Maybe the iris is dirty, get a DVD cleaning kit and run it, a reinstall is unlikely to be the problem.It may also be a faulty Disc you have inserted have you tried others?

My lg (gh22ns30) dvd+rw burner will not read a dvd or dvd rom.


You can go to the control panel, then to device manager, click on disk drives. Make sure you have the right one and then delete it. Restart the computer and it should "find" it and install it, that is if it still works.

My LG driver/burner is not recognizing blank discs. I had this problem before, then it worked again...now it stopped and no amount of retrys has made a difference. Is the burner toast?....Hmmm, not funny.


Hi There,

You need to follow the below steps :-

1 - Make sure that you have your drive's lens cleaned by a lens cleaner , as many a times the discs are not read because of the accumulation of dirt on the lens.

2 - Make sure that you reinstall the drivers so that you have the drive detected properly.

If the above steps do not work , then you either need a replacement of the player or the lens , whichever is affordable.

Hope this helps ..:)

Will not read DVD discs.


It looks like you have a lens problem, DVD and CD use a different error correction and different track format.
A dirty lens can read CD but not DVD.
Tru first using a lens cleaner like this ones:

If it does not work you can try cleaning the lens directly with cotton and isopropyl alcohol, you will need to undo the screws at the button and to take apart the cover. Unplug power when doinfg this.

If it still does not work, since you aready reinstalled the firmware, the lens may be faulty.
You can order the lens pickup from factory and replace it.
