Whenever I try to burn a cd in my DVD ram a message shows up saying it is not accessible, Incorrect function.? What do I do? ive tried to disable and enable the drive then reboot the sys., still the same...

try running the fix-tool provided by Microsoft on this web page

If that fails then my suspicion is that either
1) the drive has failed
or more likely
2) because you don't have any DVD burning software, windows can't understand the blank DVD-RW disk. Thas basic packet-burning software installed with XP CANNOT write to DVD disks.

However there is a bit more to it than that - the Microsoft CD burning software (which is a cut down Roxio product) cannot co-exist with any other packet burning software (e.g. DLA, In-CD or simuilar) so if one of those is installed you have to DISABLE the MS CD burning capability on the drive settings tab. Even worse, Internet Explorer 8 is not compatible with DLA - which is included in quite a few CD/DVD suites including many of the later Roxio versions

My advice would be
1) un-install any CD or DVD burning software on the machine
2) disable the MS CD burning
3) run that Microsoft patch
4) Install some DVD burning software but DON'T install the packet writing software part of it

Note that after installing that patch you may also have to reinstall any DVD playing software

Itunes knocks out DVD/CD driver whenever I update Itunes.

Solution 1

Check with your manufacturer to see if there are updated software drivers for your optical drive. For more information about updating the firmware of your CD or DVD drive,

Solution 2

Launch Windows Explorer.
Navigate to C:\Windows\system32\drivers\.
Check to see if either of the following 2 files are present. These files from a third-party software vendor are not supported by Windows Vista and can cause driver conflicts with optical drives:
If either of the files in Step 3 are present, move them out of the system32 folder. You should keep these files stored somewhere on your hard drive, as some of your older peripherals may require them. If you find that they are required in the future to use a device, you may move them back into the system32 folder temporarily.
Reboot Windows Vista.

Solution 3

Quit iTunes.
Manually remove the GEAR driver software using the steps found here.
Remove any stand alone GEAR software installers from the Programs and Features control panel, if present.
Install the updated GEAR driver.

My combo DVD drive will burn a CD, but when I put in a blank DVD it just opens the drawer and says to insert a disc. Windows XP.

If it is in fact a Teac CD-Rewritable W58E CD-RW Burner, this will only burn CDs and not DVDs. If you put in a blank DVD you will get this error. You will need a burner that has DVD burning support.

I have a lite-on dvdrw sohw-1633s that windows xp will not detect the driver. it shows cdrom.sys driver how do i fix this? I have burned dvd's befor and don't know how or why the driver changed.

Windows xp does not have a native driver for DVD writers. It always detects them as cdrom.sys. You need to use either the writing software supplied with the drive or Nero or equivalent

Cant even READ DVD

the XP driver really should work appropriately. I might assume that the drive is damaged (which happens to me frequently with older DVD drives).

DMA drive error.

Its a problem with the windows dma seting for drives. In "device manager", open properties for ur drive and your interface like IDE/ATA controller. There, you can check and change DMA Settings.

Allow max DMA. Do not disable DMA.

U can also check DMA setting on BIOS if ur bios supports it.
