Bonjour,
Comme beaucoup, mon Lect/Grav CD-DVD LG GSA 2166D ne reconnaît pus les DVD vierges, gravés dans le commerce ou par moi même, sous Win XP ou Vista.
La mise à jour du firmWare vers 1.01 n'y a rien fait.
Il continue à fonctionner normalement pour les CD.
Avez-vous une solution ?
LG n'a pas de réponse et me suggère de le donner en SAV.
Cordialement.

Can i connect gh 22n to my netbook


Hi,

Yes you can connect the LG GSA DVD RW to your netbook and it should work fine.
Install software like Nero burn or Lightscribe to burn DVDs.

You dont need drivers to connect or install the LG DVD as it is compatible to with netbook.

Thank you for contacting FixYa

LG GSA-2166D doesn't recognize a dvd+r disc


I would suggest getting a can of air and blowing it out real well. May take a couple of tries to get it clean. When these types of units set unused for a while, the various sensors get dirty. Sometimes the problem can be cleared up by simply inserting and ejecting the media 8 or 10 times. Let it run up to speed each time.

I have always been using Nero burn software with my LG GSA-2166D DVD RW. Now I bought Nero Multimedia Suite 10. No any writing process has been successful. I have since yesterday spoiled 10 DVD's....


speed of source data is too slow = the hard disk cannot deliver the data fast enough and the burning process stops; this is a sign of a severely fragmented file system and very charged background processes: defragment your hard disk, stop using other programs when burning a disk and use 8X as a recording speed.
 Track Following Error = the laser head in the burner is no longer capable of following the track it has itself burned - the lens is dirty, clean it.

My LG DVD writer GSA-H55N not detecting CDs and some DVDs


Some DVD/CD drivers have two lasers: one for DVD and the other for CD. Not sure if this is your case but looks like the laser for CD discs is gone. The only way to repair it to replace the pickup mechanism. Anyway, it's hard to diagnose your issue as it may be caused by drivers, dust, software that interferes with the CD/DVD drivers, etc.

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

GSA-2166D recognized by computer but does not recogniz media?


Try removing the device from device manager, then reboot. Windows should then re-detect the device and re-install the drivers for it. If that doesn't work, try the device on another computer. If it still doesn't work, it's probably defective.

Device Won't Recognise Blank CD-R Media or Certain Music CDs.


try and see if you can pull a directory using explorer,, sometimes if you record to the full 80 minutes capacity, the disc will return an error,,,even if you recorded it on that drive...also i know this may sound strange but on the drive tray itself take the mount where the laser is mounted and extend it out to the furthest travel point ,,,gently,,,do not force...load the disc, and see if it is now recognized,,,sometimes it is a timing issue, and this way the tray/laser recalibrates itself....
