The writer is not reading


Hi, you can try a cleaning CD as writers are suseptable to dust; if this does'nt work it is probably a faulty laser and you will need to replace the writer.

My lg dvd writer is not detecting dvd but it is detecting cd...


Hello,

the laser (lens) of the Rom is very weak, that's why it cannot read DVD discs. DVD discs are usually larger that CD's and it takes an active lens to play DVD disc.

So if its still under warranty, you can return it, if not, get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens of your ROM.

Good luck.

I lost the drivers what can i do?


well you really don't need drivers for xp+ systems. it should automatically be recognized. you just have to get cd/dvd burning software like Nero.
according to this site that drive won't be recognized by vista with out a firmware update

Cd is not reading by dvd writer but dvd is running smooth


1.when you write on dvd writer always select low speed to write such as 8x or 16x
2. most of the dvd writer do max speed while wrting the Cd or Dvd
3. due to this reason your cd is not reading
4. you can try a new disk write in slow speed,then check with your cd.

My gsa h54n dvd writer cd not reading but dvd


Sounds like the drive either doesn't like the disk you are trying to use or the cd laser has burnt out. Try the disk in another machine if you can, if it works ok then replace the drive.

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

LG MODEL NUMBER GSA-H42N 18X SUPERMULTI DVD BURNER NOT ABLE TO WRITE ON SONY DVD-RW DISC


in window under my computer is your DVD writer shown as DVD-RAM drive, if not then re-instal the drivers for your DVD.

If its installed as DVD-RAM then right click the DVD-RAM icon in the my computer and choose properties, under the recording tab select enable recording, try burning a cd using the windows xp based roxio by sending your files to the DVD-ROM.
If it burn a CD this way then all you neec to do is use a different CD burning application software.
