Re: dvd driver or fat sys problem
Do check if your drive is broken! defrag your harddisk, to speed it up a bit. do state which cds and dvds your drive does not read, if theyre burnt one's, then your drive may not support them or they have not been finished properly. get the freeware burnatonce tool, install andrun it, find out which cd/dvd types your drive supports via tools/device info, it'll tell ya! now check the cd/dvds if they match or not. good luck

first check the boot drives to make sure that the computer is not trying to boot from a different drive to the one that contains Windows. check that there are no CDs or DVDs 3 1/2 inch floppy discs in the CD/DVD,3.1/2 floppy drives ,and no removableusb drives plugged in to the usb ports Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem Close all open programs
Click on Start, Run, and typeregedit and press Enter Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
Lower Filters.bak If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor Reboot your computer Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
If that fails then my suspicion is that either 1) the drive has failed or more likely 2) because you don't have any DVD burning software, windows can't understand the blank DVD-RW disk. This basic packet-burning software installed with XP CANNOT write to DVD disks.
However there is a bit more to it than that - the Microsoft CD burning software (which is a cut down Roxio product) cannot co-exist with any other packet burning software (e.g. DLA, In-CD or simuilar) so if one of those is installed you have to DISABLE the MS CD burning capability on the drive settings tab. Even worse, Internet Explorer 8 is not compatible with DLA - which is included in quite a few CD/DVD suites including many of the later Roxio versions
My advice would be 1) un-install any CD or DVD burning software on the machine 2) disable the MS CD burning 3) run that Microsoft patch 4) Install some DVD burning software but DON'T install the packet writing software part of it
Note that after installing that patch you may also have to reinstall any DVD playing software
your driver is affected and it will probably need a total reinstall to work fine ....there are viruses that affcets drive in such a way ..You can though go to device manager and see if the drive is in yellow with a ask sign on it ..and to click right and try to update driver ..but from my expirience in these situations it will not asign the right driver and this sirus will just affect it again in minutes so my advice is to see if the drive accepts bootabl;e cd with the installation software ..and reinstall i t..
Changing the DVD Region will allow you to watch or listen to CDs and DVDs made in other countries. To do this, follow these steps:
Note: Users can only change the DVD region code 5 times. After the 5th time, the region code is locked and cannot be changed anymore.
1. Takeout any CD/DVD from the driver 2. Select Start 3. Click Control Panel 4. Select System and Maintenance 5. Open the Device Manager 6. Click DVD/CD-ROM drives 7. Find the DVD or CD drive you want to modify and double-click it 8. Click the DVD Region Tab 9. Find the country the DVD was made and select it 10. Push Ok
Have you changed or upgraded your OS recently?
Looks like the drivers are corrupt or out-dated.
Might go to your computer mfg support site or the Drive mfg support site and download the latest drivers.
Uninstall whatever drivers are loaded reboot and reinstall fresh copies.
Right click on Computer->Manage->Device Manager->DVD/CD Rom drives. Select your DVD device from the list on the right hand side. Right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot your machine. On start up and after loggin in, your PC should go through the process of detection, installation and configuration of your "newly" found DVD device. Good luck!
checked my XP via control panel:
good luck...may be difficult to force drivers...when system asks to install software, insert the original XP cd. The driver did not change with SP2, as far as I know.
