Question about LG GSA-4167B DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner
I've got a problem with LG GSA-4167B Driver.
When i start my computer and login it doesn't read any knd of disc (to be honest i reads a free space and want to format the disc)
(* - more info)
To open any disc I have to logoff and login again.
I'm using Winows Vista.
* Now more detailed description: 1. I put the disc in 2. It starts spinning 3. It stops spinning 4. I open "Computer" and I see how many free space is on the disc 5. When i doubleclick on icon the disc starts to spin 6. "Format this disc" window appear 7. Disc doesn't stop spinning until putting disc out.
as with all writers eventually they fault at the lens and it gets out of line and cannot read discs, you can try the usual thing of checking LG for any firmware updates, but first:- Go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays.

What is happening is that the dvdrom firmware or the laser is failing and cannot read the disc; and because the pc is using all the system resources trying to do so; it appears that you cannot get anything to run, making it seem as if the hard drive is faulty also, though not the case. You will need to replace the drive if this is a common occurance, as the life of a dvd drive nowadays dependant on use is aprox 2 years, because as the prices come down so does the quality of the laser required to burn and read discs.
