Look at the "back" of the device.
You'll see 40 pins (2 rows of 20 pins), 6 pins (2 rows of 3 pins), and 1 row of 4 pins.

The 40-pins is the "data" connection -- note that there is a "notch" centered in the plastic above the pins -- to ensure that the ribbon-cable can only be connected the _correct_ way.

The 4-pins is the "power" connection, note that 2 corners are beveled, again to ensure that the power-connector only fits in the _correct_ way.

The 6-pins are labelled: MA(ster) & SL(ave) & C(able)S(elect).
Move the small jumper to the 2 'CS' pins.

With the computer turned-off, connect the "data" and "power" cables.

Windows should "detect" this "new hardware", without needing a CD, and fully install the device.

SOURCE: I have an external teac

I think that Teac DV-28e Is a CD/DVD-ROM only, and will not burn discs. Teac DW-28e is a CD RW/ DVD ROM unit, and will thus play and burn CDs, but will only play DVDs. Check your model numbers to confirm, and then consider exchanging units if you need to burn CDs.

Won't recongise DVD+R dual layer 8.5Gb TDK DVDs.


Most of the drives are not capable of recognising specific color medias (specifically purple), try using perl, silver media for dual layer disc

It will not load certain dvd discs


Below is a list of discs that should or should not be used with the DVD recorders.
DVD-R
4x can be used
8x will result in a disc error.
DVD-RW
2x can be used
4x will result in a disc error.
The following discs have been tested and are proven to be compatible with our DVD recorders.
MEMOREX DVD-R
FUJIFILM DVD-R
FUJIFILM DVD-RW
IMATION DVD-RW
IMATION DVD-R 2.0
TDK DVD-RW 2X
TDK DVD-R 2X
The following are brands of discs we DO NOT recommend:
MEMOREX DVD-RW
SONY DVD-RW
SONY DVD-R
TDK DVD-RW 4x
TDK DVD-R 4x

Please be aware that a free software upgrade is now available to customers. This upgrade will enable your unit to recognize the (DVD-R 8x) discs. To obtain a copy, please call 1-800-242-7158. Customer service by phone is available 7 days a week 6:00am to 9:00pm pacific time.

In order to receive the upgrade we need to know what firmware version your unit requires. First you need to access the DVD recorders service mode. Turn on the DVD Recorder and the Television, make sure the unit is on the DVD side. You may access the service mode by pressing the CMSKIP button on the remote control. Once you press CMSKIP you must press the numbers 1,2,3. You must do this quickly so it may take a couple tries. The model name will appear on the screen followed by Firmware Version. I need to know the serial number next to FE:
Press the RETURN button to exit screen.

Compatible dvd-r discs?


I've never had much luck with DVD-R's but the DVD+R's that I've used work just fine; Verbatim and TDK have both worked.

Cannot remove protection to record


Have you tried playing the tapes in an 'older' player' that doesn't recognise the 'CSS' and then into the Panasonic DMRES 30V through the 'input' side? That should work.

DVD disc recording


Certain disc only work in certain recorders - I know this sound weird but you must find the disc that is compatible with the recorder that you are using. If the TDK discs is working continue to use the TDK discs. Even though the format and the specifications are the same on both disc, the readers does not read all disc.

BURNING DL DISC WITH NERO


G'Day,

I have the same issue with the LG GSA-H20L and the LG GSA-42N, but mine was with TDK DVDs.

I contacted LG Support and they told me that TDK disks are not recommended for use with their DVD Burners.

I asked them if there were any others they did not reccomend and they said no.

Going through my cupboard, I found Memorex Printable DVD-Rs that will burn OK.

I also tried Sony DVD+R and a generic brand, but they will not burn either.

I also found that these LG drives do not recognise Laser CD-R.

In short, for burning, try either Memorex, LG and some others, but don't try TDK, Sony or Laser.

Good Luck
