TO DOWNLOAD DRIVERS FOR LG GSA-T40N MULTI DVD
Windows XP/Vista/7 should automatically use its own drivers, so that you can read from CD/DVD disks.
You'll need "extra" software if you want to play a DVD-movie, or if you want to write CD/DVD disks,
e.g., 'PowerDVD' to "play", and Nero Burning to "write".

Hl-dt-st rw/dvd gcc-4240n not working
do it only if u r a professional..
open it up, with the lens assembly there is a small preset, turn it
using a screw driver a little anti-clockwise..clean the lens with clean
cotton using isopropyl alcohol..
if not done, replace the lens assembly..
or else, replace the drive with a standby n see..
i gotta know: is ur drive pata/sata and the device make n model..
assuming that ur drive is pata, n u r a professional n aware of bios/cmos setup utility handling..!!
up ur system cabinet and see if all the data cables n jumper settings
at the back of the drives (master/slave selection)..itz most
however, at the bootup (0.29sec) start pressing
briskly the key to enter cmos utility or bios setup (eg. F1/F2/F10/Del
as applicable)..glance in the standard settings if r detected
individually..change the 'Mode' if m/b is hybrid type(both SATA+PATA) :
Native/Compatible/Enhanced (as applicable)..
see if ur device needs any additional driver or not, if so try downloading..
also try checking itz data cable for loose or faulty..
above all explanation is applicable only if itz not being detected by the m/b or system..(not for reading or writing problem)..
contact ur system admin/vendor....

My gsa-t20n will burn regular disks but will not
Hello there jpd0490.
Here's your geek-steer ...
There are principally two chief causes for this type (calibration) of burn failure:
Inadequate quality media (disks). Verbatim is always a solid choice. However, more important than the brand-name disks are sold under, is the actual manufacturer. You can determine this with the aid of a little software tool called "DVD Identifier". There is an entire sub-culture devoted to tracking the best media available, right down to the manufacturing lot level.
Drive failing. Since you say that it works consistently otherwise, this option is unlikely.
Good luck, and please do post back ...
"Today's the best day of my life ... and NOW you're part of it!"
to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
to provide clarification or feedback,
if you have ANY further questions.

Why?..my computer cannot detect my dvd
Check inside the CPU if it is connected properly.
Due to this problem there are some reason why it can't be detected to system.
#1 Make sure it is primary or slave control in the motherboard.
#2 Check if there is a power or not on DVD Drive or it have then try to eject the layer.
#3 Acquiring the DVD Drive to see it that the JUMPER setting is Master, Slave, Cable Select.
