This sounds like your jumper setting is not right on the drive. If you have 2 DVD drives installed, make sure 1 is set at master and the other is set at slave.

In my desktop computer the LG CD/DVD writer/reader is showing empty though the CD is filled with data..hat could be the reason, i tried by re-installing the drivers but no success...


Not knowing the operating system, In windows 7 and 8 sometimes it forgets the cd format. Then you need to go to the device manager and remove the drive and let windows re-detect it.

Erase dvd--rw


Hello sir !
Go to the my computer right click on the the dvd drive then there's an option to erase if it's DVD-RW click on that option, it will erase it
Another method is to install a nero cd/dvd burner into your computer then instert DVD-RW into your DVD ROM then open the program Nero and erase the DVD using that.

Thank you

I've just bought one of these for a Mac G4 running


You need to locate a piece of software called Patchburn - but I think that might be difficult now.
This particular vintage mac only worked with the drive that was in it. in order to use a different drive you had to patch the system so that the new drive would be recognised as a burner - that said, it should just work as a player/CD-ROM.
The later Macs didn't have this problem and you could stick a drive in and it would be recognised straight away as a burner. I recently put a LG drive (with lightscribe) into a G5 mac and it worked straight away as a burner/player but I did have to install the lightscribe software.

I need to install my HL-DT-ST-RW/DVD GCC-4522B driver because my dvd disc not run. THANKS.


In Summary; I have a Dell Dimension 8100 desktop computer. I only have a CD-ROM drive. The CD drive broke, so I bought and installed a CD/RW- DVD Combo Drive (Model # GCC-4522B). I need to know where to set the jumper on the back. The options are CS, SL, or MA. Currently is set to SL but it does not work. I do not get the drive symbol to display under My Computer icon. I thought it was jut plug in and play. Need help if there is something else I need to do. Any response is very much aprreciated. Thank You!

Just bought a lacie d2 dvd +/- rw, store bought dvd movies don't mount and therefore don't play


Disconnect the Lacie dvd drive, then reconnect it and open "system profiler" to see if the drive is now recognized under "firewire" or USB depending on your connection. If that doesn't work disconnect all peripherals and turn off your mac for 5 minutes. Start reconnecting your devices one by one.
