My sony dvd didnt read any disk i put..


Just had this Problem and I found the follow solution elsewhere (instantly fixed the same problem for me!!):

Try to turn off the vista's burning feature.

It's not yours or anyones burners....just an update in vista which buggered the policies up

Go to your run command and type (start.....Run.....)
type gpedit.msc
Go to User configuration/Administrative templates/Windows components/Windows explorer
On the right pane, double click on "Remove CD burning features" tick the enabled button, then OK.
Reboot or logoff/logon to apply.

If your vista version does not have the gpedit function, do the following.
Open regedit, go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

In the right pane, if it does not already exist, create a new 32-bit DWORD value. Name the new value as NoCDBurning, and assign the value data to 1.
Reboot or logoff/logon to apply.

This should fix the problem
it worked for me
pass this round

Cd rom recognised as cd audio


They will definately need drivers to be able to give out 100% of the performance.
You definately might have receive a disk while purchased the CD/DVD ROM.
Try that driver once and see the difference.

Unable to burn using a LG GSA H58N DVD burner


With the built in drivers for windows XP it can identify and use DVD-RW facilities of DVD burner. However depending on your bios your machine can fail to burn DVDs if your bios can not recognise that output.

While loading the CD that comes with the DVD-RW did you get an error message if yes then it means you BIOS is failing to recognise your DVD-RW as an output method try to update the BIOS. But before you do that if you can try adding the drive on a modern (after 2002) machine with xp and see if it can burn DVDs there without adding any drivers.

if it fails on that other machine then you can be sure its not your BIOS but a problem with drive (which I suspect most actually). But if it works then then you need to update your machine bios.

Matshita drivers on toshiba notebook


Code 39 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Recommended resolution loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation');

Reasons for this error include a driver that is not present; a binary file that is corrupted; a file I/O problem, or a driver that references an entry point in another binary file that could not be loaded.

Uninstall the driver, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall or upgrade the driver.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.

Keep me posted.
