Question about Toshiba (TSDR5372BD00000) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Cannot burn certain files?

Well at first I had a problem with it not showing/refreshing files when I insert different CDs or DVDs, but I fixed that by doing a regedit and making the media you put in autorun. So I think that fixed that, but I still have a problem where when I try to burn say music or multi-file CDs it just hangs at 4% and doesnt really burn anything to the CD itself. First I just tried burning all the files in Nero as a multifile and it would hang at about 4% and then if I wait long enought would say failed. Then I tried making an iso of all the files thinking this would fix it, but it does the same thing. There was one way I tried on the multi-file session where I got it to acctually get to around 50% and then it error'd out and it acctually burned that time, but no files seem to be on the CD? I don't think my burner is broke but maybe? As far as DVDs go I think those still burn without a problem, but I havent really had anything to burn DVD wise for a while but I'm sure it still works, so any help??

    Oh and as far as checking the 50% CD I tried it on another computer as well just so you know that it wasnt my computer problem that I checked it on.

    Sorry for adding so much, but I also remember a forum saying that you should replace a file from SP1 in SP2, I don't remember the file but I got the program to do it. So do you also think that might fix it?

    Come on can I get any help? Maybe the CD part is broke for burning and I should just put in my old 24x Samsung CD burner?

Nx9110 with HL-DT-ST DVD-Rom GDR8082N can it burn cds?

Your DVD-ROM can burn CDs but not DVDs.
To burn CDs Use ImgBurn.

The drive plays DVDs and can read doc files, but

This problem is normal and exists with many CD/DVD drives.
On some of the drives, if you put in blank discs and try to open the disc in My Computer or Windows Explorer, Windows displays no contents or a blank disc. Whereas on other drives, you get the error message that you mentioned about incorrect function.

What software are you using to burn CDs or DVDs? Are you able to burn CDs but not DVDs or you can't burn both the discs? Did you try a CDs with a different make/manufacturer? Some drives refuse on some disc makes. Try another disc and another writing speed, or try the lowest writing speed available with your software.

Hope that helps,


Some players are picky with certain cdrw/dvdrw discs. You might have to experiment with different brands/types for your discs. I used to have a cd player (teac) which would just refuse certain brands cd-r discs but play others just fine. I know it sounds odd, but once I noticed which ones work and which ones don't I never looked back.
Also, have the "problematic" discs been recorded on just one recorder? Have you tried playing discs recorded on a different recorder?
Also - I'm sure you've already tried it-it's always a good idea to clean the laser just in case.
Hope this helps+
Good luck,

Perform a system restore and take the computer back to a time before the problems started with burning, or you can download a different media player and try burning with that, real player as a good bit of software to use for burning and Nero is too (Nero is a devoted burning suite)

Get real player here >>>>>>

Get Nero 9 here >>>>>>

after you downoad, run it, click yes to all filters found to remove. close program.

reinstall your preferred burning app (1 prog installed at a time and test burn)
this is to replace the filter entry that was corrupt

U30274 Burner hangs while writing DVDs

If it were the item you were trying to burn that causes the hanging, in other words a corrupt file, then that maybe the fault, but if it hangs with any other file your trying to burn, either your memory is being used up burning the files or you have a faulty burner, assuming you have tried different makes of dvd disks. Unless you have a dual processor, it's not wise using the pc for anything else at the same time.
