Try cleaning disc to clean the lens.....If this doesn't help I suggest you get a new Player as fixing would approximately cost you the same amount as for the new one

Cheers!

My LG superdrive connot read disk and when click his icon he automaticall eject the tray plz help me


Hi There

It seems to me, and I may be wrong, that you are trying to burn a incorrect disk. If ou want to burn a CD, you have to select a CD as destination disk, and if you want to burn a DVD, you have to select a DVD as destination disk. If you try to burn a DVD but LG program is set to CD, it will eject the disk and wait for the correct disk.

It will also happen if you try to burn a 8.5Gb DVD but have a 4.7Gb DVD in the drive.

Hope this helps

My cd rom tray will not eject and the light is


have you manually tried to eject the disc tray? There's a little hole on there somewhere, stick an unbent paperclip or safety pin in it and push until the tray starts to come out, then pull the tray out with your fingers.

Once you've done that, push the button to allow the tray to automatically retract.

Will not read disks


Is this an older drive? Possible that the drive is dying. I had this happen to me once. I ended up buying a new cd/dvd burner. The laser works different when reading verse burning, so it is possible that it is dead, but still working just enough to burn.

Incompatible disk message


You need to read page 8 of the JVC CU-VD20 DVD Burner instruction manual:
Recommended DVD-R Vendor - JVC, TDK, Verbatim, SONY
Writing Speed for DVD-R is 8X maximum, this is the real issue as I first bought 16X TDKs and they did not work, so now I need to buy 8X.
That's a bummer as most stores only supply 16X now.

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE


When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
