GSA H50L can\'t read data dvd\'s (LG GSA-H50L)

[qanda]This thread is about the LG GSA-H50L. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi all,

Suddenly my drive can’t read data dvd’s that I made either with this drive or with my previous one.

It’s fine when it come to CD’s and original movie dvd’s but data ones are a no go, it iwll just spin and spin. Sometimes I will hear it (i’ve externalize the drive) start to access and stop, access and stop but that’s it.

Since about a month ago it wouldn’t burn at 16x Nero would only burn it at 4x.

Oh I stand corrected, I just put in a data disc in the drive about 2 minutes ago and now it just started to read it…

Aside from that so far I’ve tried to remove the primary and secondary channel and reboot but it is still the same thing.

I put a new firmware in and it is also the same thing.

Any suggestions,
