You may need to go into the inside of the computer and unhook the cables and rehook them up again this time try the windows only burner or go to safe mode and have a look there before all others.

You should have enough memory to burn DVD and it eats a lot of time... Also before burning, close all other applications running as to set the computer for burning your DVD's set it to Maximum priority, which means you should not use the computer when the process starts. Disable also your screen saver and use an appropriate DVD-disc, pay attention to the specification of your DVD drive... If it has a DVD+ then use a DVD-CD that has a "+" sign, Don't burn too much DVD so your burner will last longer or won't easily damage... have it rest for awhile before burning again.

Hope this helps... goodluck..

Wont burn dc or dvd

Have you tried installing the original software did it have one if NOT. Then go to google type LG DRIVE 16 HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-4166B Software. See what google comes up with you will be surprised. The reason why its not burning as you say is because you are using a foreign software. I hate saying this but sometimes hardware can be sentimental like your wife/husband. Goodluck your prolem lies with software not hardware.
