Sorry Karan, I started the 2nd thread about what happens when you uninstall a device… but it ended up turning into the same topic too. Take one of your -R Verbatims because those are the only really decent quality media of the three and find a friend with a broadband internet connection and a DVD writer. Perhaps firmware can be upgraded, but if ‘DVD’ doesn’t work you can say goodbye to ‘dvd’ feature that’s all, it’s dead for dvd Create an account or sign in to comment You need to be a member in order to leave a comment Create an account Sign up for a new account in our community.

My computer specs are: Sign up for a new account in our community. A burner just needs to recognize a blank media, especialy dvd, to burn content onto it with the correct writestrategy that is backed up into the firmware.
Must format and restore. Posted June 8, Register a new account. Exit and burn, good luck! This will very nicely test if it is a software or hardware problem. Now that I have update it, it seems to be able to read any non retail disc of any kind, given I havent tried any other discs but this dvdrw brand my room mate gave me.
If i try to burn anything It gives me the burn error that many have been experiencing and I do not know why. Thanks for the advice Karan!
If it does, it obviously means the drive itself is capable of recognising DVD-R discs.

Use your warranty coverage and send it in. Any other suggestions regarding the -R recognition? Not sure what to do but just buy a new one on my own or deal with the problems I am having.

Drivers for HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWAB ATA Device
We are now researching DVD burners so we can spend yet more hl-dt-s to finally be able to do what we had originally purchased our computer setup to do. Hey All, I Just joined because I am pretty much experiencing the same situation.
It works now, well at least the drive reading part. What exactly does this entail and what will this do? I would say, if you found a firmware version that works for you and the media you have without errors… stay put. Already have an account? dfdrrw
A mix of the 3 brands… none of which recognize.
