Problems with my HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GCA-4164

I don’t know when this problem started as I just noticed it recently when I try to access data discs I burned using the same drive the folder fails to load I try over and over again I here the click but the folder with the contents of the dvd fails to load.

I can’t figure out what the problem is I’ve tryed unistalling the dvd drive and reinstalling it I’ve tryed unistalling the Secondary IDE cable which is the one connected to the dvd drive but nothing so far seems to resolve it.

Not sure if updating the firmware will change this either. Using dvdinfopro my drive is HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GCA-4164B and my firmware is H.10 my pc is compaq which was bought over by HP. I know that its a LG drive going by other simaler names.

Any help with this would be great thanks

I’ve check compaq/hp site for firmware aswell and it doesn’t list mine there it does however list this update HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-H21L update

Anyway as above any help would be great thanks
