LG 16X Multi DVD/CD Rewriter - Noise emitting ...

Hi Folks,

When I put a DVD or Cd into this drive it starts giving out a loud noise & continues without anything happening. What is going on?

Please Help!

If this s with all disk I would suggest phoning LG click here they are usually very helpful and would be able to tell you if it is a problem with the drive.

LG optical drives have a 24 Month warranty and they will exchange the unit if faulty. If it is within the first 12 Months the may suggest returning it to your supplier.

it's throw it away time and get a new one.

Can't be certain of course, but it sounds like you have a drive belt or spindle fault and frankly, drives are so cheap now, it's not worth messing around with.

Sorry, it's unlikely to be good news!

BRYNIT, LastChip

Thanks for the reply. I will contact LG, see what luck.

May be you're right LastChip, will try BRYNIT's sugestion first. See what happens.

Hi All,

Yes, LG are quite good & helpful. I have returned the LG Rewriter to them. PC World only gives a ONE YEAR Warranty even though the Gaurantee Card says it's a Two year Warranty. They even said that they will return the postage charge for the return, if I have the Proof Of Posting. Now I have to wait and see when I get a replacement.

Thanks ALL
