    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.

Dear sir, my dvd burner in my LG LW40EXPRESS has stopped working, it cant register any CD or DVD in the drive, it does not seem to spin, the small light on the outside of the case stays on, so I think its...


Hi mibry,

Try some different discs as some DVD Burners do not work with some different brands, if not it would most likely require replacement, I have gone through a few laptops which drives that just fail (even though you barley use the drives). You can try pulling out the DVD drive and pushing it back in just encase the connector has moved from traveling. You can try contacting LG for a replacement drive, LG hasn't really been in the computer market for a long time so finding a replacement from other vendors will prove to be difficult. your last option would be just to get an external burner. I hope some of this information will shed some light as to which path you should take.

Regards,

Omeil

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.

DVD Duplicator has taken a crap!


DVD burners only last so long unfortunately! I've replaced many myself and have found that it's also not worth buying any lite-on in my opinion. Have a look around using the link below and you'l get a decent brand at a low price. Once a DVD writer has burned lot's of discs the lens itself becomes burnt out as far as I am aware, sometimes after 200 burns with cheap ones.

Individual drives - the pioneer at £18.99 isd a great buy!

hope this helps

Cant play DVD ROMs


you can try uninstalling the drive, by going to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look down the list for cd/dvd drives, click on '+' sign and right click on your drive make and select uninstal. Restart pc and your drive will be reinstalled automatically again. If you have a cd cleaner disc run that also. Try to run the game again, although it may still not work as the drives laser seems to be out of line or simply run it's life, and a new drive is the only answer i'm afraid.

Source Drive Not Ready


whatever programme you are using, ensure that if you have a second cd/dvd drive that this one is not set as the default burner, as there are normally options to choose. other than that the drive must be being used by another burning programme or a programme to read discs, so check that there are no other programmes running in the background that use the writer. Lastly, go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and in the list dvd/cd drives, click'+' sign and on you drive, right click, select uninstal and reboot the pc, at which point the drive will be installed again automatically and hopefully, release the drive for whatever you want to burn.
