Question about DVD/Blu-ray Drives

DVD Drive Issue

As soon as I put a blank DVD in to my Optiarc AD-7170A drive, it burns something to the disk as it opens a new window, that would allow me to drag & drop content to this disk. Problem is I am trying to burn a DVD through Pinnacle Studio 10.7, and it just locks up or completely and abruptly reboots?

If the drag and drop feature of the system is working to burn DVDs , this means that the drive is working as designed . You are facing a problem with a software conflict.
Try the following steps
1. Uninstall and Reinstall the Pinnacle studio 10.7
2. Go to Control panel >User > Try creating a new user account and login using the same after rebooting the system,

3. this file will automatically remove the Upper & Lower Filters from the windows registery. (Saves a lot of time!!).

Scroll down a bit and you will find a download link that says; "Download guided help", just click on it and save the file on the desktop and double click to run the utility. It's fast easy and safe.
The above file tends to delete duplicate entery for the burner in the registery.

If none of the above things work, you may have to reinstall windows to take care of the conflict of the software .

My dvd drive recorder/


A common and annoying problem. This is nearly always caused by a disk that has had an attempt to be burned but did not succeed, The disk is now useless as it has had a tiny fraction of data burned on to it making now impossible to re-use.

If it is a CD/DVDRW, try erasing it first.

My sony dvd didnt read any disk i put..


Just had this Problem and I found the follow solution elsewhere (instantly fixed the same problem for me!!):

Try to turn off the vista's burning feature.

It's not yours or anyones burners....just an update in vista which buggered the policies up

Go to your run command and type (start.....Run.....)
type gpedit.msc
Go to User configuration/Administrative templates/Windows components/Windows explorer
On the right pane, double click on "Remove CD burning features" tick the enabled button, then OK.
Reboot or logoff/logon to apply.

If your vista version does not have the gpedit function, do the following.
Open regedit, go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

In the right pane, if it does not already exist, create a new 32-bit DWORD value. Name the new value as NoCDBurning, and assign the value data to 1.
Reboot or logoff/logon to apply.

This should fix the problem
it worked for me
pass this round

Which dvd disks do I buy to burn a dvd on my optiarc dvd rw ad 7563a ATA Can I add later batches of pictures? can I reuse the DVD disks?


DVD media has several types:

* DVD-R ("write-once-read-many")
* DVD+R ("write-once-read-many")
* DVD-RW ("write/erase/rewritable")
* DVD+RW ("write/erase/rewritable")
* DVD dual-layer ("write-once-read-many")

Some CD/DVD-writing software allows multiple "sessions" (write a bunch of files, do not "close" the disk, much later write a bunch of files), so that you can "add" files to an "open" ("non-closed") CD/DVD disk.

I dont' know if i can burn dual layer dvds with the optiarc 7561s


Here is a link to the specifications of your burner.

Look in the Technical Specs and under supported media format they have listed "dl".

If anything you may have a firmware update available. (you can check on this site for any available ones).

Hope this helps.

Windows vista updated and now my optiarc dvd rw drive won't work


You will have to uninstall the drive and reinstall again. I think the drivers for the drive is not properly installed. But if all this does not work, then I think you will have to do a system restore.

Best wishes

Cd rom recognised as cd audio


They will definately need drivers to be able to give out 100% of the performance.
You definately might have receive a disk while purchased the CD/DVD ROM.
Try that driver once and see the difference.

Windows Media Center cannot detect a video DVD in the DVD-ROM drive, even when I have inserted a DVD into the drive This is the driver installed in my computer: Optiarc DVD RW AD-5540A ATA Device


Unless you use a DVD player software like power dvd or others, you can not watch dvd on your media player. This is a copywrite and license related issue. DVD players are paid players and this is why, microsoft can not include it on windows.

If you are not willing to buy a player now, try vlc media player instad (click here to get ) . Its free ofcource.
