[qanda]This thread is about the LG GH22NP. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello,
I recently replaced a shot drive with a LG GH22NP20 DVD-Ram drive. However in WinXPMCSP3 it is not recognised as a DVD writer. When a blank DVD is inserted the icon changes from DVD to CD-ROM and there is no way of burning a disk. I can read DVD’s fine.
Yes, I have tried the connections. (80pin IDE and power)
Yes, I have the jumper on master. The LG is the only drive connected on IDE. HD is on SATA.
Yes I have uninstalled the CD driver and the IDE driver and I did it in safe mode the second time just in case…
Yes, I tried the 3 Microsoft fixes, the high and low filter thing, another reg thing and something else too.
Yes I have tried different blank DVD’s +R -R RW …
Oh and Yes I’ve updated the firmware to 1.02
What is next for me? Maybe there is a cunning tickbox I have neglected somewhere?
Thank-you for any input. I have read quite a few posts in the forum on this subject. Maybe I have missed the essential one please point me in the right direction.
