Pete :

Hi there,

Pete :

Was the disc created at a factory (original disc) or is it a disc that you or someone else has burned at home?

JACUSTOMER-m4uslfif- :

The discs were all initially formatted on the LG and video on the discs were also recorded on the LG.

JACUSTOMER-m4uslfif- :

Now the LG just recognizes all discs as DVD and not recordable

Pete :

What brand and type of discs are you using?
Have you tried using any other brand or type of discs?

JACUSTOMER-m4uslfif- :

Yes I tried other discs. Even in another DVD recorder. This discs are fine.

JACUSTOMER-m4uslfif- :

It is the LG machine that is giving this error.

Pete :

Ok, then the laser is not working correctly.

Pete :

Sometimes it can be due to dust, however I see that you have already used a cleaning disk.

Pete :

You could try blowing some compressed air into the drive to help dislodge any dust that may be on the laser.

Pete :

If that doesn't help, then the laser will need replacing, and it may be more economical to invest in a new recorder instead.
