Hi,
you have a very sought after dvd player there.
people are paying a lot of money for these.
They Only support DVD- Disks. DVD-R/RW DVD-ROM. DVD- Video. If you are trying to Read Any DVD+ Formats, they,re not compatable with this Drive.
Hope this answers your problem.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s recommend A Pioneer 111-112 Drive, reads most formats.

What fix to apply to HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B in Dell Dimension E310 so it can read/play a dvd movie?


Try the following:

1. Go to the Dell.com support site and be sure you have the latest updates for your computer's operating system and the DVD drive, especially the DVD drive's drivers BIOS.

2. Make sure you have the software to play the movie, like Sonic, Windows Media Player, Power DVD, Quicktime, etc. and be sure they are the latest versions.

3. Depending on the movie format, not all DVD drives will play all DVDs. The most common discs are DVD-R and DVD+R and file types like *.avi, *.mpeg, *.mp4, *.mov and then commercial formats. Also try the movie in another machine or DVD player and see what happens.

Try cleaning with a good quality dvd cleaner. The lens is probably dirty for the dvd part. After cleaning try a known good dvd and see if the problem is cured. Hope this helps.

OS is Windows XP Professional CD drive will not reconize a DVD+R for recording data. The drive is a HL-D-ST CDRW/DVD GCC4244.


A CDRW/DVD is a CD-burner and DVD-ROM combined unit. It is not meant to record DVDs only CDs.

It will not recognise a blank DVD as it is unable to read any file system.
