SOURCE: SONY DVD RW AW-G170a

This is a problem with the DVD Writer model. SONY DVD RW AW-G170a has problems reading DVD+/- R/RW Discs. But there is no problem with any of the DVD+/- R/RW Dual Layer, DVD Ram or CD+/- R/RW Discs. It is the reason that this DVD Writer lacks the correct bitsetting for DVD+/- R/RW Discs. There is nothing else you could do other than replacing the wirter with some other model.

Hi,
this isn,t a big task.
1:- cable 40 strand IDE Ribbon Cable to DVD Rom. If there is a secondary device such as hard-drive. view it,s jumper ( plastic Block) setting will be Master Or Slave. Setup your DVD To Opposite of Hard-Drive ( If applicable )
2:- 4 pin Molex plug power cable, Red-Blk-Blk-Yellow. Only goes in 1 way, usually yellow facing outside edge of case.
3:- turn on computer, drive should be detected, install device drivers via CD if requested by the system.

Sounds like the board went on the dvd drive. Replace the DVD drive with a new one.

MY PC has sony DVD-ROM DDU1615 that I can't record my videos onto a dvd


you cant burn a disk with a dvd rom
you will need both a dvd rw unit and a dvd rw disk to burn any video to a disk if you have both of these the burning program might not support video burning or you might not have selected the right option there are lots of free burning software programs that can burn videos to a disk you might have to burn it as an ISO image

LG DVD-ROM DRN80808. IT SAYS DVD ROM BUT WONT BURN TO DVD.


DVD-ROM means that it reads DVD's not that it burns DVD's. DVD-R,DVD+r, DVD-RW, DVD+RW are what you want to look for when it comes to DVD burners.

My ACER cd/dvd scb265 combo doesn't read some DVD data disk


Windows Vista by default burns "Live File System" It picks if its Live or not when you are "Preparing the blank disc" this is when it asks you what to you want to title the disc. The problem with Live discs is they don't work on any operating system that came before Windows XP and they don't work on Windows XP if it doesn't have service pack 3. Because of this, you want to burn your CD/DVD as a "Mastered" disc. These are compatible with all operating systems, but any files are permanent *unless you are using CD/RW or DVD/RW, DVD/RAM.


If this was not your problem, please leave a comment and I will get back to you and try to fix your problem =)
