    On my Averatec 3150h the disc drive won't open when I push the eject button. The drive dosen't even show up in the My Computer screen but yet, device manager shows it and says it is working properly. It wonnt read any disc of any format. I tried deleting the upper and lower filters in the registry, no luck there. I went ahead and ordered a replacement DVD/CDRW drive and just declared this one broken. The only problem is that I cant figure out how to get the old one out. It is hidden under the keyboard and i can't find a way to get to it. Any information on how to fix this one or a schematic to get it out would be appreciated. Thank you.

Edit the registry and delete the upper and lower filter.

In Registry Editor, expand the following registry path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class

Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.

Right click the upper filter and delete it. Look for lower filter and delete it also. (if only one is available then its fine).

close registry editor and restart the computer.

try your dvd drive again.


***Note*** make sure to follow the instructions properly. do not delete any file, just the lower and upper filter or else system will not load to windows anymore.

L305D-S5930 dvd wont burn documents to a dvd disc


You need a program, like nero.
if that doesn't work then put a DVD in the drive & see if the computer picks it up in the my computer.
the first thing that goes in a CD/DVD-RW drive is the DVD heads, thats if your drive is a CD/DVD-RW.
Have a look on the front of the drive tray, if it say CD-RW DVD ROM then it doesn't burn DVD's it only plays them.

So today i desided to restore my Averatec 3150H


You can get Bart PE at www.tucows.com online and look it up it will allow you to start-you have no choice. You can start up windows to look at the drive, this is assuming you have Xp or XP professional. It will allow you to reformat the drive, do not format the partition that has the drivers in it unless you have to bart pe also has a disk repair on it to allow you to fix some of the most common problems on windowsxp. If you need averatec's web site for support let me know and I can give you their 800 number so you can call them, there computers are junk I owned one had to replace three mother boards in one year.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

SONY DVD RW AW-G170a


This is a problem with the DVD Writer model. SONY DVD RW AW-G170a has problems reading DVD+/- R/RW Discs. But there is no problem with any of the DVD+/- R/RW Dual Layer, DVD Ram or CD+/- R/RW Discs. It is the reason that this DVD Writer lacks the correct bitsetting for DVD+/- R/RW Discs. There is nothing else you could do other than replacing the wirter with some other model.
