Latest Firmware for HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20N DVD-Drive

In my Notebook (ASUS X51RL) I have a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20N DVD-Drive and have some trouble with it (for example some times it likes a DVD and some times it doesn't like the same DVD, Drive only moves a while and then it stops without giving a message to screen). I'm looking for a few days to find the newest firmware for it to solve this problem eventually. Very hard. I downloaded WP03 and flashed from WN07 to WP03. No change (Perhaps drive is broken or another software-problem in Win-XP). Now I got a hint, there's WR02. Is this one newer, and if so, where can I download it? Is there somewhere a website, where I can find the history for firmware-releases of GSA-T20N?

    Thx for answering, but on this site is only a heading. Site is empty. There are no download-possibilities.

    Many thanks. That's a very helpful site ( http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/Other-D... ). My question is answered completely. Unfortunately it doesn't solve my problem with the drive. Further on it doesn't work fine. It seems to be broken.

    Again many thanks. But I resign.

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060 doesn't help, because there are no upper- and lower-filters in this registry-setting on my computer.

    Also your second hint (uninstall and reinstall) failed.

    I think, either the drive is actually broken or my registry is corrupted totally. I've tried so much in the last week. Downloading many programs (for instance DVD-Identifier, MSCE, ASPI, codecs and so on). Uninstalling Nero (using kill-nero) and Power-DVD and other programs, which I suspected to cause the trouble. Now I have had enough. Next I will reinstall Windows-XP and if that will not be successful I'll buy another drive.

    Once again many thanks for your efforts. Bye

    I have the same problem as well and I've also noticed that lots of people had problem with this DVD drive. I think this model has bugs.
