My LG Super Multi DVD Burner (GH22NS40) is not working properly anymore. It used to read everything I put in (DVD, game CD, Music CD) but now it fails to read game CDs pretty much all the time. I was...


Hi Makman,

Please follow the below steps,

  1. Make sure there is no loose connection in the cable of the DVD RAM drive , try changing the slot if that is possible.
  2. Secondly , make sure you have a lens cleaner so that you can clean the lens and then check if things work fine.
  3. If the problem persists , the better option would be to get it checked via a external drive connector and see if it works fine or check it at your friend's PC and see the results,
  4. If then the problem persists, then it's surely an indication that the drive will die soon and will not be able to read anything or even probably be detected.

Hope this helps..:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

I have a NEC Lavie L LL550/3 that doesn't read


The CD and DVD reading portions of the drive use different sensors, so it's possible it would stop reading DVDs but still continue to read basic (audio) CDs.

The question is, will the same, working audio CD work while booted up fully?

If it does not, it may be a matter of a driver problem; unfortunately drivers cannot be found online for this model. Check this thread and make a post or comment to try to find someone who may have the drivers you need.

This drive reads a dvd but not cds. do you have


may be it's only a DVD ROM drive not a combo,
you will need a combo to read both DVD and CD
if it was reading CDs earlier then the CDs might have scratch in them, try with new CD.
did u make changes to the cables inside, if you did check if the cabels are connected properly to the drive

When I Put Dvd's In My Cd Rom Drive To Play On My Laptop, It Doesn't Do Anything And Doesn't Come Up Saying There's Anything In There But It Does Make The Loading Noises Then Just Stops! Can Anyone Suggest...


CD Drives read only
COMPACT.DISKS.
DVD/CD Combo drives are meant to have support for DVDs and CDs
Of course it's not going to work! it's not compatible, either buy an external CD/DVD Drive. or replace your CD Drive with a DVD/CD Drive.

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.

Won't even read cd's- autostart fails...


There are two lasers, one for CDs, other for DVDs. Sounds like the CD read (and possibly Write) laser is worn out, or defective. Time for a new drive. DVDs will be fine, because they don't use the other laser at all.
