Problem with LG GH22LP20

Hi,

I’m trying to burn CDs with my LG GH22LP20. But it doesn’t work.

It can read perfectly CD and DVD. But I’ve tried to burn with different burning programs… nothing works.

I don’t know alot of those problems, but one of my friends told me it could be the driver that doesn’t work fine.

Thank you

@ ferngb,

Welcome to the Forum.

For troubleshooting suggest installing the ImgBurn (http://www.imgburn.com) software program. After installing the ImgBurn software program attempt to Burn a CD Disk. After using ImgBurn to Burn a CD Disk post the full complete ImgBurn Log File for analyzing.

@ ferngb,

The Ritek Co 97m10s00f CD-RW Media you are attempting to use in some instances has proven to be poor quality problematic Media. Suggest using known proven quality error free Media such as Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim Media which has an excellent track record of consistently producing quality error free results. Also suggest not using CD-RW Media because CD-RW Media is not universally playable in all CD/DVD Devices. Suggest using CD-R Media which is universally playable in all CD/DVD Devices.
