DVDRRW GWA-4164B will not read DVD

Postby OleLauHolst » Mon Feb 03, 2014 13:38

On my Scaleo P , motherboard GA-8S6-49M ; I have a HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4164B DVD reader/writer.
Originally it came with firmware release 1.03.
When trying to upgrade the desktop from Win XP to Windows 7, I discovered that the DVD device cannot read a dual layer DVD.
After some googling I found that Fujitsu has release a newer firmware , rel. 1.05 , for this device that might remedy the reading issue.
Upon installing this newer firmware release I unfortunately find that the upgrade doesn't solve the issue.
I can read and write CD but not DVD.
I see elsewhere that HP has released a version 1.10 but I also read that one should stick to the Fujitsu provided firmware releases?
Is there a newer Fujitsu based firmware release that solves this issue? :(
