Change my gx620 motherboard with ide connector for dvd rom to a 745 motherboard which has sata connection for dvd rom so i purchased a sata dvd rom and sata cable plugged everything in but the dvd rom wont...


With sata there are two cables, just like ide. One is the power and the other is for data. The data cable goes from the device to the motherboard. The power comes from the power supply. If your power supply does not have a sata connection you can purchase an adapter that will turn an available 4pin Molex into a sata connection.

If the CD drives are parallel type (with a wide data cable connecting them to the motherboard), one must be set as the master and the other as the slave device. This is done with jumpers found near the cable connector. This is what just about every drive looks like from the back:

The jumpers you're looking for are number 3. The drive connected to the end of the data cable should be set as the master (MA position). The slave drive (SL position) connects to the plug near the middle of the cable.

Some systems use a cable that requires setting the drives for cable select (CS). Check the Sony drive you removed and the one still in the system. If they are set for CS, set the new drive that way as well. Then they should be correctly identified and accessible.

Home built PC won't recognize a CD in the DVD players.


Make sure that your DVD drive detected and on the list in Device Manager as LG GH22NP20. If it already on the list, but still have the same problem, ask to the store where you bought that device for changing with the other one.

LG GH22LS40 will not work


You will need to check few things to get it working.

1) See that you have attached your DVD cable on the proper port of your motherboard.

2) See that the required jumper is fixed in proper place of your DVD writer.

3) Power cable of your DVD writer.

All the Best

Compurt is not recognizing a new LG 22x Internal DVD rec


Change the Master/Slave/CableSelect(CS) jumper on the back of the drive (between the power connector and IDE cable)

STEP 1:
Check that the IDE cable red stripe goes to pin 1 (closest to power plug) flip cable if needed.

STEP 2:
Move Jumper to SLAVE position. reboot. check for drive in os. if it's not there;

STEP 3:
Move Jumper to MASTER position. reboot.

If it's still not working replace your IDE cable and try again

Problem with installation of external dvd drive


I am also trying to get one of these drives working.  One "quirk" about this drive is that it actually uses two USB ports and a rechargeable battery when it is not connected to the AC adapter.  Why?  Because it draws a lot of current - each USB port on a laptop can supply a limited amount of current.  Using two USB ports allows the drive to draw the amount of current it needs.  So I would suggest using two USB cables.  Weird huh?
You might be able to get away with using just one USB cable if you have the AC adapter connected.

Replacement DVD-Rom has video but no audio


You should be able to get sound thru the IDE cable (this is the same type of cable also referred to as a ribbon cable, your hard drive connects in the same way) that is connecting your drive to the motherboard. turn the pc off and unplug power and reseat this cable on both ends be careful as the pins are fragile and will break

if this doesn't fix your problem let me know and we will try anotherr solution

LG GSA H55L DVD READ PROBLEM


It is possible there is a bottle neck in your system stopping it from allowing the dvd to play.

The DVD drive is only one part of it. There is the cable to the motherboard, CPU load, memory load, Video card being used etc.

If the drive is connected to another DVD/CD drive on the same cable, try unplugging it first and see if it improves. Also if it is running on the same cable as a hard drive, your main hard drive in particular, then try to get it onto it's own cable.

Check the software running it is not in software mode using it's particular config section within the program as well. If your video card supports hardware mode for video playback, then that will reduce system power being used by the CPU and the memory systems.
