Error code 37 on dvd rewriter

My dvd rewriter isn't being recognised by real player or media player. I thought it was the driver so I installed a new one but the same thing keeps happening. A message comes up saying that error code 37 can not be resolved. Please help.

    Thanks IrishDruid but it didn't solve the problem. Any other ideas. Downloadig Nero is a very last option as I would like to get the driver up and running again.

  • soulstar Apr 24, 2008

    One other thing, when I click on uninstall driver it removes the whole entry not just the driver so that you cannot go on and finish scanning. Is this normal? I got round it by not deleting the driver and simply following your instructions from there. Could it be that I'm doing something wrong?

    Hi IrishDruid,



    No luck I'm afraid. I changed the IDE cable as suggested but to no avail. I've also tried your first suggestion several times but still no luck. Someone suggested that I clean up the registry. Not sure what this is or how to do it. Can you help or do you have any further suggestions?

Hello soulstar,

Error code 37 means that the driver returned failure from its DriverEntry routine. Try the following procedure:

1. Go to your device manager. START>CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM (If using XP, make sure you have chosen 'classic view' from the left side panel)>click on the 'Hardware' tab and you should see DEVICE MANAGER. Click this button.
2. Find the entry DVD/CD ROM DRIVES and click on the + sign next to it. Now you should see your DVD rewriter listed there. Double click this.
3. In the box that pops up, choose the "Driver" tab.
4. Click the button that says 'Uninstall Driver'.
5. Once this is done, right click on the DVD entry again and from the menu chose "Scan for hardware changes" to reinstall or upgrade the driver.
6. On the 'General Properties' tab of the device, click 'Troubleshoot' to start the Troubleshooting Wizard and follow the on-screen instructions.

Hopefully, this should resolve the problem..

    You could try using another DVD burning software like Nero DVD burner. That should resolve the issue. You can download it free HERE.

    Please uninstall it completely and follow the rest of the procedure. If that still does not work, do what my colleague davecon says, and try to change the IDE cable (cable between the drive and the motherboard) and restart the PC.

    Is it not recognized only in WinMedia and Real Player, or does it work otherwise?

    Do you have the latest versions of your dvd driver, windows media and real player? Try to get the latest versions and try.

    Also try this. Once you have uninstalled the driver through the uninstall driver button in device manager, the entry for your dvd writer will disappear. Close device driver and reopen it. You should still see an entry marked "DVD/CD=ROM DRIVES" in the first page. Now right click this and select "search for hardware changes", if it doesn't already do it automatically.

    If all this fails, then your best bet is to download Nero and use that instead. Besides, it can be used for writing other files to your DVD as well apart from just movies or songs...

Dvd player wont play and when it does my computer automatically restarts


Have you installed the correct driver for your DVD player? Chances are, your computer is not properly communicating with your computer or your DVD player isn't compatible with your computer. To automate your driver update, you can install Radarsync to your computer.

If updating or installing the driver won'f fix the issue, then I suggest that you contact your DvD player manufacturer and check whether it is compatible with your computer.

I hope this helps.

Have video but no audio when playing dvd movies in wmp 11


Solution:
Well i could recommend another free video player instead of Windows Media Player 11. In this case, try installing Real Alternative, VLC, GoomPlayer all lf them support DVDs format.

I recommend Real Alternative over all 3 of them, to get it go here:
1) http://www.videohelp.com/tools/real_alternative and click on the "Download (mirror)".
2) after download is complete start the installation make sure to UNCHECK the following checkmarks during installation: Active X, and pluggin for firefox/opera/chrome/etc. you can leave the rest of the installation as default and click next all the time.
3) whenever you want to play a DVD close WMP 11 start Media Player Classic (installed during the real alternative installation, there should be a shourcut icon on your desktop for Real Player Classic now) on Media Player Classic go to File>Open DVD and you should have picture and sound.

Another extra side note of Real Alternative is that you can also play real media files (.rm, .rmvb) without having to install the nasty Real Media Player application

Hope this helps.

Do you have to have "Secure Disc" installed before you can burn CD's? How do I transfer my music from windows media player to a disc using the external burner? Sorry, I'm computer challenged. ...


hi frankie;
you can use third party software to burn your songs into the disc or you can use the built in burner of Windows. What operating system are you using? some things you need to check before burning:

1. cd-rom capable of burning?
2. is it a cd rewritable or a dvd rewritable?
-you can use cd-r or cdrw on dvd rewritables but not dvd-r/dvdrw on cd rewritable.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1. locate the songs you played on your media player in your computer,highlight it and right click one of the highlighted mp3 then select copy from the list
2. Insert the cd into your optical drive ( cdrom or dvd rom).
3. Open My computer and double click your optical drive icon.
4. Right click on the empty space inside that window and right click mouse then paste
5. There should be a link at the left side of the window that says "Write these files to CD"

***frankie; i would just like to remind you that the music burning im referring to is mp3 music, if you want to burn audio cd, you need 3rd party software for that.

Some cd players(discman, etc.) only play audio music format and not of mp3 format. Provide me details of what you want to do and i will help you. :)

Have you tried other dvd's?? because you may just need the codec.
If your dvd drive doesn't recognise your dvd disks, you can try to update the drive's firmware (go to the manufacturers website to download). If this doesn't work i would say you need a new dvd drive.
