Hi Guys My LG DVD-RW drive cannot read .exe files, neither can it run "autorun". I just built my pc, with a fresh copy of windows.. (I installed windows using that drive though). What could the problem be? I then connected one of my old DVD drives, and it worked perfectly..

The problem could be many things.
Can you copy a .exe file off the disk to the hard disk and run it there? Are you just having troubles running programs off the disk?
I got exactly the same situation - same Motherboard with an LG GDR-8164B - just a DVD-R. Also had installed Windows, but couldn't install anything else. I replaced the drive with one from my old PC and it all worked. I assumed the drive was faulty and returned it. Now I wonder...
