DVD burner stoped working after cloning

Q: DVD burner stoped working after cloning

I have a HP HPE- f i quad core with a TB WD primary and a TB WD secondary that I ve had for about - years and have cloned the primary several times with no problems About - weeks ago I cloned the primary once again with another TB WD only to find that after the cloning the DVD drive stopped writing It actually begins the process but after writing the lead-in it simply sits there and spins heating the disk and of course making it unusable Once this occurs working DVD burner stoped after cloning it usually cannot be stopped by any means and the machine has to be hard rebooted to proceed Since the first cloning operation I have re-cloned the original using three different cloning programs all with the same result as well as cloning to a new TB WD drive with the same results I ve also replaced the DVD drive with two different known good drives one being brand new went through all of the HP troubleshooting procedures uninstalled DVD burner stoped working after cloning the drivers and re-installed them deleted the high and low files from the registry etc with no success The strange thing is that if I use the original hard drive along with the cloned drive I can boot off the original and burn to the same DVD drive with no problem I can also write CD s with both the original and the clone both audio disks and data disks I ve also ran the DVD drive off from one of the other SATA ports on the mother board along with replacing the cable I even took the computer into a computer shop and they worked on it for over days and could not identify the problem To make a long story short this problem is just about ready to get the best of me I ve ordered an external DVD drive believing this will work but I would really like to determine why it is doing what it is doing The cloning should not have caused it but seems to be the only thing that is common to the problem I would really appreciate any incite that you may have nbsp

Preferred Solution: DVD burner stoped working after cloning

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: DVD burner stoped working after cloning

The only suggestion I can think of is some type of burning software is broken with the Cloned OS. If you have any software installed that handles the burning (include Roxio, Creative and all others) Remove them and the Registry files related.

I suggest using Revo Uninstaller as it will automatically search out and tell you whats left over, and let you delete them or save them. I suggest deleting all files/folders and registry items left to ensure they are not somehow causing the issue.

I have a Samsung 52x24x52 CD-RW as well as Easy CD Creator 5. I've been burning stuff to a certain type of disks... TDK brand name and all has gone very very well for me.

Well, lately, with the same disks, my burner doesn't burn into them. It acts like it does, it wastes my time, it makes the noise, the red light showing it's burning is on on the drive.

I take out the CD, try to play/use it, and nothing can read it. It's blank! I can even try to burn something else on it b/c my computer thinks it's a blank!

I haven't recently modified my startup. All my CD utilies and stuff are enabled to boot. It doesn't make sense. Why would it stop working?

I have all the latest patches for everything.

All cables/wires are plugged in snug and correctly.

Thanks for your time.

Tried cleaning the drive? Changing write speed? Will it read discs that already have data on them?

I followed these instructions to get it working :

And a couple of months after I got it working it just stopped working all of a sudden, and the "terminal services" disappeared out of the services manager, and I tried to reinstall in twice and it still will not show up, I don't know what to do besides reformat.

I have windows Xp Home SP2 (I didn't upgrade past that because it works and works better than last time I had sp3, So I'm just going to leave it for now.

Use ultraVNC server and viewer. Works much better and less of a lag on system. I also think you need netframework.

Hello I have a year old PC computer running windows and I recently noticed that the CD-rom on it has stoped working CD-ROM has stopped working I don t use the CD-rom very often it s probably been months since I last CD-ROM has stoped working used it and so I don t know for sure when this problem occurred But today I tried to put a CD in it and the thing wouldn t even open up When I checked in My Computer it wasn t in their either and I think it somehow broke since CD-ROM has stoped working my computer isn t recognizing it I CD-ROM has stoped working opened up the side of the computer and checked inside to see if it somehow came unplugged I jiggled the connection to make sure it was firm and it appears to be plugged in but I m not sure if these things have only plug going into the motherboard or maybe they have a second one for a power source though I didn t see anything that looked like a second plug coming out of it Anyway I m wondering if there is anything I can do from a software perspective to double check to see if my CD drive is indeed broken and it s time to get a new one Thanks nbsp

A:CD-ROM has stoped working

Hey David. CD or DVD?. If it is a CD,I would say right off the bat that you likely have a bad drive since it's been DVD drives only for years now and optical drives do go bad. Any lights on the drive come on at any point?. I would verify that the cables are plugged in properly at both ends, and if no lights at all on the drive (from power on till ready),try one of the other power cables from the power supply and repeat.

Could somebody help me please with my CD/DVD drive as it stopped working for no reason? It rejects every CD/DVD.

It is on a Packard Bell all in one pc. It is running windows 7 home premium.

I attached a portable CD/DVD drive and it reads ok but it will not burn.

I inserted a CD and it says drag your file here to burn; and then it says insert cd to burn. Eh!

Somebody suggest reinstall windows 7, but that sound a bit drastic. I do not know when it stopped working so a restore is not an option.

Could somebody help?

Many thanks


A:CD/DVD has stoped working. I do not know why or when.

hi so you are saying the internal cd/dvd drive does not read any type of disk? it's possible the drive has just failed. but you could try the fixit here. </title> <link href="//" rel="stylesheet" /> <link href="//" rel="stylesheet" /> <link href="//
and for the external drive are you sure the drive is a burner not just a cd/dvd drive? whats the make and model number of the external drive?

Try a restore point perhaps.
Or run full virus scans.
Restore to factory settings.

One should uninstall, not delete a program.
You didn't say what you deleted.
Your post is rather vague.

I got a cd with mp3 music on it. On my mini line it first started skipping and making crumbling sound. Later i tried to rip the music from the cd to computer so i could burn the songs over. But the computer does not recognize the cd, why?

I tried everything, from cleaning the cd, using it on different computer, but nothing. Am puzzled because there are no visible scratches on the cd, no bumb, nothing it looks perfect but does not work.

Please i need help.


A:CD stoped working, not scratched! Need help?

Welcome to TSF....

I would try taking the music cd back to where I bought it and have them try to play it and then they should replace it for you. Sounds like a defective disk to me if it does the same thing on two different computers.

I have a Toshiba laptop and i have a built in webcam. I was able to use Skype and the Webcam worked perfictly. Then my friend went to a website that had games on it that needed a webcam. So he played some of the games using the webcam. Now when i try to skype someone the webcam does not work. There is no video of me there is just a random picture of a plant. I have tryed to look up things that may be the problem. The Skype info said that it can only have the skype application accessing the webcam. So im guessing that the games is what did it. If that is the problem I dont know how to get the webcam back to Skype and off the game website.
PLEASE someone help me!

A:Network stoped working!!! HELP!!!

So by resetting you went back to factory setttings?
Are ALL your pc's on DHCP? Is the default IP factory for your router If so, are you using the default factory logon credentials, and not ones that you customised?
Make sure all software firewalls are turned off.
Do it again from scratch. Reboot pc, reboot router, connect them both. Go to the lan home page (, use factory default credentials.
if you can into the home page, then obviously you shouldn't have an issue customising your settings again.
i reckon that when you got onto the page before, but it told you you had limited connectivity you were possibly looking at a cached webpage and not a live one.
Try connecting it to a different pc as well for set up purposes.

How can I get it working again?

Hi buddy.
First, go to Control Panel - System and Security - System. Your Windows Experience Index is gray or blue?! If it is gray, click on "re-run the assessment." If blue, completely uninstall the ATI Catalyst Software Suite. Reboot Windows. Let the native video driver is installed. Reinstall the ACSS. Reboot Windows. Rerun the Windows Experience Index.
Let us know the results.

my windows apps dont want to open
the store opens shows the brief case logo for a 2-3 seconds and it minimises
when i click on it on it to open it again the same thing happens
and all other apps dont even respond just their icon move a little on the sides to indicate they are clicked
but they dont open at all
i use windows 8 enterprise and it is activated
it happened before
one way to fix it but its annoying is to create new account and on it they work just fine
but the old one dont
i can delete and it and recreate it but then i have to register some of my programs again
i read on the internet about that issue so my resolutin is not the problem UAC is still on
i use windows defender for antivirus
does anyone know any other way to fix this

You may need to do a partial reset to change languageand country/region settings.

From HP Document on Check Papaer / Check Cartridge Lights Flashing

Step four: Perform a partial reset
A partial reset will return user settings to factory defaults. On some models, language and country/region settings are also reset. Perform a partial reset of the product by following the instructions below.
Unplug the power cord from the unit.
Reconnect the power cord into the unit.
When the lights begin to flash, press and hold the On/Resume and Paper Size buttons.
When only the On/Resume light is flashing, release the buttons.
When the On/Resume light is steady, the reset is complete.
Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.
If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue with the rest of the instructions on this page.
If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.

Ok so I bought a Nokia Lumia 830 on Windows 8.1 and my living images worked fine I used insider fast ring to upgrade to 10 couple days later I noticed my living images were no longer living the file info still showes the .Li but no movement very frustrating I looked around online the best I could figure was a problem with the preview build so last night I rolled it all back to 8.1 and pics were live again so I upgraded using upgrade advisor. This time to get the official release and still taking living images tested it quite a bit still live in 10 great then I allowed the anniversary update that came out on the 29th and now no living images still shows the .Li in the file info but pics taken since update are all static dont know what else to do arrg so frustrated

A:Windows Explorer Has Stoped Working . . .

Try booting into Safe Mode by repeatedly pressing F8 as soon as Windows starts to load. If you get in, select Safe Mode with Networking and run some free online scans to see if you're infected: can also search Google for "Trend Micro Sysclean" (without the quotes) and download the file, then use the readme file on the website to download the definitions file - with both of those you'll be able to clean your system.

I uninstalled the value pack and sucess!

>untill it stops working in the near future (next day or so!!!!).

The Fn buttons are controlled by Flash Card Support Utility?
This Flash Card Support Utility can be found under All Programs -> Toshiba
So you need to restart the Flash Cards to get the Fn buttons working again

I usually use my laptop as a tablet pc.
Today, after conecting the tablet to the docking station I saw that the keyboard and touch pad are not working.
The odd thing is that the Toshiba software sees my docking station as conected.
I thought that was a low battery on the dock, and i conected the laptop to power to charge but the power LED on the keyboard was still off.

Another problem is that the pc can?t find the the HDD.
Can you please help me?

Hi guys!

My friend has a strange problem. Couple of days ago he started a computer and after a number of updates and installs he noticed that the e-mail messages in Outlook 2007 stopped showing pictures. Instead of pictures there were just red crosses. Also he noticed that Windows gadgets stopped working properly. You can see both of the problems in the attached pictures.

I have tried many things ... from your Fix for windows gadgets to other things mentioned for Red cross in Outlook 2007. It seems like nothing helps. There is still an option to do a System restore but that is my last option.

Does anyone have an idea?

Any answer is much appreciated!

Thank you!

I recently was asked by my mom to burn her a disk onto a dvd. So on her computer after I take the dvd out it still shows as it being in and when I try to write on the disk it says windows is using the disk please wait. So I do and still nothing. But my main problem is when I tried it on my computer nothing is showing up in the drive. The blank disk doesnt appear no movies I put in nothing. It used to work. What do I do?

First, try emptying the CD Burning cache in:
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CD Burning (you may to unhide folders in Folder options first).

Next check Device Manager and make sure the drives are showing under DVD/CD-ROM Drives.

Next, try the upper/lower filter fix in registry. You can download fix from :

Windows backup is not working since I cloned the O S hard drive Before cloning Backup not working Windows SSD since I did this my system setup was as follows Sandisk SSD as boot drive and a Seagate TB drive as my data and backup drive All backups to the Seagate have worked on a daily basis I bought a new Intel GB SSD to use as a boot drive and have the SSD as my data drive and the Seagate strictly as my backup drive I cloned the using the latest Acronis program that is designed to be used with the Intel drive with no issues that I am aware of The system started no problem and Windows Backup not working since SSD cloning I was able to copy all of my data off the Seagate drive and onto the Sandisk drive When I tried to do a backup to the Seagate drive it failed with the msg 'Windows backup skipped backing up system image because one of the critical volumes is not having enough free space ' From reading other posts of similar issues I checked for viruses and spyware new and or unwanted programs did several defrags of the Seagate drive did a disk wipe of all free space on the Seagate drive I even reformatted the entire Seagate drive and I still get the same error msg I disabled the TB drive hooked up an empty GB drive via USB and tried to do a backup and got the same error message I have very little information on the combined other two drives so space should not be the issue Any suggestions I can try to resolve this issue I really don't fell like starting from scratch to fix this

A:Windows Backup not working since SSD cloning

Have a look at this.
Windows 7 Backup Fails with Erroneous "Insufficient Space" Message and Error Code 0x81000033

This assuming you have a system reserved partition.
But the easiest solution is get free Macrium or another system backup utility, and use that instead of the Win 7 imaging utility.
As you've found out, the Win 7 utility has "issues."

Hey Having a problem with my laptop not booting after cloning working... drive, a CD Recovery not SSD Not after cloning booting HD to an SSD drive I have been googling for Not booting after cloning HD a SSD drive, Recovery CD not working... a possible fix but nothing has worked so far so I thought I would sign up here and see if anyone has experienced similar issues and if there is a possible fix I am running a custom built laptop for music production but my harddrive failed the recovery partition was lost as well as almost all the data on the drive The solution was to buy a new SSD and clone the HDD of my friend's identical laptop everything is identical OS hardware etc The idea was to clone the drive of my friends computer install it in mine and do a factory reset via the recovery partition After cloning the hdd to my new SSD drive my computer won t boot When trying to boot to the cloned SSD I get the message quot Reboot and Select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key quot When following the boot order from BIOS I get the message quot PXE-E Media test failure check cable quot looks like it has something to do with the ethernet controller however this is the last item in the boot list When trying to boot into Hiren's Boot USB the same error message shows up quot reboot and select proper boot device quot Now it is possible to boot into the startup repair cd I created and the windows install disc however after selecting input language it tells me quot This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of windows you are trying to repair Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of windows quot BIOS is recognizing the harddrive and the name of it is shown in the list so it is connected properly I have tried changing the boot order according to guides explaining how to fix this problem but it does not work I am kind of stuck on this now The cloning process seems to be successfull since I checked before I put the SSD in my laptop all folders and files etc was there A fresh install of windows would mean loosing the revocery partition and the ability to do a factory reset and loosing all the optimizations made to the OS If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this I would greatly appreciate it Using windows professional bit the new ssd drive is a Samsung Evo

Ok a question about cloning/ghosting a harddrive.

Now I have customer that has a dell laptop that will like to buy anothe laptop same model basically on ebay so then he can do a exact copy of the current laptop drive like a ghost/cloning then install that image that was created to the new used laptop off from ebay.

Now is this possible if so whats a good program to use? also does the new used laptop from ebay have to be the exact specs hardware components as the cloned drive one? thanks

A:question about cloning/ghosting a working harddrive OS to another same pc questions..

You can use Easeus-Disk-Copy The new laptop would need to be the same model #. You need to have the same motherboard and chipset. You then would take out the new laptops HDD and put it on a USB Adapter and attach it to the old computer. Format (erase) the new HDD and then clone the old HDD to the new with Easeus. After that is done, then put the drive back in the new computer start it up. That should boot normally and have all the files from the old computer. If for some reason the chipset is different and you get a BSOD then boot off of the XP CD and do a Repair Install

A:[SOLVED] Windows Update not working after Cloning Hard Disk!

After doing some digging I found the solution. Since I had cloned the drive, the old AHCI driver wasn't updating Windows with the correct sector size. Updating the AHCI driver with the latest from Intel solved all the issues I was having.

Install the Lenovo Driver First -- Reboot
Lenovo Driver:
Install the AHCI Driver Manually (iaAHCI.inf - Do this in Device Manager) -- Reboot
Intel AHCI RST Driver:
Windows Update = Working
Windows Defender = Updating
Windows Installations = Working
