Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
CD/DVD Drive will not read cd cd/rw or dvd/rw's
\015 I have A LG GSA-H55L 20x Internal Super Multi DVD Rewriter that will not recognise music or data cd and cd/rw, and dvd/rw. It will write cd's and dvd's and play only dvd movies. I open my computer from my desktop and the drive says DVD-RAM Drive. Can anyone help? Thanks\015
Goto the web site of the company that makes the writer and reinstall or update the internal Firmware for that model of writer.
