Can not read dvds

I need to have one final archiving of all my data dvds which I have created over the years I have about five hundred but many of them are no longer being recognized by my DVD reader. I mainly used ROXIO but as many of you know, ROXIO realy doesn't give a damm about there problems. They will respond to your letters but they never really have any solutions. Sometimes the disk will give me error mesages, ''D'' DRIVE INCORRERCT FUNTION> Sometimes the d drive will appear and disapper on the insertion of new dvds. I can sometmes see that the file type read RAW but can not get to the files. Especially my rewrittable dvds . They ask me to format them and state that the disks is full-- as the color part of the icon shows a full disk, but the numbers say 0 as though the disk can be used again. I don't want to erase over data. I reformatted my hardrve but I still get these poblems. when the weather turns cool i INTEND to have one last week of gettting everything right, but I need a program that can read all dvd files and then I will send them to my hardrive and re write them to a more stable external hardrive.ROXIO STATES THET MEMOREX DVDS ARE PRBLEMATIB BUT I HAVE OTHERS THAT I CAN NOT READ AS WELL I NEED A RAW FILE READER THAT CAN TRANSLATE ALL DATA FILES REGARDLESS OF THE DVD BURNING PROGRAM THAT CREATED THEM.

    I am afraid that that didn't accomplish a solution. In fact I received an error mesage stating, "Windows can not creaet that type of file " My dvds were created using Windows XP. I also have many dvds with files that won't allow me to send them back to my hardrive as the message keeps reporting"Cylic Redundacy Errors can not copy files./ Sometimes I clean the disk and it copies, but mnay of the times I just give up.Is there a program that can read raw files and create an ISO file so that I may burn the data files anew?

Is that the original version of Windows you made them with?Since I do not know,I am just looking through mine to see what I can come up with.If your current computer is the 1 you made them with,all the rest is probably just wasting time,however,desperate times call for desparate measures right?Try right clicking on your shortcut to your DVD drive,with a disc in.Click on properties.See if it allows you to change or even select a version of Windows to change to under previous versions or at least look around and see what that will let you do.This is really starting to grasp at straws but something has to be done or you will lose alot of info.If you don't mind me asking what is on those DVD's?Also on control panel,hardware and sound option,under autoplay there are some options to play with there.Under system and security option,click system,click device manager,and see what it says about your DVD player.Under system and security,click in administrative tools,click on create and format hard disk partitions,I guess without disc in yet so you do not accidentally overwrite,it opens up a window where you can selct C,D,or E(as I said I labeled mine that),and there are actions you can do from there.Action,all tasks,properties,customize may force it to read.uh uhuh I am out of breath.Like I said,grasping at straws here.Good luck!I would like to hear back from you too.

    I GET ERROR MESSAGES AFTER RUNING THE MICROSOFT FIXIT APPLICATION THAT STATES THAT THERE IS NO DRIVE ASSIGHNED A NUMBER IN FACT I SEE THE LETTER ) WHEN i TRU DEVICE MANGER. i CAN STILL PLAY SOME DVDS BUT HOW DO i ASSIGN A DRIVE LETTER /

  • Greg McCarthy Aug 05, 2010

    Do you mean to play the DVD it wants you to assign a drive letter?Just create a desktop shortcut to the drive.When it's on the desktop,right-click on it,and a menu will pop up and just select rename it,hit enter after you name it.That won't do much I don't think though.What Windows do you have now?If it is different than what you wrote the DVD's with,did you try the first idea I suggested about trying to run it with a previous version of Windows?I have had a couple of issues where that worked.Stupis technology.They need one called Windows ALL.LOL.Good luck.Let me know if anything happens.

  • phillyjoe Aug 21, 2010

    the latest try that I have found some help is when I unistalled the following in device manager " DISK DRIVES0WHATEVER YOUR HARDWARE STATES AND THE WORD (read).2) DVD/CD ROM DRIVES AND BELOW THAT THE WORDS CD ROM DRIVE(this is a event that is recEntly reappeared !) 3) FLOPPY DISK CONTROLLERS 4 STANDARD FLOPPY DISK CONTROLLER 5) FLOPPY DISK DRIVE THEN STEP 6 FLOPPY DISK DRIVE9 STEP 7 IDE ATA/ATAPI UNINSTALL ALL ITEMS LISTED UNDER THE ABOVE MENTIONED INCLUDING INTEL STORGAE CONTROLLER==PRIMARY AND THEN SECONDARY CHANNEL CONTROLLER=IEEEE 1394 BUS HOST CONTROLLER THEN OCHI COMPLIANT IEE 1394 HOST.CONTROLLER UNINSATLL EACH DEVICE DON'T JUST UNINSTALL DRIVERS THEN LET WINDOWS REDISCOVER THE DEVICE.

My DMR_E80H recorder does not read blank dvd-r disks


I don't have a solution but I am having the same problem (same model DMR-E80H). It will read finalized dvds but won't recognize or play blank or non-finalized dvds. About a year ago I had to replace the hard drive . . . I'm just assuming that the dvd recorder is just slowly breaking down and will need some kind of repair of certain components. (I think we bought it new in 2003/2004?)
