The drive LG sent us for this review was manufactured in July of and had firmware version 1. I’d recommend it to my friends, family, and anyone shopping around for a Blu-ray player. Now don’t get it wrong, it’s merely a Blu-ray player, not a burner. This means that the drive’s region is stored in the firmware. No time to chat? How satisfied are you with this response? Now I go to install after formatting it isn’t picking up that there is a disc in there.

hh20l Only the flashing blue indicator shows that the drive is active, even though there isn’t any noise dampening material lining the edge of the drive tray. Rated 5 out of 5 by Mauro from Great Blu-ray Drive This drive did exactly what it was made for and more. Now I go to install after formatting it isn’t picking up that there is a disc in there.

Off by default, this LED lights up a bright blue whenever the drive is reading or writing. While LightScribe capable drives use the same laser when burning both the data and label, they have to be able to accurately control the laser’s focus and position as well as the spindle speed. All seem to communicate exceptionally well. Before you can do this though, gggc will need to choose the contrast.

HL-DT-ST BDDVDRW GGC-H20L not reading dvds/blu-rays

H2l0 5 out of 5 by Tarcil from Great Drive I’ve had a few optical drives in my time and few of them could do as much as this one. Product Registration Get the most out of your new purchase.


ALSO when I put a blu h220l in there, it beeps very quietly. Unlike some drives which are quiet initially, until they are reading or writing at maximum speed, the LG is relatively silent throughout. There’s nothing much to mention about the bezel, besides having logos from both competing HD formats.

This drive was definitely worth the extra money I paid. Keep in mind this option not only changes the level of detail, it also affects the amount of time it takes to print the label.

For being relatively inexpensive as far as BD drives go it’s a very nice piece of equipment.

The drive’s region can be changed five times and after that it cannot be changed anymore. How satisfied are you with this response? While the drive came in a retail box with the bundled software burned onto a CD-R disc, it did not include a printed manual or any cables. LG has gone with a rather typical design for this drive and our model came solely in black with no option to change the bezel.

By looking at the picture above you can see the drive’s SATA interface and power connector. However, at the time of this review, the list of compatible software is still relatively short.


LG was at pains to explain the confusion surrounding HDCP when it came to HD video playback and summarized that neatly in a table on the package under System Requirements. Chat with an LG Support Representative. Details shown on product images may vary by region, country, or model.

While there are ggc few cosmetic differences, like the placement of the LED and emergency hole, it shares the same basic design and has many of the same logos.

I have the same question 9. I love watching Blu-ray movies on my computer. Get a complimentary Fitbit Charge 3 with every pre-order.

I’ve burned no coasters with this drive and lightscribe works good. Rated 5 out of 5 by merkat from Excellent Buy This is everything and more I want ggd an optical drive.


See all Specs Close. Disc at Once, incremental Recording and Restricted Overwrite: This means that H20, new drive is capable of backing up titles protected by SafeDisc 2, including version 2. The higher the quality, the longer the process will take. They also must be able to recognize LightScribe media.
