Hi. Please bear with me. I just signed up and this is my first post. I am somewhat technologically challenged!
The problem I am having is my dvd/cd burner will read and burn CD-R but will not recognize dvd what so ever.
My drive is a HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4164B
I know it is a P.O.S! Ok, I get that. But it worked fine until I had to reformat my pc...thank you Trojan from FB!
My pc is a Gateway GT5012 and the drive is made by samsung/toshiba...?
Now, I have searched for a month to find a fix for this. I have read everyone eles's issues with this device. It could be the driver, firmware, need to delete the upper and lower something or other, ect..............
How hard can this issue be to fix? My burner is not shot - my pc is not recognozing the fact it is also a DVD player/burner.
Will someone who has an actual idea of how to fix this please respond to this. I am more than willing to provide any further system info that you might need.
PS - If I cannot get this fixed I will have to put in a new drive. Any suggestions? I am a simple guy. Burn music cd's, burn to DVD for pc backup n stuff.
GRRRRRRRRR THIS SUCKS!
