    Hi, I have a problem. When I boot up my PC always I get a message saying " hkcmd Module has some error".



    Also my DVD rom doesn't play DVDs. It plays only CDs. What I have is LG

    HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC 44808.



    My PC is Compaq Evo D310. I am using Windows XP Professional Operating System.

    I recently re-formatted my hard disk with the original software I got from Compaq.

    Can anyone help me to solve this problem please.

You should not need a driver for a CD/DVD drive. Drivers are built into windows.
If you are having problems, you could try uninstalling the device in device manager, and let windows re install the drive.
You may find a bios update to help with this problem here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=337531&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=337529&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1093

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

SOURCE: IM LOOKING FOR THE DRIVERS

Normally, DVD Drives are plug and play and there are already native drivers (in built software inside the Operating System) installed on your Operating System, hence you do not need to install the driver for it anymore since it should work automatically, once it is connected to your computer.

You can try downloading the firmware for the said device on your computer manufacturer's website (DELL, HP, etc.)

Hope this helps.

Hp gdr 8162b ethernet driver


HP Partsurfer does not recognise gdr-8162b at all, nor does anything show up for this code anywhere on the HP site.
eBay sellers seem to think this is DVD-ROM drive, manufactured by Hitachi-LG and sometimes rebranded by HP whose part number (according to some eBayers) is 323588-001.
HP Partsurfer also thinks that 323588-001 is a DVD-ROM drive.
I'm afraid therefore that I'm unable to find an ethernet driver for this code without more info on the HP product.
Sorry

Can read but cannot write


I think it will be ok if you upgrade the firmware can download it from lg.com support and download and choose proper model and device and down load a formware updat and update it .
and also try to remove and reinstall your burning software ,
also please try to burn a data from windows itself if it writes that means no issues with firmware only reinstall the burning software.

Ineed driver for xp


You dont need any drivers for internal drives, you may need to go to DEVICE MANAGER remove the dvd drive and let windows pick it up again.
You can download a FIRMWARE update.

Ibm rev 1.2 cannot detct my lg gdr-h30n dvd rom


Detection should happen when the cdrom is hooked up correctly. Make sure the cable is on right.
Make sure that the jumpers are correct for the way you have it connected.
Older bioses may not see newer drives. The bios would need to be updated if some equipment hooked on is too new.

Another thing to check... see if the drive will work in another computer.
This will determine if the cdrom dvd is good and working.
