The windows might be corrupted. You could try editing the windows registry. here are the steps:

In order to delete upper and lower filters you're going to have to edit the registry. The usual cautions apply. If the registry is not edited properly your whole system can crash.

1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
* SYSTEM
* CurrentControlSet
* Control
* Class
* {4D36E965-E325-11CE-
BFC1-08002BE10318}

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

* UpperFilters
* LowerFilters
* UpperFilters.bak
* LowerFilters.bak

5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor
7) Reboot your computer
8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

last option, you could try installing imgburn. here's the download link: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

If nothing happens, your dvd drive is bad.

Good Luck,

Ryan

The CD Drive does not work all of the time.


Nate, How old is your laptop? From what I can find, it looks like the Optarc 5540 is indeed a DVD±R/RW/R-DL burner. It should read anything you put in. If you have the driver, I might try to reinstall that first, but if this is a fairly new system (Under warranty) I would definitely pursue a replacement.

The cd drive aint reading blank disc


You must have the burner program (roxio or nero) identify the CD/DVD RW Drive. If the burner program didn't come with the drive at the time of purchase go to roxio or nero site and look for updates for your particular drive. If you don't have that info...look in divice manager under CD/DVD-Rom Drives and it will tell you.
Failing that...look for updates of "Firmware" at the manufacturer of your drive...
Good luck...hope this helps

I have an internal HP DVD Writer 740b that writes on CD but not on DVD. I tried Sony DVD RW and Memorex DVD-RW to copy files on but I failed. I use Nero Essentials to burn. The dialogue box keeps saying no...


DVD-RW drives have 2 different designs, 1 used dual optics, 1 for CD one for DVD, the other uses optics that can refocus between the media types.

If you haven't done so already, flash the firmware of the drive to the latest available from HP.

Assuming that the drive worked with NERO previously, If that doesn't resolve, you will likely need to replace the drive.

If you have not used Nero with that drive for DVD media, you might try a different SW and see if Roxio/Sonic will see DVD media in the drive.

How do I get a Verbatim DVD RW disk to record a file that i have downloaded


1. You need a drive that will record on a DVD RW.
2. You need software that will let you record to a DVD RW (such as nero, roxio, there are others)

If you have the above the two, it depends on the software you use on how to record to the DVD RW.

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.
