All of the evidence leads to a failing drive. We could continue running fixes till we're blue in the face, but when a drive fails...it's done.

Usually, in this case, if you have LG support repair it, (if not under warranty), you'll pay an arm and a leg to replace the burning mechanism. Same type of stuff I went through, except my issue was more VCR/DVD recorder problem.

Price of new drive: $40-80 USD
Price of mechanism: $60-260 depending on brand popularity
Cost of replacing mechanism (tiresome): $60-200 depending on experience of techie.

As you can see, a new drive is the best option.

I'm sorry it came to this, as I wouldn't recommend you to pay anything unless if necessary.

Let me know what you do.

Ok, that was my thinking also. I will probably just replace it. Thanks for all your help.
