Were the jumpers on the drive set to Master or Cable Select?, depending on the age of the e-mac the LG GE20 needs to be set to Master.

Are you using the same blank cd / dvds are before for burning?

You might want to check LG's support page to make sure you're using the latest drive firmware version.

Here's a link to their page.


There are two GE20 models so make sure you choose the one you own.

Let me know what happens after the above.

DVD drive will recognize data discs but will not recognize DVDs. I.e. when you place a DVD in the drive and open windows explorer you are told that there is no DVD in the drive. However it will...


try running the fix-tool provided by Microsoft on this web page

http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cd_dvd_drive_problems

If that fails then my suspicion is that either
1) the drive has failed
or more likely
2) because you don't have any DVD burning software, windows can't understand the blank DVD-RW disk. This basic packet-burning software installed with XP CANNOT write to DVD disks.

However there is a bit more to it than that - the Microsoft CD burning software (which is a cut down Roxio product) cannot co-exist with any other packet burning software (e.g. DLA, In-CD or simuilar) so if one of those is installed you have to DISABLE the MS CD burning capability on the drive settings tab. Even worse, Internet Explorer 8 is not compatible with DLA - which is included in quite a few CD/DVD suites including many of the later Roxio versions

My advice would be
1) un-install any CD or DVD burning software on the machine
2) disable the MS CD burning
3) run that Microsoft patch
4) Install some DVD burning software but DON'T install the packet writing software part of it

Note that after installing that patch you may also have to reinstall any DVD playing software

Just got an lg ge20 not working on mac


I wish I could tell you that your Mac is compatible with the LG GE20 20X DVD Burner but unfortunately it is not.

Here are the system requirements for this burner
LG GE20 20X DVD Burner Technical Specifications

The CD included is not the only item that is not compatible with the Mac, it is also the DVD burner itself. It is only windows compatible I'm afraid.

However, I do know that the Apple.com online store, has a comparable DVD+RW burner, the
LaCie 22x d2 DVD+RW with LightScribe
which will work with your iMac.

This is a genuine incompatibility issue.

If you had an Intel iMac, there actually is a workaround process where virtual machine software, like VMWare Fusion or Parallels, could be installed, with a version of Windows XP, Vista, or 7, display as a 2nd terminal within a Mac OS X desktop.

What's makes this effective, is that the LG GE20 could work with a windows virtual machine and because software like VMWare for example, can share devices, including optical CD/DVD drives, the Mac could share that drive with the windows virtual machine.

But since you do not have an Intel iMac, unless I am reading the description of your Mac computer(Apple iMAC Mac Notebook) incorrectly, the LaCie burner information, I provided above, would be the best option for your model of iMac.

Again, if I have described your model of Mac incorrectly let me know and I will be glad to assist further.

Regards,

-Mactechtrainer

I've just bought one of these for a Mac G4 running


You need to locate a piece of software called Patchburn - but I think that might be difficult now.
This particular vintage mac only worked with the drive that was in it. in order to use a different drive you had to patch the system so that the new drive would be recognised as a burner - that said, it should just work as a player/CD-ROM.
The later Macs didn't have this problem and you could stick a drive in and it would be recognised straight away as a burner. I recently put a LG drive (with lightscribe) into a G5 mac and it worked straight away as a burner/player but I did have to install the lightscribe software.
