LG drive - HELP!

Postby tooner19 on Sun Nov 13, 2005 5:08 am

Good day to all, brand new here. Usually I can figure this stuff out, but not today. I just got an LG Super Multi DVD/CD Rewriter. Needless to say, I encountered some problems.

I installed the drive on a Win2k machine. I put a DVD in and closed the tray. Suddenly my monitor turned off. My machine was still on, the cpu light was on constantly. Nothing I did worked. I ejected the media and my computer rebooted. I tried a couple of more times with different cd's and dvd's, same result.

I then installed XP...same issues. The LG is the only drive that I have installed, I have one hard drive running and I have a 400W power supply...which I think would be enough. There were no IRQ conflicts, on either OS. I'm running an AMD 1800 with 512 RAM. Any thoughts from anybody?

Oh, model is GSA-4167b.

Thanks in advance...

I figured it out. I updated the firmware and that seemed to work.
