Hi, First time poster here.
I just recently purchased this Lg burner, and went to install it. As i was replacing a dvd burner that had broken, i opted to just place it in the same spot on the second IDE channel as a master drive. This installation goes down without a hitch, i boot up windows and the drive is instantly recognised.
Now to the real problem, i go to test out some of my dvd-R’s that i have movies on, i place them in the drive and what happens? Nothing! This then leads me to test some other media just to make sure its not just some of the discs. I throw in a proper movie disc and it works fine. This seems odd to me, but i keep testing, next i throw in a dvd that came with a music album i had purchased recently and Bam! nothing again. I am left scratching my head
I also went to the extent of testing the drive in another computer, and surprisingly the music dvd worked there
So, the only thing the drive reads in my pc is CD’s and Movie DVD’s. It doesnt read any of my previously burnt DVD-R’s and DVD-RW’s. I havent tried to burn a dvd yet with the burner, but everytime i try to access a dvd-r or simliar it tells me there is no disc in the drive. I also downloaded and installed the full k lite codec pack but this didnt help at all.
Hope you guys can help, sorry for the long post
