Question about LG (GCC4521BBULK) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner
This drive won't recognise DVDs, but is OK on CDs. It will read but not write DVDs and I can't find a decent driver that works. The machine is a Compaq Presario M2217AP.
It seems that what you have is a combo drive only :(
it only recognize DVD reading. no matter what driver you used. need to buy a dvd writer/ that said can write dvd.
