Well I would recommend cleaning the dive, making sure you are using the proper media, make sure you are using good software and that your disks aren't already bad before starting.

My DVD drives would not read DVD's. I downloaded Microsoft Fix It Center software and fixed Windows media player. I had corrupt files that would not let my drives read DVD's. After the corrupt files were fixed my drives work just fine.

Hi bcwailing ,

The problem that you have described, indicates that your DVD-RAM is not working properly, perhaps the lens has been damaged or the software that you are using for burning the cd is not functioning properly due to change in settings, I would recommend you to do the following steps and check if it works :-

  1. Make sure that the software that you are using to burn the CD , is working properly ,a good idea would be to uninstall and reinstall the software , I believe this should help you out.
  2. If the above trick does not work ,then you can use your inbuilt windows cd writer to test write a cd , by right clicking the files you want to burn and select the send to option and then select the write these files to cd or selected the rewritable disc option.
  3. If the above method does not work , then you need to get a replacement for your DVD-RAM drive , in case it's under warranty , or you need to buy a new one , if it's damaged out of warranty, there are people who try to ask a third party vendo to chage lens , but it's not assured and could waste your valuable time and money.
Hope this helps...:)

Hello and Welcome to Fixya.

Seems like you're having a software issue that prevents your system to read/run a disc when inside the operating system. I have included the official fix from Microsoft:

DVD Drive Troubleshooting

All you have to do is to click on "Run Now" and follow the on screen prompts - just remember to eject any CD that you may have inside the drive.

Please note that if this does not work, then the drive needs to be replaced. You may contact LG for replacement options in case that happens.

Hope this helps and Thanks for using FixYa.
