DVD-RAM Drive wont burn cd's anymore

Q: DVD-RAM Drive wont burn cd's anymore

I have a Matshita DVD-RAM SW 95735, I have burned many cds buy using windows drag and drop utility. Now when I try it tells me there is no disk in the drive. Also it no longer shows cd record tab under properties and under the registry it dosn't show it as a DVD/CDR drive, but it used to. I have installed a new firmware, unistalled, reinstalled. It will still write to the ram with no problem but this problem has me and my friend totally at a loss. Please HELP!!!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It won't burn anymore. The past 3 dvd's i tried burning. I know I'm doing it right, I've done this a million times, there is something wrong with the drive or something (not wrong with me). I'm burning an ISO. I've tried using Nero 7 Ultra ISO burner and DVD Decrypter to burn. Nero errors out and Decrypter just sits there at 0% with 100% buffer.
The ISO is no longer protected, so it burned correctly. If I burn it on another computer, it works fine.

A:DVD burner wont' burn anymore

Some things you can try:If you recently installed some burning software, uninstall it.Use the fix given on this Microsoft page.Use a different brand of CD/DVD.Clean the laser using one of those drive cleaning kits (or if it is a laptop, carefully wipe the laser with a soft dry cloth).Open the Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc"). Locate the CD/DVD drive, right click on it and select "Uninstall". After it has uninstalled reboot the computer (it will be automatically reinstalled).

my CD drive will not burn any CD, it reads them ok when i put in an audio cd or a driver CD but everytime i try to burn something it fails. Is is very loud when tryin to do this and seems to be reving up and stoppin before it spits out the CD. I have tried burning with Nero, what i always use and also tried WMP and got the same result. Could the disk drive be broke?? is there a command i can run in cmd maybe like chkdsk to check it??

This problem has affected my brothers comp as well, since we both started using Memorex disk?s to burn data and video?s both our drives refuse to burn anymore, (even my dad says his recordable dvd player cant get on with them) it wont work/burn through windows movie maker, Nero 6 and 9, and a few different free burner programmes downloaded from the net, we?ve even gone back to using disk?s that were previously fine, but still no joy
It keeps burn failing at around 50% and spitting the disk out,

Is there a way to sort this, easily, if not I?ll have to ditch the comp, as I?ve been having other problems of late,

Thanks in advance

Hello, I have an Asus N53S laptop, and im having issues with my DVDROM, its a Slimtype BD E DS4E1S. Just recently when trying to back up some data i got a message while using DVD Author Plus, that the "Seleced CD/DVD drive has been disconnected." I tried using other various programs such as Express Burn, and the built iin burning tools through Windows and would get other error messages. I found a Firmware update through Asus' website and that fixed the problem for one more burn, but now its back to the same old errors. I have no problem reading discs of every kind, but writing just isent working. Through the device manager every says its working fine. Im running Windows 7, 64 bit, service pack 1.
 

A:DVD drive will read, but wont write anymore.

Just to put you right, it's not a DVD-ROM drive, it's a DVD-R R/W drive with Blu-Ray reading capability.
A DVD-ROM drive, by definition, cannot write to anything, it just reads CD-ROM & DVD-ROM discs (ROM = Read Only Memory).

Device Manager is a very useful tool but it's not very clever at knowing when a device is physically broken, as I suspect your drive is. Provided the drive is connected up properly, will turn on, & has it's driver installed, Device Manager will be blissfully ignorant and tell you "This device is working properly" even when the device has an internal fault.

A:cant burn CD anymore

Have you tried disabling XP's built-in burning capabilty? I found this on a search:
The problem is then isolated to Windows XP's IMAPI service, which is used for managing CD imaging (ie. burning). Setting it to Manual was not enough, which I had set before. Setting it to Disable got rid of this problem. After that, it was smooth sailing with Nero 6.

A:Cant burn CD/DVD's anymore

Power calibration errors are generally a sign of poor or incompatable media, however it could also be that you are trying to write to the media too fast.

I note it's CD-RW media according to the log, at 8x speed. That is the absolute maximum (8x) for the drive using CD-RW, not a good test.

Try lower speeds, it appears that you have also deselected the maximum speed sensing, that could prevent writing too fast.

Hi

I tried to burn a disc last night through windows media player and it keeps saying to connect a burn device.
I only burned a disc last week and it was working fine then so cannot understand why its saying that

Ive even tried to do it through iTunes thinking it was something to do with the media player but that wont work either! That looks like it's going to do it and says its writing the 1st song, then it cancels it and ejects the disc!

Any idea whats going on??
 

A:Solved: Cannot burn anymore!!

See if anything here helps: http://www.ehow.com/about_5449078_wont-windows-media-player-burn.html

Also, you should consider using dedicated burning software rather than using a media player to do that job.
Dedicated burning software often works when the media player method doesn't.

Contrary to what some people might think, you don't have to use a media player to burn music to CD/DVD.
In fact, doing it with a media player is a bad idea - but many people use that method because WMP and iTunes are already installed so it saves them having to install anything else.

You don't necessarily have to buy burning software (though they are usually better than the free ones). Some free ones here:

I have a windows 8 laptop. It's a few years old. It has always worked great until recently. I cannot burn DVDs or CDs anymore. It plays them fine. It's a TSSTcorp CDDVDW SU-B08AB drive. When I look at the driver it says Windows did not start a related device driver. To learn more, click the Driver tab and then click Driver Details. It says the driver has the current software. If I'm trying to burn a cd sometimes it will burn around half of the songs and then say there's an error. Sometimes it plays those songs and sometimes it doesn't. It did let me make a Blueray DVD once recently that played fine but nothing since then. I've tried multiple programs for burning a DVD or CD and no luck so far. Are there any programs that would clash with the drive? Any suggestions?

I've burned DVD's on my laptop in the past, but now it won't burn onto DVD's anymore. I go through the steps, as usual with Nero, but nothing shows up on the disc afterwards. It does burn photos to CD-R's, but won't on DVD-R's. When I put a blanc DVD-R in the drive, it doesn't see it. It will play DVD's but the audio is jumpy and cuts out, for a split second, every few seconds. The audio seems to act like it's stopping for a milisecond, but it is not noticeable with the visual.

Does this sound like it's missing drivers or has a software problem or a hardware problem?

Can anyone help with this?

A:I broke my CD/DVD/RW- It won't burn anymore

Just a quick follow up to my problem. I tried a lot of different remedies suggested by people in different forums to no avail. Nothing would make my comp read the drive as a burner. I even went to Roxio's Help Pages and tried some of their cures for the problem, but my comp still wouldn't read my CD/DVD/RW as a burner. Hell, I couldn't even use Defragment anymore it was so messed up from old virus attacks.By chance yesterday I was Googling for something totally unrelated and came across an easy cure. I knew my Windows files had to have been either corrupted or deleted by past virus attacks which was my main problem. I was reading some info about a particular virus when I saw the article mention you could use the built-in System File Checker to repair corrupted or missing protected System files. You just open the Command prompt and type in sfc /scannow and windows will scan through the Windows folder and fix or repair the bad files. I now have my burner back once more. I was kinda disheartened that this got no replies, but I thought I'd still post a follow up.

I am having a problem with my cd rom , as in I cannot burn a cd, but it DOES read it, and uploading pics with my card reader as I have always done. I am thinking that something may have been deleted that shouldn't have. I would appreciate any help with this problem. Thanks and have a great night!

It reads boths DVDs and CD and I have no problems in playing them It also recognizes blank discs but when I try to burn them tghe driver will eject the disc and say the burn failed or give different error messages. Sometimes aftre trying to burn a disc a couple of times the driver freezes and will only open so I can get the blank disc out if I reboot the computer. I have 1ClickDVD Copy Pro, Copy to DVD and DIVx player and all of them show the same problem. I have already re-installed the driver and the problem still persists.

All of a sudden when I view the folder that my .ISO file is in I get a Windows Explorer error, I tried deleting it and the error doesn't show up anymore. I put the image on my computer again and same error shows up, it's the error where it just asks if you want to send the report to Windows..

It's weird, I don't know whats going on but it's getting pretty annoying. When I try to burn the image the same error message pops up. I've tried this with different types of .iso files and burning programs.. so .. does anyone know whats wrong? I thought it was a spyware problem so I ran Adaware and Spybot and still no luck..

Any help would do, Thanks

Question in messag i use the system image The whole point of even me using the system image would be in the event i get a virus and i just can't rid of it or I just really wanna be sure its gone So i use the system image to delete everything and restore only what was on the system image So my question is do you think if be the safer bet to just store the system image on none-rewritable cds Perhaps this is not very convenient as i would need more than probably cds but would it be safer and would it let me install it on more than cd I think the system image is about gbs So i may need up to cds to store gbs each going from part to part Is it going to let me do that Oh and i just might make a back up on my external drive as just as emergency back up in the given case one or all my cds don't fully work or should one out of ever fail

A:System image burn to external drive or burn to cds? Question in messag

Hello Trent,

It would be best to create the system image on a HDD instead. A CD/DVD is less reliable to restore from, and more expensive for how many you would need.

You can do what's in the NOTE box at the top of the tutorial below to keep multiple copies of system images on the same HDD. This way you can create a system image backup that you know is clean, rename the backup folder to keep it so new system images will not replace it. Just repeat this every so often to have a updated system image that you know is clean.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

My Internet explorer 6 wont work any more. Instead whenever I try to fire it up it comes back with an error message "the application failed to initialize properly(0xc0000005).Click on OK to terminate the application" If I start in safe mode it works ok. I reinstalled windows 2000 and it rolls back to IE5 which will work ok. As soon as I reinstall IE6 up comes the error message again. A trawl through the net shows that the error message is not confined to problems with IE6 but can affect other packages. Can anyone help?

my lil bro was tryin to install wc2 and he for sum reason thought that to do that u needed to uninstall starcraft. It was running fine before w/ no lag or anything but when i try to play it by puttin in the CD my comp keeps freezing. it unfreezes for a lil bit but when i click on sumthing after that it freezes again. I finally got to the task manager and ended the task along w/ all the other processes that werent necessary i had running. Then my comp worked again but when i went to programs under the start bar it said that my sc was installed already, but when i clicked on it the "searching" window w/ the flashlight thingy came up. that went on for a while but i got nuthin.
can any1 tell me the problem
thats the only game i can run other than CS 1.5 on my pitiful comp.

 

A:starcraft wont run anymore

When you say "it said that my sc was installed already", do you mean that the icons for SC were in your start menu\programs? Because even if thoes icons are there it doesnt mean the program is installed. You, or someone, could have manually removed SC from your C: dive and that would not have deleted the files in your start menu\programs.

Your computer freezes when you put in your SC CD in because your CD-Rom dive might be getting old and the laser can not read the disc anymore.I cant be certain about this but its an idea.

If you do get your cd dirve to read the disc try reinstalling SC.

I am running XP pro and the integrated cd burning ability has never worked. As a result I have been using Nero, Roxio and WMP. I have the earliest version of XP pro but have done all the updates to no available.I also own 2 different burners so I know the hardware is good. Any other XP box I have ever used, home or pro has never had this issue. Any suggestions appreciated.
P.S. I have made sure that under properties on the cd burner that the enable cd recording on this drive box is checked.

i had a problem like this on my laptop..... right click on the music that you want to be copied to cd and then scroll down to "copy to cd"(you might not have it) and click on it. by defalut, it will take you either nero or wmp and from there on, you will know what to do ! !

A:wont burn to dvd-r

Hello,
Welcome to TSG forums.
Have you tried using a cleaning disk on the optical drive? It is possible that it is just dirty (dusty).
I imagine someone with more knowledge will stop by and give other suggestions.

Hi, i have a DVD rewriter in my pc and if i want to copy anything to disk (folders,music or video) it will only perform this if i put a DVD disk in it, if i put a CD in it, it tells me "unable to perform format" so i at the moment i am restricted to using DVD's to copy/burn onto.

I only have media player 11 installed but dont know how to tell it to brun to cd as well as DVD.

Hope you ca help.

A:CD wont burn

Hi,

You might want to try one of the free Open Source burning programs. There is ImgBurn, CDBurnerXP and Burn4Free. If they fail I think it's your burner. I have a feeling though one of them will work or at least give you enough info on the 'fail' for you to find out.

Good luck,

Adrian

P.S. We use Roxio here at work but I don't use it. I use ImgBurn for all my needs and am fine with it. It I was gonna make an audio CD I'd use CDBurnerXP which is also on my computer. They all work wonderfully.

If you ripped the songs from a commercially made music CD or a finalized, burned CD, you can not burn anything back to the same disc.

A:DVD wont burn

It's possible the laser is burned out. You may need to replace it.

But to be sure it is not a software problem, you might try burning with a different operating system that will boot from CD or DVD, like Ubuntu or:
Parted Magic disk partitioning, PC repair, and file recovery tool (Bootable CD or USB image)
If you prefer a bootable USB key, download and run Linux Live USB Creator. Choose the Parted Magic distro, and it will download it and automatically create a bootable USB key.

This CD (or key) contains many useful tools. You can partition, recover files, recover lost partitions, make disk images (by several different methods), transfer files between media, scan for viruses (It can serve as an Alternative Trusted Platform for search and elimination of rootkits and bootkits), examine and benchmark hardware, access the internet, and much more.

Hi can anybody help me? I have a Nec ND 3530A dvd rewriter which has version 2.01 firmware. I have been using it for ages to burn cd and dvd with no problem. I was using Maxell and Phillips dvd+rw and everything was fine. When I ran out of those I brought some Memorex dvd+rw which burned ok but when watched back on my dvd player they kept skipping and finally freezing. So I thought I would buy some more Phillips ones as they had worked before. But they started to do the same on playback as the Memorex. I know there is nothing really wrong with the drive as when I use the old disc's again they play fine in my dvd player. I am using windows xp. Please can anybody suggest what this might be. Thanks.
 

A:Wont burn some dvd+rw please help

A very quick Google suggests that there is later firmware available for your drive. Check on the NEC website to see if there are any official downloads and, if so, whether the issues which they address are actually relevant to your problem.
The ND3530A was stated to be capable of burning DVD+RW at 8x. If you're burning at the maximum speed, trying dropping it down a notch or two. It obviously takes longer, but slower-burnt disks seem to perform better and for longer.
Also, do you have to use RW disks? Try some single-use DVD+Rs.
I always use DVD-Rs but I've found very few brands to be consistently reliable from batch to batch, especially in the long term.
Finally, you'll find the experts over on the Multimedia forum.

Try burning the CD's with another program like Nero or Roxio. I wouldn't even consider installing RealPlayer on my computer let alone use it for burning CD's.

Also make sure that you burned an Audio CD and not an MP3 or other CD.

My Asus Q550LF crapped out on me. I was browsing when a whole bunch of black rectangles appeared on my screen, about an inch long. I restarted my computer thinking it just froze or something. I could occasionally get to the desktop page if I unplugged the charger but now it doesn't even turn on. It'll make one beep when I push the power button but that's it. What might the issue be and is it gonna be expensive? Because this computer has been one of the worst I have ever owned and I would just scrap it or something if it might end up being costly.
 

A:Laptop wont turn on anymore

How old is it? It sounds like it could be a multiple of hardware failures including the motherboard. The black rectangles sounds like what we call video card artifacting which means the video card is dying. But the fact that it is not even booting up could point to a failed hard drive. Again, it could be anything.

Asus is known for poor customer service but you could try giving them a call.

Do you know anyone who can do some diagnostics on it? I certainly would be checking out the hard drive.

E.g. for chrome a debug file shows up, rainmeter doesn't start at all and I can't even open start8. I did not change any settings since then, so it must be windows 8 updates which cause this problem.

A:my burned dvd's wont work anymore

From what I have learned in studying the compounds used to make DVD-R/+R disks vs DVD-RW/+RW disks, I would be willing to make an educated guess that it is the fact that you are using the RW media. It really is a media that is intended to be used for backup purposes of large files and "viewed" only occasionally. The stand-alone DVD player is not as forgiving with its laser, processor, etc. as the DVD burner in your PC with respect to accuracy of the burn on the disk and being able to read it. Go the site www.howstuffworks.com and look up how DVD burners work. It will give you some good insight into why you may be having this problem. Regardless, though, stick with the DVD-R/+R media for your movies that you intend to keep.

If it won't work with the pci card put back in I would say that it must be something else. Your BIOS uses a generic driver and should be able to display itself no matter what you are using. If you find out that it is a driver problem you might just want to stick the hard drive in another computer with the internet and load the drivers on.

I recently had to replace my harddrive and in doing so, i had to reinstall most of my programs. i reinstalled my easy cd creator, and now it doesnt work. im pretty sure i didnt do anything wrong during the installation, but i cant figure out why it wont burn. when i put a cd in to burn, everything is normal...it says its burning each track and at the end, says that my cd has successfully been completed. it no longer gives me the option of finalizing the cd so when i take the cd out of my tower and try to play it, there it no sound. the tracks seems to be on the cd because it counts the time of each track and then moves on to the next one. it just wont play the cd, either in my computer or my player. please help!!! its starting to drive me crazy!

A:DVD-RW wont burn dvds

Can you burn a data disk on DVD? If you are trying ot backup movies then it is the copy protection that is causing the failure. another thing that can cause failures is the Burner operating in PIO mode instead of DMA. you can check what mode the burner is using in device manger under IDE ATA|ATAPI Controllers. look under the advanced tab on the channel the drive is on.

A:Omfg!!! It Wont Burn!

Things like the O/S in use, the burning application, the exact error you receive would really help in determining the cause of the problem...

HP Pavilion 8662C CD-ROM MITSUMI CR-48XATE WILL NOT BURN ANYMORE. HOW DO I FIX THIS?
 

A:Burner wont burn

Welcome to Tech Guy Forum

1.
Which version of Windows have you?
RIGHT click "computer" or "my computer"
Left click "properties"

2.
When did the problem begin? Have you EVER had a CD Burning capabilities? If yes, when did the problem begin?
Can you associate the onset of the problem to the addition or removal of hardware or software, to include an update to Windows or your antivirus program?
3. I would like to see what you have in Device Manager.
RIGHT click "computer" or "my computer"
Left click "manage".
On the right, left click the "+" to the left of CD / DVD devices.
Maximize the screen.
On the left, left click "device manager".
Take a screen shot.

4.
Also, I would like a screen shot of your device's properties, recording tab
Open "computer" / "my computer"
RIGHT click your optical drive.
Left click "properties"
Left click the "recording" tab.
Take a screen shot.

How to create a screen shot.
Creating a screen shot requires:
1. a keyboard with a key labeled "Print Screen". This may be abbreviated "PrtScn", "PrntScn", or some other variation. It is usually to the right of the F12 key
2. a destination program. Microsoft WordPad, and Paint, which are built into Windows 95 and beyond, as well as Microsoft Word, not a part of Windows will suffice. My favorite is Paint, because it provides the greatest versatility. Unfortunately, Paint saves images, by default, as bitmap files [ .bmp ], which are very large files. Paint also provides editing features. I do not recommend using Paint unless you are familiar with all of Paint's features.
2.a. To open Word
left click "start"
left click "programs" [ or "all programs" ]
left click "Microsoft Word".
2.b. To open WordPad
left click "start"
left click "accessories"
left click "WordPad".
2.c. To open Paint
left click "start"
left click "accessories"
left click "Paint".
3. Press the "PrtScn" [ or similar button ] on your keyboard.
4. Open the destination program [ see # 2 above ].
5. Maximize the screen of the destination program.
6. Left "edit" across the top.
7. Left click "paste".
8. Save the file to your "Desktop", "My Documents", or other location of your choice.
8.a. If using Paint, save it as a .jpg / .jpeg.
Left click "file"
Left clicks "save as".
Near the bottom, where it says "save as type", left click on the down pointing arrow.
look for jpeg or jpg.
Left click on jpeg or jpg.

Come back to this forum & thread.
Left click the button "go advanced".
Left click the button "manage attachments".
Browse to the location of the file.
After you have found the file, left click the button "upload".
When finished, left click "close window".
Left click the button "submit reply".

A:DVD burner wont burn

Os?

Some DVD burners require windows xp, but if you have xp try upgrading the drivers/firmware. Also if the cd has copyright on it nero will not burn it!

A:got a dvd burner but wont burn

power calibration error.. i havent seen that in a few years..

on old hp cd-rw drives this was a symptom of a failing drive. i think it meant that the laser was not able to write to the media....

i would try 1. different brand media....make sure you are getting the correct media format DVD-r DVD+r DVDRAM etc....

clean the dvd rom.

did you purchase this as a new or used drive?

my opinion without having you try anything from previous experience with CD-RW drives is you drive may be defective/going defective.

Also look here..
http://www.pioneeraus.com.au/computer/faqs/faq_22.html

it gives a brief description of calibration error and a suggestion of trying different media types.......
from all of the searching via "google" it seems that most of the power calibration errors occur do to poor quality media, so my initial thoughts of a defective drive may be inaccurate....

conclusion try diffent media.

Ive burned iso's 1000 times ive back up harddrives and everything under the sun. And Now I want to burn a ISO onto a disc and evey time I click onto nero my pc reboots or if I do get it to runn it tells me the ISO is empty. I tryed installing the newer version of nero 6.0 and I tryed going back to the 5.5 but no matter what I do it wont run.

I went on to the nero web site and read the help me files and found out that nero like to runn on its own separate IDE cable so I change that and made that to master and it still reboots when I runn the program..

Ive never had this problem before and now I can runn the program I have a yamaha 24 speed cdr / im thinking that mybe one of microsofts hotfixes did this..
