Well this apparently is a large problem with Lenovo and specific drives coming out of India Such as Matsh*ta Drives...and the Lenovo people have not addressed this......There are several Ideas floating about...One person noted that his DVD drive is working great with the Vista OS...others that have downgraded to a better (fewer problems) XP OS/platform have had many problems with the CD/DVD drives...so it could be Software or Hardware related however...one person noted (his words not mine) =
"Problem is that some dust accumulate on the lens of the drive and hence it stops recognizing the discs.So what I did yesterday is that I opened the drive, then opened its screws and then cleaned the lens with a soft and clean cloth. after that i put it back in its place and then my drive started recognizing all the discs."
So I hope some how the problem is solved for you all soon and I hope this has been helpful in some way...Thanks ..The Fang

The yellow exclamation point in the device manager means there is a problem with the drive. It could something as simple as installing a driver for the drive or it could be that the drive is bad. Hope this helps & please rate my answer. Thanks.

Cant even READ DVD


the XP driver really should work appropriately. I might assume that the drive is damaged (which happens to me frequently with older DVD drives).

LG CD/DVD combo does not recognize virgin DVD´s


DVD combo do not burn DVD's they can only read DVD read CD and burn CD to burn on a dvd you need a dvd writer. A DVD combo is a combination of just a DVD ROM and a CD-RW.

with some models (even of LG) you only get one drive DVD/CD-RW but in dome version it shows as two different drives DVD and CD-RW. consider this as partioning of a drive if its to be analogued to HDD (though its not partioning its just diffrent PROMS)

Hope you understand that there is nothing wrong with your combo its just that you are expecting it to be a DVD-RAM which it is not.
