re GP10 portable super multi drive

Step 1- downloaded audio from cassette tape recorder to the C drive in my Windows XP computer. Step 2- dragged audio file to LG (GP10) burning tool. Step 3 - burned audio file to disk. Step 4 - heard audio on disk. Problem - inserted disk into different CD player and it did not play music-could not hear music. Please help me.

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this disc. It appears that the file was copied properly. However, it is likely that the file format used is not compatible with your standard CD player. Check your file types, and the recording process. Many standard CD players will require a .CDA file format. If you have additional questions about this process, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Is this unit capable of reading and writing CDText

I use this unit to master CDs and I need to know if it will write CD Text as well as read it.
Asked by: stvnblain
This drive is capable of writing most any data to a disc, as long as the software on the computer can provide it, properly encoded.

I purchased a GH22LP21 and would like to know what is best to use for recording music, a CD or a DVD? Also, what are the best discs to use? Thanks

Asked by: Anonymous
We appreciate your interest in the capabilities of the recording device. Both media type are equally capable of recording your music files. The question comes down to your expectation of the recordings. The quality will be equivalent, depending upon the Writing Software being used. The DVD will be capable of adding more audio files to the final recording. The CD will be more likely to play on more devices. It is your preference.

Incompatible with *nix like CENTOS?

I notice there are no drivers for LG DVD reader/burners on non-Microsoft operating systems. Is this correct? If not, where are the *nix drivers?

I apologize, but we have no indication of any sort of LG BORN. This drive does not appear as a printer. When installing the unit, you will also need to install the LIGHTSCRIBE operational software, which can be obtained from

Why fan in my device isn't working? And should it work all the time or when it gets hot?

We regret the misinformation provided by this software. It appears that the automatic firmware update software is flagging an update that is available for a different model. There is currently no update available for your drive. If you wish, you may remove this software from your computer, using the ADD/REMOVE PROGRAM from the Control Panel of your Operating System.

Why can't I download the software for my new GH24 DVD Rewriter?

I just installed a GH24 Super Multi DVD Rewriter in my Dell Dimension (tower) with Windows XP Home Edition. When I run the install disc (in the already existing DVD drive) the main menu comes up fine and I hit "start" and it starts down-loading the install execute but it soon gives me an abort message that says : "this software can only be installed with a LG (HLDS) device. The setup will abort". When I try running the disc from the new DVD Rewriter the green light blips a few times but nothing happens after that. Why is this occurring, what is an "HLDS" device and how can I install the software for my new DVD Rewriter?
Asked by: Bungmeister
We regret the difficulty you have experienced with this installation. The HLDS stands for Hitachi-LG Data Storage. As such, this message is stating that the disc has to be set up from the LG drive. The drive must be installed properly before the disc can be used. The disc does NOT contain drivers for the unit. The device drivers are provided by your operating system.
