Windows XP Pro - LG GCC-4243N combo drive not seeing data on disks

My Dell laptop has Windows XP Pro and an LG GCC-4243N DVD/CD-RW combo drive. My problem is that the computer sees the drive but it always shows that there's nothing in the drive. I've tried putting in all kinds of CDs and it still sees nothing. I found a firmware update online and it ran fine, told me to reboot and same problems after the reboot. I've tried uninstalling the driver and rebooting. Windows sees the new hardware and 'installs' the driver so that the computer will see the drive but it still shows nothing on the disks.

Have a dell inspiron cd-rw/dvd drive combo but it does not burn dvd only cd

Your drive is not a DVD burner. The way you can tell is that it is called a CD-RW/DVD drive, not a CD-RW/DVD-RW drive.

Hi and welcome zarevg !
You can try an automatic update via the Device Manager where you select CD/DVDrom drives and double click on the drive's name . select driver and update driver , let Windows search the best available driver .
You also can download the driver from here :
Note : It seems there are no drivers beyond XP available .

I need driver for cd rewriter/DVD-ROM Drive LG model:GCC-H23N.

Unless you are running a very old version of windows, your CD-ROM should be automatically detected and drive installed upon startup. Check your BIOS settings and make sure there are no conflicts there.

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,

My LG combo drive HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-H23N does not read dvd but reads cd

Try to open the device, and clean with some medicinal alcohol the lens of the drive, and clean the dust from it.
Assemble it and see if it works. In this cases there is a high opportunity for the client to make an upgrade and buy a DVD-RW

Burning problems

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.
