Re: phillips dvd rw 16x double capacity series

What did you uninstall if you meant the drivers then thats all you do. Rollback to the last driver. You say media burners are having a problem reading your Phillips dvd rw. Does Windows read it does windows see the drive? if it does the problem lies with the media burners though I cant quite fathom what you mean "Media Burners" are talking about Media Player 11 Nero 7 and so on ifn so this is a software problem not a hardware. Normally software is remedied like a product with drivers to run it. Hardware ahs firmware to make the hardware go.

Turn your computer off, and unplug the AC power.

Open up your computer, and unplug the "data" and "power" cables from the DVD-drive, and then reconnect them. Check that the "other" end of the "data" cable is firmly attached to the motherboard.

Reconnect the power, and restart the computer.
Press DEL to enter BIOS-setup mode.
Is the DVD-drive still not detected?

If it is not detected, it probably is electronically "dead", and needs to be replaced.

NEC-3520A Suddenly stop to burn correctly, but reads OK

Have you tried lowering the burn/erase speed? To begin, simply do what you need to do on the lowest speed, and then keep increasing until it gives the error again. This will most likely work. I had this problem and I burn now CDs at 16x.
