Re: I think my burner died

Is the device new? Updated recently? Any changes at all? If there were any changes lately or the device is new there might be compatibility problem, try installing new driver If the device just stopped working and its not new enough for warranty Take it to fix or try (if you know how) cleaning the laser eye . The easiest way to see if the burner is the problem is to hook it up to another computer and see if it still wont work. Good luck

I'm borrowing a Sony VRD-VC10 to burn DVD's of some old videotapes. The first 7 discs went just fine, but now the device refuses to recognize that a disc is inserted. It also now makes a...

It could have just been your wrong time to borrow it. It could just be dirty... Try a CD/DVD cleaner.... That's about all you can hope for. Other than that let it cool down if it has been in constant use. Repair would be too costly, replacing would be the last step. If it's new it might be under warranty. If it's old it may have had too much use and died. Sorry to hear it!

GSA-4167B hmmm.. thats an old drive... i believe you past it product life (means that you writer can not recognize correctly new modern media such dvd disks.
Reports are: that your drive is able to write on DVD+R Double layer 3.3x-8x (CAV).
Please be sure that your writing speed is between 4x-8x (my favorite speeds for quality DVD disc burning)
Since the drive have already some writing issues... and as you say that it fails on all media..i would suggest you to buy a new one.
If you desperately need IDE adapter you can find on ebay some converter from sata to ide converter.

LaCie DVD Burner Not Doing Much of Anything

You should check for corruption of your CD/DVD burning software from whereever you got it. Sometimes some burning software isn't good enough to work adequately. I'd test some new burning software to see if that is the problem, if upbrading your burning software doesn;t do the trick. You can downlowad free trials of Roxio, NTI, and other good burners to test this hypothesis. And, of course, try calling LaCie support.

Lite-on DVD R/W combo LH-20A1L BLO5 Blank discs not recognized

Have you checked device manager to see if you have a yellow checkmark on your DVD./CD drives? if ok, sounds to me like the maker of the LH-20A1l BLO5 either needs to fix your problem or replace it. The Nero 7 should enable it to work correctly.

Cant play DVD ROMs

you can try uninstalling the drive, by going to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look down the list for cd/dvd drives, click on '+' sign and right click on your drive make and select uninstal. Restart pc and your drive will be reinstalled automatically again. If you have a cd cleaner disc run that also. Try to run the game again, although it may still not work as the drives laser seems to be out of line or simply run it's life, and a new drive is the only answer i'm afraid.

CD burner

Sounds like an issue with the drive. Is your computer still under warranty? If so then I would call dell and get it replaced. If not, then I would replace it myself.
