You can try the below link that will automatically diagnose and repair problems with your CD or DVD drive when trying to read or burn media.
http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cd_dvd_drive_problems
It could also be possible that the CD/DVD drive itself could have gone bad. Remove and reinstall drivers:
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click System and Security, click System, and then click Device Manager.
Note If Control Panel is in Classic View, double-click System, and then click Device Manager.
3. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
4. In Device Manager, expand DVD/CD-ROM drives, right-click the CD and DVD devices, and then click Uninstall.
5. When you are prompted to confirm that you want to remove the device, click OK.
6. Restart the computer.

SOURCE: cd/dvd drive problem

Try with another brand of disk; the Matsushita UJ870 drive of our 5315 burn my Sony CD's but not my Philips CD's (my Compaq V2617LA with an older Matsushita UJ840 drive has burned Phillips CD's in the last two monts)... Remember: CD and DVD lassers are different. I think because of that, i haven't see problems with Sony, Philips and Samsung DVD's... only with CD's...

SOURCE: the disc drive wont burn a dvd or even play cd or

was it preinstalled or you installed it yourself ? either way sorry to tell you but drives do give out, and some times the cd-rom and dvd - rom drives the hardest to fix, but you can research http://www.geeks.com/ and find yourself a new one for around 40-50 dollars...

another thing, if you installed this drive yourself, you can pull it out and check the jumper and make sure its either cable select or slave or master, which ever you want to set it up as....

i usally put all my drives in cable select so the computer will select which drives goes first and things are juts alot easier that way....

How do I format a dvd disc


You don't have to. DVD's and CD's are already formatted from factory. But if you are having problems to record on (burn) them probably your computer is not capable for DVD burn, just CD's. But if it is equipped for burning then try this:
See alsoFormat a CD or DVD


Before you can copy files to a CD or DVD, the disc must first be prepared using a process called formatting. There are several ways to format a CD or DVD disc. Your choice of format determines which computers and other devices will be able to read the disc.

  1. Insert a disc into your computer's CD or DVD drive.

  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to disc.

  3. In the Burn a disc dialog box, type a name for your new disc.

  4. Click Show formatting options, and then click one of the following formatting options:

    • Live File System

    • Mastered

  5. Click Next to prepare the disc.

    Now you can copy files to your disc using whichever method you selected.

I am new to the computer world & need some help ? How do i transfer my pictures from my computer to a disc ? Thanks


This is for windows 7:
Click the Burn button.
  1. Open your Pictures library from the Start menu and select your desired photos.
  2. Select the photos and folders you want to copy by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking their icons. Or, to select all the photos within a folder, press Ctrl+A.
  3. Need to select photos from multiple folders? Don't select any photos or folders in this step. Proceed with the rest of the burn process and Windows 7 will open an empty window showing the newly inserted disc's contents: nothing. Drag and drop the photos you want to burn into that window. When you're ready, go back to the Pictures Library and click Burn.

  4. Insert a blank CD or DVD into your writable disc drive.

  5. Decide how you want to use the disc:

    1. Like a USB flash drive:

    2. Choose this option when you intend for other PCs to read the disc. Windows 7 treats the disc much like a folder, letting you copy additional photos to the disc later.
    3. With a CD/DVD player: Choose this option to create discs that play on CD and DVD players attached to TVs. Don't choose this unless you plan to view the disc on a TV. You can't add any images to this disc later, so be sure to get them all selected the first time.

  6. Type a name for your disc and click Next.

  7. Click the Burn or Burn to Disc button again, if necessary.

Im getting a message that says "this disc requires on-the fly copying" What does that mean?


which burning software are you using
When using the on-the-fly method, insert the original disc into a drive and a recordable disc into the drive. The original disc in the drive is copied immediately without any time delay to the blank disc in the recorder. The on-the-fly method allows you to copy discs very quickly, and does not require any additional space on the disc.
In order to be able to use the on-the-fly method, you will need at least two drives: one for reading the disc and a disc burner for writing. The following requirements apply to the read drive and disc burner:

· The disc burner must feature buffer underrun protection, or the drive must be capable of delivering the data sufficiently quickly. The read speed should be at least twice as fast as the write speed.

· The read drive must be capable of delivering information on the number and type of sessions, otherwise Nero Burning ROM may not be able to produce an exact copy.

If you want to copy Audio CDs, we recommend the copy image method because the quality of the read audio files can suffer depending on the drive.

Hope this helps

Free download for lg dvd drivers gh22np20


I'll recommend you to directly try Driver Detective and let the software have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing LG drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system issues.

Best regards!

I want to down load a song on my computer to a disc. How do I do this?


* First you should have a CD/DVD Burner on your computer (ordinary CD player would not work).
* Load the blank disc into the DVD burner
* Open the folder where the song is, highlight the song by clicking it once.
* Click on "copy this file" and then select the DVD drive.
* Then the file should start downloading.

Have a great day!

Burning DVD


Impossible, since your device _reads_ CDs/DVDs, but does not _write_ either CD nor DVD.

Do you have a USB memory-stick (holding 4Gbytes) ?
If so, copy the files to the memory-stick,
and take the memory-stick to your friend's computer,
presuming that his/her computer has a DVD-writer.
That DVD can be _read_ on your computer.

Dvd/cd-rw combo does not record


You may have what is called a combo drive...it can play and burn cds but can only play dvds, not burn them. Look at the face plate on the drive and see what is written on it. If it has the following:
Recordable Drive = CD Burner
DVD = DVD Player
RW & DVD = DVD Burner

If recordable drive and DVD is on the drive but no RW, chances are its a combo drive. Keep us posted.
