Question about Sony (DDU-1613-B2) Internal DVD Drive

Insignia D400, new Radeon 9250, Sony DDU 1613 not working

I have an Insignia D400 2.8 ghz with 512 meg of RAM. My Sony DVD was working fine. Then I upgraded my graphics card to the 256meg Radeon 9250 since my onboard Intel was only 64megs so I could run MS Flight Simulator X. I had previously loaded the game from the DVD, but when it ran too slow because of the card I deleted it until I could upgrade. Now that I have, the DVD will not see data, and actually doesn't run a DVD, although it seems to be working according to the troubleshooting. It gives the following message when I put in the MS FSX setup DVD which may give a clue. I hope someone can help. It says: This disc contains a "UDF" file system and requires an operating system that supports the ISO-13346 "UDF" file system specification. I have XP Home/SP2. I didn't have any other problems until the upgrade. Any help would be appreciated. ---Dean

You need windows professional or vista the reason the game runs slow is you need at least 1 gig of ram as the operating system takes 256mb to run this is why the game recomends 2.0 ghz cpu or higher 1gig of ram or higher the graphic card recomended NVidia Geforce 512mb xfx series with pixal shading and dx 9c compatable. clean the dvd lens with a dvd lens cleaner. the motherboard maybe the cause to the iso-13346 specification as the game is designed on intel and amd processors. hope this will give you help

I can install windows 8 on MY pc?? cpu:amd sempron

I don't think you can run Windows 8 on your system.
What Microsoft say are the minimum requirements for a system to run Windows 8 can be found here
First, the processor needs to have certain features - SSE2, NX and PAE which I don't think the Sempron 3000+ has; and you be able to run only the 32-bit version if could run that because you don't have enough RAM, and your processor is a 32-bit processor.
Secondly, the 9250 isn't up to it. It doesn't have WDDM drivers, because it's not a true Direct 9X graphics card; it not being a DirectX 9 card is enough to preclude from running Windows 6 anyway.

Your processor, RAM and graphics card might be upgradeable to be able to support a 32-bit version of W8, but that may be more expensive than buying a (new) W8 computer anyway.

Anyway that's what my brief study of the topic has lead me to believe. It's a no.

On the other hand, see these:
(found by searching the internet with "running windows 8 on a sempron 3000+")
They say "Yes".

So I think more research needs to be done. Note the second article says the system will have terrible performance.

    Seems like your graphic card is not supported. Its a older version. My first solution would be update your driver for your graphics card: or

    If that doesn't fix it (which I don't think it will), you might just have to buy yourself a better graphics card and/or computer.

    Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405 Memory upgrade problem

    This usually happens when the laptop is not able to take more then a certain amount of memory, as the system BIOS does not support higher. By saying ACPI as the blue screen, that tells me that the power subsystem does not 'like' having more then 512MB of RAM. I am 95% sure this is your BIOS because of that information. Check and see if you can find a BIOS upgrade for your computer model, and that might fix the issue, if an update is available.
