Question about LG GE20LU10 AUAE10B DVD±RW Burner

1 Answer

I bought an LG external DVD burner model GE20LU10 yesterday. It says on the box that it would work on Mac. Nothing inside on the manual or CD says anything about it working on a Mac. I've called customer support at LG and they told me to call Apple. The model has been discontinued. I need the software and/or whatever to make it work. It does show up mounted on my screen and system profiler gives some information. Can anyone help me?

Install an LG burner on a MAC
if the burner shows as connected or mounted on your screen you just have to install or use your burning utility i.e. nero, sonic, or whatever you have installed on your mac.
when you open the program and have your files already processed and ready to burn, it will ask you what unit you want to use for the task, open the menu and select your burner, click next or continue, the encoding will start, when it finishes the encoding the burner will start.
if you are using a USB connection it should work with your software

Just purchased an LG GP08NU6B DVD burner and it doesn't seem to work with my macbook. I hooked everything up and inserted the software disc into my computer. I was able to open up the folders contained...


Usually its just plug and play on the Mac. The software with the .exe is for Windows. I'd just plug it in via USB and see if it shows up on your regular Mac burning software.

I can play audio CD but CAN NOT PLAY DVD or BURN DVD on LG GE20LU10


Hello, Your computer will automatically install the basic drivers for the burner to view cds but to burn a dvd or music cd or data cd or photo cd you will need software to do so. Windows XP and newer operating systems have a simple burning software using Windows Explorer which will pull the appropriate application automatically. I recommend a program such as Nero which originally comes with most burners. But for a more advance and controlled burning program Roxio has the easiest and most versatile program for about 50.00. Keep in mind if you want to make back-up copies of bought DVD movies or software you will have to have a specific program such as DVDFab. I can send you a copy of the actual software Cd that originally comes with your burner if you need it as I have bought several LG burners which now I have multiple copies of the software with OEM Keys. They have Nero V6.6 which is good for simple disk burning. Also keep in mind when buying blank disk NEVER buy the cheap unknown brands or the cheesy store brand disks as you will waste more disk due to bad coatings than you would if you bought better brands such as Memorex or Sony. Verbatim brand is a good inexpensive disk perfect for learning how a burner works due to the cost being reasonable and if you make a mistake burning the disk its not as bad a monetary loss. After you learn how to use the burner and program and you are ready to make good permanent disks then get an archival type disk with at least a 50 year storage time, (Your local computer store will help you with picking out the right kind, these disks are expensive but if you want to store vital photos or such this is the kind you need). Also A DVD-R is the most versatile disk for most players old and new and a DVD R if more for burning on the "fly" and for newer expensive players. A CD/DVD

Just got an lg ge20 not working on mac


I wish I could tell you that your Mac is compatible with the LG GE20 20X DVD Burner but unfortunately it is not.

Here are the system requirements for this burner
LG GE20 20X DVD Burner Technical Specifications

The CD included is not the only item that is not compatible with the Mac, it is also the DVD burner itself. It is only windows compatible I'm afraid.

However, I do know that the Apple.com online store, has a comparable DVD+RW burner, the
LaCie 22x d2 DVD+RW with LightScribe
which will work with your iMac.

This is a genuine incompatibility issue.

If you had an Intel iMac, there actually is a workaround process where virtual machine software, like VMWare Fusion or Parallels, could be installed, with a version of Windows XP, Vista, or 7, display as a 2nd terminal within a Mac OS X desktop.

What's makes this effective, is that the LG GE20 could work with a windows virtual machine and because software like VMWare for example, can share devices, including optical CD/DVD drives, the Mac could share that drive with the windows virtual machine.

But since you do not have an Intel iMac, unless I am reading the description of your Mac computer(Apple iMAC Mac Notebook) incorrectly, the LaCie burner information, I provided above, would be the best option for your model of iMac.

Again, if I have described your model of Mac incorrectly let me know and I will be glad to assist further.

Regards,

I've just bought one of these for a Mac G4 running


You need to locate a piece of software called Patchburn - but I think that might be difficult now.
This particular vintage mac only worked with the drive that was in it. in order to use a different drive you had to patch the system so that the new drive would be recognised as a burner - that said, it should just work as a player/CD-ROM.
The later Macs didn't have this problem and you could stick a drive in and it would be recognised straight away as a burner. I recently put a LG drive (with lightscribe) into a G5 mac and it worked straight away as a burner/player but I did have to install the lightscribe software.
