That depends on the burning software that you have used. The easiest solution is to use another one and try again. I use http://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-SOFTWARE/CD-DVD-Tools/Windows-Portable-Applications-Power-Laser-Express.shtml
First check the program you are using has selected the dvd-rom drive on pc.
If its selected and its still a problem then try changing to different brand of blank DVDR . I have used Tuffdisc , Bulkpaq, Datasafe, and Verbatim and few others on similar model Pioneer DVD writer and it works fine.
i have the same problem ,but when i restart my pc ,i put the disk it can read without a doult .The problem is your disk drive can't read disk when it on windows mode ,using dos and it just fine,some kind of trouble appear cause i burn too much disk in a time and it can't read next time i open computer .May be your windows problem just restart wins then put the disk in ,if it appear the green light it mean it's reading then the green light off it's mean it had identify the disk and does read it
your DVD ROM lens has became weak. and it cannot be repaired. But
if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will
start working again but be careful remember that no power should be
attached to ROM. or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that. pls rate my solution thankyou
have you setup the boot order to cdrom first?.. also is the cd 100% bootable? i use imgburn.com to burn a memtest86.com bootable cd ISO file inside the zip file i extracted. i had to use a tool once called filtercheck i got it from cdr-zone.com in the forums by searching for filtercheck.. theres 2 versions one says check other says removal. the removal will say found some filters. i removed all and its all ok .. had to reinstall burning application though.
yes your quite correct, starforce once installed can damage the fimware more so for multi writers, a common problem will be slower recording speeds.
It can even damage the hardware itself and render the writer totally useless.
If your getting to that stage, for the price of a new writer, it's not worth the worry, replacing the drive is the only answer.
If there were compatability issues with the disc it would have been unable to burn to the dvd initially, the problems you mention are a sign that the reading in the dvd is failing and there's never a solution for problems as these, as it means that a replacement is needed, as the dvd writer arent worth repairing.
I had the same thing exactly, but after a while it wouldnt even acknowledge that i had a writable dvd in the drive, but was ok with cd's.
I think it is down to poor quality lasers, so as to keep the dvd writer prices down.
