    I've installed the Nero 8 and still the drive doesn't read any DVDs. I guess the solution could be appropriate for the drive indicated by "chie-chie" (16X DVD+/-RW Dual Layer OEM Black with NTI Recording Software (DWQ28ABK) DVD Drive) but not for my drive SONY DVD RW AWQ170A.

    Thanks anyway, Carlos

Check file extensions of files on your recorded cd's. Add file extension to Roxio, Windows Media player and check your drive settings.

I have a Sony CRX320E CD/DVD unable to write a DVD


CD-RW drives can only read all CD-rom and CD-RW formats and read DVD formats but cannot write to a DVD, if you want to write a DVDs you need to buy a DVD-RW burner which can burn all CD-formats

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.

Pioneer DVD Burner no longer reading burnt disks...


yes your quite correct, starforce once installed can damage the fimware more so for multi writers, a common problem will be slower recording speeds. It can even damage the hardware itself and render the writer totally useless. If your getting to that stage, for the price of a new writer, it's not worth the worry, replacing the drive is the only answer.

Not reading dvds


It says that it's a CD-RW drive- a CD-RW drive can't read/write DVD's, you need a DVD drive. You can pick one up for rather cheap from several online retailers - www.newegg.com www.tigerdirect.com etc.

Not reading DVD


It's common problem with combo drives in notebooks, they don't seem to last long. Try this:- Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers. If the problem persists the laser is faulty in the drive and the drive will need to be replaced.

Problems recording DVD-R 16X


Try this download page to update your firmware from 25/10/05, so if you bought your writer before this date maybe this will work, otherwise buy 8x discs. http://sony.storagesupport.com/dvdrw/firmware.htm#710 The faster the discs are burned the more chance of errors there are, you should write at slower speeds for better quality.
