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.

DRIVER NEEDED: Hitachi hl-dt-st rw/dvd gcc-4241n (Windows XP Home)


DRIVER NEEDED: Hitachi hl-dt-st rw/dvd gcc-4241n (Windows XP) [IDE]

Simple solution:

Situation
There is a yellow exclamation mark for CD/DVD drives in Device Manager. The device status in the properties of the driver might indicate an error code, for example 32, 37, or 39. Or the drive simply does not appear in My Computer or Device Manager.

Solution

To solve the issue, you have to edit the Windows Registry:
Click Start, then Run, type REGEDT32 and click OK.
Locate and then remove the following registry values:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCl ***{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}LowerFilters

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCl ***{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}UpperFilters

Close Registry Editor.
Reboot the system for the changes to take effect.

Note: Some programs are unable to detect the CD/DVD drive after these steps. To solve this, simply re-install the program in question, eg: usually your recording software. Also, in few instances the order in which the programs are (re-)installed can make a difference.

What fix to apply to HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B in Dell Dimension E310 so it can read/play a dvd movie?


Try the following:

1. Go to the Dell.com support site and be sure you have the latest updates for your computer's operating system and the DVD drive, especially the DVD drive's drivers BIOS.

2. Make sure you have the software to play the movie, like Sonic, Windows Media Player, Power DVD, Quicktime, etc. and be sure they are the latest versions.

3. Depending on the movie format, not all DVD drives will play all DVDs. The most common discs are DVD-R and DVD+R and file types like *.avi, *.mpeg, *.mp4, *.mov and then commercial formats. Also try the movie in another machine or DVD player and see what happens.

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.

HL-DT-ST DVD +-RW GSA-H21N ATA Device is not working gives a code 10....tried for new drivers was all updated..tried to uninstall and reboot then reinstall nada. This is a acer comp.


Right click on “Computer” or “My Computer” in XP. Select Manage and then on the right side select device manager. On the left if you see a yellow exclamation mark next to your drive and were getting any of the above error codes then we have a simple fix.
Go ahead and right click on the CD or DVD drive that has a yellow exclamation mark next to it and select delete or remove.

try to search:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Now that you are at the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} Folder on the right side you will see several entries. right Click and delete the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters. These will be remade once you reboot.

This will try to look for the drivers again..

HL-DT-ST DVD RAM GSA-T20N ATA Device error code 10, Laptop cant read DVD and doesn't acknowledge that there is a disc in the computer, and it even says that the driver is up to date and functional. HELP?


hi,

Error Code 10. The device is not installed, The Device Has A fault, The devices driver is not installed correctly.

Possible Solutions:- Uninstall the device, and re-install it using the device manager, Or Add new Hardware wizard, After uninstalling.
Does the drive read a CD ? this would eliminate the Cd reading. As the dvd uses a different or power increased laser beam. Do you have a good program installed for reading DVDs ( Power DVD Or Similar )

LG super multi drive identified as CDROM by Windows XP


First, thank you for the excellent description. I wish more FixYa clients would provide complete information like that.

Unless you are having problems, I wouldn't worry about the product designation in XP since it's LG drive that is identifying it as such during XP's device discovery routine. Your new LG drive can handle all of the different DVD rewritable formats - i.e. DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, and DVD-RW - so it appears that it is just using the first as its designator.

In my laptop, my LG DVD writer is designated as follows in Device Manager:

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T10N ATA Device


LG describes it as a "Slim DVD Super-Multi Drive". I've had no problems with it, and it has worked flawlessly to burn CDs and DVDs.
