LG GGC-H20L DVD-RAM Burner won't read any type of disks!

My LG GGC-H20L DVD-RAM Burner won't read any type of disks. I installed a sata to ata converter in the motherboard. I don't know if that's what's causing the problem or not. I went to device manager, and it had an ! indicator on it, an i can't figure out how to fix it.

    I installed a new ide ata/atapi controller( sis 5513 1de udma controller). I went to the device manager, and it now shows everything is fine there are no indicators or error codes. It still won't read any disks. Do you have any ideas.

    during startup it show the driver is capable but disabled.

  • havens917 Aug 01, 2008

    it tried to delete the limits. There was'nt any upper limits but i deleted the lower limits. It did'nt help at all. during startup i noticed it said the device was capable but disable do you know what that means?

  • havens917 Aug 01, 2008

    it says the device is working properly.

  • havens917 Aug 01, 2008

    have you ever encountered that problem before, because the unit is brand new. Im thinking i might return it, because ive tried everything and it still doesn't work.

If you have a CD cleaner try running that to that drive because this can be cause by some dirt inside the unit..

Hope that helps....

    What does it say in the status when you look at its properties in device manager?

  • Ekse Aug 01, 2008

    its either the converter or a faulty drive then.. I suppose you could try it on another computer to see the results.

Reinstall the device drivers, after that and it still did not work, right click the item on device manager, go to properties and let us know what is the "device status" or the error code, i sure hope it is not error code: 1

    if you see "!" in the device manager that mean the drivers are not installed. need to get the driver installed 1st and remove the "!" from the device manager then it will work.

> unable to read any CD or DVD. Its detected in device manager but cant ready media.
Can you hear it "spinning" the media? If not, you have a "defective" unit (motors or bearings).
If it spins, but nothing is read, then you have a "defective" unit (dead laser).
Take it back to where you bought it, and get them to test it, to prove that it is "bad", and then for them to replace it.

Normal for most SATA devices.

Perfectly normal.

Play back is jumpy


Hi,
Problem may be with your drive or playback software.

Solutions:

1. Copy your media from your DVD disc to your harddisc and then try playing it (not directly from DVD drive). If media plays well, then there can be problem with your drive.

2. If still play back jumps after copying the DVD to your computer, then the problem might be with your system. Download and install VLC media player from the link.This should fix the proper due to codec and playback.

I hope this is helpful in solving your problem.
Thanks

My ggc-h20l blu-ray drive will not recognise duel layer discs


There is no mention of Dual Layer support in any specifications I can find about this recorder. DL media is a very nice plus, so if it supported it, I imagine it would figure prominently in marketing and on the drive tray, too. All this tends to make me believe that while it offers some nice features, DL media is not one of them.

The LG site turned up little about the drive, but I did find some sales info below:
