vice versa. then redo the first step. hope this helps

DVD Burner popping up as ''CD Player'' Wonder if any of you have come across this issue before (and it is veryserious, i have two new games to play!!!). Have an LG DVD Burner, gotSoulstorm for Christmas...


I came across this a few yars back, but i cant for the life of me think how i solved it, i think you have to right click on the drive in my compuer, click properties, and on the recording tab make sure the first checkbox is checked.

I also had this problem on an LG drive.

My Lg DVD-RW stopped reading but it writes DVD's


I have had this problem... Once, I was able to fix it by using the latest firmware update for the DVD burner. Other than that, you just need to replace the drive (less than $30 online)

What do you mean by not reading the disk?

When inserting a disk to the DVD drive, it runs an autorun program if one exists on the disk. By nature autorun will not run again if the disk stays in the drive. If you want to run the content of the disk, you have to execute autorun.exe from Windows Explorer. Let me know if that doesn't answer your question
