Re: DVD R not working properly

Are the DVD's you are trying to play Dual Layer? I was having a problem like that where only some DVD's would play and others my drive would freeze up it baffled the heck out of me untill I read on one of the DVD's that wouldn't work was a Dual Layer. Im guess if your drive isn't dual layer compatible it will not play the movie. Good Luck

Re: DVD R not working properly

So it won't play movies most of the time? Time to replace the drive more than likely. When a laser gets weak, sometimes it wont read the DVD's, but will read regular cd's without problems. Eventually it won't read anything. The laser requires more power to read a dvd than a regular cd. The laser itself it adjustable, doesn't always work, but it's a sure sign that its on its way out. They are cheap to replace these days. :)

I am having trouble burning to a DVD-RW,it does not recognise the disc I have in the drive,it keeps asking for a DVD-R-RW, what is the solution, thanks , Graeme

The LG GCC4522B CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive is NOT a DVD BURNER.
It is a "combo" drive, which means that it can only READ DVD+/- discs and READ/WRITE CD's.
There is no firmware upgrade or any other modification that can convert your combo drive to a DVD burner.

Dvd combo not detect dvd's

Your Lense has some issue.
You can clean your lense with disk cleaner disk.
Pur chase it from nearest shop it is called "Lense cleaner disk"
then put it into combo drive then play it then it clean your lense then check .
If still not access your dvd then if it is in warrenty go to service shop they replaced it.
And if it is not in warrenty then you should need to repair your lense or purchase new lense.

My drive cannot detect dvd disc but can read and write cd

Check device manager in control panel under hardware to see if you have a problem with anything (a big yellow check). The most likely casue is that your DVD burning software (not the microsoft programs) did not install properly. Find out the exact info about yours by downloading a freeware program called Belarc Advisor (Googe it), Oddly enough, you don't need drivers for the CD/DVD drives. They aren't even recognized unless you have a non-microsoft burning program. After you find out what burning software you have-- you have to seek a download at the computer manufacturer's website, if it came with the computer, as it may be a special program not related to the burning software if you purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their website for downloads or upgrades,and that should get you going.
