    Please clairify ... Is this the DVD burning software that can't find the drive. Can you see the DVD drive in My Computer if its a Microsoft based machine?

Logout and login, or reboot the machine to see if hardware detection corrects the problem. If not the drive may have just gone bad.

The x`box was saying it can't read the disc. contact u


If you have the new kinect xbox 360 dashboard and you cannot get your xbox 360 console to read your game discs or DVDs, you are not alone. An update that was recently applied through Xbox Live makes your discs unreadable.
Remove the update by navigating to:
System Settings->Memory->STOP HERE!
You should see your Hard Drive highlighted, if not move to it and then enter this on your controller:
X,LB,RB,X,LB,RB,X
Delete System Update will appear, make sure there is no media in your disc drive and select YES. You system will restart and appear to hang DO NOT TURN IT OFF OR MESS WITH IT!
After a couple minutes your system will start and you should be able to play discs again.

Do you have a backup disc i.e. an operating system disc! as it sounds like you may have to reload the complete operating system. If restore cant be accessed then you will undoubtedly will have to do a clean install!

DVD Burner popping up as ''CD Player'' Wonder if any of you have come across this issue before (and it is veryserious, i have two new games to play!!!). Have an LG DVD Burner, gotSoulstorm for Christmas...


I came across this a few yars back, but i cant for the life of me think how i solved it, i think you have to right click on the drive in my compuer, click properties, and on the recording tab make sure the first checkbox is checked.

I also had this problem on an LG drive.

Electronic touch pad not working on my oven


Hello beachlady80,
Welcome

You said, It was working fine last night but when you woke up this morning the display has 3 vertical lines and none of the electronic touch pads work. The burners on top of the stove still work.

What is the model number and how old is the range ?

Try turning the breaker off for 10 minutes and then on again after this allotted time.
This may reset the system.
Let me know how it works.


Waiting for your answer.
Huuum

Please remember to leave a rating.
Hopefully it will be a solved!
Let me know

Disc tray


Not entirely sure but maybe the disk drive bricked, though I wouldn't replace it without looking into it more.  But it would make sense consider the noises.  Was there anything attached to the disc or was the disc damaged after this incident?
