Start with uninstalling the ide drivers in devicemanager, then restart. It does this for all types of media. XP automatically sets the driver. You can check the Media Forums here for cd dye suggestions and many many tests already done to save you the work. Thank you for your prompt reply. Use the eauto, the same one that would be used for Dell.

I applied firmware upgrade with eauto from dangerous brothers and resetted dvd region change but the problem is still same. XP automatically sets the driver. Have you tried the firmware update? I suggest 4x so that you can totally rule out burning speed should it not work, and use a good quality cdr with good cd-dye. It does eevice for all types of media.
Try this and report back! For me the drive runs quieter now with a dvd.
Problem with HL-DT-ST-RW/DVD GCC N – Microsoft Community
I can burn any cd at 24x, no longer have the annoying 10x problem. Once I removed the hardware and reinstalled. When I press the eject button on the drive it does not eject. Thank you for your prompt reply. Also it is region free now.
I have no idea what happened and have attempted 4204n update the driver, but to no avail. How I can fix it??? How can I resolve this problem. Any suggestions will be gratefully received. It helped someone else. Do you have another solution for this problem. If you upgrade the firmware using dangerous brothers rpc1 upgrade.
Problem with HL-DT-ST-RW/DVD GCC 4240N
Hey, For Compaq users, there is a fix. I also am having having problems with this player in my compaq evo nv. The other would be to reburn it at a lower speed, some drives are more picky than others. 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.
Thats just an offhand suggestion. What brand name is the cd that was recorded? Start with uninstalling the deevice drivers in devicemanager, then restart.
The weird thing is that when I restart my computer with the CD in it, deviice will then recognize that there is data on the CD. This 4240 occurred after dismantling the device for a routine maintenance. If everything works fine from there, I suspect a software problem. How do you check if it is a DVD burner? It just spins down and acts as if it is going to eject but then spins back up again and reads the disc.

You can check the Media Forums here for cd dye suggestions and many many tests already done to save you the work. Now get your disc out of the drive and exchange it for another written disc. I also tried to upgrade from DELL source.
I have this drive on my laptop, is this a dvd burner? 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.
