Question about LG (GSA-5169D) DVD RW Dual Layer Burner
I have an LG GSA-5169D DVD w/ Honestech One Touch on Win XP SP3.
It will read a data CD and play a DVD movie but will not recognize a blank DVD. Nero does not recognize it as a dvd burner.
In 'My Computer' the drive is shown as DVD-RAM Drive (E:) until I put in a blank DVD. It then changes to say CD Drive (E:).
When I try to access it I get an error - "E:\ is not accessible - Incorrect function."
The "One Touch" button on the front of the drive is nonfunctional as well.
I have uninstalled, reinstalled, tried different brand and type of media with no change in function.
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.
