Do a search for PC Fixer, a free tool. I had this problem on a Gateway I was trying to add this drive to. PC Fixer fixed the CD-ROM problem, but the drive seems to not be compatible with the Gateway for use as a master boot drive.

The flames are uneven, i have the ceramic v shaped covers fror the burners, not charcoal or rocks. the heat is all at the back, it gets very hot there and is corroding the burners and the ceramic...

What you have is a bad case of clogged burners. At least the ends closer to you. This will require removing & cleaning the burners and the venturi valves (part of each burner) to thoroughly clean them
This will also provide you a closeup inspection of all the burners for any accessive wear, or rust thru.

Once the burners are removed, use a brass bristle brush to clean the exterior of the burners and then gently yet firmly tap them on something that want damage them, Then turn them so the open end is down and any debris will fall out. Also clean the Venturi valve on each burner. It will be on the burner tube, where it fits over the burner orifice. It will look like 2 slots (1 on each side) cut out of the burner tube. Spiders like to build nest in them. After you have completed all of that, reinstall the burners, turn the gas tank back on Very, Very Slowly and give them a test. You should see a significant difference.

Hope this helps you solve the burner problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

Maybe it is the disks you are using. Perhaps a bad batch. Perhaps there is something patially covering the laser and inserting a cleaning disk could remedy the problem too.

New DVD burner won't read blank DVD-r's.

Make sure your burner software supports your burner. Older software doesn't read and write the newer burners properly.

Your plea sounds as if the Burners work pretty hard. It seems to me that you have laser burnout. There is as far I know noway to check this You will simply have go get a new one by hook or by crook. You could peruse this list to see if anything turns up.
