Emachine optiarc dvd rw ad-7200

The machine is brand new. The drive will play movies that I bought at a store. I have bought new cd's and dvd's thinking it was the disks. I have bought other disks staples cd-rw, memorex cd-rw,ridata cd-r,tevion dvd-r,dvdr, maxell dvd-r,jvc dvd-r,hp dvd-r and none work.
I did buy DVD+RW when I put this dvd in it searches for it and the computer shows the icon but that's it. Doesn't burn or read.
Does anyone have a solution for this? I have been searching the internet but no luck on fixing it.

I am about ready to buy a new drive. My computer see the drive. The device manager is ok no yellow question marks. I just can't figure it out.

    Dear Friends,
    After hours of searching on line for answer to fix this problem. I just had to replace the drive. I had a few older computers left around. I took the drive out of one of them and replaced in my vista computer. It works fine now. No issues. It's easy to do. I didn't have to pay $50.00 - $100.00 for a new drive either. If you have a warranty you should contact the company. I believe they will send you a drive. Thanks for your answers guys.

I need to know if my DVD Drive can burn dual layer Discs. The Discs are DVD+R DL and my dvd drive is an Optiarc DVD RW AD-7200A ATA. Thanks


Hi anternidrumm,

According to the site below, the drive can burn dual layers discs:

"The 20x DVD multi writer opens up new dimensions for flexible read and write functions. This high-performance DVD/CD-burner is able to read your DVDs at a speed of 16x and CDs at 48x. It also brings fascinating dynamics into play when writing your blank disks. Now it can even write DVD-R DL two layer media at 12x, while reaching a speed of up to 20x for DVD+R and DVD-R. DVD+R9 and DVD+RWs are processed at 8x and DVD-RWs at 6x. And DVD-RAM can be recorded with up to 12x DVD speed. So how fast can it burn my CDs, you might ask? Even here, with speeds of 48x (CD-R) and 32x (CD-RW), it’s at the top of its class."

The driver is not detected by laptop


Is your dvd drive capable of doing light scribe?: If not, then the driver won't make it work. It takes a special drive to use lightscribe, and it should be part of your CD/DVD burner software. I highly recommend Nero software as the best, more reliable and easiest to use. Also, it the brand that usually comes with New CD and DVD drives.

DVD player won't recognize movies in drive D


It may be a case of downloading "CODECS" for the the software to be able to recognize the new movies. It's an anti-piracy technique that require frequent updates to view DVD's on computers to try to eliminate copying.
