Question about HP 48Xx32X48X16X GCC-4481B CDRW/DVD (352606MD0) DVD Drive

1 Answer

Hitachi -LG GCC-4481B DVD CD-RW

I purchased 3 of these from a computer recycle company. Both of them act the same. They play CD ROMS, Play DVD's, but when I go to burn it looks like it's going to happen, then a box appears "Windows Media Player cannot burn the files to the CD. Verify that the disc is clean and not damaged. If necessary, select a slower recording speed or try a different brand of blank discs".
I cranked it down to 8X with the same results. I'm using Maxell CD-R.
Any sugestions?

If the firmware was never updated, it can cause this.
A tool like Nero infotool will show the drive firmware version or you can scan your registry for "4481" and locate an entry in <HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\DeviceClasses>
that shows the drive model and a numeric fw version.

You can go to HP http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?lc=en&cc=us&softwareitem=pv-28110-1
or to Dell http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/FIRMWARE/Others/Dell-Dimension-8300-HLDS-GCC4481-B-Firmware-28012005.shtml
and use their firmware update.

We have LG DVD Combo Drive in our Desk Top PC where in Drive can Play CD but can not Play DOV or can not dispay contents on any DVD Inserted. Please Help Thanks Krishna Bikes Pvt Ltd.


In this case the laser for the dvd has died. This can't be fixed, you must replace the entire drive - a new dvd-rw will cost you less than $30.

I have a HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4481B installed in a eMac running 10.5.6. This drive will only read Mac Install disks. No DVD Video disks and no CD-ROM disks. What can I do ?


Go to company web site and see if there is a firmware update for the unit, you may have to put it in a PC to flash it if there is no mac version.

NEW gcc-h23n will not read anything


If not reading DVD is a pattern (it won;t read ANY DVD, no matter if it's a burned one or an original movie) then the lens is dead. I'm afraid you'll have to go get a new one (new drives are very cheap, usually around 25-30$)

Playing PC DVD roms problem


Dvd drives can read from both DVD and CD however due to technological limitations most DVD-ROM or RAM read up to slightly higher speeds for CDs than DVDs.

When burning DVDs professional companies that make prerecorded disks burn their disk at low speeds in an effort to achieve both compatibility and low errors, that is the reason their DVDs play on most DVD-ROMs. However DVDs me and you burn at home and work at high speeds are prone to errors and incompatibility with low reading speed drives.

As a result if your DVD-ROM has a low maximum reading speed then it can only read those prerecorded DVDs and only DVDs recorded at low speeds provided thre are not scratched.

I believe you managed to read those DVD movies if they were pre recorded.
