SOURCE: LG GSA-4167B DVD Writer... PC restarts whenever any CD is inserted

What is happening is that the dvdrom firmware or the laser is failing and cannot read the disc; and because the pc is using all the system resources trying to do so; it appears that you cannot get anything to run, making it seem as if the hard drive is faulty also, though not the case. You will need to replace the drive if this is a common occurance, as the life of a dvd drive nowadays dependant on use is aprox 2 years, because as the prices come down so does the quality of the laser required to burn and read discs.

Check the box or manual of your DVD writer... See if it support the DVD format of the DVD disk... There are a lot DVD formats nowadays, like DVD, DVD4, HDVD, HDVD-9, etc...

I hate them too, for some DVD works only on a DVD-Player not on computers.

Hi,
if the device is being recognised, As D:- Or E:- et,c.
right click on the device, and select options from there.
such as open/explore et,c.
If the disk has been written to in any way shape or form, even the smallest file. then the disk being read will be classed as empty.
try a different CD Disk, And try re-installing your CD writing software.
Hope this helps mike @ Compurepair.

Can I purchase an attachment cd player to my acer aspire one?


Netbooks are done without space for DVD drive, so you must purchase external DVD drive.
This should work for you: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135216&cm_re=external_dvd_drive_usb-_-27-135-216-_-Product

It is connected via USB, and I think doesn't need any other source of power.
It's really great solution for people without dvd drives.

You just need to simply plug the one end (USB Type B) of the USB cable to the external DVD writer then plug the other end (USB Type A) to your notebook. Then, let your Operating System to automatically install the driver for your DVD writer. Let me know if this works.

External dvd writer


You would be able to boot from the external drive but you will not be able to run an operating system from it. It would allow you to install another operating system if that is what you mean? If i understand you correctly though, you would like to say perhaps, have windows xp on your laptop and maybe run windows vista on your external? Maybe get to choose which one to run. This is not possible. Sorry. I hope this helps!
