Can read but cannot write

I think it will be ok if you upgrade the firmware can download it from support and download and choose proper model and device and down load a formware updat and update it .
and also try to remove and reinstall your burning software ,
also please try to burn a data from windows itself if it writes that means no issues with firmware only reinstall the burning software.

Can read dvd's but can't read cd's

I would suggest upgrading the firmware for this particular model. There have been multiple errors with the Lite On drives not reading correctly until the firmware has been updated. This firmware can be obtained from Lite On.

My samsung dvd writer is reading cds but not dvds what should i do

Caution: Samsung is not responsable for problems during the firmware upgrade.
When you encounter problems during the upgrade, please contact a Samsung Service Center.
If your drive is still in warranty please contact your retailer first. When you upgrade your firmware, please check the "Buyer" on your label of drive.
If you upgrade wrong firmware, you will have a problem in operating.
ex) SM-332B/*** 63BT123456 F/W=T403(***=Buyer)
■■ How to upgrade firmware ■■ 1. Download the attached "Bin file(firmware)" and "Sfdnwin.exe file(download
program)" into a temporary folder. 2. When you run "Sfdnwin.exe", Pop-up window will appear. you can see your ROM-
drive(s) in the Pop-up window.
Then choose the drive whose firmware you want to upgrade.
ex)Drive:SAMSUNG CD-R/RW SM-332B/T403 3. You will see three icons on the top from left.
If you click the first icon from left, you can see "Investigation window" then open
the firmware file that you already downloaded to the temporary folder. 4. You will see the message" Ready" after finding the firmware file that you want.
Then click the middle icon on the top of left. Then your firmware will be upgraded
automatically. 5. When you finish upgrading firmware , reboot your pc automatically.
■■Sfdnwin.exe : A program which can make your drive download our firmware(s) in Windows.
(It's for only Windows)
I had the same exact problem and thought the ROM was broke but it still played CD's. It's funny because when the problem started I thought I had really messed something up, and it turns out there are massive forums like these for the exact same problems. I hope I can ease a few minds w/ this. I'm running Windows XP, 1G ram, 100GHD.

I'm using lenovo y500 series 4EQ laptop/vista home basic.however my DVD drive (matshita DVD-RAM-UJ-85JS) doesnt recognize dvds, blank DVDs in certain but it recognizes cds that came with the service pack

It may be necessary to upgrade the "firmware" (software residing inside the DVD unit) to recognize the "newest" of blank DVD media.

Each "blank" disk has an identifier electronically written onto the disk -- if the firmware does not recognize that identifier, it needs to be upgraded in order to recognize it.

Check Toshiba's "support" web-site for a firmware update.

My combo drive doesn detect dvd. What could be the reason??

I eventually run into this problem on all mu DVD roms/burners after a while.

Usually a firmware upgrade will fix it for a while, but in my case, it would always do the same thing sooner or later.

I am not saying yours is bad, it may very-well just need a FIRMWARE update. Try that by going to the manufacturer's website and search for downloadable software. If you find the firmware, download and follow instructions on installing. MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!

Hope that helps!
