LG HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H22N won't read or burn

Hi, my LG HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H22N has never read a dvd or burned one at all. I’ve updated the firmware to 1.02 and the result is the same.

I have to use an external sony drive to read and write dvd’s. is there a windows aspect that i’m missing or is LG just absolutely useless crap?


Did you buy it new? Recently? If so, take it back to where you got it immediately.

Does the drive appear in Windows device manager?
