Question about LG GSA 4163B DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner
This burner worked after upgrading the driver after buying it. I have used this to burn CD's & DVD's. But recently I can't burn CD's. I can play CD's & DVD's I haven't tried to burn DVD's since the CD's didn't burn. I've done the scans for virus etc...then rebooted the driver, still having the problem. Checked the wiring. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated of course! Thanks, Steve
Try to burn a DVD -- each "blank" DVD costs about $0.30, so it would be a "worthwhile" experiment.
Try pulling the DVD drive, and trying it in some other computer, just to see if there is a software (including virus) issue on your computer.
Or, spend $40 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
as for your computer hanging after it crashes
try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this will schedule on restart then defragment your hard drive
