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.

I lost the drivers what can i do?


well you really don't need drivers for xp+ systems. it should automatically be recognized. you just have to get cd/dvd burning software like Nero.
according to this site that drive won't be recognized by vista with out a firmware update

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.

You should not need any kind of third-party drivers if you are using XP or Vista (and possibly older MS software).

LG GSA-H55N Problem


There are 2 seperate lenses for CD's and DVD's, If you have had the drive for a while it is likely to be either 2 things.

1 - possible dust on DVD lens, try a lens cleaning disk..
2 - if 1 didnt work its likely the DVD lens is burnt out and you need to replace the drive..

However before replacing drive try downloading new firmware from LG site and then try once more..

Individual drives - the pioneer at £18.99 isd a great buy!

Super multi dvd writer gsa-h55n


Well, since I received a solution from MAXTRIXKHAN, I just wanted to check back with NCIX.com, and here is a recap of what I did, and what they told me...

After a few tries, I had to contact LG Customer service.
I tried to burn to...

-Maxell CD-R, no problems,
-TDK DVD-RW, no problems,
-Verbatim DVD+R, Computer hangs.

Well, I bought this DVD-Writer to replace my old GSA-4167B, and LG customer service told me that this DVD-Writer does not support the Verbatim DVDs.


So, if you have plenty of Verbatim DVDs, you should forget about this writer.

Supported DVDs...
Maxell, Sony, TDK

Will have to send it back to NCIX

So beware
