HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-H20L - this drive is on an HP a1560n PC. Just restored this PC, and the DVD/ CDRW will read pre-made CD's, but any CD that I put in- blank or one I made on another PC, it will not read.

MY HP DVD WRITER HL-DT-ST DVD RAM GSA-H20L WILL NOT RECOGNIZE CD'S OF ANY TYPE AND VARIOUS DVD MEDIA


ya... its lens/laser is getting ruined...!
such symptoms are quite obvious.

check it would be able to read non-empty Disc(pre-written CD's).
but not able to detect/read empty disc.

May be it can read and write branded Disc which comes in packing case such as "sony"
but not ordinary disc which are sold in loose packing.

if it is under warranty period. then it will be repaired or replaced free of cost.

My HP GSA-H21L lightscribe burner drive will play a CD but doesn't read a DVD nor will it burn a DVD. Don't know what the problem is but sure would like to! Can someone help? Dee Nickens


Hi,

There was a known problem with the firmware of HP GSA-H21L lightscribe burner where it will read CD and not DVD.

You can try upgrading the firmware from the link below (note: this is for DVD-RW 16X HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-H21L)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&softwareitem=pv-41633-1&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

If that does not work, you will have to talk to HP support and get it replaced.

Please rate this if it fix your issue.

Wont burn dc or dvd


Have you tried installing the original software did it have one if NOT. Then go to google type LG DRIVE 16 HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-4166B Software. See what google comes up with you will be surprised. The reason why its not burning as you say is because you are using a foreign software. I hate saying this but sometimes hardware can be sentimental like your wife/husband. Goodluck your prolem lies with software not hardware.
