Question about LG GWA-4082N DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4082N on hp pavilion zv6270ca

Drive has worked well for about 1.5 yrs until kids improperly inserted disk and lodged it between drive housing and keyboard. Now windows (XP SP2 home) device manager reports driver loaded but cannot find hardware device. The pavilion can still boot from the dvd, but I cannot get drive to work in windows. I have tried uninstall driver and reinstalling with the same results.

    Hey

    The problem is a Virus/trojan destryeing the drivers - the solution Ithink is to reinstall them but where to find the drivers on the net is the problem - of course we have the drivers on CD but CD-drives won`t funktion at all - extern drives ditto!

    Drive is now working again, some software sems to have altered registry settings. Out of desperation I re-enabled nerocheck in the system startup. Next time the computer was restarted a message came up saying the settings for upper and lower filters were corrected and the device would work properly when restarted. Go figure, it works again.

HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4082N not regognized on laptop (code 41)


if ur using HP computer then start tapping F10 immediately when u start ur comp.. this will take u to Bios.. u should be able to see ur CD/DVD rom there..
second.. Error 41 normally means comp. is unable to read the CD/DVD rom properly.. heres wht u need to do ..
  1. Click Start vistastartbutton.jpg, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in thePrograms list.

    securityshield.jpg If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
  2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
  3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
