I have a LG GSA H55 writer. It has been writing Sony DVD+RW discs using Nero 7(with latest update) without any problems.

The last 4 written DVD+RW disc’s are not recognised by the LG drive If I put the disc in second Plextor DVD rom drive information is displayed.I have reinstalled Nero 7.

If I put older DVD+RW discs in LG drive information is displayed.

There are numarous versions so please check which one you require.

Sound like the DVD read laser may have a problem, all it needs is for a knock and the laser can shift

I have the lastest firmware.

Yes but if it was working, Why not now?

PS have you tried reading "other DVDs" in the drive?

Woodchip as already mentioned will read older DVDs

Then the discs must have a fault that that drive is seeing

The discs that wont display in LG writer,show information when put in Plextor drive.
