LG DVD Burner\'s Got The Hump! (LG GSA-H55N)



[qanda]This thread is about the LG GSA-H55N. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi Guys
My LG internal Burners got sick on me.
I’ve been using it about 6 moths now with no problems.
Mostly burning movies with Nero.
Recently i bought new blank Philips DVDs.
My LG burner never liked them.
'kept telling me the new box fresh disc wasn’t empty.
Fine, i thought i’ll buy my usual brand -TDK.
Now it won’t recognise anything - even audio CD’s.
Whatever i put it the light comes on, it spins for a few seconds and…nothing.
The drive appears in windows (XP) but no matter what i put in - windows tells me to “insert disk”
i tried removing the drive from device manager & updating/flashing firmware.
I’m at a loss???
Please Help any advice appreciated.
