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.

Also try uninstalling and reinstalling in device manager and check the cables to make sure they are properly seated.

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.

Windows XP has "built-in" support for reading/writing CDs and for reading DVD disks from _all_ manufacturers.

Access http://www.MajorGeeks.com and search for "Ashampoo burning free version 6". This is _free_ software that makes it easy to burn CD/DVD disks.

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.

I hve a gemini cd 200 and the left deck stopped reading cd's. when i put in a disk the lcd reads no disk. What cuold be the problem.


Just like with any CD player, the optics have lifetimes. Either the optics are dirty and can not read the disk or they have failed. These units use KSS-213 optics assemblies from Sony, if I remember correctly. These can be purchased for around $25. Any one with audio repair experience should be able to replace them for you.

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.
