    What DVD drive is this?

    I HAVE looked on Google; I've looked through my paperwork; I've looked on the Device Manager listing.

    I cannot find the brand of my DVD drive.

    The Device Manage gives me back "HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GSA-H60L ATA", as does my paperwork.

    How the heck do I find the mfg. for this?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    So the drive is an HP? 'Cause they don't "own" all the hardware that's in this machine -- hd's are Hitachi's for example.

    <hr>So the drive is an HP?<hr>
    I didn't say that. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> I saw a download for it on HP's web site and thought you might be able to grab that file and use a hex editor to find the copyright notice.

    Re: What DVD drive is this?

    If you Google on just the part number (GSA-H60L), what do you get?

    Something that suggests Hitachi-LG perhaps?
    (As in HL-DT-ST = <big>H</big>itachi <big>L</big>G - <big>D</big>a<big>T</big>a - <big>S</big><big>T</big>orage...)

    Of course, you could always just pull it out and see what the manufacturer's sticker says...

    Chuck,
    I think Leif has hit it spot on.

    Leif:

    I had thought that the part number was HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GSA-H60L ATA, which brought up Nada.

    And, quite frankly, the LAST thing I ever want to do is star pulling apart the system... unless I must. Bad eyes and the coordination of a drunk turkey make hardware my least favorite thing to delve into hands-on.

    Thanks.

    Re: What DVD drive is this?

    I have a device with a similar name: HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H22N on one of my PCs. It's made by LG.
    My Dell Vostro PC has a DVD R/W drive named HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H73N, but it doesn't handle RAM drives.
