Question about LG (GDR8164B) Internal DVD Drive
My LG GSA H55L can't read standard dvd's properly,audio is intermitent,video runs erratically like it's running in the wrong speed,but it plays mp3's,cd's,vcd's and dvd 9's with no apparent problems.i've cleaned the lens still the same problem....any suggestions?
It is possible there is a bottle neck in your system stopping it from allowing the dvd to play.
The DVD drive is only one part of it. There is the cable to the motherboard, CPU load, memory load, Video card being used etc.
If the drive is connected to another DVD/CD drive on the same cable, try unplugging it first and see if it improves. Also if it is running on the same cable as a hard drive, your main hard drive in particular, then try to get it onto it's own cable.
Check the software running it is not in software mode using it's particular config section within the program as well. If your video card supports hardware mode for video playback, then that will reduce system power being used by the CPU and the memory systems.
