I just posted a reply to another message that is almost the same. Could be you. It is the foam pad ring from a new CD or DVD spindle that was stuck on a disc that you put in and missed it. It does not go back in the drive. It goes in the trash.
The ring is used hold the discs solidly on new retail spindle. The noise was the drive strugging with an unbalanced disc.

If you caught it right away and nothing hit the laser or lens you are ok. Try reading or burning another disc.

Cheers

There should be a diagram on the drive indicating the jumper positions. Good luck!

Hi Iuly,



    • Download and install CCleaner (free) from Piriform

    • Run the cleaner to remove old un-needed temp files

    • Select the StartUp tab and look for any programs that you know you installed but no longer use or need, and disable them. Caution, do not disable any system files unless you absolutely know what they do and that you do not need them.

    • Run the Registry cleaner, when asked if you want to backup the registry, select YES, and save to a file you will remember just in case. I have used this program hundreds of time on many different system and it has never caused a problem, but you want to be safe, backup the Registry.

    • If asked about a particular file that it wants to clean, select "yes to all"

    • Reboot



Windows should reinstall the drive when the computer boots back up.

If this does not resolve your problem, try the following.



If you take all these step and you still can not burn a DVD, chances are your DVD burner componet needs to be replaced. Good Luck.

  • If this helps resolve your issue, would you please rate the solution

The jumper combination for a slave drive on an LG GSA-4163B


Most CD/DVD drives have a label showing the jumper setting for Master (MA), Slave (SL)and Cable Select (CS).
You only need a single jumper and it is inserted in a vertical position.
There are a group of 6 pins (3 columns of 2 pins) next to the 40 pin IDE connector.
The Slave setting is usually the middle set of pins.

How do you set a LG GSA-H10A DVD Drive as a Slave?


Hi,
on the drive there will be printed or stamped:
MA, SL, CS (maybe in a different order.) Often there is a printed label, and often the re are tiny letters stamped either above or below the jumper pins.
You need to place a jumper in the vertical position over 1 set of pins corresponding to the map above.
ie if you want the drive to be a Master, jumper the vertical set marked (or indicated) as MA.
If you want it to be Slave, jumper the SL set.
If you want the drive to be set depending on where on the IDE ribbon cable is conected, connect the pins marked as CS.
BIOS will then allocate the drive as either a master or slave.

Using Internet Explorer but not Firefox, get the manual here:

http://www.lg.com/uk/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=GSA-H10A&initialTab=warranty&targetPage=support-product-profile#

Note the manual is a dejaVu document which will ask to load a viewer plug-in into Internet Explorer.

Actually, inside that document, there is a drawing indicating that reading from left to right (ie from next to audio connector), the pins are: CS,SL, MA. So for example upper and lower pins at the extreme left are Cable Select, so you would jumper those 2 pins.
Cheers,
Steve

In the past it was recommend that the burner be the secondary master. Do to problems like you mentioned. Try making the DVD the slave and the burner the master. Be sure that when you boot up that in the posting that it see the drives right. If the CMOS/ BIOS is set for fast boot you can press the ese or tab to see the post without changing the CMOS/BIOS on most models.

make sure that when you fitted the drive that the plastic jumper cap on the back of the writer was set to master if used on it's own IDE cable, or set as slave if it is sharing and IDE cable with another drive, you will find the master and slave positions either underneath the unit or above the jumpers at the back.
