20 Most Recent LG GSA 4163B DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner Questions & Answers


Here is what I suggest. I would go ahead and upgrade your OS. Windows Vista actually has worse performance than Windows 7/8/10. I recommend installing via USB flash drive. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/windows-usb-dvd-download-tool

If you really can't get your hands on an upgraded OS. Here is a link that might help you to resolve your problem: No CD Rom drive in Device Manager No error reported by XP Windows XP

Otherwise I think it might be a driver issue. If you could supply the product serial I could point you to some proper drivers.

What a rude message.
The error correction is in the firmware of the player, not the type of disc.
Many people have similar issues due to DVD players expecting the TOC to be standard and not for a PC/Mac.
I agree that Nero should be able to sort this out but if all copies work on your PC but not successful on your DVD player would suggest to me a copyright issue.

yes... but you need to have a good ammount of RAM memory and Disk drive space to achieve that since dual layer disc are up to 8 gigs..

you have not said what the problem is so ill take a guess
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
make sure that the cd rw is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the cd rw including electrical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might be bad/faulty or
your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back in or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you can you can update driver,roll back driver,or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem

Problem occurs when vista registry entry is corrupted. The steps to resolve this are as follows:
  • run regedit.exe
  • navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
  • Depending on your particular setup, you may have multiple entries for {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. If this is the case, find the one that says DVD/CD-ROM drives (under default)
  • Once you have found the appropriate key, you will see an entry that says UpperFilters.
  • Delete this key and then restart
  • (NB: Do not delete any other 'UpperFilters' key that is not in the category of DVD/CD-ROM drives, otherwise you may get the BSOD.)
This solution fixed my problem.

Go to the page linked below and click ONLY on the Blue download arrow. All else is very confusing advertising. You may experience as much as 2 more pages to wend your way through but always stay focused on your downloadthe only. When you download it, the download window will appear. Choose "SAVE" , then 'Desktop" as the SAVE destination. Shut down all other programs. Double-click on the driver file (it's actually known as "firwnware" for DVD playeres). It is normal to be advised that your computer will be taken over and forcibly shut down at the end of the application.

If the firmware was what was needed, your DVD player will run fine.
