Question about Sony DW-Q28A (DW28Q) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner
Hi everyone and thanks in advance . I'm new here and i need help to fix a friend's of mine computer who is even worse than i am with computers! The problem is that my dvd burner can write cds but can't burns dvds.It used to work fine but suddenly a few months ago it just stopped burning dvds. the pc is running windows xp pro (version 2002) SP2 Intel pentium 4, 3.2 ghz, 512 Ram ... In case it helps , i checked the filters , but i stopped there, didn't try to turn them off or something since i'm a rookie and don't want to cause more damage to it. Anyway , i give you the review of the filters test. The Upper Filters are: GEARAspiWDM The Lower Filters are: PxHelp20 AnyDVD cdrbsdrv ElbyDelay As i mentioned , a few months ago everything was running smoothly but then this problem occured. And to be honest , i don't know the changes my buddy made in order to imagine what caused the problem. ( he has no idea either ) I would like to thank you in advance. Any help will be much appretiated. Ps : sorry for my english!!!
It may be a dual laser type burner and the dvd laser has faulted, you can try using a cd/dvd cleaner to clean the laser. Otherwise try:- Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers
