I had the GSA 4163B, it’s about 1 yr. old, have burned a lot of CD’s and DVD’s with good results, it stopped working, The light will come on for a minute or so, then goes off. I posted a thread, but no one responded, so decided to buy another one. I bought the LG GSA-H10L.
I took the old one out and installed this new one with the same cables etc. as the old one. The new one will not come on at all, no light or anything, when I tried to boot my computer, is says drive not found, after touching F1 the computer boots etc., I installed the software and let it update the firmware, but still doesn’t work, I can’t even open the drive.
I took it back out, re-installed the old one, it’s light works and will stay on about 1 min. as before, and I can open the drive, but of course it still doesn’t work. This is with the same cables etc as before.
Does anyone have suggestions as to what I should do?
