Check that the writable DVDs you are using are compatible (+/-) with your LG DVD-RAM.
Go to Windows Explorer and check to see if the Sony drive is visible. It may not be connected or the Jumper switch may be set incorrectly.
Check you have drivers installed, take a look in Hardware manager.
Sometimes, it's a little difficult to copy CDs and DVDs when you have more than one burning suite installed - for some reason, they 'just don't get along'. Try uninstalling any suites other than Nero.
Or it may just be that your LG CD-RW drive is just that, and your DVD-RW drive is just that. So it wouldn't be possible to write DVDs on the CD-RW and CDs on the DVD-RW? Though I would assume Nero would detect that and use your hard-drive as temporary storage.
In Nero SmartStart, have you selected the CD or DVD tab to correspond to the project you're burning?

    1. Open the Device Manager.
    2. Go to the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers item.
    3. Open the entry for the IDE Channel that the DVD RW is attached to {either Primary or Secondary.
    4. Click on the Advanced tab.
    5. Change the Transfer Mode for the AW-Q170A drive to "PIO Only". {you have to know if it's device 0/Master or 1/Slave on the channel.
    6. Save settings and reboot.
    7. Try to read a DVD and CD with the drive.
    8. If that works try to write one or both.

    If that doesn't work you will have probably have to flash the drive.
    1. Downloadhttp://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/download/en...
    2. Downloadhttp://binflash.cdfreaks.com/download/1/...
    3. Read the instructions athttp://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/page/en/How...
    4. Unzip the two files, follow the instructions from the link in #3 to flash the drive.
    5. The IDE Channel must be in "PIO Only" mode for the flash to work.
    6. After the flash is complete, reboot and try the drive again.

    Good Luck - It worked for me.

Hi raywalton826
I think you could try using Verbatim or Sony blanks and use DVD Identifier from http://download.cnet.com/DVD-Identifier/3000-2646_4-50766.html , just to make sure you
haven' t been sold crappy stuff .
I also would get in touch with DVDFab to expose my issue with my device and their product .
DVDFab 's guys are extremely client friendly at http://forum.dvdfab.com/forumdisplay.php?f=3

Are you using the same blank cd / dvds are before for burning?

You might want to check LG's support page to make sure you're using the latest drive firmware version.

Here's a link to their page.


There are two GE20 models so make sure you choose the one you own.

Let me know what happens after the above.

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.

LG LS50 DVD/CD-RW DRIVE won't recognize blank dvd-r


Yes does not read DVD-R because if your LS50 Labeled like this (DVD/CD-RW) means that can read only all DVD Disc and cannot write on DVD blank only CD blank.


You can burn only on the blank CD-RW or any blank CD.

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

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
