I have a LG HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM-GSA-H55N, the problem is i can't play DVD and burn DVD files, once i insert a disc it can not read, but when i insert cd audio it can play... what is the problem about this...


What has happened is the heads are out of alignment. The dvd's need a lot more accuracy than the cd's do so they stop working first. Eventually it will also stop working on the cd's.

These are not worth repairing these days as the replacement cost is far cheaper than what the cost would be to realign the heads. You should be able to get a dvd reader for $30. For $10 more you can get a a new dvd burner. So the best advice is to just do a bit of shopping for a deal on a new one and replace it.

Hi, I have LG GSA-H55N for over 1 year. Recently, it cannot read from CD, whenever I inserts CD, My PC shows that no CD inserted. But for DVD it can read and write successfuly


try to re-install the driver, if it can read DVD's means that your optic lens are ok and the mechanical parts are fine,it is just the software problem, Re-install your driver

Normally, if this happens you need to replace the drive, the laser pickup for DVD's has failed and is not replaceable....

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.

My lg GSA-H55N dvd writer is not playing Cds but plays Dvds fine


your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution
thankyou

Super multi dvd writer gsa-h55n


Well, since I received a solution from MAXTRIXKHAN, I just wanted to check back with NCIX.com, and here is a recap of what I did, and what they told me...

After a few tries, I had to contact LG Customer service.
I tried to burn to...

-Maxell CD-R, no problems,
-TDK DVD-RW, no problems,
-Verbatim DVD+R, Computer hangs.

Well, I bought this DVD-Writer to replace my old GSA-4167B, and LG customer service told me that this DVD-Writer does not support the Verbatim DVDs.


So, if you have plenty of Verbatim DVDs, you should forget about this writer.

Supported DVDs...
Maxell, Sony, TDK

Will have to send it back to NCIX

So beware
