Sounds like the board went on the dvd drive. Replace the DVD drive with a new one.

DVD writer problem


try cleaning up the system. Defragmentation in safe mode will probably help too (i've seen high fragmentation over 10% really mess a system up to where it will not even complete a basic burn). Get rid of the resource hog called Norton- go get AVG free edition- YES IT IS COMPLETELY FREE!
also- try using Nero burning software- if it works for you you can buy it but they give you a free version on their website that works GREAT for everything and can test to tell you what the problem burning is (it has dignostic tools in it.)
if you are still unable to get it working- e-mail for further support options
good luck!

Will a HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4241N OC29 burn DVDs


Yes, but you will need a program capable of making dvds also, such as PowerDVD or CDCreator. I use CDBurnerXP (don't worry about the name, it works for all Windows OS's) because it's free.

My hl-dt-st dvd+-rw gsa t21n is corrupt!


I suspect that you are running Vista on your computer. If you have service pack 2 installed, then this is the reason for the missing drivers. When Microsoft issued SP2, they improved it worse. To make things worse, they will not correct the problem, instead, they issued Windows 7. Uninstalling the Windows drivers might help, but did not work for me. At start up, Windows should find the DVD drive as a new device, and ask for permission to look for and install the drivers. Click on no, and Windows will look for alternate drivers, from the firmware.

Your dvd lens needs to be clean from dust. Clean the lens of the drive by using a cd/dvd lens cleaner. You can buy it at any computer stores. Reconnect the drive from your computer.

HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8527B is problem can't working


If the drive is not working then it will need to be replaced. Check to see if the door opens & lights come on after loading a disc. If they do then it is more likely a driver issue. You can try to uninstall the drive in device manager and then reboot to see if Windows identifies the drive and installs the driver. If the drive is dead then replace with a compatible drive. Hope this helps.

I need to install my HL-DT-ST-RW/DVD GCC-4522B driver because my dvd disc not run. THANKS.


In Summary; I have a Dell Dimension 8100 desktop computer. I only have a CD-ROM drive. The CD drive broke, so I bought and installed a CD/RW- DVD Combo Drive (Model # GCC-4522B). I need to know where to set the jumper on the back. The options are CS, SL, or MA. Currently is set to SL but it does not work. I do not get the drive symbol to display under My Computer icon. I thought it was jut plug in and play. Need help if there is something else I need to do. Any response is very much aprreciated. Thank You!
