HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4166B ATA Device Drivers

A burner et needs to recognize a blank media, especialy dvd, to burn content onto it with the correct writestrategy that ddvdrrw backed up into the firmware.

Optical drives doesn’t need drivers at all, even to unlock certain features Not sure what to do but just buy a new one on my own or deal with the problems I am having. If i try to burn anything It gives me the burn error that many have been experiencing and I do not know why.

Now that I have update it, it seems to be able to read any non retail disc of any kind, given I havent tried any other discs but this weird brand my room mate gave me.

Again, just my opinion.

Perhaps firmware can be upgraded, but if ‘DVD’ doesn’t work you can say goodbye to ‘dvd’ feature that’s all, it’s dead for dvd I just want my drive to work good as new so I can burn music and stuff.
