The output of dmesg shows you exactly
what drive you have (did you read the messages or not?)"
- Code: Select all
[ 2.459284] ata2.00: ATAPI: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T50L, SR04, max UDMA/133, ATAPI AN
So it is a GSA-T50L. Furthermore, 2 posts ago mintyboy gave you the exact location on where to get new firmware for your drive, but you either ignored his post or did not read it.
i am about ready to say screw it and go back to dual booting
Did you in fact even try the new firmware? If not you're giving up before even trying and you are ignoring all the help that was offered to you in this thread.
