    I last burned a DVD a month ago. Today - after being notified by Nero that The burning was done successfully - the DVD turned to be still empty (nothing was burned onto it). I once again tried to burn the same DVD,with the same results. I put another empty DVD into the LG DVD burner, and it was sensed as having 0 total space and 0 free space,just as happened before and after burning the first DVD. I didn't try with burning the second DVD,I took it out. The LG burner can still play CDs,DVDs.

You changed the dvd from one machine to the other? well, then you'll need to download drivers for that other computer, for the dvd that moved..this is a usual situation. Now, unless we know the computer make and operating system of the second computer, it's not simple to find the driver location(which is most likely on the computer makers website)

I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1300 Laptop with an NEC DVD+-RW ND-6650A CD/DVD reader/writer. Also using Showbiz DVD2 to burn backups of VHS tapes I can create single layer DVDs fine. However, when I try to...


how long is the whole process of burning the dual layer dvd's
your computers hard drive might be getting to hot
try blowing out all of the dust from your laptop computers keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of unforseen problems with a computer and its parts
also you might buy a laptop usb 3 fan cooler pad just to keep things cool/er
you might check the leads ((motherboard to hard drive)) they might be bad/faulty
hope this helps

Make sure the software for this DVD drive is installed into the PC and then your drive is connected to be detected and installed, This will also remove off all previous drives that might cause errors.

I can not burn dvd. I have lg GT20N on Toshiba satellite L500-PSLS3E


Are you able to burn DVDs before using that DVD writer? If yes, then did you make any changes on your computer? and have you tried other blank DVDs?, You can also try to uninstall/reinstall your burning program or try the default burner for windows.

hey, if its reading dvd then it can read cds, possible reason is if the cd that your trying to read is burn in a format such as udf or etc. you have to install udf reader first, try to install software udf reader. try this link http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SOUND-CARD/ hope it work.

My lg dvd writer could not read all dvds (it reads some cds and dvds). What may i do?


This may be caused by bad media, or incompatible formats. There are a variety of media formats for CDs and DVDs. Your reader may not read them all. What model are you running, and what type of media (DVD-R, DVD+R, etc) are you using?

Cannot backup files to a cd/dvd


we may need more details but you can try this for now

1. are you sure you have a cd writer or a dvd writer (writer = burner)--- check the front edge of your cd/dvd unit and look for words like "writer" "burner" or writeable next to the word dvd or compact disc... keep in mind not all cd/dvd writer can write (burn) cd or dvds, some may burn cd but not dvds.

2. is your cd/dvd unit compatible with the media (cd or dvd blank disk) you are trying to use.. depending your cd/dvd especifications your dvd/cd drive is compatible with certain types of cd or dvds that are writeable.

3. is the cd/dvd a writeable cd/dvd and is compatible with your cd/dvd drive? for instance.. if you are using a blank dvd and your cd/dvd drive only burn cd/s and read dvd and cd you won't be able to write to the blank dvd.

4. are you trying to burn a dvd in a corporate computer.?? as a user (not an administrator) of your corporate computer you may not have priviledges that will allow them to burn dvd/cd's even you your drive and your media are compatible.

please post
the error that you get
the brand and model of the computer you're using
the type of media you're using

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
