    Many thanks for your trouble but the problem is no more.I re-installed my old CD/DVD player to prove it was the LG writers fault,they played back OK.On replacing the LG the problem vanished and all DVDs now play back as they should on Power DVD.
    Why I dont know but you probably will.
    Thank you once more,its good to know someone cares about problems

Realplayer is ok for small .wav files and for browsing videos on the internet, but for watching a dvd i would use either Power DVD or Windows media player as they have all the supported sound and video codecs Some media players have truoble reading different dvd depending on how they were burned or the file quality.

My LG DVD RW can not play DVD

Are you sure that your ROM can't play the disc or is it that you don't have a program to play the disc? To my knowledge Windows XP didn't come packaged with a DVD Decoder program; except for XP Media Center. There are some FreeWare programs out there that you can download, or you can pay for the program that decodes DVDs so that you can watch them. If your DVD isn't recognizing any type of DVD that you put into the ROM, then try playing a CD\DVD player cleaning disc in it. If that doesn't work, then you will probably have to get another DVD-ROM.

DVD disk

check to see what format your computer burns on.[ex:dvd-r, dvd-rw,dvd-+r,dvd-+rw]different dvd players play certain dvd formats.the format for burning on your computer is probably different from the dvd players that aren't playing the disc.you also must finalize the burned disc.
good luck

None at all - the DVD player has a chipset that is incompatible with that type of disk.

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.

I am having a LG DVD writer GSA-4167B currently stops reading or writing disks after few runs

as with all writers eventually they fault at the lens and it gets out of line and cannot read discs, you can try the usual thing of checking LG for any firmware updates, but first:- Go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays.
