    I have a LG GSA-H42N installed in my computer for a year now, but since I reloaded winxp pro sp2 it is only picking up dvds. Could you guide me in the right path of fixing this problem.

    I am also facing the same problem. I had upgraded the firmware of my DVD writer using auto firmware update after which this problem started. I even gave it to service centre, who told that the lens is damaged.

Hl-dt-st dvd-ram gsa-h55n LG DVD drive not reading DVDs recently


Hello,
It would appear that the problem you are experiencing could be due to 1 of the 2 following items;

1. Re-install the software driver & software that came with the drive.

2. Set the region /Country that the drive will be working in or the language that you understand (USA=Region 1). It should be noted here that this option has a limitation of being changed up to 5 times but once it hits the fifth time the drive will be permanently set to that region and can not be changed anymore for the rest of the drives lifetime!!! The drive will usually work fine once it has been set (the default from the factory is ZERO (NOT SET)) and that may work fine for a while but it should be set to a region and it will understand all previously burnt /movie dvds that have this option set in the data already.

Good Luck!
