I have a near new LG GSA-4120B DVD-RW. Suddenly it wont work.. well let me clarify..
it will not play movie DVD's(Originals or burns) The cursor flashes from arrow to small cd symbol but nothing happens and then "my computer" stops responding at all. THen as soon as I eject the disc, "my computer returns to normal.
The drive will play data and audio cd's and dvd's but then renames itself to a CDRom Drive in my computer
The drive is recognised in system devices as a DVD-ROM drive and there are no problems showing.
Testing with Nero continues to indicate there is no disc in the drive.
PowereDVD advises me that the disc is in an unspecified format.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the device several times with no change to the existing problem.
I have done a full format on my system and the problem has remained unchanged.
I am running AMD 3200, IG DDR Ram, Asus A7N8X-E M/B with XP Pro SP2 with all updates.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
