If that fails then my suspicion is that either 1) the drive has failed or more likely 2) because you don't have any DVD burning software, windows can't understand the blank DVD-RW disk. Thas basic packet-burning software installed with XP CANNOT write to DVD disks.
However there is a bit more to it than that - the Microsoft CD burning software (which is a cut down Roxio product) cannot co-exist with any other packet burning software (e.g. DLA, In-CD or simuilar) so if one of those is installed you have to DISABLE the MS CD burning capability on the drive settings tab. Even worse, Internet Explorer 8 is not compatible with DLA - which is included in quite a few CD/DVD suites including many of the later Roxio versions
My advice would be 1) un-install any CD or DVD burning software on the machine 2) disable the MS CD burning 3) run that Microsoft patch 4) Install some DVD burning software but DON'T install the packet writing software part of it
Note that after installing that patch you may also have to reinstall any DVD playing software
when you get that error... usually... it's time to replace the drive... but before you do... if you have xp... go to the control panel... double click on system... hardware... then device manager. now... go to the dvd/cd rom tap... do you see a yellow dot and an exclimation in the middle... then replace the drive. if it has an x through it... right mouse click on the drive with the x... and click on enable... it should start working again... if not... replace the drice.
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.
You got a bad laser in the drive not the laser the reads the laser that writes and this does generally happen when a dvd ram drive goes. Recommend buying a new drive as a replacment laser is upwards of $90 bucks, thanks for using fixya please do accept and rate.
: Decreasing the burn speed
If the drive is not recognizing the disc at all, skip to Step 4. Decrease the CD writer's burn speed by half to increase the likelihood of a successful burn. Decreasing the burn speed is a quick, easy way of increasing successful disc burning sessions, at the expense of taking more time to create a disc. The following steps are for Windows XP only. For Windows 98 and Me, decrease the write speed from within the software that you are using to write discs (RecordNow, Easy CD Creator)
Click Start , and then My Computer .
Right-click the drive icon, and select Properties .
Select the Recording tab and reduce the Current Write Speed by half (for example, from 16x to 8x).
Click OK and close the My Computer window.
Try burning a CD. If the drive fails to create the CD, go to the next step.
Step 4: Setting up disc recording in Windows XP
If the computer does not have Windows XP, skip to Step 6.
If you are using Windows XP, use the following steps to ensure that native burning is enabled:
Place a blank disc into the drive.
If the error <drive letter> is not accessible. Incorrect function. " opens, close it and continue using these steps to correct this problem.
Click Start , and then My Computer .
Right-click the writable drive icon, and select Properties .
If a Recording tab is shown, select the Recording tab, select Enable CD recording on this drive , and then click OK . Try burning a disc again. Continue to the next Step if you are unable to burn a disc.
If a recording tab is not shown, continue using these steps.
Figure 2: Enable CD recording on this drive
Look for a Recording tab:
If the Recording tab is not shown, Windows XP has not detected the drive as a recordable device. Use the following sub steps to enable the Recording tab:
Click Start , Run , and type regedit in the Open field.
Backup the registry: Select My Computer from the list, click File , Export , type a name that you will remember, and click Save .
Click OK , and browse to the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives
Click the Volume key that matches the CD/DVD drive that is capable of writing discs. If only one drive is installed, one volume key is listed. If you have more than one drive, examine the data values (by double-clicking them in the right pane) to find the correct drive.
With the volume key selected in the left pane, double-click the Drive Type value in the right-pane.
Figure 3: Drive Type registry value (CDRW)
Type the number 1 in the Value Data field if the drive is capable of recording to CDRW discs (including CD-R discs). Type a 2 if the drive cannot write to CDRW discs but can burn CD-R discs.
A value of 3 indicates that the drive is only capable of reading discs. Changing this value to a 1 or 2 enables Windows to view the drive as a recordable drive.
Firstly ensure the drive letter is correct for your dvd drive, if you still have an old drive fitted as well this new one the drive letter will probably be E:\.
It may be that the bios is not seeing the correct dvd drive.
On boot up press F2 or DEL, this will take you to the 'standard cmos settings' line.
Highlight this line and press enter.
You should then see a list of drives attached to your pc, normally pressing F3 or a similair command(depending on motherboard it will tell you how to do this on bottom of screen) detects all drives.
Otherwise go to each line Pri, Sec etc, and press enter on each to see what appears.
When you see your dvd drive is recognised, press F10, this will save and force a re boot.
Also try right clicking on your DVD drive and go to properties, there should be a tab saying enable writing on this drive, but be cautious as Windows Writing programme may take over from Nero.
