I own a LG GSA-416XX (cannot remember the final digits as not at home at the minute) DVD-RAM drive. It has lightscribe if that helps with the identification! It has worked fine for a very long time until a couple of nights ago.
I had backed up a movie of mine but decided not to write it that same night. When i switched my PC on the next day, the drive would not recognize any CD or DVD disc in the drive. The light will flicker as if reading but will stop soon afterwards. The drive is shown in My Computer and device manager states the device is working fine with no little yellow ! icon.
Also, i noticed that when either a CD and DVD is inserted, the name of the drive in My Computer changes from DVD-RAM Drive to CD-ROM,even if a DVD is in there! I can double click the drive but it only opens up like a CD-R type window to drag and drop files for burning.
I don’t understand what the problem could be and has baffled me so hopefully someone could shed some light on this?
Many thanks in advance
