I have an issue that started recently. I have an LG CD/DVD reader (older model and don’t remember the specific model, but don’t believe it is relevant here).
The problem is that it will no longer recognize DVD disks (originals or copies). It will read a CD fine, but when I put in a DVD disk, windows explorer and any other programs just says there is no disk.
My other drive that I use to burn disks is fine and is not having any problems with DVDs.
I uninstalled the device, firmware is as current as it will get, but still same issue. I have had the drive for probably 6 or 7 years so it might be time to replace it, but it was working fine up until about a week ago.
Thanks in a advance for any ideas.
