A problem with my dvd ram drive LG GSA-4163B

  1. help with my LG GSA-4163B, please ...

    my LG GSA-4163B always couldn't read some data DVDRs i burnt ...

    always got the drive reads CD drive and the errors drive is not

    accessible or incorrect function or simply the drive is empty ...

    well i thought that they were damaged somehow (although ther were

    successfully burnt) and used cd roller to recover the data and i

    didn't care that much because it was only a couple of discs ...

    but recently discovered that these dvds were UDF format when i

    accidentally set nero a while ago to burn UDF by default ...

    that resulted in about 70 discs of non readable data and it would take

    me ages to recover it using cd roller and burning them again...

    i tried uninstalling the drive and restarting and installing the

    latest firmware but that didn't help ...

    my OS is an up to date windows server2003 sp2 ...

    anyone could help ,please??

    i would really appreciate it ...
