Question about LG (GSA-H42NK) Burner

Can't read Blank CD or DVD even if it R or RW, when disk is inserted my windows explorer could not display all drives, it even hangs. Even my Installers that I used before could not be recognized anymore even my audio CDs  it only hangs my windows explorer whenever  I open it, except for CDs in movie format. BTW, I already cleaned the lens through CD Cleaner and in manual way (Open  the DVD Drive) but still nothing happens.Could anyone give me some remedy.....plz

    Thanks for the updating tip my firmware now is being updated but problem is still the same.

    I can't run anything, It just hangs but drive blinks green (reading) as long as the DISC is within the drive. Unless I eject the disc then everything is back to normal. It just keeps on reading then stops after let say 30 sec. but still can't run any application unless disc is eject.

My hp pavillion dvd drive just hangs up when I try to reinstall windows


Is the disk your using homemade or a factory made disk? Some drives just won't read 100% of the disks inserted into them. Have you tried another installation disk to see if the problem persisits? Are you able to "SEE" the files on the disk using Windows Explorer? Can you copy those files to your hard drive? If yes, then try installing from the hard drive files instead of the disk. What OS are you trying to install?

NEC DVD-RW 16x DL


If you switched to a different brand of DVD's try using the brand you used before. DVD burners are tested with certain brands of DVD's and sometimes the brands that aren't on that list don't work.
