Hey there,
I've been having problems with my HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B.

First thing is first, here are some details.

I have a Dell Dimension XPS 400 /9150 with ALL latest updates from dell.
I have the latest driver for this device.
I have all the latest BIOS and Firmwire and EVERYTHING.
I'm Running XP Professional version 2002 SP3 32-Bit [Guatemala]
There are no possible updates for me to install for it, unless i missed something.


What the actual problem is, is that My drive can READ dvd's and cd's perfectly.
the problem is i cant WRITE DVD's or CD's
When i instert a blank cd or dvd nothing happens is just says please insert a disk. I am using Nero 7.11.10.0

And yes i have tried over 20+ different disks of different makes, none work and all same error. I just find out I can write only cd r\w discs

Please help!
