Hl-dl-st Dvdrrw Gsa-2166d

Hi Guys

This is my first posting. I have this super multi combo external driver. Until few months i used to burn images. But now, the device is detected and show up fine in system manager in windows xp ok and also in nero. However whenever i load DVD+RW for recording the stupid device keeps asking for insert a blank disc. I have used brand new virgin 5-6 different company DVD’s but none is detected. What should i do now? please help. The device was seldom used and i doubt it would have gone bad.


The drive is not stupid, you probably have installed “nasty” software like Alcohol, InCd or Daemon Tools.

Uninstall them, try again.
