Dear All,

Desperately looking for a solution. My DVD Writer has stopped reading DVD’s, not even original Anti Virus CD’s.
Steps taken so far:

  1. Removed Filters- Upper & Lower
  2. Updated Firmware by using LG ODD Software Update
  3. Checked all cables and also bought brand Lens Cleaner and did cleaning. Could hear high definition sound.

I am not sure if it is a Hardware or Software problem. Please help urgently required…

Hi and Welcome!

so your drive doesn’t read any media (CD and DVD) at all?
Please get a bootable CD or DVD (I like Linux Live CDs/DVDs for that job) and see if you can boot your computer from such a disc.
