LG DVD CD RW

hi,

i have a LG dvd cd rw drive ( HL-DT-ST DVD CDRW GCC-4120b) in a Dell
Dimension 8400 and use winXP. the bios recognizes the drive but when in "my
computer" the icon for the cd-dvd is clicked nothing happens and when a disk
is inserted in the the drive the auto-load feature does not start. is the
driver supplied with winXP ok for this dvd cdrw drive? in hardware properties
the driver is ok and the disk drive is recognized as working.

any ideas why the disk drive does not work?

thanks for your reply/s.

And what is the error that is shown .Either on desktop or in Event Viewer or what is shown in Device Manager concerning your DVD\CD drive

I am having the same problem. I have a Gateway Intel Centrino Duo and use
Windows Visa Home. When I also click on the e:\drive for cd-dvd I get
nothing. when I go to device manager it indicates device is working
properly. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the device drivers I have
removed the upper and lowere filters and nothing has changed. looks like
there has been some type of recent download that has caused this to happen.
From what I can tell there has been many posting regarding this issue.

That is quite an old drive. I would suggest that the laser has failed to
then point where it can no longer see the disc.

Unfortunately, the laser has a limited life and is the single most common
failure mode for optical drives.
