Question about LG GSA-2166D DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Won`t play or record

My LG External super multi dvd rewriter gsa-e40n is only a few months old. it used to play and record everything. the other day, i couldn`t access the web with my browser and everything kept locking up on my pc. i unplugged in turn everything that was connected like scanner etc. i found as soon as the LG External super multi dvd rewriter gsa-e40n was disconnected, everything went back to normal. i downloaded and installed latest firmware and it is still the same. this is the worst model i have ever bought in years. any suggestions before i throw it out the window?

    my solution was to take it back to the store where i bought it and replaced it with a completely different model, namely liteon. won`t be buying lg again must be bad if there is a helpline for it as well!

Cannot back up DVDs on LG Super Multi 20x DVD rewriter

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.
