Question about LG GMA-4082N DVD±RW Burner
The problem occoured yesterday when I was trying to read a CD, but after inserting the CD, the light of the drive blinked and nothing happened after 20 seconds, then it tried to read or write ... failed. I tried also all CDs I have, failed. Amazingly, when I was trying any DVDs for reading and writing, it worked perfectly... I thought I might need to reinstall the OS, but this didn't help since the installation is via CD. Anyone has met this problem before or anybody has ideas for this? Thanks!
Gaaaad dang it. same problem here. this is the last toshiba laptop i'm getting, the last 2 out of 4 have had severe problems such as audio jack port failure, vertical bands on the screen...

This is a common problem I have seen over the years it appears that the Laser for the CD, burns out, or the detector for the CD side of things fails..either way it usually results in DVD working 100% BUT the CD side if things is no good... Unfortuanatly it means ya gonna have to get another unit :(
