LG GSA-E40L Burned Discs wont play on any other dvd player
I have a brand new gsa-e40l multi dvd rewriter. We have downloaded all software included in package when we purchased. We used lightscribe dvd+r disc to burn a movie onto, which in itself was a complicated enough mission (learning about these things still), but the burned discs wont play on our other dvd players. it says that the disc is incompatiable but on the specs of both player and dvd burner they have the same disc. How can I get the disc to be played on our dvd player attached to the tv.

Try using different media ( non light scribe ) and second try using a program such as nero premium or easy media creator 9/10.Most of my dvd's have been successful with good quality especially with nero ultimate/premium

try going to the LG factory website. You should be able to download the operating system from them for free. Google LG you should be able to find the factory website in this manner. You can also enter the complete model number into google to find what you need.
There isn't a installation CD for the E 40L. I have the same one and Windows has default drivers it will assign to it. The only thing that comes with the burner is bundled DVD burning software and DVD viewing software. The burner is basically Plug and Play (plug it in the usb and Windows will recognize it)
you could try removing the drivers from your device manager by going through contol panel or by right-clicking on My Computer and then on the hardware tab. you would find it under cd/dvd rom drives.Just right click and click on uninstall. Then if you dont have your driver disk you might be able to download it from softpedia.com. If you have installed drivers more than once you might be able to roll-back drivers but the best bet would be to just uninstall and re-install the drivers.
You definitely should call LG--your new gaget isn't working, and it is under warranty. Or try going to their website to see if they have any software upgrades--sounds like you have a bummer, and perhaps a reinstall from their website will do the trick.
Sounds like you may have a firmware issue. I had something similar on a Sony external dvd writer. If you go here: http://uk.lge.com/ click on Download Software in the bottom left, then DVD-ROM(Writer) near the middle, scroll down a bit (maybe also be on the following pages) It's listed as:
New firmware (ver. SE02) for only GSA-E40L(External 18X Super multi DVD Writer)
Run the firmware updater and you should be good to go
