Question about LG GSA-2166D DVD RW Dual Layer Burner
I have a LG GSA-2166D that used to work great. I haven't used it in a while but now it will not recognize a disc when loaded. It will play an audio cd, it plays a DVD and data cd's. But, when I try to use it to burn, it tells me to load a disc when there is already one in it. I am using discs out of the same pack that I used to use. I even went and bought another brand, didn't work. any suggestions? thank you.
I would suggest getting a can of air and blowing it out real well. May take a couple of tries to get it clean. When these types of units set unused for a while, the various sensors get dirty. Sometimes the problem can be cleared up by simply inserting and ejecting the media 8 or 10 times. Let it run up to speed each time.

Try removing the device from device manager, then reboot. Windows should then re-detect the device and re-install the drivers for it. If that doesn't work, try the device on another computer. If it still doesn't work, it's probably defective.
