Sounds your laser damage. Try to open and clean the laser but I will not recommend you to do it by yourself but that's your decision.

MY PC has sony DVD-ROM DDU1615 that I can't record my videos onto a dvd

you cant burn a disk with a dvd rom
you will need both a dvd rw unit and a dvd rw disk to burn any video to a disk if you have both of these the burning program might not support video burning or you might not have selected the right option there are lots of free burning software programs that can burn videos to a disk you might have to burn it as an ISO image
BurnAware Free is one of the most popular free CD, DVD, Blu-ray Disc burning software available for Windows.
Using this program you can easily create and burn Audio and MP3 CD, Data and DVD-Video disc, ISO and Cue Image,
erase or format rewritable disc, copy your CD or DVD to ISO image.
hope this helps

My sony DVD-ROM DDU 1615 does not play DVD video or record my videos onto dvds.

If you want to just PLAY DVD movies with your current setup, then try downloading and installing a free program called VLC MEDIA PLAYER from WWW.CNET.COM which will let you play DVDs on your computer.

Here is the direct link to their download page where you can read about the software, check out other user's reviews, and download it free if you want:;productListing

I use this free progarm on my computer and it works great.

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated.

Then just click on the DOWNLOAD NOW (19.42 MB) button that you see on the left hand side of the page.

Then follow the onscreen instructions to download and install the program. Be sure to click on the yellow security bar at top of the page if necessary to ALLOW DOWNLOAD.
However, if you want to actually BURN videos onto recordable DVDs, then you are going to have to go out and buy a bit of new hardware.

The ROM part in DVD ROM stands for READ ONLY MEMORY. That means your disk drive can only READ DVD disks, it is unable to BURN (record) onto disks. For that you will have to go out and buy a DVD RW disk drive. They look exactly the same as yours, but are a few bucks more, and they have the extra capability of burning files onto blank recordable DVD disks (DVD-Rs).

Please comment back here to this page if you have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

Thank you very much, good luck, and take care.

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







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.

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor

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.

Try to burn a cd

Hi, make sure that you have the right type of CD or DVD in the burner. From what you have written about what you drive is it is a "_" not a "+". It actually makes a difference. You may have acidently bought the wrong type for your burner and this will bring up that error.

Check your CD's and give that a go.

Insignia D400, new Radeon 9250, Sony DDU 1613 not working

you need windows professional or vista the reason the game runs slow is you need at least 1 gig of ram as the operating system takes 256mb to run this is why the game recomends 2.0 ghz cpu or higher 1gig of ram or higher the graphic card recomended NVidia Geforce 512mb xfx series with pixal shading and dx 9c compatable. clean the dvd lens with a dvd lens cleaner. the motherboard maybe the cause to the iso-13346 specification as the game is designed on intel and amd processors. hope this will give you help
