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?

Re: DVD Drive Issue
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 .
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

VISTA OR W 7 IT IS.
HP a6642p (SUPER OLD DESKTOP)
CIRCA 2010.. ?

HAVE you gone to HP.com and loaded the drivers for this yet?
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.
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.....)
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:
According to the site below, the drive can burn dual layers discs:
"The 20x DVD multi writer opens up new dimensions for flexible read and
write functions. This high-performance DVD/CD-burner is able to read
your DVDs at a speed of 16x and CDs at 48x. It also brings fascinating
dynamics into play when writing your blank disks. Now it can even write
DVD-R DL two layer media at 12x, while reaching a speed of up to 20x
for DVD+R and DVD-R. DVD+R9 and DVD+RWs are processed at 8x and DVD-RWs
at 6x. And DVD-RAM can be recorded with up to 12x DVD speed. So how
fast can it burn my CDs, you might ask? Even here, with speeds of 48x
(CD-R) and 32x (CD-RW), it’s at the top of its class."
