Samsun SH-s202N & Nec Rewriters will not burn DVDs over past fews
Over the past few weeks suddenly burning Cd's & DVDs freezes system (XP Prof) using Cyhberlink Power to Go. Installed new drivers,Tried different burn software, different CD & DVD makes, cleaning lens etc. Wondered if it was Service Pack 3 install that upset it. Have 2 rewriters same happens with both.. Will burn Audio CD but freezes system at the end & cannot close anything, have to unplug - even Alt,Ctl,Del doesnt work. With DVDs all looks as though it is starting, at first burnt to 99% but froze system on lead out track & never closed DVD - now since swapping memory progress times goes up but it never starts writing. Burned Audio CDs are playable but not the 99% writtenDVDs & Cannot Close them., although data written on to them . Tried safe mode re-install, tried different burning software. Have now reformatted & same thing happens. If hardware problem, why 2 rewriters not working (one less than 6 mths old (Samsung Dual Layer & NEC). Tried swapping memory (2gb) & working with one, now will not even start DVD burn, whereas beforeit would write 99%.Up until few week's ago all was going perfectly & other than updates cant think of anything new to alter it (Im not an expert user only novice)

Hello, our great IrishDruid gave me a link to you, Can you try the drives on another pc if the problem persist there then its most likely a hardware issue in the dvd drives, you can try upgradeing the firmware on the drive. Also even if its unlikely check the cables.

Try using a quality dvd lens cleaner. Run it a cycle or two of cleaning then retry the dvd. If it works it was just a dirty laser. If this doesn't correct the problem then it might be a dvd optics issue. Hope this helps.
Check the jumpers on the back of the drive to ensure you have no conflicts. There are 3 settings M, S, CS which mean master, slave and cable select.
Cable select requires a special cable in your computer with fine pitch 80 wires, usually with one blue connector at the motherboard, one black for the master drive and one grey for the slave. This colour code is not used by all computer manufacturers, though and they may all just be grey.
If you have this cable, make sure the jumper on your drives is set to CS. Otherwise, on each cable (there should be 2 in your computer and the hard drive should definately be master on one) you can have only one master device and one slave.
in the world the cd dvd creaters are using a new format of cd dvd making old players obsolite due to piracy these new cd dvds are becoming a pain a way they make you go out and purchase new players with updated formats
i found this out a few months ago when i bought a dvd from store it wouldnt work in a 7 month old dvd player so i got to thinking about it put in older cd that worked did a little investigating i want to know why new cd dvds werent working low and behold i found a tech site for the cd dvd compile build formats there it was piracy is getting knocked out by new cd dvd format this is so you cant copy direct to or from disks
if your older disks worked in drive and older disks burned in drive 9 out of 10 the problem lies with in new disks and what i explained up top
i hope this help you in your quest
I figured out what was causing the problem with my NEC 6500A on my Dell laptop: The Sony Picture Motion Browser software that I was using to burn DVD's is only compatible up to Service Pack 2 of Windows XP. The day after I installed Service Pack 3, the software stopped burning DVD's. So I uninstalled Service Pack 3, rebooted, unistalled the Sony PMB software, rebooted and re-installed the Sony PMB software and I can now burn DVD's again. So check whether the software you're burning your DVD's with is compatible with whatever version of your operating system you're operating with. Hope this helps someone else!
Have the same problem, it used to work and suddenly it wont do it
anymore. I guess this is due to windows XP updates. Windows says that
the driver is up to date and I also installed the latest firmware. I am
using Nero 7 to burn. I had troubles before but somehow fixed it. Now
when I insert a DVD (data) and try to open the dvd drive the whole
computer hangs. The content shows for a moment before the computer
freezes so it IS in the DVD.
It may be a dual laser type burner and the dvd laser has faulted, you can try using a cd/dvd cleaner to clean the laser.
Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete.
Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers
