Is it possible to update the firmware of the HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22LS30 for use with double layered discs?


Install the latest chipset and sata drivers for your motherboard before you hook the sata DVD rom. Try hooking the DVD drive to another sata port, the HDD should be on SATA 1.

Make sure you've installed all the latest critical updates from Windows update. There's no chipset drivers available from Asus which means that the chipset should be supported by XP. Else the chipset in charge of the SATA controller is the SIS 964 chipset and you can find IDE and SATA drivers here : http://www.sis.com/download/. Can't hurt to give them a try but start with Windows update.

Refer to the motherboard manual to clear the BIOS settings (clear the RTC RAM in the manual).

What's the exact model of the hard drive and of the DVD drive ? Go to start => run and type devmgmt.msc. Expand disk drives and CD/DVD drives to find the model ID's.

While you're in the device manager check that there's no tagged device in the list (with a yellow or red icon).

I suppose your's is a SATA drive. Disconnect all the sata cables except for the Hard Disk and that of the Writer in question. Boot up and check if the drives works. If not take pains and try installing the drive in another PC (one of your friends'). If it still has the same problem check with where you bought it.

Computer shuts down on inserting disc


I have just fixed a computer with a similar problem. The owner installed a new DVD burner (a SATA drive) and every time he inserted a CD or DVD disc, the computer shutdown (mostly, because the front LED was still on and the CPU fan too, everything else just turned off [drives, PCI cards]). It happened in Windows, in Linux (Ubuntu) and even in the BIOS screen, so I discarded an OS problem. Also happened while booting if a CD or DVD was already inserted in the unit; as soon as the drive LED blinked, the computer crashed. After checking the obvious, I did three final tests:

1) try the DVD unit in another computer (it worked);
2) try the DVD unit with the power connector only, with the data cable disconnected (it shutdown);
3) try the DVD unit with the power connector from and external power supply, with the data cable connected (it worked).

By this point, it was obviously a power supply problem. I checked the power supply unit (PSU) and discovered it was pretty small (250 W). So I installed a more powerful one (350 W) and then it worked.

I checked with a wattmeter and it seems this DVD drive increased the power consumption by 25 watts when started to spin the disc. I really don't know if that is normal (taking 25W to start spinning the disc) or if this drive has some defect, but it seems the previous PSU could not provide that extra power and shutdown some of its output (but not all).

So, if you have this weird problem, maybe checking the power supply and testing with a bigger one may help.

Regards,

MV
