Gsa-4163b only reads when sled is not opened

A GSA-4163b drive refuses to read a cd unless there is a cd inside the drive when windows is started. It plays then. As soon as I open and close the sled, the cd cannot be accessed.

Discinfo can’t locate any drives, nor can LG firmware updater.

Any help?

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

At first glance that would indicate a software problem, if a disc inserted after Windows boots isn’t read.

However, just to eliminate a possible problem, have you tried a fresh IDE cable?

Also, can you please post a Nero InfoTool output, so we can see what software may be messing with things.
