DVD r/w driver for XP Pro Service pack 3

Hi,
I have all the updates to Windows and the resident DVD driver will not burn DVDs. I can use stand alone SW to burn DVD's but I need an XP driver to use Ghost or other SW relying on Windows to provide a driver that works.
My search of the microsoft web site doesn't even mention there's a issue here. Any recommendations for this common problem?

It could be the DVD and maybe there is no drive on Windows for this DVD. You might have to use third party software.
If they did not send the drive in to Microsoft for the DVD then it is not there.

SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

How to installation windows xp in hindi lenguage with picture


  1. Step 1 Open Windows Update (located in the Windows XP Control Panel), and see if SP2 is on the list of available updates. If you don't have Windows Update installed or turned on, visit the Windows Update website in order to get the latest Windows Update software.
  2. Step 2 Select the Windows XP SP2 item from the list of available updates, and click the "Install" button. Windows Update will begin downloading Service Pack 2 (a process that may take up to 20 minutes or longer, depending on how fast your Internet connectionmag-glass_10x10.gif is), and will then launch the installation program once downloading is complete.
  3. Step 3 Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the Windows XP Service Pack 2 installation. You will be asked to accept the terms of the licensing agreement before the actual installation takes place. Installation may take up to 20 or 30 minutes, after which you will be required to reboot your computer in order for the changes to the operating system to take effect.
  4. Step 4 Should you have problems installing XP Service Pack 2 through Windows Update, download the stand-alone executable from Microsoft in order to install the software update manually. The Service Pack executable is designed to make it easier for IT professionals to update multiple computers without having to download the Service Pack onto each one. Run the installer program once you've finished downloading it, and follow the on-screen instructions as mentioned above.

AVI files lock the system to reboot to program interface


First make sure you have installed the newest service pack for XP
at LEAST have service pack 2 downloaded. I believe they have 4 out now.
Make sure you are not using more than ONE encoder program. I recommend downloading:
XP Codec Pack
Windows Codec Pack

These also come with AC3 Filter and MPEG decoders.

Make sure all your drivers are up to date.

DVD Burner does not recognize blank dvds


Usually 2 things cause this issue.

Incompatable Media or a Bad Drive.  
Make sure the type of disk you have is compatable with your burner. Often off brand or no brand media just won't work. HP burners are picky.

What driver to download???


Hi leovanhelden,

I've seen the S3 site, they are a little confusing when it comes to picking the correct driver. I'd go HERE which is really just a Via arena that you can pick the OS, and away you go.

Good Luck

Unable to burn using a LG GSA H58N DVD burner


With the built in drivers for windows XP it can identify and use DVD-RW facilities of DVD burner. However depending on your bios your machine can fail to burn DVDs if your bios can not recognise that output.

While loading the CD that comes with the DVD-RW did you get an error message if yes then it means you BIOS is failing to recognise your DVD-RW as an output method try to update the BIOS. But before you do that if you can try adding the drive on a modern (after 2002) machine with xp and see if it can burn DVDs there without adding any drivers.

if it fails on that other machine then you can be sure its not your BIOS but a problem with drive (which I suspect most actually). But if it works then then you need to update your machine bios.
