Question about LG GSA-H55N DVD-RAM Burner

1 Answer

I believe my dvd ram unit LG GSA-H55N, is useing the wrong driver - cdrom.sys. In the My Computer folder it reads CD drive. Sometimes at reboot it reads dvd Ram drive, then changes. It will not read a dvd or burn either.

The cd / dvd driver is generic and usually there is no problem with that. What you can see at an empty drive (e.g. cd, dvd, dvd ram e.t.c.) is a little bit "random" or takes mentioned from the last read media. Anyway have you notice something strange with your drive?

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Thanks and regards

    Since you have a problem, updating the firmware could be the solution. But also another brand of empty dvds, or problems at the recording software could be the problem. Try with the easy ones (another brand of dvds).

    In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Sometimes it doesn't read CD and DVD, often doesn't recognise any CD Or DVD inserted in even its driver. THANKS for helping me!


1. When an optical drive doesn't read or recognize CD/DVD the unit is in need of replacement. Units can be straight out of the box and fail.
check the connection to the device ( cable) and the power to the unit

Iam can not access cdrom from dos iam using lg dvd rewriter


It's been a while but in DOs you need two drivers to acess a CD drive. One is a a generic driver loaded by your autoexec called MSCDEX.EXE. That should look something like

LOADHIGH=X:\MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD001

The next one you will need is the specific driver for the drive. For an LG I think it is gscdrom.sys
So for this you need an entry in your config.sys that looks like the following.

DEVICEHIGH=X:\GSCDROM.SYS /D:MSCD001

X is the drive you are booting from.

http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp

your drive is listed as GSA-H55N
The Latest firmware is version 1.06

If this does not fix the situation the drive could be bad.

My lg GSA-H55N dvd writer is not playing Cds but plays Dvds fine


your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution
thankyou
