LG GSA-5169D DVD w/ Honestech One Touch on Win XP SP3

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.

I have lost my product key for my LG one touch DVD (model GSA 5169D ) honestech program and I can not operate it now. Is it possible to get Product Key ? Thank you very much Yosi Gurion


http://download.cnet.com/keyfinder-thing/3000-2094_4-10491989.html Finding lost application install keys is quick and simple with this handy executable, a complete rewrite of a well-received earlier version. Keyfinder Thing's simple, easy-to-understand interface has Wizard-like efficiency. This application quickly scans your system registry for 90 supported software titles and displays product names and icons in the result window. Single-button clicks copy all keys to either a text or HTML file.

While an earlier version found software keys in addition to the ones supported, this version covered only 90 specified titles. Network searches are no longer available, but program search speed has greatly improved. All users can easily use and benefit from this freeware, but network administrators will find it an important part of their toolbox

if this fails there are many freeware keyfinders on the internet
after you have recovered your key just uninstall the program if you no longer need it
hope it helps you

http://download.cnet.com/product-key-finder/3000-2094_4-10694022.html Product Key Finder is a single function utility that executes in a GUI, but displays a Command window result. You merely double-click it to display the 25 character Microsoft Windows Product Key.

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,

Lg dvd burner gsa-1420b doesn't recognize it as a writer


Hi,
This may be a device driver problem.
uninstall then re-install your CD/DVD Writing Program. i,e Nero-Roxio et,c. it has to have The ATAPI device driver installed to function Correctly.

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.

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.)
