[B]So, this has got to be the quirkiest drive I have ever owned.
At this point in it’s life, I can read DVDs just fine. I can burn DVDs ok.
NOW, it has stopped reading CDRs, CDs…anything but DVDs. I upgraded the firmware to a107 (or whatever the most recent is called.) I noticed no difference. And I did it right, btw. My explorer view sees the drive as a “DVD_RAM Drive” unless I put a CD/R in it, at which point it changes to “CD-ROM Drive” and tells me to place a disk in the drive. When I put a blank CDR in the drive, it just gives me a blank directory.
Nothing has changed on my system. I have burned CDR, CDRW, & Office Depot DVD-Rs. At one point, it wouldn’t recognize DVDs at all & would only recognize CD/Rs. Dammit. This was also after my firmware upgrade. I took it out of my new system & put it in my other one (not much difference, really) to find it acting the same way (w/ completely diff hardware.)
I’ve read every single article on CDfreaks with LG 4082b in the title with no luck.
Any help, y’all?
I’d REALLY appreciate it! Thanks in advance,[/B]
