PLDS DVD+/-RW DC-8A2SH firmware update options don't work on drivers dell page

  • I'm having issues reading blank cd's/dvd's in my drive. AS well as game cd's. To put an example the sims medieval DVD wouldn't work on my drive but worked perfectly on my wife's laptop.

    Hence I'm trying to upgrade the firmware/drivers for my dvd drive (PLDS DVD+/-RW DC-8A2SH on the devices screen) but the options I get when I for to the drivers page are for:

    HLDS

    TSTT

    None work btw. Does anyone know where I can get updated firmware?  

    Thx a lot in advance

  • Have you tried a lens cleaning disc?

  • No, good idea, I'll try that. But it would still be nice to have the updated drivers/firmware

  • I'm having the same issue...where is the driver for this thing?

  • my dvd player wont even read a cd rom now..this sucks

  • so does anyone have an answer?

  • Hi all,

    Same problem here. My PLDS DC 8A2SH doesn't read almost any format and has a lot of problems burning disks. It is perfectly cleaned and set-up. I can't find any firmware for this concrete unit in the whole net and I guess a new firmware could be the only solution to get alive this drive.

    Can anyone help with this issue? Thanks a lot.

  • I found here a lot of PLDS firmwares, but not for this unit:
