yes your quite correct, starforce once installed can damage the fimware more so for multi writers, a common problem will be slower recording speeds.
It can even damage the hardware itself and render the writer totally useless.
If your getting to that stage, for the price of a new writer, it's not worth the worry, replacing the drive is the only answer.
It says that it's a CD-RW drive- a CD-RW drive can't read/write DVD's, you need a DVD drive.
You can pick one up for rather cheap from several online retailers -
It's common problem with combo drives in notebooks, they don't seem to last long.
Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete.
Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers.
If the problem persists the laser is faulty in the drive and the drive will need to be replaced.
Try this download page to update your firmware from 25/10/05, so if you bought your writer before this date maybe this will work, otherwise buy 8x discs.
The faster the discs are burned the more chance of errors there are, you should write at slower speeds for better quality.
