Sounds like the DVD ROM drive itself is faulty. Not worth repairing, will work out cheaper to purchase a new DVD drive.

My LG combo drive HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-H23N does not read dvd but reads cd


Try to open the device, and clean with some medicinal alcohol the lens of the drive, and clean the dust from it.
Assemble it and see if it works. In this cases there is a high opportunity for the client to make an upgrade and buy a DVD-RW

Dvd rom drive does not work


Hi,
Try to open control panel then click add hardware. If you have entered the dialogue box, answer whatever is asked according to what you're searching. Then click whatever hardware your PC would like to detect then click finshed. After the detection, close the wizard box then try to open your DVD ROM and try it.

Hope this answers your question.

My E drive is not working. how can i fix it.


Have you tried cleaning the laser assembly? If your OS still sees the drive then it may just be having trouble reading.
Try this

First try to boot from your xp cd. If it fails to boot from the cd then your drive is screwed. If it does boot from the XP cd then ONLY try the following


Click Start.
Click Run.
The Run dialogue box appears.
Type devmgmt.msc in the run dialogue box and click OK.
Click on the plus sign next to DVD/CD ROM Drives.
Locate your DVD/CD ROM drive in the list of devices.
Verify the type of drive in your computer and that the type of media you are using is supported by the drive. Use the table below to determine the supported media types.
DVD+/-RW Read CD or DVD media, write DVD+RW, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD-R, CD-R, CD-RW media.
CD-RW/DVD Combination Drive To read CD or DVD media, and write CD media.
DVD-ROM Drive To read CD or DVD media.
CD-RW Drive To read and write CD media.
CD-ROM DRIVE To read CD media.

Try cd drive now before trying the next step


Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, and click Manage.
The Computer Management window appears.
Click Device Manager.
Click the (+) plus IDE controllers section.
Double-click the appropriate IDE channel.
The IDE Channel Properties window appears.
Under the Advanced Settings tab, verify that the transfer mode is set to DMA if available.
Click the OK button to save the change. At this point, you may need to restart for the change to become active.

Check to see if the drive will work in safe mode. I it still does not work Update the firmware for the optical drive.
Try cd drive now before trying the next step

Click the Start button, click Run.
In the Open box, type Regedit, and then click OK.
Click the plus sign (+) next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
When you click the plus sign (+) next to a folder, it will expand displaying the folders it contains in the left-hand pane of the Registry Editor. When a folder is highlighted, its contents will be displayed in the right-hand pane of the Registry Editor.

Click the plus sign (+) next to SYSTEM.
Click the plus sign (+) next to CurrentControlSet.
Click the plus sign (+) next to Control.
Click the plus sign (+) next to Class.
Click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
On the right side of the window, click UpperFilters.
Click Edit on the menu bar.
Click Delete, and then click OK.
On the right side of the window, click LowerFilters.
Click Edit on the menu bar.
Click Delete, and then click OK.
Click File, and then click Exit.
Restart the computer normally.

If all these steps fail then you will need to replace your drive.
Thank you.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

Unable to burn dvd using LG DVD ROM


your DVD Rom drive cannot burn DVDs because it is not a DVD burner, DVD Rom drives are different from DVD writers, if you want to burn DVD you must buy a DVD burner/writer.

The computer read the driver but it doesnt open


It sounds like Vista has recognized the device as a CD-ROM drive, but NOT as a DVD-ROM drive, and the disk you have inserted is a DVD.

Try getting an updated driver and possibly a new firmware from http://www.lge.com/support/software.jsp

Burning a CD


oopsy go to my computer and RIGHT ClICK on it , then choose propertys. Go to hardware then choose Device Manager.Under DVD CD rom drives open the "+" in the box and then right click on your name, "update driver" should appear. Try this first, if it cannot find a recent driver then write down the manufacture and version of the driver. go to there website and see if they have one. you can also try driverguide.com
