According to Asus there are many burned dvd formats that are not supported or simply do not work in this drive. Asus stated that most dvd-r should work but not all, and that is the only burned dvd media that works. You may want to look into buying a different drive.

Asus DRW-241st stopped recognizing any DVD's though it still reads CD's. Other then that it seems to be running just fine.


Good day sir, Try to clean it with a CD lens cleaner if problem persist.I recommend replacing your optical disk drive or use it as a slave for reading CD's so that your new ODD will last long. in my opinion most DVDRAM, player etc. can read most formats except Bluray disc. using the device from reading CD,VCD and DVD lessen's the device life span.
sometimes if we rarely use the ODD its already not working.

My CD will not open when I press (''open'')


Hi, Gary.

Give these a try:

In My Computer, right-click your CD's drive letter and select Eject.

Open a paper clip and insert in a tiny pinhole in the drive.

Hope one of these helps.

Cd/dvd rom LG GSA-T10N doesn't burn or read any dvd


Hi,

some drives ( multi-Drives ) will read and write CDs but Only read DVDs.
Also check that the Drive supports DVD- Or DVD+ Disks.
Check that there are no yellow Marks In The Device Manager. to Do this:- My Computer/Control Panel/System/Device Manager to ensure all drivers are corectly installed.

Wont work


Sounds like there may be an issue with the drive itself. I would return it or replace it. As for windows...If this problem persists after a replacement, i would re install windows.
