    I have the same problem. Hard Drive records and playsback fine, no problem, but, will not record or play discs just comes up with message "cannot read disc" or "disc error". Has worked originally for just over 12 months, ironically, but now warranty expired. Tried cleaning with dpecial disc, plus air blower I use for my camera, but, no avail. I am told I need to replace the "optical block" apparently. Annoyed that this item from Curry's has proved such a poor purchase.

    Me too.
    I tried using DVD-R, DVD-RW (the one provided), CD-R, CD-RW, All i get is no disc or disc error.
    Apparently, according to another post, we should just replace the whole damn dvd drive..

    I am not going to risk it but rather, call LG up tomorrow.

Replace the whole DVD-Drive. Since mine was under warrenty, they changed the whole drive for me free of charge. And additionally, wierd thing was that even the NEW drive could not read a few of my DATA discs.. They offered to take it back, analyze it and give me a firmware update if required..

Finalise disc


You need to put the disk back into the recorder, select the finalize function from the onscreen menu, and follow prompts. Do you have an owners manual for the unit?

Could be the dvd player/lens. The player sucks up dust through the
player's caddy and after a while it won't read discs anymore.
A cd cleaner or a good (gently dosed) blow with compressed air might help.
