There may be 2 lasers... one for cds and one for dvds. Check if it can see dvds. If it can't see either it is toast

SOURCE: Samsung CD writer not detect CD

sounds like the disks you are writing are not coming out well, try burning at a lower speed, I had this problem on mine, the drive is capable of 24X but I get quite a few faulures, writing at 16x works well for me.

How DO i Fix DVD Writer Works As CD ROM Only. Not Detecting any DVD.


There are 2 assemblies inside it.
One works to read/write CD media.
One works to read/write DVD media.
So, your device is "half-broken".
Replace it.

Does not recognize disk


Either:
* the disk you're inserting is not "empty" -- try it on a different computer;
* you should try a different manufacturer of "blank" disks;
* you need to upgrade the "firmware" inside your CD-writer, to recognize more brands of "blank" media;
* the CD-reader is malfunctioning -- when you "cancel" the burn-attempt, and insert a commercially-produced program CD or commercially-produced audio CD, can those disks be properly read?
* you have two CD/DVD devices in your computer, and you're inserting the "blank" disk into the "wrong" device.

Free download for lg dvd drivers gh22np20


I'll recommend you to directly try Driver Detective and let the software have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing LG drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system issues.

Best regards!

My LG DVD writer GSA-H55N not detecting CDs and some DVDs


Some DVD/CD drivers have two lasers: one for DVD and the other for CD. Not sure if this is your case but looks like the laser for CD discs is gone. The only way to repair it to replace the pickup mechanism. Anyway, it's hard to diagnose your issue as it may be caused by drivers, dust, software that interferes with the CD/DVD drivers, etc.

DVD/CDRW drive not recognising any DVD's


The Laser Light Reader is out of adjustmjent or is very dusty. Manufactures will not fix the problem if the product in out of warranty. Your only choice is to consider it a CD-RW reader/writer only or buy a new one.

Sorry.
