Re: teac dvd recorder

In the control panel, go into "power options", there make sure the settings make sense(that there's no setting that shuts off the hard drive or hybernates the PC after a while its apparently not used). Failing electrolytic capacitors on the motherboard or a failing power supply sound like a potential avenue of investigation to me. You may be able to detect bad caps with no more than a visual inspection for bulges and/or leaking electrolyte. Try borrowing a power supply and see if it solves it. Does this happen with more then one DVD playing software? Hope you sort it out

Cannot record on my teac2500hdr

It sounds like the software update fubar'd the machine. I would suggest contacting the company who made the machine and asking them for help. Or it's possible that a firmware update is needed.

My cd rom is not reading any disc and i keep hearing a clicking sound.

Go to
1-my computer
2-then properties
3-then device manager
4-then look for your cd-rom
5-uninstall the driver (only if you have the cd-rom installation program from the manuf.) and restart your PC
If you don,t then find any conflicts in the device manager "like a yellow symbol" and if you find any try to "update driver".

Burning Error - TEAC DW-28E

julia_roehl --

Couple items...

#1 - Buy good media, the lower the quality the more chance for error (slightly imperfect thickness = vibrations during burning, etc)

#2 - Try lowering your burn speed to 2.4x, seems to add to odds of being read by better machines

#3 - I'm sure you have tried, but have you cleaned your optics lately?
Using a Q-tip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol, and GENTLY rotate the swab across the lens, rotating it in the opposite direction you are wiping. This should "lift" any dust or grime from the lens. I would also clean the tray with a soft lint-free cloth (using an air-can just moves the dirt around, doesn't solve the problem)

Hope this helps!

If you have further issues, comment to this thread and I will be happy to assist you!

Teac DW-224E-c - cannot burn DVD's

The answer is what you profess. The drive can burn CD's, read CD's and also read DVD's. Everytime I try and burn a DVD I have an unrecognized drive and the properties always show no disk: The drive burns CD's ie;music, but cannot burn DVD it can only read DVD like you say!
