Question about CD & DVD Burners

1 Answer

LG DVD Writer

Replaced a Sony CD ROM with a LG GH22LP20 Internal Super Multi DVD Rewriter (supports all DVD and CD formats) on my PC. Using nero 7 express the drive can read and write CDs and can read DVDs (although a little slow), but does not write to a CD. Download of some free device scanning software shows that device driver for the drive is OK.

Any advice.

    Thanks will try. However, noticed a mistake in my problem posting. It does not write to DVD but can write to a CD. Apologies. Will the solution change.



    Anything to change in Registry entries?



    Thanks

    Uninstall and Re-install of Nero 7 Express did not solve the problem. Any other suggestion.

    Thanks,

My dvd not writing but read


There can be several reasons for that. Try to use Nero software if you are using LG SUITE. Also the DVD write speed and format has to match that of your writer. Ate you copying another DVD or writing data or edited media such as movie video or music files? Check compliance format.

LG GH22NS70 Super multi DVD Rewriter just used


Power cable attached, interface cable attached, (Dta cable), and the small audio cable attached, plus computer on, and Windows loaded.

Windows XP:
1) Click on Start

2) Right-click on My Computer

3) Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list

4) Left-click on the Hardware tab

5) Left-click on Device Manager

6) When Device Manager loads, left-click on the + sign to the left of - DVD/CD-ROM drives

7) Right-click on the name of the optical drive.

8) Left-click on Uninstall

A Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up,
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device"
It's okay. Click on OK.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off normally. (Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off)

Wait 1 minute. Turn the computer back on.
You should get a pop-up out of the system tray, "Found new hardware", and perhaps another one will follow, "Found XXXX DVD drive"

No? Doesn't work?
Try using another 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.

(The IDE harddrive shown, is just an example of a device that uses a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable. Mistakenly referred to as a 'Molex' power cable)

Make sure the interface cable (Data cable) is plugged in tightly.

LG GH22 dvd writer - not reading


I had the same problem with the GH22 Internal drive on vista. Assuming this is the only cd drive you have, just go to the device manager and remove/uninstall anything under "DVD/CD Rom Drives" then restart. It should get picked up and recognized properly. It took a couple of restarts to work. For refrence, I only have the LG GH22NP20 installed, what appears in device manager are 2 items... (1)HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22NP20 SCSI CdRom Device... (2) KU1051Q EAG855E SCSI CdRom Device... Incase you have multiple cd drives, this should help tell em appart. Enjoy. IDK399

LG Super Multi will not detect DVDs in the drive


Sounds like you may have a firmware issue. I had something similar on a Sony external dvd writer. If you go here: http://uk.lge.com/ click on Download Software in the bottom left, then DVD-ROM(Writer) near the middle, scroll down a bit (maybe also be on the following pages) It's listed as: New firmware (ver. SE02) for only GSA-E40L(External 18X Super multi DVD Writer) Run the firmware updater and you should be good to go
