Due to copyright protection features, certain requirements must be met in order to playback BD and HD DVD
movies on a computer. When using digital video connections, the monitor and graphics card must support
High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). Note that most monitors and graphics cards currently don’t
support HDCP. But, most High Definition TVs and multimedia monitors do support HDCP. Refer to the PC or
graphic card maker’s web site to see if your card supports HDCP.
Some video cards that currently support HDCP:
- nVIDIA: GeForce 7800 GTX 512 / 7900 GT / 7900 GX2 / 7900 GTX / 7950 GX2 / 8600 GS / 8600 GT /
8600 GTS / 8800 GTX or higher with 256MB min memory.

❏
Occasionally CD-R and CD-RW discs written by a CD-R/RW drive cannot be read by other
CD drives. These unreadable discs may need to be read using the CD-R/RW drive they
were created with. The disc written using the CD-R/RW drive might not be readable by
CD-ROMs other than Multi-read compatible (UDF compatible) CD-ROMs.
Multiread compatible (UDF compatible) CD-ROMs are CD-ROMs that can read low
reflectance and support Packet Write.
❏ Please note: Certain software (i.e. particularly those including Video playback) may require
a considerably increased specification PC to give acceptable results. While this Blu-ray
Disc Rewriter & HD DVD-ROM Drive can read DVD-video or BD-MV(BD-ROM) discs,
decoding them to display on your pc’s monitor requires separate MPEG, H.264 or VC-1
decoding that is done by separate hardware (either an MPEG, H.264 or VC-1 decoder card
or MPEG, H.264 or VC-1 decoding done by your video card), or separate software that you
install to do MPEG, H.264 or VC-1 decoding. For further details, refer to the documentation
that comes with MPEG, H.264 or VC-1 software.

Caution!
The disc rotates at high speed in the drive unit.
Use of worn, damaged, or non-standard discs can
adversely affect the drive and cause the disc to
shatter or crush while in use.
Disc crush can only occur when you use a damaged
disc in the drive. It is an extremely rare occurrence,
but there are steps which can be taken to prevent it.
Always check your discs before inserting them
into the drive.
1. Take care not to use worn, cracked, damaged,
warped or poor quality discs, as this may
cause damage to your drive.
2. Check the clear plastic on the center of the
disc, cracks here are the main cause of disc
crush.
3. Do not play discs which are a non-standard
(I.e. non-circular)shape, such as heart shaped
discs, or discs in the shape of a business
card.
How can you keep your discs from becoming
damaged?
1. When not in use, remove discs from the drive.
2. Keep discs in the packaging supplied with
them and out of direct sunlight and away from
heat sources.
Excessive vibration or a sudden jolt to the drive
during operation may cause a malfunction.
Avoid exposing the drive to sudden changes in
temperature as it may cause condensation to collect
inside the drive.
Please visit www.lgservice.com and install the automatic
firmware download program, “LG ODD Online F/W update.”
This program will automatically check for new firmware
releases and download them. It is also included on the
software discs that accompany our drives.
