    As i told my lg supermulti dvd writer is able to read & write DVD's BUT NOT able to sense CD's.
    All it started when I was Erasing a Rewritable CD Using Nero. During this erasing process, by mistake I ended a process that was required for erasing ,by using Task Manager .

    I took several steps as follows BUT IT DID NOT WORK:
    1.I reinstalled my windows xp sp 2 professional.
    2. I Cheked the IDE cable & power supply.THEY were good.
    3.I took my DVD writer to my friends house.IT didnot Work winth his PC as well.

    My warranty period is over.
    So please help me .
    Can I get it repaired ?

    I have a LG model GH22PL20 that worked for a while (one week) and stopped reading and never tried it burning. Right now it's recognized by the system but every disk I put on is treated as a blank, no matter if it is CD or DVD.

I have a HT-DT-ST- RW/DVD GCC 4480B it will burn cd-r but it wont even read dvd-r I just want to burn dvd-r but it wont even read blank one


Sorry, but this device is not a DVD-writer.

This device _should_ read (non-blank) DVD media.
If it does not, then the cheapest solution is to spend $40
to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Unable to burn dvd using LG DVD ROM

your DVD Rom drive cannot burn DVDs because it is not a DVD burner, DVD Rom drives are different from DVD writers, if you want to burn DVD you must buy a DVD burner/writer.
