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.

Have a dell inspiron cd-rw/dvd drive combo but it does not burn dvd only cd


Your drive is not a DVD burner. The way you can tell is that it is called a CD-RW/DVD drive, not a CD-RW/DVD-RW drive.

I have a D620 laptop with a tsstcorp ts-l632d dvd/cd burner but it will now only burn dvds and not cds, when I use windows media player it converts the songs but will not burn them


All burners use 2 lasers - one for the cd and the other for the dvd. In your case the laser for the cd has died and cannot be fixed. You must replace the burner . This one will do the job

Remove administrator Password.


Ask someone that has administrative privileges to log on, and from there you can view everyone's password.
