LG DVD RW drive not detecting DVD/CD

Hi,
I have a LG GSA-4082B DVD RW drive attached to my Desktop. It had been working fine until recently it stopped detecting any DVD/CD inserted into the drive. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver but it did not work. I am unable to read or write a DVD/CD. Could you please help me troubleshoot this?

Start the Run Command Prompt

Type in "regedit" without the parrenthesis then click ok

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Then SYSTEM

Then CURRENT CONTROL SET

Then CONTROL

Then CLASS

Then find {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

The whole thing looks like this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Then delete the upper and lower filters.... (if lower filter is not there then leave it)

RESTART YOUR COMPUTER THEN THERE YA GO!!!! HOPE THIS HELPS

Hi, Sometimes these problem arises if any virus attacks your system, so first make your system virus free. And if its not the problem then your lense in the dvd drive is not working properly, its better to make repair it so that it works properly.

DVD RW Drive


Vista sucks. However, delete your drive and change the IDE cable. Also, put the drive onto another IDE channel so it re-initializes your drive - winodws data bases a drive when it has more than 5 DMA errors and clocks its speed down to PIO - very slow

You shouldn't need drivers. The only thing you can update on your drive would be the firmware. What exactly are you trying to do? If you're talking about burning music/videos/data then you need programs such as nero. Which comes free with most CD/DVDRW's now.

Problem burnind and reading!


Check that the writable DVDs you are using are compatible (+/-) with your LG DVD-RAM.
Go to Windows Explorer and check to see if the Sony drive is visible. It may not be connected or the Jumper switch may be set incorrectly.
Check you have drivers installed, take a look in Hardware manager.
Sometimes, it's a little difficult to copy CDs and DVDs when you have more than one burning suite installed - for some reason, they 'just don't get along'. Try uninstalling any suites other than Nero.
Or it may just be that your LG CD-RW drive is just that, and your DVD-RW drive is just that. So it wouldn't be possible to write DVDs on the CD-RW and CDs on the DVD-RW? Though I would assume Nero would detect that and use your hard-drive as temporary storage.
In Nero SmartStart, have you selected the CD or DVD tab to correspond to the project you're burning?

Choppy video on my LG DVD Super multi DVD Rewriter GSA-H44 N/L


There are many causes one a slow processor speed ( even by pentium III 933mhz stuttered when i was playing divx) two needing to update the dvd software . Third the lense being dirty spay compressed air into the drive.
