My Lenovo g550 model slimtype dvd ads8a4s is playing CD's only not DVD's, it does not recognize them. What can I do?

Please double check your drive. GOTO My computer and there you will see disk partitions and optical drive type.. I mean your DVD drive does it says DVD or CDROM? Now if thats DVD then you need to check software you are using.. Its better if you can download VLC
Player thats the best software I have tried.. and no region issue.

My acer travelmate 240 wont read cd's anymore. been in device manager and on dvd/cd-rom drives it has a ! slimtype COMBO LSC - 24082K

It is a pretty common fault when drive can not read one type - cds or dvds. That means you have to replace the drive. Price of the drive is not that high so that makes no sense to try to fix it. Cheapest I guess would be eBay (from what I see right now 20 dollars including delivery) but also there are plenty of on-line stores. Just use your favorite search engine to find the drive or simply go to the closest computer repair place and tell them that you want the drive replaced.

Firmware Here

After you have downloaded the firmware update above,the Firmware flash utility,and the FlashFix and saved them all to the desk top.Run the firmware flash utility in step 1.(and follow the directions) (after you run it and make your back up,move on to step 2), Run flashfix in step 2 (and follow the directions)After you have completed steps 1 and 2 move onto the flash,(just click on the update firware file on you desktop and run it.(follow the directions n the screen)

Note: Firmware flash utility =LtnFw (use it for the backUp)

Step 1: Make a backup copy of your current firmware. You can do so using LtnFW. you should make this backup incase you decide that you want to undo the firmware flash, you will need a backed up firmware.

Note: FlashFix=flash fix

Step 2:The firmware flasher is checking your drive and seeingthat you have an OEM model and is thus refusing to flash it. FlashFix will patch the firmware flasher so that it will agree to flash your drive.
Note: Flash=The firmware file you downloaded

Step 3: After using FlashFix, run the flasher, make sure that you select the correct drive from the drop-down list, and flash

I hope this better explains the steps

USB Midi Controller

the 'Add New Hardware Wizard' and force it to install the non-certified M-Audio drivers that were supposedly installed when running the M-Audio installer. (Skip internet search, and browse to M-Audio folder in Program files, it will eventually find them.) There are two M-Audio USB drivers that need to be 'forced' via New Hardware Wizard. But Windows thinks its drivers are a better match and even though 'device is working properly' it doesn't get recognized in your software. replaced them with the 2 USB ones from M-Audio, DAW finally recognized the keyboard. I even went through regedit to clean up all the M-Audio stuff so I could get a fresh install.

Good Luck you can do this /Have a great Sunday and a safe one.
