Hi DARBAIL!
I have the same unit like you. I Have experienced that the cd/ dvd burner doesn't work because cables might have loosen up. Check the IDE cable if it was connected properly. Try to Check also the burner eg. Nero maybe it was not installed properly. Check the installation settings If it was installed completely. Try to check also the system of your computers may be the Direct X component was not installed.

If you have tune up utilities, Try to Check it properly using the device manager if it was installed in your system.

Lastly, after you have tried all of this but nothing is happening. Your unit CD/ DVD has faulted. Better buy a new one.

Hi Makman,

Please follow the below steps,

  1. Make sure there is no loose connection in the cable of the DVD RAM drive , try changing the slot if that is possible.
  2. Secondly , make sure you have a lens cleaner so that you can clean the lens and then check if things work fine.
  3. If the problem persists , the better option would be to get it checked via a external drive connector and see if it works fine or check it at your friend's PC and see the results,
  4. If then the problem persists, then it's surely an indication that the drive will die soon and will not be able to read anything or even probably be detected.

Hope this helps..:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

I have a Sony DVD DRU-820A burner. When I insert a dvd--either a blank one to burn or a DVD disc to view--the name of the drive switches from DVD-RAM Drive (D:) to CD Drive (D:). The burner no longer burns...


The device is _partially_ broken -- the part that reads/writes DVD media is "dead".

Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" unit.

DVD Drive not working.


Has the firmware of the drive been updated since you owned it? IF not the 1st thing to do is update the firmware from LG's support site. here..
http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp

your drive is listed as GSA-H55N
The Latest firmware is version 1.06

If this does not fix the situation the drive could be bad.

I am having a LG DVD writer GSA-4167B currently stops reading or writing disks after few runs


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.

DVD problem


You can try to clean the lens with some lens cleaners that are available almost anywhere. But it's most likely that the DVD laser is no longer working. (there are different lasers for DVD and CD just to let you know...) With DVD combo drives going down so fast in price, it might be better to just upgrade to a DVD combo lightscribe burner. (I paid $40 for one last week)
