Re: Accessing CD writer

Try this, but be very careful while editing the registry.

Click start, run, type regedit

Navigate to this registry key:

Delete the "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" entries.

If you have more than one key with that number, use the first one.

I have a NEC Lavie L LL550/3 that doesn't read

The CD and DVD reading portions of the drive use different sensors, so it's possible it would stop reading DVDs but still continue to read basic (audio) CDs.

The question is, will the same, working audio CD work while booted up fully?

If it does not, it may be a matter of a driver problem; unfortunately drivers cannot be found online for this model. Check this thread and make a post or comment to try to find someone who may have the drivers you need.

I have a del studio 15 ....dvd writer is buil in..........when i insert any cd its reading as blank cd.........when i try to acces through MSDOS.....error pops as incorrect function

This is due to dusty or failed Laser head inside the drive. Try cleaning the Laser head with a soft cleaning cloth or with a cleaning kit. If it still does'nt work, that means, its failed. In that case, you may require an external CD/DVD writer, because, Laser head replacement cost would be more than external CD/DVD writer.

Good Luck.

CD Writer doesn't write.

Your burner has two laser inside it. One read and one write. Sounds like the write laser is toast. This is acutaly a fairly common failure among cd and dvd drives.

Reinstall the drivers with the latest and if you still have no luck then it will be time for a replacement.

How to record from a website to cd on laptop

To burn cd/dvd you have to check :

1. Your laptop cd/dvd drive have what capability:
- cd writer = only burn cd
- cd writer/dvd reader(combo) = still only burn cd
- dvd writer = can burn cd, dvd single layer(4GB)
- dvd DL writer = can burn cd and dvd single 4GB and dual layer 8GB.
Other than those, is not possible.

2. Must have burn apps named:
- Nero
- Alcohol 120%
- other. search internet.

If you have them then using the apps to burn, just read the manual.

Koam114 is in Korean. I don't understand :)
But If you want songs from website, you should download it first.
Unless the site is giving you a step by step how to burn songs directly to your cd/dvd.
Once downloaded, would be easier to burn to cd/dvd.

Cd rom problem

It is most likely dead. If you have not messed with the internals of the notebook. You will not get a error message nore will device manager show the cd player as defective. From your description of, (unable to write a CD or read any CD). It is rare to find a CD/R player or DVDR/RW player that warrants for more than a year. You can try buying a CD cleaner disk but for the money you spend for a cleaner you could add to a new CD writer. Suggest a new drive for notebook.:
please vote....
