Check device manager in control panel under hardware to see if you have a problem with anything (a big yellow check). The most likely casue is that your DVD burning software (not the microsoft programs) did not install properly. Find out the exact info about yours by downloading a freeware program called Belarc Advisor (Googe it), Oddly enough, you don't need drivers for the CD/DVD drives. They aren't even recognized unless you have a non-microsoft burning program. After you find out what burning software you have-- you have to seek a download at the computer manufacturer's website, if it came with the computer, as it may be a special program not related to the burning software if you purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their website for downloads or upgrades,and that should get you going.

Hi Makman,

Please follow the below steps,

  1. Make sure there is no loose connection in the cable of the DVD RAM drive , try changing the slot if that is possible.
  2. Secondly , make sure you have a lens cleaner so that you can clean the lens and then check if things work fine.
  3. If the problem persists , the better option would be to get it checked via a external drive connector and see if it works fine or check it at your friend's PC and see the results,
  4. If then the problem persists, then it's surely an indication that the drive will die soon and will not be able to read anything or even probably be detected.

Hope this helps..:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

My lg dvd writer is not detecting dvd but it is detecting cd...


Hello,

the laser (lens) of the Rom is very weak, that's why it cannot read DVD discs. DVD discs are usually larger that CD's and it takes an active lens to play DVD disc.

So if its still under warranty, you can return it, if not, get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens of your ROM.

Good luck.

My Lite On DVDRW will not recognize any audio cd's...


Hi PhxROcker,

In these drives there are two lasers and two pick-up sensors. Normally in a combined head. One set is used for the DVD and the other is used for the CD. From you description it sounds like the optical sensor for the CD laser has expired! When you place a CD into the drive a small amount of information is read by the drive that identifies the disc type, manufacturer, it's status, capacity etc. If the drive cannot read this then it thinks nothing is present.

If you insert a disc does the LED on the front the the unit flash a few times while it spins the disc. Does it do this repeatedly? If it fails to read the disc does the LED stop blinking and the drive no longer spins the disc? If this is the case then your drive may indeed be faulty.

Sorry I could not be of any further assistance.

Regards,

Spare head 2.
