Question about LG GH22NS50 22X DVDRW SATA Drive OEM DVD-RAM Burner

1 Answer

I bought a new system (minus O/S) with a SATA GH22NS50 dvdrw (LG). The DVD drive failed to spin up when trying to install the operating system no matter how the boot order or SATA settings were adjusted. I also reset the cables. The mobo is an Asus M4N68T-M2. Some mobo's won't recognise a SATA DVD drive unless set to IDE emulation, at least until the drivers (and o/s) are installed. There is no IDE Emulation listed specifically in the bios. I installed Windows7 using my USB Sony DVDRW. I updated the existing LG TN02 firmware to TN03 and rebooted...yet the drive still fails to spin. DevMgr says it's fine, the interface must be working properly or else the firmware update would have failed. I'm not overly familiar with newer systems and SATA devices, to me...the drive is just not working (or a dud). Any ideas..??? Thanks.

If it's under warranty I would recommend you to return it, it should work without additional drivers. If possible try with a different SATA cable and/ connect it to a different SATA port on the motherboard.
