How DO i Fix DVD Writer Works As CD ROM Only. Not Detecting any DVD.


There are 2 assemblies inside it.
One works to read/write CD media.
One works to read/write DVD media.
So, your device is "half-broken".
Replace it.

LG external dvd writer not reading


your initial problem is where you need to think here , why did it suddenly stop working, usually its done, to some extent something's yes can be re-installed like the driver software that runs the device from the pc, but when your pc is telling you its unknown, unfortunately this means, i ask myself it was earlier now it isn't, however if its the case that some how your drivers became corrupt on the system, due to a virus, malware or something, it could be just as simple as finding the correct drivers, double check your drivers just to be sure http://www.pcworld.com/article/2089404/how-to-easily-find-drivers-for-unknown-devices-in-windows.html , in saying this, if its still not working after this , try a format from Disk Management, if its found in their, if not , your drive is gone

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!

Acer extensa 5620 notebook dvd-cd rom doesn't read my dvd. i think i uninstalled driver. how can i find dvd writer driver for my notebook?


go to device manager under System Properties. Locate DVD/CD Drives, expand it, select your drive, right click and then left click on properties, select the General tab and check the state of the device IT SHOULD indicate the device is working properly, if so or if not, select the Driver tab unomstall the driver, reboot, see if Windows will reinstall the driver as it should recognize the device as a new drive. If not return to the device manager and reinstall the driver.

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
