Hi there,

Sounds like the drive belt may have slipped off or snapped. You can open the tray manually. To do this, take a look at the front of the drive where the open button is, and there should be a small hole, just big enough for the blunt end of a sewing needle. This is the manual release.

The other thing is, it might just be catching on the case (may have been knocked at some point). Disconnect and remove the drive, then just put it back in. If you have a desktop, you can remove the front panel of the drive and re-attach it.

Hope those solve the problem

Regards,
Tim

Dvd layer 2 not accessible on dual layer disk


Ah, the Dual-Layer Problem. Well, first off, you bought an LG. Problem solved!!! ASUS, Pioneer, TSSCorp, Sony, ASUTek USA, or any other brand OTHER than LG is good for burning Dual-Layer DVD's. And for God's sake, LEARN how to use Nero Ultra Edition for your burning needs. It has a technology called "BUFFER." you should really read up on that bro.

Burner continues to burn only a portion of the DVD


Some DVDs are dual layer, some are double sided, some are double sided and dual layer. You must be sure you are using the correct media and that your drive can program it. Most store-bought DVD movies are dual layer, and if you try to copy them onto a regular DVD, then you will only copy about half of the movie.

Burning dvd/cd


Hello there. As of about 5 or so years ago, it really doesn't matter which format of blank dvd you use to burn a disk to. if the intended player is around, or definitley older than that I would check on the specs in the manual to make sure.

Can't Burn Dual-Layer Disks


First, be sure your DVD burner is capable of burning dual-layered discs- Second, it may be rather an issue of copy protection on the disc. Have you succesfully copied commercial DVD's in this fashion? I'm unsure if I'm allowed to mention any software that might assist you in that regard- google is your friend.
