Question about LG GP08NU40 Super Multi Disk drive DVD RW ( R DL) DVDRAM 8x8x5x HiSpeed USB external Burner
Hmm, it seems that I have had a similar problem with my own dvd burner. Seems that the Laser used for DVD burning is broken or not working properly or you just need a firmware upgrade of your external DVD writer (you did mention reinstalling software, not firmware please clarify which one of the two it was).
In case the hardware misbehaves - Get a cotton swab soak it a bit in alcohol and try to clean the laser eye-lens inside the drive that reads/writes on the disks. It is usually located when you open up the drive. *NOTE: dont use too much alcohol and let it dry completely before using.
In case there is a software issue - Download the latest firmware for the specific LG multi drive burner or ask more details/user manuals on the product on the official support page HERE. NOTE THAT this product is discontinued.
