[qanda]This thread is about the HP DVD840e. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Ok first lets setup the situation. About a month ago my Liteon drive LH20A1H crapped out on me… how I dont know. It ejects and shows up fine in device manager however upon inserting a disc, the indicator light lights up for a half second then stops, and the drive does nothing too…
Now to the present, I’ve been using my external HP DVD840e (which i believe has an LG GSA-4661 drive). Today, it stopped reading DVD’s however, it still reads CD’s just fine… Also, while trying to update drivers, i notice it only allows me to install CD drivers… wtf is windows doing???
I’ve tried fixing the problem in both Windows7 and windows xp (Both 64bit version). The liteon drive i’m not upset cause any internal drive today only costs $25 max, but my external i use and rely on, not to mention is still expensive.
Any help would be much appreciated.
