SOURCE: LG recordable no longer recognized by pc

Go to Start/Control Panel/System/ Hardware /Device Manager/DVD/CD Rom Drives
double click on the Icon and click on the driver tab
click then on the update driver.

This will refresh the system.
But of course it may the the device itself that has failed
Only a replacement will cure that.

WARRANTY
You have conflicting advice from others on the length of the warranty. 1 year is the most likely. Whichever it is, you should still be covered. However, there are a few things you should try before returning the device under warranty, because if you do and no fault is found, you risk incurring a Testing Charge.

CD / DVD WRITING
You don't say which Burning Software you use. Assuming your PC previously had no burning capability and that you're relatively new to burning, you may not be aware that the latest versions of popular burning applications like Nero have a Drop Down Menu at the top of the Welcome Dialog Box where you switch from CD to DVD or combination CD/DVD functionality. It may be that your software is set to DVD. If so, either set it to the 'CD/DVD' option or toggle between CD and DVD as required. Then re-test the device.

LENS CLEANING
As advised elsewhere, buy a Lens Cleaning Disc and run it, then re-test the device (although I suspect 6 months is too short a time for dust accumulation to be the source of the problem, unless the inside of the PC is very dusty, in which case, disconnect it from the power and carefully clean as much dust out as possible, before cleaning the lenses).

BIOS CORRUPTION
If the device still does not work, your BIOS may have been corrupted and is not recognizing the device properly. If you are familiar with the BIOS, then enter BIOS and reset it to Default Values. Reboot. Re-test the device.

If you're not familiar with the BIOS, then avoid it as resetting certain values could stop your PC from working. There is another, safer way of achieving a similar result.

If you have some hardware installation experience (I am assuming you installed the device yourself):

Shut your PC down.

Disconnect the PC's power cable.

Open the PC.

Taking care not disturb other internal connections, disconnect the device's SATA or IDE Data cable and its SATA or MOLEX Power cable.

Re-connect the PC's power cable.

Reboot the PC.

Once fully booted, shut the PC down again.

Disconnect the PC's power cable again.

Avoiding other internal connections, re-connect the device's Data and Power cables.

Close the PC.

Re-connect the PC's power cable.

Reboot.

Wait, carefully watching the bottom right hand corner of the desktop screen for the Device Recognition / Successful Installation / Device Ready for Use notifications.

Test the device again.

FIRMWARE UPDATE
If the device still does not work, it's firmware may be out of date. Go to the LG website.

Support > Downloads > Operating System > Device Type > Device Name (full model number) > Firmware Update > Download > Install > Reboot.

Wait for Device Ready notification.

Test the device.

FAULT WARRANTY
If none of these methods resolve the problem, it is almost certainly faulty and should be returned under warranty for repair or, preferably, replacement.

Good luck.

Hi ruggie_p,


Since you have an Internet connection to your PC, you should download codec to your Windows Media Player for it to play DVD's.

I have recorded single track on to rewritable disc. on windows media player . it has been finalised will not allow me to record another track to disc. How do i do this? many thanks ALEX


If you are using CD +/- R cds or DVD +/-, you can only write to them once. Once something has been written to the disk no mater how small, that is the only time it will write. In order to add multiple tracks to a disk you will have to create a play list that will fit on the disk then burn the entire list all at once. The only disks that allow for multiple write capabilities are CDRW +/- or DVDRW +/-. When using those types of disks, make sure you do not overwrite the tracks that are already installed on the disks.

My Mustek DVD player does not play DVD's recorded on the pc. On the pc all the regular programs like media player and power dvd play the disk, but the Mustek player says ''Wrong disk'' What can I do?


some players will only play back DVD-R .. some only DVD+R .. many older ones wont play DVD rewritables at all...

DVD+ and - R recordings have lower contrast than purchased factory DVDs .. so if the laser in your mustek has a bit of dust then that will first effect computer written disks .. you can get a cleaning disk .. those have little brushes that brush off dust from the laser lens .. more likely though if your mustek is an older type, that you have to use DVDs that are compatable with it .. while DVD+R is the better format .. most older DVD players are compatable with DVD-R ... so thats kind of the standard that works in most players .. however there are a few exceptions .. most newer equip will play either, even rewritables ...

Tray B of my RCA CD Burner does not recognize any CDs


Are you using the correct disc type??

The manual states that only discs that are labeled:

"Compact Digital Audio Disc Recordable" (Audio CDR)

*or*

"Compact Digital Audio Disc Rewritable" (Audio CD-RW) can be used.

The popular discs labeled "Compact Recordable" and Compact Disc "Rewritable" are for use in computers, and can NOT be used on the recorder.

Page 16 of the manual shows the graphic of the logos detailed above. The manual can be downloaded for free below:
