You can't just change it from pio to udma. Go to Control Panel, System,Hardware,Device Manager, then expand IDE ATA/ATAPI, then right click on Primary IDE and select uninstall. Do the same for secondary IDE. Then just reboot your system, and it will autodetect all IDE devices. After that when you check, you should not have any devices in PIO, and your burner should work correctly. If not, stick it in a hyperbaric chamber for 2 days and see if that helps.

My dvd player read only vcd not dvd.


if the drive is only reading certain media and not all of them and you know you have a dvd drive in the system then that means the laser is going bad in it cause the laser requires different strengths to read different media. Get the drive replaced.

The drive is faulty. You need to replace the drive. The reason the DVD still works is because a combo drive has 2 different lasers; one for the CD and one for the DVD. So the CD laser is faulty.

DVD Burner will not burn


Read the front of your drive to see if you have a DVD-R or DVD-RW drive. A DVD-R will copy a DVD to your hard drive, but will not burn it. If you do have a DVD-RW drive, try a different brand of disc or a DVD-R disc, some drive are just temperamental.
