I’ve got a problem with my LG 4163B DVD Burner. It cannot read any DVD movies and it takes ages to read data DVD’s.
If I put a DVD movie in, the drive will do mini spin-ups and the LED will flash.When I try to double click the drive in “My Computer”, a dialog box says that the CD format is not correct and the drive icon says CD Drive instead of DVD. A data DVD does the same thing but eventually it will spin-up properly and run.
I have a Lite-On 52x CD Burner SOHR - 5238S and this is fine, no problems at all. (Both drives are on the same IDE cable) Apparently it uses the “NVIDIA CK804 Parallel ATA Controller v2.7” and the transfer mode is at Ultra DMA 2 - Ultra 33
Details of my system:
AMD64 3000+ S939
2x512MB Veritech DDR RAM
Leadtek 6600GT PCI-E
Enermax 600W PSU
Windows XP SP2
–the DVD burner actually worked fine for the first 4 weeks when I got the computer
