HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T50N

Recommended Posts

I'm having an Acer Aspire 5930G Notebook with this drive built-in.

The drive is not even found by CDBurnerXP ... it's simply not listed, so I'm totally unable to use it. :(

The drive itself works correctly with Nero and the Vista Burning plugin. So it's not defect. :!:

Hello all,

I have the same problem on a laptop Packard Bell Laptop Easynote TN65 , the dvd drive is also a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T50N .

The microsoft support solution doesn't work for this issue ! :(

It seems that a lot of people have troubles with this drive on different laptops (Asus, Packard Bell etc...) so please could someone remove this model from the "compatible drives" list (http://cdburnerxp.se/fr/testeddrives?lang=en)

I am having the same problem. My computer is a Toshiba QOSMIO and it wont read discs. It has a symbol like this :!: over its picture when you go into System-Device manager-DvD/CD-ROM drivers+.

It also has this comment when you go into its properties.

*Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware.

The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)*

What has happened and how can it be fixed?

If you know please let me know.

Thanks.

This is the worse driver ever!!!!! same problem here and i cannot even connect an external drive cause it also shows up code 39, in order to fix it i have to pay an additional $25 through this support thing online and i don't think is fair cause so many of us are having the same problem and this should be free but you all know what is all about......$$$$.

Same problem here too, seems like this drive has major compatibility problems.

It doesn't work with CDBurnerXP or Adobe Audition 3. AA3 cannot 'see' the drive to extract CD audio - although it works great though with an old Artec external drive connected to same notebook via an IDE to USB converter cable and seperate power supply. Not a permanent option though, it sounds like a Chinook Helicopter taking off when I am trying to rip my CD audio.

You really couldn't make this kind of farce up could you.

I tried the firmware update to RR07 should I go to RR09? Not convinced it will solve the problem, but worth a try I suppose.

Manufacturer of this unfortunately common drive needs a rocket up them - if you can find them.

LG ? Goldstar? tried them all, clearly no loyalty to customers, unless someone out there can prove me wrong......Please??

I believe the HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T50N ATA DEVICE is best ripped out and replaced, any suggetions on a notebook chasis drive that will fit my brand new Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Notebook Pi 3625.

I haven't got the time or the energy to start a Fujitsu Siemens support ticket, I learned long ago, if it don't work trash it and buy a new one. Saves years in time.

This drive is a bad egg, but I am very happy to be proven wrong by anyone out there with a brain the size of Russia and a leaning towards the specialist subject of DVD CD ROM Drives.

Thanks.

Hiya,

Bear with me as I'm not the most technically gifted person around but...

I bought an Asus F50SV a few months back. A friend of mine looked up the reviews and commented on it having a Blu-Ray drive which I hadn't noticed. But pretty much every online spec I've seen for the F50SV mentions it. And herein lies the problem...When I pop a BD disc in, the drive can't read it. I installed Nero Infotool which says that the GSA T50N isn't Blu-Ray compatible.......so I guess I'm wondering if anyone can confirm that for me.

Thanks in advance...

Spoderman

p.s. It was bought in onoff but the model no longer appears on the website so I can't tell if it was listed as having a BD drive.

Hope this will help

So what`s the solution für AMD Based Chipset ?? I guess the Intel Storage Manager won`t work here.

Trying to use BurnerXP on a Toshiba Satellite A300 Athlon X2 Win7 32 bit and the LG GSA-T50N Drive (RR09) ...

Greetz, Matt
