Question about LG GSA-H42N 18x DVD RW DL IDE Drive (Black) Burner

1 Answer

No disks being read in the LG drive.

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:''Table Normal''; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:''''; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:''Times New Roman'';}I copied and burned CDs in the LG drive this morning. This afternoon, the drive fails to read any CDs. When looking into Device Manager, it tells me that the drive is working properly. When I insert a CD into the LG drive, it turns a few times and then stops. Windows Explorer cannot recognize anything on the LG drive. When searching the drive with Total Commander 7.02, it says ''Drive not found''

I have another Samsung Read-Only drive. All disks are being read normally on that drive.

Open the draw and give it a blast with compressed air from an aerosol can or play a CD lens cleaning disk, if that doesn't work, don't try too hard, get a second hand replacement from ebay or any second hand shop you have near you.

My Iomega CDRW64001 keeps ejecting my blank CDs. The external LED blinks for several minutes and then ejects the CD with or without a burn program open. It plays recorded CDs and I'm able to install...


Your best solution (since your USB devices and your network-adapter are not working) is to remove the disk-drive from the old computer, and temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in the new computer, and then copy all your files from "old" to "new".

Or, try a different brand of "blank" CD-R disks -- the "firmware" (software inside the CD-writer) may not be recognizing "newly-manufactured" media). Unless you can update the firmware (by downloading the latest firmware on another computer, and burning a CD-R disk, and then taking that disk to your computer), it's easiest to "move" the disk-drive to the new computer.

I have a CD burner that doesn't burn.


If you own a cleaning disk for CD players, use it, if not, buy one (not expensive) and if that fails, replace the drive. They are not expensive as new but could be very costly to repair.

Hi,

some drives ( multi-Drives ) will read and write CDs but Only read DVDs.
Also check that the Drive supports DVD- Or DVD+ Disks.

Problem burnind and reading!


Check that the writable DVDs you are using are compatible (+/-) with your LG DVD-RAM.
Go to Windows Explorer and check to see if the Sony drive is visible. It may not be connected or the Jumper switch may be set incorrectly.
Check you have drivers installed, take a look in Hardware manager.
Sometimes, it's a little difficult to copy CDs and DVDs when you have more than one burning suite installed - for some reason, they 'just don't get along'. Try uninstalling any suites other than Nero.
Or it may just be that your LG CD-RW drive is just that, and your DVD-RW drive is just that. So it wouldn't be possible to write DVDs on the CD-RW and CDs on the DVD-RW? Though I would assume Nero would detect that and use your hard-drive as temporary storage.
In Nero SmartStart, have you selected the CD or DVD tab to correspond to the project you're burning?

CD Burner stops in middle of burning


Hi KayGo, People hate going over the basics but gotta ask: -Have you tried cleaning your read/write heads using a commercial cleaner? -Do you have any problems reading CDs? -What Brand of CDs are you using? If you're using the cheapies you should try a few quality brands such as HP or Fugi. -Have you checked the drives manufacturers specifications for blank disks? -What recording speed are you using? Try setting it lower and see if that has any effect. -How much reading and writing have you done with this drive? They do wear out and CD only R/W drives have a history of not lasting long. -Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives - http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/diagnostics.htm#dwn Let us know if you need any other assistance and don't forget to rate the posting.
