Question about Panasonic VDR-D100 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

What other software would you recommend?

I actually have the original IM3 CD but my CD and DVD drives for some reason are not working (another problem, ugh!). I was having problems with IM3 so I uninstalled it and was planning on re-installing it but ran into the "other problem" above. Same as everyone else, I can only find the update (which I think was just for Vista). I run XP, SP2. So what would anyone recommend as an alternative to IM3? I heard someone say Nero, but I think that may be a problem with Panasonic file format or something.

I use nero vision express 3 and it works fine - it converts the panasonic file format for you.

Hello,I have been using LG Secure Disc for 1 year.Now when i insert some DVDs in this it doesn't read them however it plays some original DVDs.Can i myself do something that it starts playing those...


OK, by the information that you provided it appears that the problem you have is with burned DVD copies of original DVD's. There are three possible reasons for this:
1. Your drive just doesn't like burned DVD's. This is the most unlikely of the situations but it does happen. Sometimes a firmware update will resolve that problem and I recommend a firmware update regardless of how your proceed. You didn't provide the model number but this appears to be the firmware update for your model as described. If not, browse LG's site for the exact one.
http://www.lg.com/us/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=GE20LU10&matchedModelCode=1000007624&searchEngineModelCode=GE20LU10&initialTab=documents&targetPage=support-product-profile#
2. Bad/Cheap Media: Cheap media is the most common reason for copies not being read by some DVD drives and stand-alone units. Always use higher quality media for your burns. Verbatim is probably the absolute best and most reliable. I also use Sony and TDK as well. Avoid off-brands like the plague.
3. Burning Software: The second most common cause of burned DVD's not working. LG's I believe come with Power DVD OEM now (I know my Blu-Burner did) and they used to come with Nero. But they use to come with Nero and older versions of Nero were notorious for their burns not being compatible with certain drives (the problem was resolved in later releases) so I recommend for your burns that you use either the OEM of the software that came with your burner or a the latest version of Nero.
Now, if we're talking about DVD's of movies (which I assume that you are because you mentioned that the originals "play" and when talking about data, people don't normally use the word "play.") then that means you're using a keybreaker software to break security features and CSS keys and a separate software to burn (or you're using DVDFab which is notorious for failure rates). That's a problem because often the two different programs like that don't play nice. So here's what I recommend. Go to SlySoft and download the two greatest DVD burning products ever made, AnyDVD and CloneDVD2. They are separate products designed for each other and AnyDVD is the best keybreaker in existence and it's constantly updated and in conjunction with CLoneDVD2 it makes perfect 1:1 copies of your DVD's that will NEVER fail (provided you use decent media) in ANY drive. Both products have a 14 day free trial on them with no personal information required so test-drive them for yourself to find out how great they are.

Hi, i recently purchased a LG dvd burner and dont have a installation cd or software. Is there another way to fix this problem?


Hello, Your computer will automatically install the basic drivers for the burner to view cds but to burn a dvd or music cd or data cd or photo cd you will need software to do so. Windows XP and newer operating systems have a simple burning software using Windows Explorer which will pull the appropriate application automatically. I recommend a program such as Nero which originally comes with most burners. But for a more advance and controlled burning program Roxio has the easiest and most versatile program for about 50.00. Keep in mind if you want to make back-up copies of bought DVD movies or software you will have to have a specific program such as DVDFab. I can send you a copy of the actual software Cd that originally comes with your burner if you need it as I have bought several LG burners which now I have multiple copies of the software with OEM Keys. They have Nero V6.6 which is good for simple disk burning. Also keep in mind when buying blank disk NEVER buy the cheap unknown brands or the cheesy store brand disks as you will waste more disk due to bad coatings than you would if you bought better brands such as Memorex or Sony. Verbatim brand is a good inexpensive disk perfect for learning how a burner works due to the cost being reasonable and if you make a mistake burning the disk its not as bad a monetary loss. After you learn how to use the burner and program and you are ready to make good permanent disks then get an archival type disk with at least a 50 year storage time, (Your local computer store will help you with picking out the right kind, these disks are expensive but if you want to store vital photos or such this is the kind you need). Also A DVD-R is the most versatile disk for most players old and new and a DVD+R if more for burning on the "fly" and for newer expensive players. A CD/DVD±RW means you can reuse a single disk more than once but are very unreliable.

Cd Drive in Mac iBook 4 is malfunctioning. Disc will not mount.


Shut the machine down. Find the original CD or a retail OS X installation DVD. Start the machine up and immediately hold down the option key. You will see a icon of your hard drive. Now insert the CD or DVD. If it immediately spits out, your optical drive needs replacement. If it does not, click on the U-shaped arrow button to rescan the drives. If the CD/DVD does not show up, your optical drive needs replacement. If it does, choose it and boot from it. If this actually works, you may have a software problem -- this is low probability, but possible.
Keep in mind that the CD and DVD read heads are separate. If one of those is malfunctioning, your drive will accept CDs but not DVDs, or vice versa. If you see this behavior, your optical drive needs replacement.

I have an e-machines with a dvd/cd-rom in one that will not work.


i understand that your pc has a single dvd-drive that has the problem that it dos read dvds but not cds...
please give model because this is a rare error.
to check it, get the following disks and the freeware program 'burnatonce' (it is a burning software that accesses the drives on a lower than windows basis )
to check from the hardware side what the problem is:

install burnatonce
run it
open tools/device info
and check if the following disc are really recognized or not

a standard music cd(audio cd)
a computer cd(original ! windows install cd or other install cd)
a self burnt cd containing mp3's (CD-R type, 700MB or800MB)
any other computer cd for pc

an original film dvd
a selfburnt film dvd (DVD-R)
an original computer-data dvd (any PC-Game will do)

if only dvd's work, strange!

get a new drive then.

Have you tried installing the original software did it have one if NOT. Then go to google type LG DRIVE 16 HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-4166B Software. See what google comes up with you will be surprised. The reason why its not burning as you say is because you are using a foreign software. I hate saying this but sometimes hardware can be sentimental like your wife/husband. Goodluck your prolem lies with software not hardware.
