Complicated DVD Error

So.

I've got a LG GSA-4166B, and I was gonna install Battlefield: Bad Company2, but it did not find the disc (neither on my or my dads PC, and both got this DVD-reader/writer so I went into device manager and uninstalled the driver cause I was gonna install the new one I found by googling (GSA-4166B)

However, when I did this I had to restart my PC. What happends now is that I can't, it freeze at "Shutting down"

So I tried unplug the DVD etc, still this error occured. Then I googled this problem and found a solution. However to my current problem - my DVD is showed as "Local Disc: D" in "Computer" Here's a picture: Bildr.no

And in Device manager it says "CD-rom drive" and shows a yellow icon like "Hey, something is missing" ofcourse, driver is missing so I go and update driver and press that I should select manually and now nothing happends, it just continue loading. I also tried doing a system restore, but same here: it just keep loading..

Hope someone can help me. Would be nice to be able to play Battlefield: Bc2 AND have a DVD that actually is working..

Did you try completely uninstalling the driver first instead of hitting Update Driver?

Yes, completly uninstall, which ****ed up the whole computer. However, I managed to do a System Recovery to yesterday by: Unplugging DVD (So it could turn off) and then it worked. So now I got the old driver back, and PC can turn off with the device plugged. However, I tried Cod2 = DVD - game can be read. And now I tried Battlefield: Bad Company2, and that won't be read.

Did you try this?

Quote:
To remove the drivers go to Device Manager » System » ATA/ATAPI Controllers. Here you should see Ultra ATA storage controllers. Right click and select update drivers » Select install hardware from a list or specific location » next » Don't search I will choose the drivers to install » next » You should see "Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE controller". Select and click next. You may need a reboot or you can right click on My Computer in Device manager and scan for hardware changes.

You mean Device manager -> System devices? However, I find no "ATA/ATAPI Controllers" there.

Those 3 other drives, are they virtual drives for mounting disc images (ie Daemon Tools)? If so, the Battlefield 2 disc may have protection that detects this.

EDIT: It DOES have copy protection to detect whether or not it is the original disc.
