Dell Inspiron 530 DVD Burner Issue

The drive is a HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H73N and I can not drag and drop to burn files on to the disk. I get the error "Windows encountered a problem when trying to copy this file. What do you want Windows to do? Retry/Cancel"

I can burn disks by using Roxio, it reads information fine from burned disks. The enable CD recording button is checked, I have updated the firmware for the drive, there are no new drivers that I can discern, the drive has been uninstalled/installed, and I have Repaired Windows. Ideas? Thanks!

I have a dell Inspiron 530 that can only burn with Burning Software (Roxio, Nero)... but can't burn using Windows CD burning... nor will it work with CloneCD or CloneDVD... DELL tech support was somewhere between useless and a peanut butter sandwich.

Tried Firmware upgrades, windows update, spyware/virus checks... everything... it WILL NOT BURN. I have two burners.. LG GSA-H73N and a Samsung S203B... both have exact same problems. Tried reinstalling software, hardware, reboots, swithing order of drives, no joy.

I'd try rolling back to the previous driver, maybe your machine isn't compatible with the latest driver ...

HL-DT-ST-CD-RW GCE 8483B WON'T BURN cd


What software are you using to burn with? Have you tried other CD's? What are you trying to burn? Is the file/files copyright protected? Will the DCD/CD rom play media? Have you upgraded your OS?

Dvd/ cd rom does not read any cd/dvds (not even blanks or store bought) under my computer there is dvd drive there. everytime i click on it, it says to insert an disk, even though there is already an disk...


Sadly it sounds as if the drive has died/is dying. You could try cleaning the head with a CD/DVD head cleaner, as sometimes you can get a tiny piece of dirt on the lens. Another method to try is to blow hard (but avoid spitting!) into the open DVD tray, which can sometimes dislodge any dust. If all these fail, open the case, and check that the cables are securely attached.

Sadly, if none of the above work, the only likely way is to replace the drive itself.

Trying to start computer up and I get a diskette drive 0 seek failure message SATO 0 ST3160815as 4.ada SATO 1 HL-DT-ST DVD+/RW GSA-HT3H B103 SATO 2 NONE SATO 3 NONE


Go into the bios of your Dell and ensure that the Sata HDD 0 is being seen by the bios and that it has not been switched with the DVD. Make sure that the sata cables on the main board are plugged in correctly the hard drive should be in sata port 0 and on some dells it's sata port 1. Make sure in the bios that the Sata HDD 0 is enabled.

Hope this helps.

Problems with getting bootable disks to be read - Dell/VISTA


Solution:

i) when you start your system press button(F8 or F10 or DEL) so that you can go into BIOS menu now     try explore BIOS menu and see whether

  a) SATA 0 - ST325082045 3.ADG
  b) SATA 1 HL-DT-STDVD +-RW GSA H31

   are just visbile(in sense, you can see them in  BIOS writen ), this will make sure system is able to        detect them, we will be assured that your a)HARD DISK b) DVD writer   are working perfectly ......

    if so without any hesitation format or reload system with  Windows Vista....


ii) if otherwise any one of them or both are not visible in your BIOS Menu like a)HARD DISK b)DVD        writer 

   try to open your computer tower and locate cables that are going to ur DVD writer, HARD DISK 
   and reseat them(just remove the cable and place them again), by this way we are making sure that    no loose connections are existing..............you can even try new cables .......

   now restart ur system and go in to BIOS menu and repeat the step (i) .... 

   if you are enable to see any one or both 

      a) SATA 0 - ST325082045 3.ADG ....................HARD DISK 
      b) SATA 1 HL-DT-STDVD +-RW GSA H31................DVD WRITER

  then you are having problem with either HARD DISK OR DVD WRITER  and you have to buy them .....




 
 Thanking you

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.
