Athanase1 -> GSA-4082N PROBLEMS (9/19/2006 7:00:32 AM)

Hello to everybody and thank you for recieving me.As a newbie in all this ,I might make a few mistakes,so be lenient.
To the point:I have an LG HL-DT-ST-DVDRW GWA-4082N GW02 writer that I got from a friend of mine,to put into a barebone Clevo d870p laptop that I'm putting together.
1st issue:it didn't read any cd-r media I threw at it,no matter what type,although it did read/write dvdr media,and at x8 speeds.I thought it was a firmware problem,so after much reading and thought I updated the firmware to 2.40 through the Dangerous Brothers .To no avail,same problem.Then I flashed it to a  GSA-4082N CQ04 but still the same.
Is my drive scrapped or am I not doing something right?
Any info would be appreciated .
Thanks in advance

I google your drive and seems that many people have exactly the same problem but there is no answer availiable. Seems like your cd reading ability of your drive is dead

Thank you for your reply,adiadidas.
Just one question;Do dvd-rw drives have 2 processors ,with each one reading their part,i.e. cd's for one,dvd's for the other?

If you mean the lazer that read your disc no its only one. The same for cd's and dvd's as far as i know. If i am wrong please some guru of the forum  correct me.

Hi friend! does it recognize any kind of media, either CD or DVD? if not there are two possibilities, either is dead or it has compatibility issues with your laptop
