This is because the model you mentioned is just a combo drive. It is not a dvd burner. You can watch dvd's with it but not burn them. The way manufacturers word the advertising leads some people to believe that they have a dvd and cd burner. All you have is a cd burner / dvd player. What you want is a dvd-rw / cd-rw drive. Sorry! I hope this helps.

Burner working

What operating system do you have? The drive is fully supported by XP onwards and should be auto detected. You may have to delete the current driver in device manager reboot & Windows should install a compatible driver. (Start > right-click computer > properties > Device Manager > DVD Drives > Highlight faulty drive and delete > reboot)

Also, WinXP does not allow you to burn DVDs unless you have appropriate burning software installed (e.g. Nero)

I have an lg external super multi dvd rewriter (gp08lu10).. i tried burning a 4.7GB DVD-RW but it doesn't work.. the memory capacity shows 0 bytes but i inserted a 4.7GB DVD-RW (also it shows that...

CD/DVD drives will always show 0 bytes if there is no media present.
You will need extra software in order to burn DVD such as Roxio, Nero. I beleive the LG burners show come with software, you will need to install it in, and run it to burn DVDs.
Nero does offer a free version that will burn DVDs

I have just bought an Asus SRD - 08d1 for my wife's laptop and have no idea how to use it. I presume it needs NERO to work

Depends what you want to do with it and what the OS is.

If Windows XP, you can burn to CD using OS but DVD needs Nero or similar to burn. Further, you will need DVD display software such as to watch DVDs.

I think Vista works native (untested) but Windows 7 has basic funtionality built right in.

Hi, My PC shows CD Drive as DVD R, but but it does not burn any, either in windows or by NERO. It says 'no device found' in NERO. Please help.

this problem may be due to the software incompatibilty.

Dvd writer does not burn on raw file system cds

What OS are you using? I doubt it is the burner. I have the same model burner and it burns everything I try to burn just fine. It works on both my XP SP2 installation and the OS X86 Leopard 10.5.5 installation. I have burned video, data and bootable OS DVDs and CDs in both operating systems.

It may just be Nero. You could try Alcohol 120% or Ultra ISO.
