Windows backup does not support backup to cd-r,cd-rw or dvd-r etc devices directly
see this article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315255/

So backup the files on to the hard drive first and then burn the backup using a good cd or dvd burning software like Nero, Roxio or PowerISO
here is the link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308422 which will guide you through the steps

Note:Select the backup destination as your local hard disk

> unable to read any CD or DVD. Its detected in device manager but cant ready media.
Can you hear it "spinning" the media? If not, you have a "defective" unit (motors or bearings).
If it spins, but nothing is read, then you have a "defective" unit (dead laser).
Take it back to where you bought it, and get them to test it, to prove that it is "bad", and then for them to replace it.

Normal for most SATA devices.
> it shows as HT-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8526B ATA device.
Perfectly normal.

Which OS Service Pak is XP using? Have you tried to update the drivers? ' System ' Hardware ' Device Mgr
Can you test the burner on a 2nd PC? My older PC's dont see the DVD-RW but the burning software does.

I have also the same problem and after firmware upgrade i found that my drive does not detected by my pc's bios setup. is there any solution for backup the process or repair the drive.I edited the...


did u upgrade ur BIOS firmware ?
if so it's gone corrupt...if u have the backup of the original firmware...then FLASH the BIOS with that...else u may have to change the BIOS chipset....but that may be a tricky issue as the chip is fixed in the motherboard....
Cardinal Rule 1
NEVER UPGRADE / NEVER MAKE ANY CHANGES TO UR FIRMWARE ON ANY HARDWARE.....THE HARDWARES ARE MFG TO AND FIRMWARES ARE INSTALLED TO WORK THE WAY THEY ARE MADE...99.99% of the people who made changes to the firmware on any of their hardwares....have always faced issues later with the hardware...

Rule 2,
Always take a backup of the original Firmware if u can else dont venture into this complicated issue...

Doesn't show any files and folders when drive opened


Congrats, You got a nice virus. Its better you backup your drivers and data from ur root partition format it. reinstall your operating system and install avg 8.5 before browsing any of the other partition. I can surely tell u your task manager, registry editor or show hide folder won't be working. There is no permanent solution to this other than format. But beware don't browse other partition before installing avg 8.5. Your earlier installed antivir has given its way to virus its of no use. You won't be able to install antivirus or visit any malware removal virus site. welcome back.

DVD+RW & +R DL


In order to upgrade the firmware the LG drive MUST be on it's own IDE channel and 60 conductor cable and be set as master.
___________________________________________
Quoted from the LG support firmware file download:

Critical Instructions: (to be followed carefully)
1. Connect the drive as master by it self, on the secondary IDE controller with no other device on the same IDE cable, making note to set the jumper on the back of the drive to the master position.
___________________________________________

To check this open the computer case.
If you need more assistance, post here again.
