Question about Lenovo IdeaPad G430
Cannot burn dvd or cd . get same error msg . tried using nero and power2go still same issue
Frequently this is a driver or firmware issue. First try to update your device driver. Open the Device Manager. (Click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sounds (or System and Security) > Device Manger, in Windows 7. The route is similar for Vista and XP. ) Locate your CD drive in the list under DVD/CD-ROM. Right click on the drive and click Update driver. (You may need to uninstall the current driver first and restart the computer; this is in the same list.) This will find the current Windows driver. For firmware, check what drive was actually included in your G430 and find the manufacturer. You can also check for drivers or firmware at the Lenovo support site. (For 32-bit versions of Windows OS, you can use SIW to detail your hardware. It's available here: www.gtopala.com/ . )
Next check the autorun details for your optical drive. Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound .Select AutoPlay and select the defaults. (Note: for security reasons, you may not want to change the settings for software.) If you are really confident, you can change the Autorun settings in the registry. Back up your registry (Export > All) first. I do not recommend changing the registry.
The final solution is to get new optical drive (read/write). USB optical drives are available, if you do not want to try to replace the internal drive. Make sure that your laptop is running on AC power (not the battery only) for burning.
I hope this helps.
