Hl-dt-st dvdrrw gsa-4166b




i have a dvd multi burner/reader newly bought in Germany - Using in India. Recently I encountered problems with the drive (In Windows XP professional)… it would stop reading certain DVDs, and the DVD media(DVD-r) that i used to burn on stopped being recognized… So I cant burn DVDs now also.

I then checked if DMA is on… it was off. So I turned it on with Nero and restarted then… on the next go the DMA is still off and the media still not reading… Would appreciate and would be grateful for any assistance!


Read this for more info on your problem.
It generally occurs after the drive has had several consecutive read errors.
Win XP then turns DMA off and you will be no longer able to use it.
