Is it possible to unfinalse A DVD of a wedding 2 years ago so I can make further copies of original disc

no, the finalizing just means that any non-writer is able to read the disc. You can make copies whether it's finalized or not, select disc copy in your burn program or copy the data to your hard drive

My dvd not writing but read

There can be several reasons for that. Try to use Nero software if you are using LG SUITE. Also the DVD write speed and format has to match that of your writer. Ate you copying another DVD or writing data or edited media such as movie video or music files? Check compliance format.

Can't play some dvd video. Dvd hired in shop is OK, but other recorded dvd and clean dvd is rejected as no dvd or can't read.

The store hired DVD's are molded DVD's and would work well on any player. The DVD's written on a writer should be first written at the slowest speed you can as DVD's written at higher speeds cannot be read by a lot of players. Are you maintaining the same structure of the DVD while writing? Do a DVD to DVD copy if you can and not after copying to Hard Disk. Some software have an option for setting the DVD compatibility such as in NERO Burning Rom DVD high compatibility mode in writer settings.

My lite-on DVD writer is not reading any dvd's as well not writing any DVD's while it is good for CD's..... What is the problem?? How can i correct my DVD writer

Hi Please try and use a different brand of DVD discs. DVD disc quality is sometimes an issue with lite-on drives Also check that you have updated drivers and your media burning software is installed correctly. Again if your using NERO this can be a problem. Try using any other burning software One other thing to try when recording DVDs set the recording speed to lowest Many Thanks Andy

due to dusty environment and excessive use lens gets dusty and then have problems in reading or writing dvd 's and cd's

I am having a LG DVD writer GSA-4167B currently stops reading or writing disks after few runs

as with all writers eventually they fault at the lens and it gets out of line and cannot read discs, you can try the usual thing of checking LG for any firmware updates, but first:- Go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays.

DVD wont recognise disks

All you can do is the usuall checks:- try, go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall. restart the pc and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically. Check for any firmware updates, but i have come accross this a number of times when the drive is about to fail as some have a laser for writing and one for reading and the writing fails on all but cd as it's less for the laser to do. They cannot be repaired and are very inexpensive to replace nowadays.

Problem with burning dvd on imation dual layer dvd burner

You seem to have a related problem, you can't burn cd's and you cannot install windows without an error. Either your hard drive has a bad sector where it keeps trying to write the data or your dvd drive has a reading error. Firstly check your hard drive for errors, right click on your 'c' drive and down to properties, then click on tools tab, then error checking. This can take quite a while, so be patient. Secondly, there have been numerous updates from Nero especially related to Service Pack 2 so download the latest updates from their 'Ahead Nero' website, they are free as you are'nt upgrading just updating. Your ratings are important
