The LG GSA 4082B optical drive on my pc does not recognize either cd or dvd - no disk in drive is the displayed message when I access the drive. I have updated the firmware with LG genuine firmware 207A. I have executed their instruction exactly like it is written. Since then I am getting this message. Before, it was only recognizing CD. I Think the GSA 4082B drive was made by LG. I have the booklet. Was updating the firmware for this LG drive a mistake? I have updated other LG drives on my pc and have not had this problem.I recently bought a Samsung drive which I installed on another pc. Samsung makes it easy to update firmware for this drive. You install their software and it updates the firmware as it becomes available. I have written to LG about this development and ask them to follow Samsung. After all LG boasts of being leader in product development.Thank you. Please help me! I don not expect any help forthcoming from LG!Thank.James Parshad.
Hi James, welcome to CDF
Can you try the drive in another machine?
It is an old burner (yep, an LG one), so it may have just had it’s day.
