LG GCC-4120B combo won't play dvds

Since I installed the combo drive windows cna't reognize DVDs. It sees cds and CD-Rs fine. The bios is the latest version 2.02 from the manufacturer and I have have tried both WINDVD and PowerDVD and nothing changes. I have tried putting only the drive on the IDE cable. I have tried it as a slave. All the same result.

SOURCE: My new lg gpo8 will not play DVDS I JUST GET

I researched your issue too as I await your answer.

You have a SOFWARE ISSUE with Cyberlink Powerdvd ver. 8


The error message is a corruption with the software called powerdvd

You need to completely errase your power dvd sofware and reinstall the software.

Update the powerdvd after reinstalltion and update your windows and run virus scan and run your utility software just incase of rogue software impeding your dvd's player progress.

Let me know if this corrects your issue

My drive can not read dvd

Yes lasers that read dvds work on a slightly different frequency so as laser wears over time, especially when burning instead of just reading it effects the ability to read and or write to DVD media and it is why reading and even writing to cds can still be done but not so with dvds. Might be time to replace it.

Dvd drive cant read dvds but can read vcds

First of all, are you trying to read Blu-Ray DVDs? Unless your drive is made for them, it won't be able to. The same may be true if you're trying to read a dual-layer DVD. Not all DVD drives can handle them.

CDs and DVDs need different kinds of laser light to be read, and a combo drive like yours is essentially two drives in one. Sometimes a problem develops in the pickup and it can read one kind of disc and not the other. My experience is that it's usually the DVD function that fails more often. The data on a DVD is much more densely packed and harder to read.

Try making sure the discs you're trying to read are clean. If the problem is affecting all the DVDs you try, replace the drive. New drives for a desktop computer only cost around $20 to $30 and they are easy to change. In a laptop, the drive will be more expensive and maybe hard to find; in that case you may want to consider a USB external burner as a replacement. This is also an option for desktops as well.

My combo drive is not reading CDs but reading DVDs perfectly

a different laser is used to read CDs than is used to read DVDs. The laser for you CD reader has most likely gone out of alignment. It's time for a drive replacement.

Can read cds but not dvds

Try this, but if the problem persists, you need to replace the drive. Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers.
