I need solution for this problem immediately I installed windows 7 in my PC. after that in My PC DVD RW is not working.

Was the Windows 7 installed from a clean slate or you upgraded from Vista to Windows 7? If you have upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, then this is definitely a driver problem. You can try to update the driver by going to Device Manager, check if the DVD drive is listed. Pull down the drop down list, and right click on the devices listed under DVD/CD-ROM Drives and choose Update Driver Software.
If the DVD drive came with a software bundle (e.g. Nero Burning Application) Try reinstalling these application under Windows 7 Environment.

Can't recognise DVD RW

Hi all,

Boy, have I been having a problem. I've tried two different dvd burners, an external TDK DVD+/- RW drive and now an internal NEC dual layer DVD+/-RW drive. I have a Dell Dimension 4500 that came with a Dell branded Windows XP Pro. Have you ever tried getting support from Dell? What a freaking bad joke that is.

Microsoft says there is known problem with XP viewing a DVD+/-RW disc the same way it views a CD+/-RW disc. Problem is a CD RW uses 32 bit packets and a DVD RW uses 16 bit packets. As a result, without the fix, my computer can't recognize there is a DVD RW disk in the drive when trying to burn to it. It recognized DVD +R and DVD-R discs just fine, and I am able to burn to those with no problem.

What I want to do is image my hard drive and burn the image to DVD. That I can't do, because it always comes up with "no disk" or some variation thereof anytime I try to write to an RW disc. Any suggestions? Has anyone else had this problem?

Driver for dvd-r 8801 need a driver for dvd player windows won't recognise it

The drivers for DVD ROM drives are built into Windows and there is no download.

If Windows does not recognize th drive then it could be a hardware issue or possibly a BIOS setting is wrong.

Does the Windows Device Manager show an un-recognized device?

HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4243N wont burn dvds

Hi there,

Try uninstalling the Driver in Device Manager: in XP or earlier: Start/Control Panel/System/Hardware Tab/Device Manager, or in Vista & 7: Start/Control Panel/Device Manager.

Once in Device Manager click on the + sign that is in front of 'DVD/CD ROM drives' to open it up, then right click on the model of the Optical Drive in question.

Click Properties/Driver Tab/Uninstall (Advanced) & this will remove the driver if it is corrupt. Restart your system & the Hardware Manager will recognise the Optical Drive & install the necessary Driver.

If this doesn't solve your dillema then I hope that you have a warranty. Good luck in trying.

Kindest regards,

My cd writer driver is showing error code 39

Your drive may have taken a driver update, causing the problem. In device manager, right click on the device and select properties, then under the driver tab, select "Roll back driver". If a driver update is at fault it will complete the roll back and hopefully cure your ills. If there is no driver to roll back to, you can attempt an update under the same tab.
I hope this helps and good luck.
