LG GH24 Rattles + Disk Quality Grayed out

#1

I just purchased new [U]LG GH24 /U DVD Writer and everything is working great. I just have one concern tht when i removed the drive from the box and was inspecting it, i notice “loose screw moving around kind of noise inside” when i shake my drive a little… So shall i be worried abt future complications?

2] Nero Disk Quality “Start option” is grayed out. Rest all functions are working. (Using Nero DiscSpeed 5)

Hello, sorry for my ultrashort reply.
I have had several LG drives in the past and if I remember correctly, some of them (LG GH22NS, GCE-8523B, GSA-H12L) did rattle when I shook them.
They did work (and GCE-8523B does still work even after 8 years) flawlessly despite that, though.
Also, there were some other manufacturers’ “rattling” drives that I’ve got my hands on - older LiteOn and Asus DVDR burners. I think it’s a quite common “feature”. :bigsmile:

Thanx Pepst for detailed answer! I am at ease now tht i dont have to do all tht replacement hassles & now i can enjoy my new burner.

Hi,

being a moderator here does not necessarily mean huge expertise with certain stuff.

As for the “rattling”: this is normally intended by the drive’s manufacturer in order to maintain optimal disc rotation and balance. Some manufacturers like Liteon even had a marketing buzzword for that.
