DVD drive isn't being recognized by burning software

Q: DVD drive isn't being recognized by burning software

I just built a computer. My dvd drive is a Lite-On ATAPI iHAS124 B ATA Device. i can use it to read discs and it seemed fine till i tried to burn a dvd with windows dvd maker. It cant find a DVD burning drive. I tried different programs with the same results. I went into the device manager and device properties, and under its general properties in "device status" it says "A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)". I have gone to the Lite-On site and looked for its drivers to download and the closest i could find was iHas120. Ive tried looking on other websites but have had no luck. I am running Windows 7 64bit Home edition. Hope someone can help. i know its dvd+r rewriteable drive, it says so right on it.

A:CD-R: driver not recognized by burning software

I would suggest trying to see if Nero will be able to burn.
Checking the DMA should not wreak havoc with your system. Acctually should help with burning session ( unloads some of the CPU time ). But then again it's win98 so it could wreak havoc ( as in , upon reboot win98 might not "see" it).
If you used to have a CD Rom before you installed the burner, you might wanna take a look at the autoexec.bat and config.sys files. Remove any entries pertaining to the old cd rom. Reboot and see.

Hi everyone,
I recently had a problem with both my CD and CDRW drives that apparently was caused by uninstalling some burning software. Microsoft said to delete some registry entries, all was working great, or so i thought.
I havent tried to burn anything since then, until now. I opened up SonicStage Simple Burner for my Sony ATRAC-3Plus discman and it informed me i didnt have a cd recorder, which i do. i went to system under control panel, and it isnt recording a fault. I also tried easy cd creator 5, also did not recognize there is a burner. It can read the disks fine.
Any help would be great, thanx

I just rebuilt an old system using Windows 7 Home Premium after using WinXP pro for many years. The primary hard drive is WDC 150 Mg and Win7 is installed and updated to current with SP1. I dropped a second WDC hard drive in, formatted and was going to use it for a 2nd backup unit. Both of these are sata. Both hard drives are recognized by Disk Management but when I select Computer on the start menu ONLY the primary 150 Mg drive is recognized. If I plug in an external drive, both Computer and Disk Management recognizes the external drive. How do I have Win7 recognize my backup WDC drive so I can use it.

Thank you

Set it as follows:

Primary Master -----> Main Boot HDD

Nero Burning ROM crashed during burning and now my DVD drive is unusable. I cannot open the drive, I cannot shut down the computer because it says "Waiting for DVD Drive D:" and the drive runs like it is still burning despite the program doing the burning is no longer open. It isn't even in any process. What can I do to make the drive stop?

A:Nero Burning ROM crashing caused perpetual burning from DVD Drive

Go to Task Manager...shut the system down from there.
Turn system off....hard shutdown if necessary...disconnect the optical drive.
Sounds to me like it's a hardware problem moreso than a software problem if you cannot manually open the drive.

Hello all

My dell Latitude D610 Win XP (SP3 Ie8 etc all up to date) doesn't recognize my Firewall (Sunbelt Kerio) or my Antivirus software (Avira) & of course keeps letting me know with an icon/bubble that I haven't got them installed when they are indeed both running. So having stopped the warnings fom xp I have to click on the Antivirus software update button my self as it doesn't get updated otherwise. Before installing the above software (firewall & Antivirus) I had Comodo internet security & that would not auto update & even failed when trying to manually update which is why I tried reinstalling Comodo - with no improvement & finally went for Sunbelt & Avira.

Anyone got any ideas?

i recently installed Picasa from google and this allows me to make gift CD roms of my pictures. Does this then mean that I have rewriting software somewhere in the bones of my computer or does Picasa have it's own inbuilt software to be able to do this.

If it is the latter, is there any free download software that i can access to burn CDs. It has to be spyware, adaware etc free.

Is there freeware or shareware software that will allow me to burn .avi or DivX files to a DVD that will then play in the standard players?

Also, if I don't go that route, what must I convert the .avi or DivX files to in order to be able to play on a standard player?

I really enjoy using WinX DVD, and it's free, and surprisingly fast. ( I had another free program (can't remember which one) and for some reason the finished product had severe quality issues. As the movie played the audio and video became seriously out of sync. As to the question of surfing the net, or worse watching videos, that should be strictly verboten, IMHO. Your computer need every ounce of CPU processing power and every byte of RAM that you have for the task at hand. Maybe you could wipe the dust off of your Playstation and settle in for a couple of hours of gaming. Good Luck!EDIT: There is no need to quote the entire OP verbatim...TYMG

I just got a Dell laptop with a dvd/cd burner and tried to install my Roxio burning software and kept receiving the message about "no drive is enabled, please enable a drive". I uninstalled Roxio and tried googling a solution and found that Windows 10 came with burning software and showed how to use that one. It worked, but I just do not like it. The thing is I would like to uninstall that one and install my Roxio favorite. How do I find this one that is installed and can it be uninstalled?? It is not listed in Programs and Features for uninstalling. Why on earth would the drive be able to see that burning software but not the one I want???!!! Please, if anyone knows how to get rid of it, for the love of all that is decent, please let me know! Thank you!

What software are you using?

If you are using CD-R's, once you burn something to it and end the session, you can no longer write anything more to it. It is usual to create a number of "coasters" when first learning how to run these things.

But if you'd like an excellent Nero-clone for burning that is free, try CDBurnerXP Pro:

The built in CD writing utility in Windows-xp seems to have a draw back. It seems that a CD can be written to only in one session. After that, whatever the total size of the files that was written, no more can be written to it on a subsequent session; 0 free space is reported.

Is there a way to get around this feature so that more content can be added to the CD till it really is full? If not, could someone kindly tell me about commercially available CD burning software which is good, can erase content from rewritalbe CDs, but is less than $20.00?

A:Burning software

Both drives will work with Nero and both will work with Roxio. Nero and Roxio both do pretty much the same thing, but there can be conflicts having both of them on the same machine.

So pick the one you like the most and uninstall the other. If you're going to be burning DVDs, I'd lean towards Nero.

Does anyone know where I can get some burning software that will burn across a peer to peer network. Since I have bought my burner I have upgraded to win 2k and the software that come with the burner no longer works and the new software they have to replace it does not burn across the network. My burner is a hp 8200 internal.

A:burning software

Most burners will warn (if capable) of burning across a network as the data stream may not be steady enough for the burner. If the data does not come fast enough, the CD will be worthless. It is advisable to copy the data to a local drive for burning.

Also i purchased some phillips DVD-R discs hopefully they will work in a normal DVD player...Are these good discs for that?
Lastly my computer has been running kind of slow lately and i want to get some more memory for my computer but i'm not sure what kind to get or if i can even add more memory..I have a dell dimension desktop 8200 (not sure if it s 400 or 533 mhz fs bus) is there any way i can figure this out.

also is it possible to burn ps2 discs....just wondering???

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

A:what software do i need for burning DVD's

Hi, and welcome.There are a number of programs that will work with DVD's - Nero is commonly bundled with the burners, and is usually highly recommended. Your Phillips disks should work fine. I've never looked into burning PS2 disks.If I were going to replace memory, the first thing I'd do is check the memory chips on the computer. Many of the chips have a large sticker that tells the size and speed of the memory. If they don't, you can usually get a magnifying glass and find a number on one of the small chips that can be searched on Google.Seems as if a lot of Dells usually use PC2100, but I haven't seen all of them. However, here's a site that guarantees their memory is compatible with your computer.4allmemory siteThe site says PC800, so it must be an older Dell.Remember to use Electrostatic Discharge precautions when handling memory or anything inside your computer. Turn it off, pull the plug, and either use a wrist strap or ground yourself to the case or large metal object to remove static electricity from your body before handling the memory. Don't be walking across the livingroom carpet with memory in your hand. Keep it in the wrapper until you use it.Make sure you line the memory up with the notch in the right direction and that it's completely seated and the clips are closed.Here's a site that advises on copying Sony disks:PSXtuneIf you want to make archive copies of your own DVD's, you'll need to decrypt and shrink them. DVD Decrypter has been removed from the internet, but you may still be able to find a download site somewhere. There is also DVD43 which decrypts on the fly. DVD shrink is still available. There are legal issues about whether you can make copies even for your own use, just so you know.

is there any dvd burning software that allows you to make your own menus and such? i tried nero but it gave me problems and wouldnt allow me to add some files (reasons unknown)


A:DVD burning software

Where to start,where to start. Well there's Adobe Premier Elements, Roxio has offerings, Pinnacle, Arc Soft, and DVD Movie Factory, to name a few.

Nero tries to be all things to all people, but it is the worst movie editing software I've ever seen.

What Nero does have going for it, is that it can transcode almost any file format.

I don't do movie editing per se very often, but the few successes I've had have been with DVD movie factory. The GUI is something the Nero can only dream about.

The programs weakness is that it seem to be unable to shrink a file to fit a DVD. The work around for me is, edit with Movie Factory, then shrink and burn with Nero Recode. I've never used DVD Shrink, but I'm guessing this would be useful for that purpose, plus it's free.
