[qanda]This thread is about the LG GCC 4522B. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello everyone, I’ve got a LG 4522B combo drive as you can see in the title. It stopped working about 1 year ago when we tried updating it because it couldn’t recognise double layer DVDs. Since then, the drive seems most likely dead.
When I open the LG update tool, my drive appears and it says Device Revision: Boot. When i click on upgrade, it says transferring and then updating, at that moment my drive’s light BLINKS (I think that means it’s not really dead) when it’s done it says either update “Firmware update failed” or “Firmware update successfully completed”, Then it asks me to reboot. When I reboot, the drive doesn’t still respond as always.
On the other hand, when I enter the device manager, it says my drive is working normally,ImgBurn can’t detect my drive… but Nero can .
I don’t know if it may be a physical problem (i.e. something disconnected inside the computer). If that’s the case, then I can’t do anything because I just know nothing about computers on the inside.
Also, I made a search and found this thread, maybe my drive is in a “safe mode” and I should use XSF to flash it from DOS like the other guy did?
Any help will be appreciated.
I think I should’ve posted this in the LG subforum under the recording hardware section. If that’s the case, sorry.
