Summary: Glad it's dead so that I can move on. Not buying an LG product like this any more.

Summary: very much wish i had tried to burn something when it was new, most likely would have failed then, live and learn..
Pros: looked nice. read all discs ( mainly games )

Summary: hopefully i'll never have this problem again on future disk reading-purchases.
Pros: Well it plays DVDs just fine

Pros: Does what it suspose to do/
Cons: No support!!!!!!! See billbo72's review for details.
