This problem occurred after dismantling the device for a routine maintenance. It somehow became apparently only a reading drive – reads cd’s, dvd’s, game cd’s, etc.. It does this for all types of media. Best regards, Sandra Pontes Portugal, Lisbon. Have you tried the firmware update? Can I get a solution out of a “simple” update, firmware something I had not even heard of before

Problems with HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC N – Computer Hardware – Club Myce – Knowledge is Power

Best regards, Sandra Pontes Portugal, Lisbon. It does this for all types of media.

All forum topics Previous Topic Next Topic. Now get your disc out hl-ft-st the drive and exchange it for another written disc. I can burn any cd at 24x, no longer have the annoying 10x problem.

My Compaq dates back from no warranty, therefore Contact Email us Tell us what you think. If you upgrade the firmware using dangerous brothers rpc1 upgrade. The weird thing is that when I restart my computer with the CD in it, it will then recognize that there is data on the CD.

Hey, For Compaq users, rw/dvr is a fix. So here goes my illeteracy! Any suggestions will be gratefully received. The other would be to reburn it at a lower speed, some drives are more picky than others. I have this drive on my laptop, is this a dvd burner? Thats just an offhand suggestion.


How can I resolve this problem. I suggest 4x so that you can totally rule out ra/dvd speed should it not work, and use a good quality cdr with good cd-dye. It just spins down and acts as if it is going to eject but then spins back up again and reads the disc.

How do you check if it is a DVD burner?

Also it is region free now. What brand name is the cd that was recorded? If not, you really have a strange hardware problem going on. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type. It helped someone else.

Problem with HL-DT-ST-RW/DVD GCC 4240N

I started “googling” around and have already checked that the drive is compatible with the XP Home Edition I am using, that Hitachi-LG does not give firmware or yl-dt-st updates or support to customers and advises the general public me! Thank you for your help. I applied firmware upgrade with eauto from dangerous brothers and resetted dvd region change but the problem is still same.


I have no idea what happened and have attempted to update the driver, but to no avail. I also tried to upgrade from DELL source.

Once I removed the hardware and reinstalled. Doesnt matter what speed it was burned at previously, just re-burn at a lower speed that of which you will know of, since you will be making this new copy. If everything works fine from there, I suspect a software problem.
