AFTER CLONING A DVD TO MY PC AND WRITING THE DVD FILE TO A BLANK TDK DVD+R DISC, MY E DRIVE WON'T READ ANY DVD THAT I PUT IN THE DRIVES. THE E DRIVE LIGHT IS FLASHING NON-STOP AND TRYING TO READ, BUT WON'T. I TRY TO CLONE A DVD AND MY CLONE PROGRAM SAYS THAT THERE ISN'T ANY MEDIA IN THE DRIVE. ANY TIPS??

Re: DVD DRIVE WONT READ
You may have installed a program for the cloning that has "commandeered" your drive. Try doing a System Restore to a date prior to cloning the DVD. You can also try uninstalling any programs like MagicISO or Alcohol and then re-installing your normal burning software. You can also try Uninstalling or disabling your drive and re-booting, forcing a driver reload.

Your Dvd drive is bad, it is not getting the data to burn, the laser that does the writing isn't writing the data to the disc. and option B is also depending on what program you are using to burn the dvd's and cd and following the correct steps. If all is good and you followed the right steps to it, then you need to replace your dvd/cd drive,
just insert a blank dvd in writer and send the file to dvd drive showing in ur computer by write click on the file and choose send to say dvd rw drive f.
when all the files are transferes to your dvd drive. click on my comuter and open this dvd drive there you see a option in the left panel " write these files in to disc".
click that option wait for some minutes until a popup comes saying writing completed .
now your file has been successfully written in the disc.
right click on the drive then properties then hardware and enable the cd and dvd recording then try if the problem still ocurs then its time to change the drive(u can also change the lazer ray with the same type)
Can be several reasons
1. Disk is upside down
2. Lens is durty. Use CD/DVD cleaning disk
3. Disk is recorded in higher speed than your driver can read (for instance reading speed is 16, but disk is recorded on 24).
4. DVD drive is damaged or not connected properly.
There are two common causes for these kinds of problems: software doesn't match, or media doesn't match. also, there a lack of info in here. is drive capable of reading dvd's when it is used for other purposes?
1. are you sure you got the right firmware? check for updates on brand site or on google.
2. try using several types of media from diffrent brands. some drives cannot read specific media (for instance, sony drivers sometimes having trouble with JVC media).
3. the least common, but worst option by far is a hardware problem. if drive is bad, you should try and replace it in case your warrenty didnt expire.
