Right click on your DVD drive, go to Properties. In there there should be a tab that says Enable Write CD, make sure the box is checked so that you can write using the drive, click OK or Apply. Then restart your computer and put in a DVD, it should read properly now.

When i put some dvd disk in the drive it does not read but the light in the front just blinks constantly


Is your DVD-writer not recognizing any disk? If it so, the most probable case is that your DVD-writer's Optical Lens has been corrupted. Go for another new DVD-writer or try repairing your DVD-writer.

My LG DVD writer GSA-H55N not detecting CDs and some DVDs


Some DVD/CD drivers have two lasers: one for DVD and the other for CD. Not sure if this is your case but looks like the laser for CD discs is gone. The only way to repair it to replace the pickup mechanism. Anyway, it's hard to diagnose your issue as it may be caused by drivers, dust, software that interferes with the CD/DVD drivers, etc.

My gsa h54n dvd writer cd not reading but dvd


Sounds like the drive either doesn't like the disk you are trying to use or the cd laser has burnt out. Try the disk in another machine if you can, if it works ok then replace the drive.

I am having a LG DVD writer GSA-4167B currently stops reading or writing disks after few runs


as with all writers eventually they fault at the lens and it gets out of line and cannot read discs, you can try the usual thing of checking LG for any firmware updates, but first:- Go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays.
