Yeah... that's common. The Toshiba DVD drives uses a different drive select than other people's DVD drives. Look to the manufacturer of your DVD/CDRW drive and look to see if there's a firmware update that will allow you to set the drive select differently. If not, then you'll be stuck with the IDE1 thing forever.

Now... here's the fun part: some of these drives will give you an IDE error, they'll never boot, but some of them will work perfectly when you get into Windows.

I need driver for cd rewriter/DVD-ROM Drive LG model:GCC-H23N.


Unless you are running a very old version of windows, your CD-ROM should be automatically detected and drive installed upon startup. Check your BIOS settings and make sure there are no conflicts there.

HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4243N wont burn dvds


Hi there,

Try uninstalling the Driver in Device Manager: in XP or earlier: Start/Control Panel/System/Hardware Tab/Device Manager, or in Vista & 7: Start/Control Panel/Device Manager.

Once in Device Manager click on the + sign that is in front of 'DVD/CD ROM drives' to open it up, then right click on the model of the Optical Drive in question.

Click Properties/Driver Tab/Uninstall (Advanced) & this will remove the driver if it is corrupt. Restart your system & the Hardware Manager will recognise the Optical Drive & install the necessary Driver.

If this doesn't solve your dillema then I hope that you have a warranty. Good luck in trying.

Kindest regards,

Ste

My LG combo drive HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-H23N does not read dvd but reads cd


Try to open the device, and clean with some medicinal alcohol the lens of the drive, and clean the dust from it.
Assemble it and see if it works. In this cases there is a high opportunity for the client to make an upgrade and buy a DVD-RW

CPU Upgrade


You pulled the processor out of your laptop ... that was a brave move ... generally laptop boards are fully integrated so there is very few options on changing the processor ... also because of the extreme heating conditions the heat sink bonding is very critical ... make sure you replace this properly or you will have overheating issues in the future ...
