The dvd writer needs to be replaced,the laser is faulty or miisaligned, the cost of a repair is no longer viable because a new one would cost about $60 (£32.00)

DVD burning problem


Sounds like you are right. DVD burners are not too expensive these days. You might save yourself a lot of headache if you just replace it.

It sounds as if the drive needs cleaning and re aligning with a lens cleaner or replacing, but try one thing before doing anything. 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.

You can firstly try this:- 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. But it may well be that your laser will need re aligning and cleaning with a cd cleaner, but if still no change the laser is on it's way out, I am lead to believe some burners have dual lasers for dvd and cd
