LG GH22NS70 Super multi DVD Rewriter just used


Power cable attached, interface cable attached, (Dta cable), and the small audio cable attached, plus computer on, and Windows loaded.

Windows XP:
1) Click on Start

2) Right-click on My Computer

3) Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list

4) Left-click on the Hardware tab

5) Left-click on Device Manager

6) When Device Manager loads, left-click on the + sign to the left of - DVD/CD-ROM drives

7) Right-click on the name of the optical drive.

8) Left-click on Uninstall

A Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up,
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device"
It's okay. Click on OK.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off normally. (Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off)

Wait 1 minute. Turn the computer back on.
You should get a pop-up out of the system tray, "Found new hardware", and perhaps another one will follow, "Found XXXX DVD drive"

No? Doesn't work?
Try using another 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.

(The IDE harddrive shown, is just an example of a device that uses a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable. Mistakenly referred to as a 'Molex' power cable)

Make sure the interface cable (Data cable) is plugged in tightly.

MY HP DVD WRITER HL-DT-ST DVD RAM GSA-H20L WILL NOT RECOGNIZE CD'S OF ANY TYPE AND VARIOUS DVD MEDIA


ya... its lens/laser is getting ruined...!
such symptoms are quite obvious.

check it would be able to read non-empty Disc(pre-written CD's).
but not able to detect/read empty disc.

May be it can read and write branded Disc which comes in packing case such as "sony"
but not ordinary disc which are sold in loose packing.

if it is under warranty period. then it will be repaired or replaced free of cost.

Dvd writer will not read any disc can i replace the internal cd/dvd writer with any other


Hi:
Yes, you can replace your DVD writer with any other model, but there are 2 types, SATA and IDE.
The IDE drives connect with a wide , flat ribbon connector, and the newer, SATA drives take a smaller cable.

They are easy to swap out, and are basically plug and play!

My CD/DVD rom drives have quit operating . What can I do to restore them ?


A friend of mine had the same problem, we couldn't get his dvd writer to work. It would read the CD but it couldn't burn dvds/cds. We had to buy a new DVD writer. You can get a really good one for around $60. An asus one is good. Check to make sure your dvd writer is plugged in usually by IDE cable and power cable. Newer ones might have SATA. Get a new one and unmount the old one and place the new one where the old one was. You'll need an antistatic wrist strap to ground yourself.

I have a HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H31N DVD writer It plays CD's just fine. Will not do anything when I insert a DVD. Tried different kind. Go to my computer and it just shows D: I have a Dell Dimension...


Hey there,

Solution:
This problem occurs when your Writer lens goes bad. There is nothing wrong with your system. Just go n get replaced your DVD Writer lens.

Symptom:
It causes so cause your lens has several power regulation. It increases the power as well as decreases the power depends on your layers of your Disc. You might be knowing that your DVD has much more density in space as well as in layers to write than CD. If there are much more depth in the layers a bad lens cannot read the contents.

Gimme Acknowladgement by rating me.

Thanx.

Drive does read audio cd but not dvd.writer also can't burn any.


If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.

Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:

Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...
