Question about ASUS SDRW-08D2S-U/BLK/G 8X Slim External DVD Writer Optical Drive Black USB2.0 Burner

1 Answer

Asus Varidrive Hi there, My parents have just purchased an ASUS Varidrive that is attached to their ASUS Notebook laptop. I was trying to burn a playlist in Itunes and when Itunes asked me to insert a blank cd, I did so. One of the songs in the play list could not be located in the middle of the burn and Itunes let me know that the song could not be located. But after this I could not eject the cd at all. In fact in file explorer, when you click on E:\drive to then right click and click on eject, file explorer goes into 'not responding' mode. After shutdown/restart many times still no answer. I tried looking for the dot where you can put a straightened paperclip into the driver to release the CD, but the product is so slimline with felt lining that you cannot even see it!You can hear the CD Rom driver spinning then stopping over and over again. Please help!

Had the same problem on Mac.
Solution: You need to connect device to machine on Linux and give it "eject" command.
Do not to connect device to Windows machine. I was trying to burn cd on Mac. Then it was interrupted in the middle of burning (some files were missing). When I connected drive to Win it tryed to unsuccessfully read it and eventually explorer.exe crushed. And it will not resolve until you reboot the machine.

Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

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.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

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.
