I have an LG GP08NU40 Ultra Slim Portable super multi drive DVD burner. However, whnever I put in a DVD-R or a DVD+R the unit freezes and I cannot burn anything. I have reinstalled the software 3 times. I...


Hello,

Hmm, it seems that I have had a similar problem with my own dvd burner. Seems that the Laser used for DVD burning is broken or not working properly or you just need a firmware upgrade of your external DVD writer (you did mention reinstalling software, not firmware please clarify which one of the two it was).

OVERALL:
In case the hardware misbehaves - Get a cotton swab soak it a bit in alcohol and try to clean the laser eye-lens inside the drive that reads/writes on the disks. It is usually located when you open up the drive. *NOTE: dont use too much alcohol and let it dry completely before using.


In case there is a software issue - Download the latest firmware for the specific LG multi drive burner or ask more details/user manuals on the product on the official support page HERE. NOTE THAT this product is discontinued.

I have a Zip 250 disk that will not read. When I insert the disk in the external disk drive, it will spin and stop a few times and that's it. When I try to access the disk/drive letter via "My Computer",...


If the disk is unreadable this means that the format or the files extensions on it are not readable in the operation system you use..either are damaged or the disk itself is damaged or it wasn't finalized like it should ...If other disks inserted run ok than the disk it is damaged and it is nothing wrong with the drive itself..When it says to insert a disk this means that it is not seeing the disk at all and it sounds like a drive problem ..but if other disks are ok ..than it is just a damaged disk or in a format unreadable ..beware if it a cd unit ..will not read dvd-es..or if it a dvd kind will not read large dvd-es (dual layer) or blue-ray disks..

Can the lg dvd rewriter gsa-e10n be used as an external info store as well? if so how many gb? thank you!


No dear. External Hard disks, pendrives etc does it for you. A CD/DVDRW plays only CDs & DVDs + burns CDs & DVDs. Please send me your feedback & vote to motivate us & to help us help you.

It can't read or burn any data on any empty disks (CD-Rom/DVD)! but it can read any other written disks like: programs , Movies , audio disks , data disks just when I put a blank or Empty disk it seems...


Some CD burners are either "+" or "-" or both "+ -".

That said you will have to check what type of burner you have. Example, you cannot stick a "+" blank cd into a "-" burner, and visa versa.

However, if your cd burner can read and burn both types, you should be okay.

Cannot back up DVDs on LG Super Multi 20x DVD rewriter


You definitely should call LG--your new gaget isn't working, and it is under warranty. Or try going to their website to see if they have any software upgrades--sounds like you have a bummer, and perhaps a reinstall from their website will do the trick.
