Question about LG GSA-4081B (048231292481) DVD±RW Burner

1 Answer

Not accepting my DVD-R

I am trying to burn some photos on my LG CD/DVD burner and it keeps rejecting saying that I need to put in a recordable CD which I have done. I'm not sure what the part number for this LG burner is.
Thanks

Is there a setting for DVD or CD? Have you looked at the CD by putting in the slot and going to My computer>choosing the Drive>opening the folder and looking at the content? I'm just suggesting here. You may have just opened a new CD or DVD .
Do you have the manual? Lg does not provide a download for a manual of any kind for your product.

Do you have the software?
You many need to uninstall the burner; unplug it from the wall and computer and do a clean install. (which means turn off every other running program on your system, including your virus/firewall program.) Before you do this you also need to go to the toolbar>tools>internet options> geneneral>delete all cookies and delete them.

When you are finished reinstalling, restart your computer.


I hope this helps. I know this can be so frustrating! thank you for using Fix Ya.

Will not burn a cd anymore, trying to burn a cd of pictures, keeps saying insert a recordable disc, I AM, they are all new ones I put in!


Try the "new" disks in another computer.
Or, try "new" disks made by a different manufacturer.

I suspect that your CD-drive has "died".
So, for less than $50, you can buy a brand-new CD/DVD device for a desktop computer.

Do i need a new dvd rewriter every time i put in a disc it displays ''this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action''if it does accept the disc burning always fails LG...


Do you use any burner program? if not try to install one, if your dvd still read some dvds and others not, try to buy the dvd cleaner cd, could fix the problem, sounds like software issue.

Dvd/cd-rw combo does not record


You may have what is called a combo drive...it can play and burn cds but can only play dvds, not burn them. Look at the face plate on the drive and see what is written on it. If it has the following:
Recordable Drive = CD Burner
DVD = DVD Player
RW & DVD = DVD Burner

If recordable drive and DVD is on the drive but no RW, chances are its a combo drive. Keep us posted.

I have a Sony CRX320E CD/DVD unable to write a DVD


CD-RW drives can only read all CD-rom and CD-RW formats and read DVD formats but cannot write to a DVD, if you want to write a DVDs you need to buy a DVD-RW burner which can burn all CD-formats

Depends what software you are using to burn. Use Nero. then select dvd or cd or whatever. You must state what you are burning onto - you cant create a cd then put a blank dvd into the drive - common sense

LG MODEL NUMBER GSA-H42N 18X SUPERMULTI DVD BURNER NOT ABLE TO WRITE ON SONY DVD-RW DISC


in window under my computer is your DVD writer shown as DVD-RAM drive, if not then re-instal the drivers for your DVD.

If its installed as DVD-RAM then right click the DVD-RAM icon in the my computer and choose properties, under the recording tab select enable recording, try burning a cd using the windows xp based roxio by sending your files to the DVD-ROM.
If it burn a CD this way then all you neec to do is use a different CD burning application software.
