Good day all,
I have a LG GSA-4163B that started acting funny, and that’s funny peculiar, not funny haha for you WKRP fans.
It worked fine for over year, no problems with any brand of disc. Then trying to burn pics it would only burn to some of the CD-R discs. I thought maybe a bad batch of discs because it still burns to the occasional one (all same brand) and had no problem with burning to DVD-R.
Then one day it decided not to burn DVD anymore. I asked a friend and he suggested updating the firmware. It was currently running A102, so I updated to A105 (following the ‘readme’ file procedure to the ‘T’).
No errors in doing so.
Used FWCheck and I quote:
HL-DT-STDVDRAM GSA-4163B Firmware Version A105
So it now reads CD’s and plays DVD’s. But it does not burn either anymore.
Drag and drop (or copy and paste) a pic onto drive and up pops the window:
“Cannot copy (pic): Files on this CD-ROM drive are read only. You cannot copy or move files over to this CD-ROM drive.”
Checked out System Information and it only lists CD-ROM under components.
Media Type CD-ROM
Name HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B
And one other thing when you right click on a pic, the E: is no longer on the ‘Send To’ list although all other of the usual suspect choices are still there.
If you need more info from me, please let me know.
Thanks in advance for any help.
