Question about IBM Lenovo ThinkCentre M55e PC Desktop

1 Answer

Hi. I have a HL-DT-ST DVD-RAm GSA-H40N. Normally with no DVD in the driveletter will read DVD-RAM but when I insert just a blank dual layer 8.5G disk it will read it as a CD ROM Drive. De driver for this DVD is from 2001, and it won't show that it needs a driver update even with Driver Genuis and Drive Whiz . Trried to download it from LG but I only could get GSA-H42N instead of 40N. I been looking now for a driver for this for days. Please help. Ronny Reyes reyes000@hotmail.com
