I have one huge issue with my LG H55N.
After a year of quite intensive usage, it suddenly stopped reading most od the DVDs.
Ive tried cleaning the DVDrom, upgrading firmware to 1.06 and nothing. I also tried various blank DVDs, from Verbatim, Imation, Traxdata and still the same. It barely can read blank DVDs, and I have to reinsert it few times, before it recognizes that there is a blank DVD in the drive. And after burning, it takes 20 or 30 (if I’m lucky) tries to successfully read that burned DVD.
With CDs, everything is OK.
Its also interesting that only PRINCO DVDs work every single time they are inserted (I have few of them).
I am on XP SP2, and tried reading on W7 RC, and the situation is the same.
Maybe modifying firmware would help? Because it is strange that it can read PRINCO DVDs, and not other media, which makes me think that this is some kind of firmware issue.
This is the drive specification from DVDInfo Pro
Maybe modifying the fw with MCSE (speed patch, or maybe RPC, or sth else) would help?
