RPC1 region-free firmware handles the regioning of the 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. For me the drive runs quieter now with a dvd. I also am having having problems with this player in my compaq evo nv. Maybe that drive works only in the enclosure it was built-in previously. Any suggestions will be gratefully received. Also it is region free now.

Problem with HL-DT-ST-RW/DVD GCC N – Microsoft Community
Maybe that drive works only in the enclosure it was built-in previously. Many thanks by the way for your reply – I have been offline for a whole week! Thank you for your prompt reply. Start your own thread instead – you will also get more people paying attention to your problem that way.
Start with uninstalling the ide drivers in devicemanager, then restart. Anyone offer an address where I can go to download a firmware fix, or does this require something else? Now get your disc out of the drive and exchange it for another written disc.
According to your description, this could be a slimline drive as used in notebooks. But we can tell you now that you have Combo drive. How do you check if it is a DVD burner? Also it is region free now.
Problem with HL-DT-ST-RW/DVD GCC 4240N
Is the drive recognised correctly in device manager? Chewie email me directly if you prefer pchew yahoo.
I can burn any cd at 24x, no longer have the annoying 10x problem. Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
It would be great, if you reported the exact type of the hl-dr-st something like GWA-xxxx. Some 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 dvc to be visible to Nero 6 and it will simply not recognize dvds, have tried various brands of dvds and cdrs, even some cdrs are not recognisable to the drive.
I have no idea what happened and have attempted to update the driver, but to no avail. I also am having having problems with this player in my compaq evo nv. Try this and report back! 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.
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 not, you really have a strange hardware problem going on. It just spins down and acts as if it is going to eject but then spins back up again and reads the disc.
The other would be to reburn it at a lower speed, some drives are more picky than others. Use the eauto, the same one that would be used for Dell. 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. Can you plse send me a link to get a firmware upgrade frfor this drive? Firmware is only available from the computer manufacturer who used that drive for system building. It helped someone else.
Your post is not suitable for this very thread. Hl-t-st region-free firmware handles the regioning of the drive.
Apart from the fact that it is rather rude, it makes the discussion in this thread quite confusing. Thats just an offhand suggestion.
Many Thanks to you all out there. Thanks Bro Vlad I read some of your earlier stuff where you were quoted as having a rpc1 something or rather? How I can fix it???
