Hi, I have a peculiar problem, I have a LG DVD-ROM 8080B, I used to read DVD's before after a gap of 3 years, I Inserted a DVD, and it does not work/read. But the main prolem is that it reads CDs but not DVD's, When I insert a DVD, the system gets stuck and it goes on reading. I have checked the drivers, Regional setting . etc. Buy still, it refuses to work. I hope I get a good solution to this peculiar problem.

There is no quick solution for this problem unless you consider buying a new internal drive quick solution. (They are pretty cheap now a days) It really sounds like your DVD lens is no longer working, which would cause no problems with reading of your CD's. Sorry for the bad news, but look on the bright side! You can upgrade to a lightscribe DVD burner!! :D:D (no more sharpies on the DVD/CD's you burn)

Hello, the problem is from the cd you inserted into the dvd rom, so it mean nothing is wrong with your DVD ROM. I think what you can do to make the DVD or CD work some how, is to use a dusting powder to clean it and try again. But thier is nothing wrong with your DVD ROM. Please vote me.

LG DVD-ROM DRN80808. IT SAYS DVD ROM BUT WONT BURN TO DVD.


DVD-ROM means that it reads DVD's not that it burns DVD's. DVD-R,DVD+r, DVD-RW, DVD+RW are what you want to look for when it comes to DVD burners.

My lg dvd writer is not detecting dvd but it is detecting cd...


Hello,

the laser (lens) of the Rom is very weak, that's why it cannot read DVD discs. DVD discs are usually larger that CD's and it takes an active lens to play DVD disc.

So if its still under warranty, you can return it, if not, get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens of your ROM.

Good luck.

try to use with a CD cleaner and do a thorough cleaning - repeat several times. If doesn't help, you need to replace the drive. I experience that same kind of problem with 10 out of 50 computers even if the drive is not used always...some part or mechanism must be deteriorating.

The computer read the driver but it doesnt open


It sounds like Vista has recognized the device as a CD-ROM drive, but NOT as a DVD-ROM drive, and the disk you have inserted is a DVD.

Try getting an updated driver and possibly a new firmware from http://www.lge.com/support/software.jsp

LG GSA-4167B DVD Writer... PC restarts whenever any CD is inserted


What is happening is that the dvdrom firmware or the laser is failing and cannot read the disc; and because the pc is using all the system resources trying to do so; it appears that you cannot get anything to run, making it seem as if the hard drive is faulty also, though not the case. You will need to replace the drive if this is a common occurance, as the life of a dvd drive nowadays dependant on use is aprox 2 years, because as the prices come down so does the quality of the laser required to burn and read discs.
