The lazer lens of your DVD rom was not able to read the disc. Clean the optical lens with soft materials. if same errors after cleaning, Be sure that your system is stable can can cause error on DVD rom if either that is not the case. maybe its time replace your DVD rom.

Most DVD drives are also CD drives, and it sounds like the DVD part is broken, you need to replace the DVD drive, this is done simply by buying a new one, I recommend Newegg.com ( if your unsure search exactly what you already have) then opening your case (tower) and just unplugging old one and plugging new one in, it really is very doable for even a novice.

Remove the drive from your computer, and temporarily connect it to another desktop computer.
If it still does not work, then it's time to responsibly recycle it, and spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Cd/dvd burner will only recognise blank cd discs not blank dvd discs


Find some "older" blank DVD-R, or DVD+R, or DVD-RW disks, and insert them.

If they are recognized, then access LG's web-site,
and look for a downloadable "firmware update" for your model.

The newer firmware adds support for "newer" DVD media.

If all else fails, replace the CD/DVD device.

Disc drive stopped recognizing discs


This is fairly common, it means the actual DVD drive has failed. You will need to call Nintendo. There is a good chance it is still under warranty and they will fix it for free. Their number is 1-800-255-3700

I cannot copy pics or text to dvd


Assuming you have a DVD writer installed and functioning in your computer, check the format of your dvds. If you have a writer that uses dvd-rw it may not recognize dvd+r discs. Your label on the dvd package should have the disc format and your documentation for the writer should say what formats will work in the writer.

Copying data on to a DVD


What type of application are you using? I know that the new nero requires you to choose whether you want to write to dvd or cd before it will work. maybe your application is similar.
