Hi,

You should have enough memory to burn DVD and it eats a lot of time... Also before burning, close all other applications running as to set the computer for burning your DVD's set it to Maximum priority, which means you should not use the computer when the process starts. Disable also your screen saver and use an appropriate DVD-disc, pay attention to the specification of your DVD drive... If it has a DVD+ then use a DVD-CD that has a "+" sign, Don't burn too much DVD so your burner will last longer or won't easily damage... have it rest for awhile before burning again.

Hope this helps... goodluck..

SOURCE: Need Vista driver for external DVD writer of LG model GSA-5169D

There aren't any such drivers.  The drive control protocols are standardized.  Just do Windows Update a few times and make sure the thing's connected when you restart storage subsystems (pretty much a reboot; though installing Nero will of course get things going if you don't love Vista built-in tools.)

LG (GSA-5169D) is not being recognized at all as a drive by Win XP SP3. How can I solve this problem?


Hello,

It may be the operating system has not recognized all the ports, if you operating system is now ok, go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager, and look to bottom of the list to USB Controllers.

right click on them, and Uninstall all controllers and restart pc and see if all the ports are recognized and installed automatically.


Hope this helps,

You got a bad laser in the drive not the laser the reads the laser that writes and this does generally happen when a dvd ram drive goes. Recommend buying a new drive as a replacment laser is upwards of $90 bucks, thanks for using fixya please do accept and rate.

DVD Drive not being recognized as a DVD drive


That is not unusual.
Several of my CD/DVD drives are listed as CD drives.
They still play and write DVDs.
The problem is cosmetic and not worth spending time on.

Now if you are trying to play a DVD movie you are going to need a CODEC (Coder/Decoder).
Windows XP does not include a CODEC to play DVD movies.
I use Intervideo WinDVD.

I hope this helps.

How much RAM needed to burn DVDs?


no, ram should not be the problem... you should first reinstall your os and use nero 6.66... that can happen because of many things but you can this before reinstalling:

make a new account on window xp, delet your existent...
start the system in safe mode... if it allows you to burn the dvd in safe mode your problem is operative system...

in fact if the problem is solved by burning from a new windows account... that should be all...

the problem could be caused by:

bad or low transference IDE cables... you need ATA 66 cables minimum...

problems with burning software ( if you already have nero, uninstall it completely and install a newer version), there are many free trials on the internet.


of course more RAM would be a great help... but the problem isnt that...

Sounds like it may be a software issue. Have you tried using a different burning application? This may help.
