Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

XP unable to recognise my GSA-4163B as a recorder. I have a Benq DVD-rom and the GSA. neither appear to play dvd or cd except by considerable fiddling with eject and reload before explorer recognises that a cd has been loaded. Up until a few weeks ago everything work fine. I recently upgraded Roxio easy cd& dvd vn 6. This apparently signalled the start of my problems. I've re-installed the original Roxio 6 but still got the problem. When trying to run a cd for example, not detected automatically, open explorer, no cd shown. click on cd, says 'load a disc'. The description of the drives changes from DVD to CD-rom as well. When I try to run Roxio disc copier - it says no recordable unit found.

I have a Sony Vaio desktop with XP. My DVD-CD


Have you tried burning a CD in the new drive? Because the drive is a DVD it will always be recognised as a DVD, but should work perfectly well with CDs both playing and recording.

Windows XP 'writemaster' not recognised


There were more problems and I needed a solution fairly quickly. The solution I used was to wipe the hard drive, re-install windows xp and start again. A bit drastic but the problem did not re-occur.
