LG DVD/CD-RW Disk Read Problem

Hi there,
I had been using this drive (HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4480B ) for long time without any problems. It's a great writer.
Recently I noticed that it doesn't some DVDs which are well read by my other DVD systems and PCs. I downloaded and upgraded its firmware from driver-guide in the hope that it'll be better but no hope. It writes pretty fast, reads the drive it's written but doesn't just read some.
Any clue or better firmware around?
Regards!
Narayan

Hi Narayan. In my experience when a drive starts to have problems with reading disks, there's usually only one effective cure, and that's to replace it. This is a pretty old drive and you can get a good cd/dvd writer for about £20 as an OEM package, or about £30 as a retail boxed version. Replacement is very simple - 2 connectors and 4 screws. click here
