Please Help on GWA 8040N

I bought this notebook Fujitsu Siemens Amilo M1437 two months ago and I was able to write all types of DVD (DVD-+R). I reinstalled Windows XP recently and now it can only write on DVD-R. Can anyone help with this also now it shows only DVD-R Drive earlier it was DVD-+R Drive in MY Computer.

The drive name showed is GWA-8040N. I tried updating the firmware but it says it cannot burn.Please Help!

Thanks in advance

Now it’s an 4080 - in your last post it was an 4082…


Sorry for the mistake it is GWA-4082N.

Can you please help

Never seen a firmware for an 4082N so far…
I would ask FSC if I were you. :wink:

It’s not important what buggy exploDer shows your for your drive.
Run DVDInfoPro and it will show you the capabilities of your drive.
