Question about LG GMA-4082N DVD±RW Burner

2 Answers

My GMA-4082N only recognize DVDs, but not CDs

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!

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 :(

Try the following:
  • Use a CD Cleaner (Or try with a soft cloth with a spirit)

My DVD Ram drive is not reading any CD/DVD


The most common reasons for a power calibration error is a dirty lens or bad media. Clean the lens with a short burst of cabbed air or carefully wipe it with a cotton swab.
Good luck.

This would generally happen if the lens is dirty. You get special lens cleaning disks, however, you must read the user's manual before using any such disk. Some brands don't recommend the use of lens cleaning disks.
