GSA-H42LK Burns nothing but coasters

I cant figure out why my burner never has worked. I downloaded all the latest drivers , etc. It just wont do its job with nero or any other utility. I’ve tried dozens. The only thing i think may be a problem is the IDE setup in my computer device manager. Two primary drives show and Two secondary drivers show even though my mother board only has 2 IDE channels, and out of those 2 physical channels only 1 is in use. My computer on the other hand thinks 4.

I’ve been getting DRM errors? CDA errors?

Any idea how I can fix this before i give up on LG all together?

I tried updating the firmware to SL01 but i get the following error:

Updating was failed. Please repeat that. (Error data = 70 00 04 00 00 00 00 0A 8D F9 3F 00 08 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 50 13 E5 )

Here’s a pic of the test i did.

Well, i got newegg to RMA it, so well see what happens. Just for fun, i picked up an external burner for my lappy. :slight_smile:
