Question about CD & DVD Burners

1 Answer

CD/DVD won't read

I have a dual boot 2000/XP system. This issue only occurs on XP and only recently without any changes to BIOS or XP system config.

1. I have CD and DVD master E:\ slave F:\ drives. If I boot with E:\ loaded, E:\ can read/write. If I then load F:\, it cannot detect a disc in the bay. If I open then close E:\, it still reads the disc in the bay. If I removed the disc, close E:\ then open and reload the disc, it no longer reads the disc. Still nothing on F:\

2. If I boot with E:\ empty and F:\ loaded the situation is reversed from number 1, above, i.e., F:\ is readable initially and E:\ is not. After opening and closing F:\ bay, it is no longer readable.

3. If I boot with both E:\ and F:\ empty, neither is readable.

4. If I do a hard boot with both E:\ and F:\ loaded, both are initially readable. Open and close F:\ an it become unreadable.

I have a custom machine: XP SP3; 2.4 gig Athlon 64; 1.1 gig RAM; both ROMs are TDK; the master/slave HDs are on the primary, the master/slave ROMs are on the secondary IDE.

It may be unrelated but I have also noticed lately the my modem (ZOOM V92) tends to freeze if I connect after I've been using other hardware devices like the ROM or scanner.

I am wondering if the BIOS IRQ assignments are all of a sudden not to XP's liking??

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks, Monk

    I have the same problem with my acer aspire 5100, my notebook will not detect the dvd drive. I did the regedit fix and it didnt work. I've done a driver scan and the dvd drive (matshita 850s) shows up and has the most updated driver, but the drive does not show up anywhere else on my computer not even in the device manager.

Try this Step 1: Start Registry Editor loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK. Registry Editor starts. Step 2: Delete the Upper/lower Filters registry entry loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); 1. In Registry Editor, expand My Computer, and then expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. 2. Expand SYSTEM, and then expand CurrentControlSet. 3. Expand Control, and then expand Class. 4. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. 5. In the right pane (topic area), click UpperFilters.

Note An UpperFilters.bak registry entry may also appear. To delete the UpperFilters registry entry, you must click UpperFilters and not UpperFilters.bak. 6. On the Edit menu, click Delete. 7. When you receive the following message, click Yes to confirm the deletion of the UpperFilters registry entry: Are you sure you want to delete this value? The UpperFilters registry entry is removed from the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} registry subkey.
do same thing to erase the lower filter then restart your computer

I have installed a SATA SH-S223C on a computer with Windows XP. But now when I try to boot the computer, it freezes on the Windows boot screen until I open the CD tray. Then it will continue on to the...


Do you have any CD in the tray, first would be to remove the disc if present as boot from CD would be first option in BIOS.
Get into the BIOS by pressing the appropriate key some systems it is the DEL key or F2. In bios select Advanced Bios Features.

Select "Bootable add in cards" with keyboard and keep pressing + until it is in the first location.

Set first boot device as Hard Disk and then save and exit BIOS.
F10 is shortcut to do this.

If you need to boot from CD next time just change first boot device to CDROM.

Usb dvd writer can install xp?


Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

Set-up not working on sony dvd


After reformatting a computer, inserting an optical disc into a drive will not allow it to autoplay (there is no operating system to take control of the situation). If the disc is bootable and the BIOS is configured to allow booting from an optical drive, restarting the machine with the disc in it should allow the system to boot off of that disc. If this is the problem you are trying to describe, press whatever key (F2, F12, Del, etc) allows you to enter your BIOS setup program and ensure that your computer will attempt to boot from your CD/DVD drive, save your changes, and allow the computer to reboot. This should solve the issue.

Hi,

you need to go into bios at startup, press F2 Or Delete Or Esc on bootup. When you get into the System Bios. Change the boot device priority from HDD To CD/DVD To boot first.
Save/exit And when you reboot ( with windows XP in the Drive ) you,ll get options to format or re-install.

Pioneer DVD Burner no longer reading burnt disks...


yes your quite correct, starforce once installed can damage the fimware more so for multi writers, a common problem will be slower recording speeds. It can even damage the hardware itself and render the writer totally useless. If your getting to that stage, for the price of a new writer, it's not worth the worry, replacing the drive is the only answer.
