I had the same problem with the GH22 Internal drive on vista. Assuming this is the only cd drive you have, just go to the device manager and remove/uninstall anything under "DVD/CD Rom Drives" then restart. It should get picked up and recognized properly. It took a couple of restarts to work. For refrence, I only have the LG GH22NP20 installed, what appears in device manager are 2 items... (1)HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22NP20 SCSI CdRom Device... (2) KU1051Q EAG855E SCSI CdRom Device... Incase you have multiple cd drives, this should help tell em appart. Enjoy. IDK399

I went to the BIOS and activate the relevant SATA socket to which I connected my DVD writer. At reload windows detected a new device and all is well; No driver is needed.

Im having trouble with my drives it wont read the cd or burn the cd or dvd


Hello there,

If your LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe does not read disc, burn cds or dvd, then it means there is a problem with the lens of the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe.

You will have to replace the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe or have the lens replaced.

Be sure not to use the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe to watch movies as that weakens the lens easily.

Hope this helped.
Goodluck

Hi,

The issue seems not related to the LG Burners, possible the disc in which you are trying to burn may be issue.

Can you try with the different brand disk.

Can I put internal LG GH22 rewriter inside external GSA-E60N


First, open the external casing.
You'll find an "internal" CD/DVD drive, connected to an adapter, and the adapter connects to the USB cable.

Now, look at the adapter -- it could be a "parallel-ATA" interface, or it could be a "SATA" interface. The new CD/DVD drive will have to have the same connectors (data and power) as the adapter.

You might have to exchange the SATA device for a Parallel-ATA device.

If you have a parallel-ATA CD/DVD drive, look at the back of it.
There is a tiny jumper, and a few labelled settings:

* MA(ster)
* SL(ave)
* C(able)S(elect)

Move the jumper to the 'MA' setting, so that the USB-adapter will recognize the CD/DVD drive.

Connect the drive to the adapter.
Close the case.
You're good to go!

Need Driver for LG GH22 22x DVD Drive


Remove the new drive -- and look VERY closely on the back.
You'll find a "two-by-four" grid of gold pins, probably with a black "jumper" between a pair of pins.

Look closely at the labels above each pair of pins:
* MA(ster)
* SL(ave)
* C(able)S(elect)

Move the jumper from its current position to one of the other pins.
Reinstall the drive, and reconnect the power and data cables.
Check that the other-end of the data-cable is snugly connected to the motherboard.

Windows should now "detect new hardware", the next time you start-up.

My LG GH-22LP20 Super Multi DVD Rewriter cannot read anymore DVDs. It can only read CDs. How do I solve this? Help!


It's "dying" -- replace it. If it is an "external" casing, with an "internal" DVD-writer inside, you could open the casing, remove the "dead" drive, buy a new drive, and install it into the case.
