DVD burning trouble

Clyde U., Newegg
29 July 2012
  • Summary: Google search found 1.01-A0 firmware (May 25 2012) on firmwarehq.com. Installed it with no problems (was running 1.00). Made 4 DVDs in row using the Staples DVDs with no problems. Try updating the firmware to 1.01 if you run into problems with the drive.
  • Pros: Was a good price for a BD burner 2 years ago. I never burned any BD disks since the media never got very economical ($1/disk) and you had to buy an expensive software package like PowerDirector Ultra to use them.
  • Cons: Tried burning a regular DVD today with it. Made 3 coasters in a row. Made my DVDs on another computer using the same (Staples) blank DVD+Rs so the DVDs appeared to be fine. Win 7 x64 said to check for firmware updates for the drive.

  • Pros: Worked great for one year and two months
  • Cons: Died yesterday. The computer recognizes it but nothing happens when I put in a disc. Good thing I only paid $70 for it.

Works Great for Light Usage

Justin V., Newegg
24 February 2012
  • Summary: Despite other user's reviews, I've had no problems with this drive. It does as it advertised, and was a pretty good deal in my opinion. I use it primarily for Reading, but occasionally have burned a DVD or two. I've never burned a BD with this drive even though it has the ability.
  • Pros: - Quiet - Cheap - Does as advertised
  • Cons: - None

Was a very good drive

Anonymous, Newegg
10 July 2011
  • Summary: There are firmware updates available for this model, I've updated my firmware twice since purchase. One thing to keep in mind about ALL LG "OEM" products, they are considered "LG Commercial" products, as such, you will not find support, drivers, or firmware for these products from the main LG...
  • Pros: Bought this almost a year ago because it was an inexpensive (at the time) Blu-ray burner at about $60 cheaper than the average Blu-ray burner at that time... but times & prices have certainly changed. It worked flawlessly for 11 1/2 months, never had a problem reading or burning any disks, but th...
  • Cons: After my very first Lightscribe burn last week, the drive started having problems. I needed to re-install Windows & could not do it with this drive, I had to pull an old IDE DVD Burner out to reinstall Windows. Though the previous 2 times I installed Windows I used this drive with no problems. It...

preferred c., Newegg
10 May 2011
  • Pros: looks nice, plays dvds, great quality. Blu Ray looks great, great price
  • Cons: Blu Ray played great the first week, but DVDs would not play. Now Blu Ray doesnt work, but DVDs do play. Drivers are non existent. Found out that support for Blu Ray drives is near impossible to find. LG, Lite On, and Microsoft dont even seem to know how to make the drives work. If anyone has any...

blue-ray on the cheap

marky w., Newegg
30 March 2011
  • Summary: really do wish that LG (or others for that matter) would ship with full versions, but, we do have freedom of choice here in America and perhaps if these items remained on the shelf they would firesale them or include real versions of working software.
  • Pros: very pretty once you peel off the tape
  • Cons: the software that comes with this product is TRIAL and will self destruct after a few days/weeks. be prepared to face a rather expensive output to stay on the program.
