Question about LG (GCC-4522BI) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner
Hi I have lg dvd combo 4522B. It worked fine for 4 months after purchasing it. After that it refused to read DVD. But it reads CD and CD-RW. I can burn CD and CD-RW. The only problem is it does not read DVD. Very Rarely it reads some DVD. When i put the dvd on the drive it tries to read (LED blinks)the dvd but after some seconds, LED stops blinking. If i open cd drive on my computer it is empty. I tried to uninstall cd driver in device manager. I tried to reinstall XP. I tried different types of DVD. I tried the DVD drive with my friend's machine. Nothing works. Please help me.........
There are separate lasers for CD reading, and for DVD reading. This is why it is possible to have a drive that reads only CDs but not DVDs, or the other way around. And your particular combo unit seems to have a lot of these problems. Since the drive doesn't work it's almost definitely a problem with the drive itself (I'm assuming that there is nothing wrong with the discs you tried to read). If that drive is still covered by a warranty period, send it back for repairs. Otherwise, I can't see the harm in trying to tinker with it yourself as the DVD portion of it is dead anyways. Ummm, on a side note...CompUSA is going out of business and they are selling things cheap. I got a DVD lightscribe burner for $40...booyah!
