SOURCE: My HP GSA-H21L lightscribe burner drive will play

Hi,

There was a known problem with the firmware of HP GSA-H21L lightscribe burner where it will read CD and not DVD.

You can try upgrading the firmware from the link below (note: this is for DVD-RW 16X HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-H21L)

If that does not work, you will have to talk to HP support and get it replaced.

Please rate this if it fix your issue.

What's your problem?hl-dt-st dvdrrw gsa-h21l player drags and plays slowly


If I were you, I would power down the machine, and reseat the cables. Which means you unplug and reinsert the cables. There should be a power cord, a data cable either SATA or ribbon depending on the drive, and possibly some drives also have a twisted pair that connects audio to the motherboard but this is mostly on older machines. As for the slowing down of playback, run ccleaner. Also make sure windows firewall is turned on, and also windows malicious software removal which is an antivirus.

My lg GSA-H55N dvd writer is not playing Cds but plays Dvds fine


your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution
thankyou
