Question about Toshiba SD-R6372 (SDR6372S) DVD±RW Burner

DVD DRIVE WONT READ ANYTHING

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??

I have the same problem, only when I tried to burn an ISO it messed up BOTH of my DVD drives (both were daisy-chained to the same IDE cable). I thought maybe it messed up the motherboard, so I bought an external USB to IDE case and tried my burner on my work laptop via USB and had the same problem, even after upgrading the firmware. This seems to be an example of a hardware virus of some sort.

If clone burning is successful then rub the dvd with soft cloth and again put it on the drive. If these will not solve the problem then wash it with warm water and a detergent.


I once do these and get the files.

You do not mention what type of blank DVD you are using. My personal experience is that many brands of blank DVD-R's have problems in DVD burners that are not the same brand. To a lesser extent, this also happens with DVD+R's.

The reason is that because of patents involving the technologies each DVD disc and DVD burner manufacturer has, the dye formulation of each manufacturers discs varies greatly. If this does not complicate matters enough- laser power, bandwidth, and recording schemes vary between the DVD burner manufacturers.

The safest route is to use DVD media manufactured by the same company as your burner- in your case, Sony. If you can locate blank Sony DVD+R's, they will give you the best results.

If you cannot locate blank Sony media, I have personally had the best results with TDK, Ativa, and Memorex DVD+R's and I avoid using DVD-R's because I end up throwing at least half of them away due to bad copies.

You could try diferent burning software.it may even be a hardware fault the dvdr drive.cds and dvds burn and read data from inside to outer edge.as the laser moves out twards edge the speed of disc changes to compensate for larger distance travelled so a worn drive can sometimes start to show this fault.also sometimes only play half a film or stop at track 10 on cd

The drive plays DVDs and can read doc files, but


This problem is normal and exists with many CD/DVD drives.
On some of the drives, if you put in blank discs and try to open the disc in My Computer or Windows Explorer, Windows displays no contents or a blank disc. Whereas on other drives, you get the error message that you mentioned about incorrect function.

What software are you using to burn CDs or DVDs? Are you able to burn CDs but not DVDs or you can't burn both the discs? Did you try a CDs with a different make/manufacturer? Some drives refuse on some disc makes. Try another disc and another writing speed, or try the lowest writing speed available with your software.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

Blank dvd not readable


Do you have software capable of writing to a DVD?
Its no good having a drive that can read a DVD - that is all it can do without software. I suspect that is why it is chucking your disc out!

If you have no software then look on the net for some free stuff - plenty about, or buy Nero

Various issues can cause drives to occasionally balk at writing optical discs. These run the gamut of physical, hardware, and software troubles.

Inappropriate or dirty media may be to blame. Make sure to match the type of recordable disc to the drive, and check each disc for fingerprints or other contaminants. If a disc is dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft cloth in a straight line from the center hole outward. Try a quality optical drive cleaning disc if you suspect dust contamination on the drive’s laser lens.

Some discs don’t perform well with certain drives, even within their rated speeds. Try recording at a slower speed and then with a different brand of disc. Also, on PCs, verify that the temporary file storage area on the hard drive used by the burning software has enough free, defragmented space. Allocate at least 5GB for a DVD (9GB for a double-layer [DL] disc) and about 1GB for CD burning.

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.
