Question about DVD/Blu-ray Drives

Sony DVD RW DW-31A stopped writing and not recognising CD in tray

Medion PC with Sony DVD RW DW-Q31A writer and DVD ROM DDU1615 internal drives.
Stopped in middle of burning music to same type/batch CD used just prior. Message asks for "Insert empty disc to write to. Medium in drive:Unknown. Medium required by compilation CD-R/RW" (which is type used.)
This followed by: "DRM: DRM burn session terminated" and "DRM: Closing entire DM handling. Bye." which I assume is where i "cancel" the burn process when it fails. Same thing each time attempted with Nero or Windows Media or itunes s/ware.

PC support said reinstall windows to factory setting and then reinstall all software. Must be easier solution to that. Any ideas please??

pls try to clean the lens of the drive as follows

due to dusty environment and excessive use lens gets dusty and then have problems in reading or writing dvd 's and cd's

open the dvd tray u can see that shiny eye like thing try cleaning th lens gently in round movement with a tissue paper or very soft cloth used to clean lcd screens or cotton bud good quality see if it works , other wise ur DVD drive lens got weak from use now adays service centers are getting tons of them everyday for replacements

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
http://www.majorgeeks.com/BurnAware_Free_d5839.html
BurnAware Free is one of the most popular free CD, DVD, Blu-ray Disc burning software available for Windows.
Using this program you can easily create and burn Audio and MP3 CD, Data and DVD-Video disc, ISO and Cue Image,
erase or format rewritable disc, copy your CD or DVD to ISO image.
hope this helps

I'vd got not driver


Windows 2000 and XP and Vista and 7 have "built-in" device-drivers to allow you to read "data" files from CD and/or DVD drives.

However, you need software, such as 'PowerDVD' in order to "play" pre-recorded audio/video content recorded on DVD media.

See: http://www.CyberLink.com for information about 'PowerDVD' software.

I have a Dell Latitude D530 laptop - does it have a DVD writer?


According to your Service Tag, your machine was shipped with an 8X DVD -ROM & 24X CD/RW Combo Drive, so yes you will need to purchase a DVDRW drive. There is a single layer burner that 4.7GB, and a dual layer model for 8.5GB. They can be purchased from Dell directly, or eBay, Amazon etc (same drive fits D630, D830 etc) and there is a rectangular button on the lower right hand side of the drive that you press in, to pull out the existing CDRW, and simply slide the new drive in. You will need a Burning software like Roxio or Nero to burn DVD's onto the new drive.

My DVD ROM does not burn some cd,when it tries to burn the tray opens its self.how do i stop the tray from opening and closing its self automatically


Either the CD is full or the quality of the CD is inadequate to burn it with your CD writer.

Try a good quality CD, or lower the writing speed and make sure it is an empty CD.

Internal CD ROM will Not Open


Unless you can do electronic repair yourself and have the schematics for the drive it will be far cheaper and easier for you to simply replace it. Any DVD drive for computers will fit in there. I would buy a new one rather than used so you make sure and get the software with it. Replacing the drive is a 30 minute job at most.

DVD wont recognise disks


All you can do is the usuall checks:- try, go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall. restart the pc and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically. Check for any firmware updates, but i have come accross this a number of times when the drive is about to fail as some have a laser for writing and one for reading and the writing fails on all but cd as it's less for the laser to do. They cannot be repaired and are very inexpensive to replace nowadays.
