LG Burner will not complete

I recently got an LG sata 20x DVD-RAM burner (specs are here) and have gotten 3 for 3 coasters out of it using both nero and alcohol 120%. It hasn't gotten past 8% completion and I've tried lowering the burn speed. I'm using verbatim DVD+R discs so I doubt it's the media. I've left if burning all night and wake up with it still where I last saw it and it will not shut-down without me doing a hard reset. I want to see if I can resolve this before I decide to send it back for a replacement and see if it's just a dud.

If its hanging and won't let you shut down, I don't think its the drive, I think its the driver. I'm not sure if you are running XP or Vista or older. Please check here to see if you are using the correct driver for the drive you have. LG also has pretty good customer support, so I would call them since it is a new drive, they can work you through the problems or confirm if its a bad drive. //D

Hello, the problem is from the cd you inserted into the dvd rom, so it mean nothing is wrong with your DVD ROM. I think what you can do to make the DVD or CD work some how, is to use a dusting powder to clean it and try again. But thier is nothing wrong with your DVD ROM. Please vote me.

LG GH22NS50 22X DVDRW SATA Drive OEM DVD-RAM Burner problem just started recently. opens and closes by itself mainly when i'm using the internet. OS is windows 7. brand new system.

make sure that the dvd burner is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the dvd burner including electical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might be bad/faulty or
your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd burner then plug them back in or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you can you can update driver,roll back driver,or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
hope this helps

It can't read or write blank dvds. Eveything else is allright.

Set your properties to a slower speed for the drive, also try to avoid NERO and programs which add some loss of CPU during the burn, or yet, let the burn happen and not be present on the pc which you are burning from, loss of CACHE and loss of RAM could be the issue. Make sure your PC is scanned for viruses, and spamware which could cause loss of RAM, go into your properties for the burn program and set the speed from BEST to the current speed listed on the drive. Look at the TOP of the drive(if you have access) look for the speed like 8x, 10x, 24x, and set your burn speed from FAST or BEST to the speed listed -1x or -2x. If your drive says 24x, burn at 20x, if your drive says 8x, burn at 6x, this helps the motor, laser, your pc, operate and burn at optimum properties without worry of a crash n burn and having coaster DVD's all over the house...

Good luck!
