It happens if the lens becomes weak. I advice you get an external DVD-RW.
I hope you find this solution is helpful.

What dose this do


DVD burner or writer is a device where you can write a blank cd or dvd for data,music and videos format and also you can play or read your favorite cd or dvd mp3, audio cd and videos format. For burning you must have nero, alcohol and other burning application. In windows xp, vista and 7 are already included, simply drag your data or files you want to burn to you cdrom drive with blank cd or dvd.Then there is a button burn, click that button to write the files onto your cd or dvd. Have a nice day!

Are you sure that you have the file type associated in your Windows operating system to a Music player like Windows Media or iTunes? This may be the most common reason that music CDs won't play.

Hi,
on blank cd's or dvd is nothing to read, With burner software like Nero you can write data or music or other content (burning it) on the cd/dvd. Does this answer your question?

Won't recognize blank dvd


Chek wtat is written on front panel
If it DVD-RW it can record only DVD-R blank, if it + so only +R
or DVD-RAM. If it is DVD +/- RW or RAM it can record any disk.
Also chek the speed for you DVD and disk you using.
If you dvd maximum speed for recording is for example 2.7, 4, 8 you should use only DVD with max speed 2.7, 4, 8 or 1-8, 1-16 etc. So they should be labeled the same as you DVD
Good Luck

LG LS50 DVD/CD-RW DRIVE won't recognize blank dvd-r


Yes does not read DVD-R because if your LS50 Labeled like this (DVD/CD-RW) means that can read only all DVD Disc and cannot write on DVD blank only CD blank.


You can burn only on the blank CD-RW or any blank CD.
