Question about LG GSA-H55N DVD-RAM Burner
I have an LG super-multi DVD drive in my desktop computer (Win XP) that works fine except it fails to recognize any commercial (ie. bought or rental) DVDs.
Both Explorer and media players (VLC, WMP, PowerDVD) behave exactly the same as if the tray were empty.
This behaviour only occurs with commercial DVDs (I've tried three different ones). Other media, such as Audio CDs, data CDs, data DVDs, blank DVDs, and the original WindowsXP DVD all work properly, so I assume the drivers and laser(s) etc. are okay.
I've done the usual restarts, cleaned out temporary files and the Registry, and have searched the Internet, all without resolving the problem,
Any ideas ('cause I've run out)?
Hello my friend,i can think only 2 things.The first thing is the region code.So right-click My Computer then select Properties,select the Hardware tab,click the Device Manager button and go to DVD/CD-ROM drives,double click to open the tree.Then choose your dvd burner and double click or right click and properties to open the dvd properties.Go to the dvd region code and select the code/country that the dvd supports and click OK.Also you can download a program called region free.The second thing is that your drive supports CD-R, CD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL, DVD-RAM so if the disc is something else then is not supported by your reader/burner.
