View Full Version : [ubuntu] LG CD/DVD burner doesn't work (GH22NS70)

November 5th, 2011, 08:29 PM
I bought an LG OEM CD/DVD (model GH22NS70) burner forever ago. For some reason, it works with the BIOS, but Ubuntu doesn't recognize it. neither 32 or 64 bit OSes will recognize it, and it doesn't work for 11.04 or 11.10. Any ideas on what I can do?

Sounds like the firmware works for the bios, but its not interfacing with the printer drivers. You probably have a bad device. Can you test it in another machine?

I don't really have another machine to test it on. What gets me is that it works for the bios but not the OS. It's not as if it doesn't work at all.

Same problem here!
The same GH22NS70 - that doesnt work rights with xubuntu 11.04 / 11.10.
