LG and HP in known for thier reading laser to become trashed or crash. Once this happens, you can only replace the drive.

Sorry for the bad new but I faught an HP drive for months before I just bought a new one.

Save yourself the hassle.

HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4243N wont burn dvds


Hi there,

Try uninstalling the Driver in Device Manager: in XP or earlier: Start/Control Panel/System/Hardware Tab/Device Manager, or in Vista & 7: Start/Control Panel/Device Manager.

Once in Device Manager click on the + sign that is in front of 'DVD/CD ROM drives' to open it up, then right click on the model of the Optical Drive in question.

Click Properties/Driver Tab/Uninstall (Advanced) & this will remove the driver if it is corrupt. Restart your system & the Hardware Manager will recognise the Optical Drive & install the necessary Driver.

If this doesn't solve your dillema then I hope that you have a warranty. Good luck in trying.

Kindest regards,

Ste

Hi!, my HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4320 can not read any DVD disk so I want to upgrade the firmware but I haven't got any firmware of its.


look to the manufacture of the produce - email them, call ect. they might not release a firmware. if you cant read ANY dvds right now your drive might have an issue with the laser- has nothing to do with firmware. replacment dvd drives run like 20$ now so your not out much.

Windows can only write to CDR disks in its internal drivers, and to burn DVD's requires a 3rd party program such as NERO or NTI.

What software are you using? You have to use software to burn. Try NERO
