This happened to me when I 'lost' my drivers, I downloaded new ones and everything worked fine.
Have you tried to update your drivers?

How to replace the dvd drive with dvd writer ?


You take the securing screw out, you slide the old unit out gently, you disconnect is cables, you buy a PATA dvd writer like http://www.bixnet.com/insldvcodr.html and install it in the opposite way.

I would say you need a new CD/DVD. This one appears to have given up. These days, they are not very expensive. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_3ebe2b55d0d94800b072c8db741693f5(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_0ef9312c3bb74669a836f0f462a4530a(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

MY LG DVD WRITER IS NOT ACCEPTING DVD DISK BUT IS ACCEPTING CD DISK. WHAT SHOULD I DO?


Right click on your DVD drive, go to Properties. In there there should be a tab that says Enable Write CD, make sure the box is checked so that you can write using the drive, click OK or Apply. Then restart your computer and put in a DVD, it should read properly now.

How to replace my DVD drive?


well if you are going to buy one, i would go to www.newegg.com and see what they have. I am also assuming that you are comfortable opening your computer. When you get a new DVD drive open up your computer and look how the old one is connected(i would do that before you buy a new drive too) and if your connects the way i think it does it should have a ribbon (bunch of wires attached together in a line) that have a rectangular thing at the end that connects to the back of your drive and also it will have another set of wires that are multicolored that come from your power thing it will have 4 wires that connect to the back of the DVD drive, make sure both the ribbon and the power cables connect correctly to your new DVD drive. if they do great, you now would only have to take out the old drive and put in the old one(they usually attach to the computer case via screws on the side of the drive) once the old is out and the new is in you just plug in the cables(ribbon and power) and it should work.If the cables arent the same see if you can return it for one that would fit correctly. If you have any questions about my explanation ask (i am new to this and not all that great at giving organized instructions)
