Question about Computers & Internet
After I install SP3 I have problems with DVD drive. When I put blank DVD-, +R or +RW it shows 0 free space. I even tried to delete the upper and lower filters, but still unresolved.
I to have the same problem with my drives it is definately XP SP3 causing the issues and of course I be microsoft will deny this.

It has nothing to do with the upper and lower filters. I have tried those multiple times. I had done almost everything that is in this forum and the drive still did not work. It is definitely XP SP3 that is causing the problem. I pulled the drive out and put it in another machine with a clean installation of XP SP1 installed. I then installed Roxio. The drive worked great. I then installed SP3 and the drive quit working again. I then uninstalled SP3 and the drive started working again. That seems to be a pretty good indication it is SP3. Two different machines that quit working when SP3 is installed? Doesn't that indicate it is SP3? I am not the only person having this issue either. Just search with Google and you will find other complaints with no solutions yet. The only common thing is XP SP3.

In that case i would recomend that u should re install the drive. or try to update the drivers though internet. so if u could confirm me one more thing.pls tell me whats the status of the drvie i mean does it show not working in its PROPERTIES? u can check dat by going to Control Panel\System\Device Manager and under DVD/CD-ROM drives, right click on the name of ur drive,select properties and under the "Device status" field, check the status. if it states that It is not working then we'll have to install the drviers of ur drive again. if it says that It is working properly then we'll have to follow another procedure which ill check out very soon. OK?
