Dvd burner malfunction

Hi,
I have a Dell Inspiron 1721, with a TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L632H ATA dvd/cd drive.

I've had no problems with it (burning, viewing or otherwise) up until a couple of weeks ago when it started to only burn a very small amount of information onto the blank dvd, leaving the rest empty. I have tried several different types of burning software but the same thing happens and I'm left with a disc with only a millimetre's worth of info burned on.

The computer tells me that the device is working properly.

Any ideas what the cause could be and how to fix it?

Thanks

Alan

It's Genius, unfortunately while It is attacking the source of the recording ability of the drive I am not that experinced with the registry, so when you say loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'), I am lost. I need to know how to do that step by step.

In that case the laser (and the entire unit with it) is dead. Replace it, it can't be fixed.

Reboot and hit F12 to run Dell Diagnostics on the drive. It does sound like it could be bad.
If it is, you may need to replace it.
These drives have been failing a lot lately, and even the firmware patch is not helping.

What DVD burner should I put in my Dell E1505 Laptop


I'd get a double layer (dl) drive by Memorex from either Tigerdirect or NewEgg. They always have them on sale and all three of my systems have one installed.

Good luck,
