My dvd-rw stopped working. when I close door, I hear a noise, the light goes out. nothing happens. Device manager says the drive is working properly.


it may be that the dvd/rw media needs to be the proper type. look at old media you have used in the past and insure the new media is the same. the 2 different types are dvd +rw, dvd+r, dvd-rw, dvd-r. the plus or minus are the fifferences you should pay attention to , unles your device is +or - compatable.

My DVD-RW was working fine. I got a malware virus and had to do OS recovery. data was all fine and everything worked great. I updated all drivers. There was a lot of dust in unit and caked around internal...


Now that the malware has been removed, unplug your DVD-RW completely(power & IDE cable slot) and start your machine. If you have any junk file cleaning software, run it and shut down. Reattach the DVD-RW and also update the driver too. Use a CD-DVD cleaner of a reputed brand to clean the DVD-RW drive by following the instructions of the cleaner. Enable DMA/UDMA support for this drive. Reinstall your CD/DVD Burning software if you are using one. Make sure the region is kept blank for the DVD, do not change it...........sodeep

Try uploading to your PC then converting it to AVI this keeps quality of video. Then if you want to download to a disk use Nero to convert it to VOB (DVD format) and burn off. You can also use Nero to erase the disk. (Nero 7 or more recent preferably.) You must also be sure you PC DVD read write head can take the DVD +/- RW. CHeck compatability.

Dvd burner dvd+rw and dvd r problem


Hey Bruce - In your first post you said DVD+RW works which would make sense. In your comment you said that DVD-RW works which would not make sense. You've got to be sure. I'll you what it is supposedly direct from HP/Compaq:

Your PC will " supposedly do the following":

CD, DVD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW. These as I said are straight from the horses mouth. You can check for yourself.

PLEASE RATE FIXED if I answerd your question or please don't rate at all. It only hurts our ratings. I've done what I can for you. Thanks Bruce. If you need more help just add a comment and Ill be happy to assist you further.
