LG GH22 LS50 (Sata Dvd Writer) Will not write dvd discs

LG GH22 LS50 (Sata Dvd Writer)

Installed this writer in my Pc (Running Windows 7) It seems to read discs fine, but will not write files to dvd discs. Took the drive out of my pc and installed it to my wifes PC running Windows XP and It wrote the disc fine.

Tried different Sata sockets on my pc and different Dvd media, same problem every time. any help would be much appreciated.

P.S Updated Firmware and its still the same.

    Both pc are using Nero (Wifes is V6, Mine V9 also tried a trial version of 10 to see if that made any difference)
    No data is being written to the dvd while trying on my pc, but thanks for the Coaster saving idea :o))

    I had tried the LG Power tool which came with the writer but same results, although i did use said software for updating the firmware version of the drive to V. TL02

    I have installed the FFDSHOW codec, but unfortunally... still the same results from nero.... its the same for .ISO's, Random files to be burnt (MP3), etc etc etc....

    Could not perform Write
    PMA update failure
    E: HL-DT-ST-DVDRAM GH22LS50
    Could not perform end of Disc-at-once
    Burn process failed at 2x

    Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

What software do u use to write DVDs on both PCs...
if they are different then that may be the issue....
dont spoil the DVDs....
try DVD RW disks...that way you can erase them later...
i too have the same DVD writer, not had any issue in either XP or Win7....i have dual boot and have made many movie DVDs using both OS...i use Nero and Power2Go of LG(the install disk that came with the LG DVD writer has this great software...."LG Power tool")
try this tool...it should work...

the inbuilt DVD creator in Win7 has some issues with DVD creation....due to non compatibility of graphics card and display drivers (WDDM)....+ you may not have the correct codec required to burn DVDs.....
get the FFDSHOW codec from google.... and install it...shutdown and restart and then try...

Hi there,
If you oare using a windows based operating system.
On your keyboard hold the windows logo and press the letter R
When the run box comes up type in regedit
go to this key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
delete the upper and lower filters
Reset the computer and check if the cd/dvd drive will now work.
Hope this helps!

Hi
You installed windows 7 with the same drive right? After logging in insert the same disc and check whether it is reading or not.If it is not reading check the data cable,(clean and reinsert).
I think the problem is with the drive. When drives gets old it can only read few discs. Writing will fail too. Get a new new drive, nowadays price appr below 1k.( SATA).

Hi,

The issue seems not related to the LG Burners, possible the disc in which you are trying to burn may be issue.

Can you try with the different brand disk.

PC Does not boot up with LG SATA DVD Writer


Did you try to move the small jumper next to the connector on the back of the DVD writer.
Then try to choose different places to connect your DVD on the motherboard.
Check if you have the right driver or reinstall it.

Hope its help, don't forget to rate.

LG GH22 dvd writer - not reading


I had the same problem with the GH22 Internal drive on vista. Assuming this is the only cd drive you have, just go to the device manager and remove/uninstall anything under "DVD/CD Rom Drives" then restart. It should get picked up and recognized properly. It took a couple of restarts to work. For refrence, I only have the LG GH22NP20 installed, what appears in device manager are 2 items... (1)HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22NP20 SCSI CdRom Device... (2) KU1051Q EAG855E SCSI CdRom Device... Incase you have multiple cd drives, this should help tell em appart. Enjoy. IDK399
