Question about Hitachi GF 2000 DVD-RAM Burner

1 Answer

DVD Ram Disks

We have a Hitachi DVD RAM GF-2000 DVD ROM Drive. We had to repair our Windows 2000 PROF Installation and did not have installation disks for our Drive. I was able to get the drive working and it will read two of our disks, but the other three disks ask to be formatted. I felt like I needed a different driver version but cannot find the location of one to download. It may not be the driver however. What could be wrong? nikknak

Sounds like it's just fried... Sorry... There is a universal driver for CD-rom(same with DVD-Rom drives) drives that windows uses.. so if it doesn't work it's not cause of the drivers(especially if you just reinstalled windows or it was just repaired since it reinstalls the drivers from the cd)

I am trying to reinstall windows xp prof but i keep getting the blue screen and the system keeps shutting down, i have tried a different hard drive but get the same error.

unplug all devices except the hard drive and 1 cd/dvd rom drive. disable the audio device and any other unnecessary devices within the BIOS and remove all pci cards. remove all but 1 ram stick, and try using different ram sticks, one at a time, while trying to boot. if it boots, with 1 ram stick, 1 hard drive and 1 dvd/cd drive then try adding/reenabling the other devices one at a time, until you find the device that keeps it from booting.

if your pc wont load with just a hard drive, cd rom and 1 stick of ram, then it is prolly trashed. if removing/disabling one of the other devices (such as the sound card or the modem card) allows it to boot, then you have found what needs replaced.

    Windows goes off with the msg 'NTLDR is missing'

    NTLDR errors are usually caused by defective RAM on the motherboard. Try removing one of the RAM sticks on your board and see if computer works fine. If still gets error msg, swap the RAM stick and try again to narrow down which stick is faulty. Sometimes, its simply some corrosion on the RAM contacts which in that case, you only need to re-seat the sticks.

    Hardware

    If your motherboard can take 2GB, then yes, but you need to go to www.crucial.com and run a system test and it will tell you what your board supports.

    Can I playback my movies on a DVD-ROM drive?

    No, DVD-RAM disc recorded on the DVD Camcorder will not play back on every drive. Some of the new DVD-ROM drives designed to be compliant with the new DVD-RAM book2 standards will playback discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. Many previous DVD-ROM drives on the market that came out before the DVD-RAM standard was released will not play back discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. HITACHI manufactures DVD-ROM drives for some PC manufactures as OEM products. HITACHI model GD-7500 DVD-ROM has DVD-RAM read/write compatibility.
