Hi,

laser head is either dirty or faulty.
1:) try cleaning the lasers read-head ( glass-eye )
2:) ensure the CD/DVDs device drivers are correctly Installed.

You could try this tool for resetting your DVD-Rom. If this does not work then it could be you need a new Optical burner.

Dvd-rw is not recognizing cd


Place another CD in the tray one that works you know works if it recognizes it possibly it is the CD that you are trying to insert is bad or broken. So try any other one a movie disc that works if it picks it up that would be my first thought if it does not then you may need a new CD-RW burner for the lap top they are not that expensive. This does happen I have changed a few of them out myself. John

Windows cant complete format on dvd-rw drive. it reads disks okay but doesnt want to format rw disks that used to work.


you canot format a used disc, because its only good for a one time use unless youre using a disc rw again and again. There you can do that.

DVD-RW not working


Hi, in my experiance 99 times out of 100, it's the CD/DVD gone kaput! sorry... they seem to be rather delicate devices and fail for often NO apperant reason. I suggest ya take it to a reputable "PC Guy" Get a FIRM QUOTE, and replace the unit. If ya tech savy then buy a new unit and replace it, it is REAL simple to do so ya self, usually the sorta "Plug In" I bet that solves ya problem.. :)

LG LS50 DVD/CD-RW DRIVE won't recognize blank dvd-r


Yes does not read DVD-R because if your LS50 Labeled like this (DVD/CD-RW) means that can read only all DVD Disc and cannot write on DVD blank only CD blank.


You can burn only on the blank CD-RW or any blank CD.
