CD / DVD Slimtype DVD A DS8A4S in Y560

Hello !

 

I've a problem with my CD Deivice, some old Game cd's it will not open, for example C&C Generals and some other ones.

The problem is with Win 7 and Win XP (i build a twice boot system). The CD's are working in my old notebook very fine, there are not scratches or so. I find some other people in the net, who has te same problems, but like me no solution.

 

Hope now you can help me, is there a newer firmware avaiable than the JL61 ???

 

Thanks and BR

 

Chris

found firmware ( at dell.com ) but i don't know if it's new and/or gona work.

warning: use it on your own risk. 

 

this thread may help.

 

have you tried to remove/replace the drive? could be loose cable or/and lense issue.

i suggest you to contact lenovo support line.

There are only some old cd's that doesn't work, the newer ones make no probs. I think, I will take a call to Lenovo tomorrow...

 

Thanks, I will come back.

 

Maybe, I store the dell firmware... and test it...

it's normal if there cds are more than two years old.

Hey, these are original ones, for example the C&C Generals Game, original CD's. Maybe it is an problem with the copyprotection on this discs and the cd/dvd device.

 

I see that the Slimtype DVD A DS8A4S seems to be a Liteon product, I wrote them an email, perhaps they have an idea...

 

The firmware from Dell looks to old for me.

 

Thanks and BR
