Many Thanks to you all out there. Your post is not suitable for this very thread. Start your own thread instead – you will also get more people paying attention to your problem that way. Also it is region free now. RPC1 region-free firmware handles the regioning of the drive. Now get your disc out of the drive and exchange it for another written disc.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received. Maybe that drive works only in the enclosure it was built-in previously. When I press the eject button on hl-dt-sr drive it does not eject.
This problem occurred after dismantling the device for a routine maintenance. Use a tool like DiscInfo, and post the summary File, Save. Hll-dt-st bod in wales sold me this dvd rewriter which was in a removable module for Dell Latitude C and had only once written a CD-R, I cant get it to be visible to Nero 6 and hl-dt-wt will simply not recognize dvds, have tried various brands of dvds and cdrs, even some cdrs are not recognisable to the drive.
Chewie email gcc-4240n directly if you prefer pchew yahoo. I suggest 4x so that you can totally rule out burning speed should it not work, and use a good quality cdr with good cd-dye. The drive is not a DVD Writer. I also tried to upgrade from DELL source. You can check the Media Forums here for cd dye suggestions and many many tests already done to save you the work.
If you upgrade the firmware using dangerous brothers rpc1 upgrade. I have this drive on my laptop, is this a dvd burner?

XP automatically sets the driver. RPC1 region-free firmware handles the regioning of the drive.
Problem with HL-DT-ST-RW/DVD GCC 4240N
If everything works fine from there, I suspect a software problem. Thank you for your prompt reply.
It just spins down and acts as if it is going to eject but then spins back up again and reads the disc. Can you plse send me a link to get a firmware upgrade frfor this drive? 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.
How do you check if it is a DVD burner? If not, lh-dt-st really have a strange hardware problem going on. It would be great, if you reported the exact type of the drive something like GWA-xxxx. I read some of your earlier stuff where you were quoted as having a rpc1 something or rather?
Many thanks by the way for your reply – I have been offline for a whole week! How I can fix it??? I applied firmware upgrade with eauto from dangerous brothers and resetted dvd region change but the problem is still same.
Once I removed the hardware and reinstalled. Thanks Bro Vlad I read some of your earlier stuff where you were quoted as having a hl-et-st something or rather? According to your description, this could be a slimline drive as used in notebooks.
HL-DT-ST RW/DVD Rewriter doesnt write dvds – LG burner – Club Myce – Knowledge is Power
There are lots of things you can do to experiment, try the first two I suggested and see what happens, report back, maybe others have the same problem.
What brand name is the cd that was recorded? Have you tried the firmware update? Apart from the fact that it is rather rude, it makes the discussion in this thread quite confusing.
