Well..did you get a new driver disk? If not, go to Toshiba.com and get one online, and then install it.

Im having trouble with my drives it wont read the cd or burn the cd or dvd


Hello there,

If your LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe does not read disc, burn cds or dvd, then it means there is a problem with the lens of the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe.

You will have to replace the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe or have the lens replaced.

Be sure not to use the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive w/LightScribe to watch movies as that weakens the lens easily.

Hope this helped.
Goodluck

I have a Brand New LG Portable Super Multi Drive DVD RW. Although I can get a Visual when I play DVD movies, I am unable to get an Audio. Please advise.


One of 2 things

a) Check your PC sound settings, make sure your CD/DVD drive O/P is included.

b) Your media player doesn't have the right codecs. Go to filehippo.com download and install VLC media player. Should work a treat.

I replaced an old CD/DVD R/W drive with an LG GH22N550 22X Internal SATA Super Multi DVD drive. The old drive was an IDE, I believe. After installing the new drive, the system wouldn't boot. It kept...


Look on the back of the old drive to check the jumper settings (master/slave) and set the new drive exactly the same. If that doesn't work, you may have to connect the drive to a different IDE connection on the motherboard... Also, check the BIOS settings for your IDE drives and make sure the one for the CD is set to AUTO or CD-ROM.

DRIVER FOR LG MULTI SUPER DVD BLACK


Start-Control pannel-System-Hardware tab(I don't know how it appears in english, bcause I have a Spanish O.S)

Then you will se a list of your hardware.

Look for DVD-CD drives and double clik to see if a driver is installed and corresponds with your hardware.

You have few possibilities:

1) an exclamation mark appears near the drive: this means that the driver was not properly installed: In that case double click and sear for a new driver

2) You have a driver that doesn't correspond to your harware:
Do the same as 1)

2) The drive installed is the correct one: The problem can be a hardware one.Note the exact name of the driver and the version and go to LG site and look for a new one

3) No DVD/CD drive appears in the list: Go to Start_control pannel_ add hardware and let windows search for your DVD and install the apropiate driver.Stay connected to Internet to let the system search on MS .

Hope that will help
