Hi I am Vortash firstly the site you can download all LG software from is listed at the end of this message .
One of the main problems anengineer sees with dvd machines is not reading ?. and 50% of the time there is nothing more wrong with the machine than it needs a good clean of the laser Lens . so before you do anything else invest in a good dvd/cd cleaner and put it in your machine . not only will it give you less trouble it will prolong the life of the machine also .
The problem you seem to be having is that maybe your using DVD's of the wrong region most players can only read one type depending on where you purchased the machine I:e Europe, USA , Asia . etc : 1 for the USA and 2 For europe 5 Kenya and so on so check the label first . I hope this helps with your problem ... Regards Vortash

I have an " LG DVD 5183" player which no longer plays most disks. Any suggestions?


Hi, the only real thing you can try yourself is a cd lense cleaning kit, you can buy these from most computer hardware stores and some discount shops, this may solve your problem as it will clean the laser lense and should get it working again.

if how ever after doing the above it still dont work then this points to the fact that the laser is on its way out and if this is the case then the chances are it would be cheaper to buy a new player.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated answers, thanks

My LG CD-RW/DVD drive Model:GCC-H23N cannot read any kind of disc please help me send me answer at my e-mail at or_vince@live.com


Make sure (ide) if the jumpers are set correctly ie master - slave - cable select
Some time you need the BIOS to detect the drive and it's position like secondary drive O set for AUTO
Then if that is good, go to LG's site and look for the latest Firmware for your model under support-download and drivers
And finally is it compatible with Vista..or what Operating System you are using.
And finally get a laser lens cleaner and clean the player's lens. It looks like a cd with an eyelashes glue on it. kennsington makes them and several other companies.
Barring all that a combo drive like your can be replace for $15-$20 pending where you shop.
I do like the LG brand...don't like Lite-On but hey that is just me.
hope this helps...please leave a rating. thanks

LG DVD RW not reading dvd


If the problem is only with reading the DVD's seems you do not have a dvd decoder installed or an appropriate dvd player. Download vlcplayer it plays most of the file formats and has many codecs integrated within.
Click here to download
or go to:
http://www.videolan.org/

  • Also delete the following key from registry editor:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlClass{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Note: clisk START>RUN>type"REGEDIT" and press enter.

LG and HP in known for thier reading laser to become trashed or crash. Once this happens, you can only replace the drive.

Sorry for the bad new but I faught an HP drive for months before I just bought a new one.

LG GSA.4040B doesn't recognize DVD's anymore , only CDs working


sounds simple
in the world the cd dvd creaters are using a new format of cd dvd making old players obsolite due to piracy these new cd dvds are becoming a pain a way they make you go out and purchase new players with updated formats

i found this out a few months ago when i bought a dvd from store it wouldnt work in a 7 month old dvd player so i got to thinking about it put in older cd that worked did a little investigating i want to know why new cd dvds werent working low and behold i found a tech site for the cd dvd compile build formats there it was piracy is getting knocked out by new cd dvd format this is so you cant copy direct to or from disks

if your older disks worked in drive and older disks burned in drive 9 out of 10 the problem lies with in new disks and what i explained up top
i hope this help you in your quest

The computer read the driver but it doesnt open


It sounds like Vista has recognized the device as a CD-ROM drive, but NOT as a DVD-ROM drive, and the disk you have inserted is a DVD.

Try getting an updated driver and possibly a new firmware from http://www.lge.com/support/software.jsp

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE


When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
