    mine is exactly the same problem but it still occurs even after using the fix described





    this drive was the original drive of my computer and the problem has started occuring around the same time i installed a new dvd SATA drive. (although it did work ok for a few days)

    I have the same problem on my laptop. It is a toshiba running windows XP. I have done nothing to the driver since purchasing it, it is all in original program and equipment. It used to work, but now it doesn't. I have tried the first of the thre reccomended solutions. I don't think the other two are applicable. I have never touched the interior cables of my laptop, and my driver has a tendency to just start and stop whenever it sees fit. Most of the time, however, i cannot use it.

    It has a power supply, and every time i put a disk in it tries to read it, but cannot, due to the I/O error.

Method 1: Change the transfer mode for your CD drive in IDE Channel Properties
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
2. Under Computer Management (Local), click Device Manager.
3. On the right side, expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.
4. Right-click the channel where your CD drive is connected, and then click Properties. Typically, this channel is Secondary IDE Channel.
5. On the Advanced Settings tab, in the Transfer Mode box for the device that represents your CD drive, click PIO Only. Typically, this device is Device 0. Then, click OK.

If the issue is not resolved after you change the transfer mode for the secondary IDE channel device 0, your CD drive may not be located there. Use the same procedure to change the transfer mode back to DMA if available. Then, repeat these steps to change the transfer mode for IDE devices in the following order until the issue is resolved:
• Primary IDE channel, device 1
• Secondary IDE channel, device 1
Note Primary IDE channel, device 0 is connected to your boot disk. This is the hard disk that typically contains your operating system.

OR

Make sure that all cables are connected correctly
If you have another cable, try to use it. For USB devices, try to use another USB port. If it is internal dirve is there then Reseat it that means remove it and reinstal that
Then Set the BIOS as Default for that restart the system and before windows screen it gives the instructions how to boot in setup once you are in setup, on the bottom it says press F9 or F10 to set as default; different BIOS have different options so do the as the on screen instructons says.

OR

Try to access the media or device on another computer; try it on your friend or family computer
if it is not working contact your H/W Vendor

Hello page305,

IF you can use it in the server then there is no problem with the drive. There might be a problem on the network settings, if you have double checked the settings you can try to restart bought of the computer the server and the other one. You can also try sharing it with administrator access. And also if it is a dvd you can try updating your video player software for codecs.

Please reply if this doesn't solve it so that I can provide the right resolution.

Computer does not recognize it as a CD RW drive


When you try to write data to an optical disc, you may experience any of the following symptoms:

* You receive various disc write error messages.
* You experience issues with the drive and the built-in recording feature of Windows XP.
* You experience issues with third-party programs that you use to write data to the disc.
* You cannot read the disc in all versions of Windows.
* You cannot read the disc, or some files on the disk, by using an MP3 player.
* When you add files or folders to a disc that already contains data, some files are lost.
* Recording files to the disc is inconsistent.
* The disc recording operation is consistently unsuccessful.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Troubleshooting specific errors
If you experience one of the following errors, follow the appropriate steps to resolve the error.

* There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a writable CD into drive.
This error can occur if the CD-R drive or CD-RW drive is not recognized as a recordable device. This error can also occur if the device driver has been corrupted. To resolve this issue, see Method 3 in the "General troubleshooting" section and Method 1 in the "Advanced troubleshooting" section.

* Drive not accessible, incorrect function
This error message typically occurs when you try to write to a CD-R or a CD-RW, and the Windows XP built-in disc recording feature does not recognize the CD drive as a recordable drive. This error message may also occur if specific third-party programs are installed. For more information about how to troubleshoot this error,

when you access the CD-ROM drive, the DVD-ROM drive, or the CD-RW drive
* Error Deleting File or Folder.
Cannot delete file name. Files on this CD-ROM drive are read-only. You cannot copy or move files over to this CD-ROM drive.

This error message can occur because individual files cannot be deleted from the CD-RW. You cannot use the CD disc recording feature of Windows XP for random-access storage while you are writing to disc.

To set the service to Automatic, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc /s, and then click OK.
2. Double-click IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service.
3. Under Service Status, click Start.
4. Try to write data to a CD.

make sure it is not a DVD disk you are trying to insert into your Drive because your Drive is a CD-RW will not read DVD nor burn onto it.

Your disk may be damaged or corrupt and the drive cannot read it.
your drive may need a firmware update from Sony.
use this link below to access Sony's website to download drivers.

My dvd drive is not video files but it is reading data files


What OS are you using?
In windows go to the Control Panel+ Performance Maintance+System(system properties) + Hardware+ Device Manager from the list select disk drive and select the one that you are trying to access and on the general tab make sure that the drive is enabled.
NEXT In my computer right click on the drive and properties make sure auto play is selected for music. And then also if you have more than one CD/DVD drive you it can possible that the drive is set not to play video and music. The too you will find in the properties menu.


Thank You good luck

Hp cd writer cd12d


Hp cd writer does not require drivers on windows unless it is Windows 98/ME or earlier version.
a: drive error, it is an error with floppy, or floppy settings, not cd.
If floppy is present then floppy drive is probably faulty and in need of replacement.
You can bypass the problem accessing to bios setting. Usually you have to press a key on startup to start bios settings.
Once you access settings you have to change the error prompt setting. The computer will start the same but you won't be able to use the floppy.
