Wonder if you could expand on the problem a bit (dont rate me yet). Is the disc being ejected straight away? Have you tried burning some data to it? What software are you using to burn (if any). Please give any other information including all the things you have tried.

Assuming you have used this make of media before and tried other discs incase you have a bad batch, it could be that your drives laser itself is starting to fail when reading certain media, although it may still be able to read cd's and DVD it may fail with CDR and/or DVD-RW discs.

What driver do i use for my sony mp4 player... model number nwz-s616f.. please help me


Hi,
It is not required to install any Driver for connecting the Walkman Player to the Computer. The Driver for recognizing the Walkman Player as a MTP Device is already installed in the Computer. You can install the supplied Windows Media Player 11 Software for transferring the files to the Player. You can either Drag and Drop the files using the Windows Explorer to the MUSIC Folder which appears as a Removable Drive or can use the Windows Media Player 11 for transferring. If the Player is not recognized by the Computer, try connecting to different USB ports and try re-installing the USB Driver from the Device Manager.
Thank you for using FixYa!

Hi there,

Try downloading the most current Chipset drivers from Acer:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_3050.html

This sorts out most blank media problems. Also, you could try a dvd/cd lens cleaner.

Hope that helps

GSA-2166D recognized by computer but does not recogniz media?


Try removing the device from device manager, then reboot. Windows should then re-detect the device and re-install the drivers for it. If that doesn't work, try the device on another computer. If it still doesn't work, it's probably defective.
