[qanda]This thread is about the LG GSA-H55N. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi,
I have LG GSA-H55N for over 1 year.
Recently, it cannot read from CD, whenever I inserts CD, My PC shows that no CD inserted.
But for DVD it can read and write successfuly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try in SAFE Mode or try the drive on another computer.

You can try to boot from a cd, windows xp should do the job, or a live cd.

I tried to to boot using Ubuntu Live CD and Windows XP installer CD but it can’t read them. :confused:
But when I use bootable DVD it can boot from the DVD.
Also in Windows safe mode still can’t read CD.

Then the cd part is dead.
Maybe its a last chance to clean it.

OK, I guess it’s time for me to buy another DVD drive :frowning:
Thanks for all your help & support…
