Insert A Disc Error For Dvd Rw


Whenever i put a dvd rw in a drive , message showing as insert a disc. Os is windows 7. Before i formatted the new dvd rw as flash drive option and i copied the files using windows explorer. On next day i tried to copy another file but message showing as insert a disc. I tried on windows xp system, showing the copied files only but remaining bytes are 0 bytes. Actually dvd rw capacity is 4. 7 gb and copied files memory is 1gb only. But on windows 7 system showing nothing and showing message as a insert a disc. I tried with imgburn software for erasing the disc but disc is not recognizing by drive. Other dvd/cd's working fine with dvd drive. Pls let me know the solutions for it.

Error - Insert A Recordable Disc - Dvd Drive Does Not Work

Op: dvd drive does not work right with windows 7 with digital photos i have taken, i want to be able to do a slide show on a dvd that can be watched on tv. Any dvd that i put in, i get the message, "insert a recordable disc". All i can figure out is that maybe it has to do with the cd/dvd drive. I have a hp computer with a atapi dvd a dh16aal ata. The computer came new with windows vista already installed, then we were able to upgrade to 7 which we did.

Error - Please Insert Disc In D Drive

Error: "please insert disc in d drive" when trying to copy some pictures onto a disc. Original title: reads some discs in cd drive but not others. I use my computer mostly for gaming, but he other day i needed to copy some pictures onto a disc. I put a cd-rw disc in my d drive and when trying to copy i got a message "please insert disc in d drive". I tried this with many discs with the same result. D drive will read my game discs and other discs that have pics on them. I even took my blank disc and put it in my laptop and my laptop said it was a blank disc like it should. What do i need to do?

Dvd Drive Wont Read Disks - Error Please Insert Disk

I recently upgraded to windows 7. The drive worked fine as i used it to install the os. On start up windows wouldn't recognize the drive. Finding that this was a common problem on dual boot win7 x64 i tried the 3 standard fixes (f8 on start up, change letter of drive, upper and lower field reg edit) i briefly had the drive working but after about 10 minutes (while i was using the drive) it crashed and disappeared.

I went to the manufacturers site and downloaded the latest software for it, windows installed this and said it was working fine, i can now see the drive but it wont read anything, every time i put a disk in (any disk) it tells me the drive is empty when it isn't and spits it out. I have tried the windows troubleshoot program from the support site, it detects a problem but cant fix it.

The device manager shows the drive as installed and working. The lens shouldn't need cleaning as the drive is less than a month old. Please help, i've run out of ideas.system - dual boot xp / win 7 x64, xp on samsung 1tb hdd win 7 on maxtor 200gb hdd, 4gb ram, intel core 2 duo 3ghz, asus p5g43m motherboard, nvidia 8500gt gpu

Disk Boot Failure Insert System Disc

I have recently built a new i7 920 computer with new components such as motherboard (ga ex58 ud3r) and new sata ii hdd. The sata is connected to one of the many sata ports with a sata cable. There are also two gsata ports but not sure whether the hdd is supposed to be connected to it. A dvd drive is connected with a 'ribbon' connector to the motherboard but not sure whether it should be connected with the end connector or the middle connector (the ribbon wire has 3 connectors, one connected to the motherboard and one to the dvd with one spare connector).

I have windows 7 home premium upgrade as i have a key for vista. The bios detects that a hdd and dvd drive are present (hdd as ide master 1 and dvd as ide slave 4). I set the bios to boot from cd-rom, however there is no option for dvd-rom. I insert the windows 7 home premium upgrade dvd and reboot the computer. However, i still get the "disk boot failure, insert system disc" message. Is this because i cant boot from an upgrade dvd or that it is still not booting from the dvd?

Copy Disc Using Dvd Maker

Ok. Every time i go to windows dvd maker and i try to copy a dvd i made i run into several probs. First, i  have to select "all the files" because nothing shows up under "media/video/picture files" in the d drive otherwise. After selecting everything from my dvd, some of the files still get rejected from being transferred anyway!. Then when i go to click "burn" and it says i need to put in a "blank disc" which i do. After it burns for a minute and gets to about 70% it says cannot burn anymore because of a "invalid pointer. " What is that? Can you not copy a disc using windows dvd maker? If so how?

Obtain Xp Mode On A Dvd Or Cd Disc

How can i obtain windows xp mode on a dvd or cd disc? Downloading via my dial-up connection is not viable for a 469mb file (i tried). I have windows 7 professional 64bit and am trying to obtain the windows xp mode file so i can create the virtual windows xp environment. I only have a dialup connection, so estimated time for a download of the 469 mb file is 28 to 32 hours. I obtained windows 7 with a computer from hp, so microsoft will not provide me with support without a $50 charge. Hp tells me that they are not authorized by to make a copy of the file and mail it to me. I also am unable to use a friend's dsl to download this file, as they have windows xp, and mircosoft, prior to download, checks the operating system to assure compatibility with 64 bits, and prevents the download. No one else i know has windows 7 professional 64bit. The microsoft supplemental and replacement parts desk told me they do not have a disk with either the windows xp mode or the virtual windows xp environment, so they can not help.

Media Player 12 Cannot Play Dvd - Disc Region Problem

I have tried to play a home made dvd in wmp12 on my pc recently upgraded to windows 7. The dvd won't play giving the dialogue "wmp cannot play the dvd because the disc prohibits playback in your region of the world. You must obtain a disc that is intended for your geographic region". This is strange because the dvd is four years old and has played happily in win xp and vista on wmp prior to the upgrade to windows 7. Is there anything in wmp 12 that would cause this and how do i get round it?

Excel Insert Picture Does Not Display

We have 2 identical dell systems, one with xp and one with windows 7, both running office 2007. When i create an excel document on the windows 7 system and use the insert picture option, the document will open on other systems but the picture does not display (just the outline of the box). If i create this same document on the xp system everyone can open the document and see the picture. The file is being saved on a server running windows server 2003. Even systems running windows 2000 can open the xp version of the document. I don't know how to solve this problem other than to downgrade to xp (not a pleasant experience).

Disc Read Error

So back when i was reppin' xp, i believe i had a disc read error that prevented my computer from functioning. Since i am not a computer whiz, my solution to the problem was to wait for windows 7 to come out, which came out about a week after i had the error. A quick fix.

So i managed to install windows 7 and salvage my computer, so to speak. After the installation, every time i booted up the computer, the computer did not take me straight to the log-in welcome screen. Instead i was confronted with 3 options; run xp, run windows 7, or run in safe mode, i believe. (I am not entirely sure of this because this screen no longer occurs, and i quickly adapted to scrolling down to the run windows 7 option instead of inventorying the options into my memory. ) So this sufficed, and i had no qualms with the odd starting screen because, _, the computer worked.

Fast forward a couple months and i was confronted with a bootmgr issue. Not knowing what that was, i looked it up and was able to get a program on a disc to help alleviate that issue. This allowed me to use my computer for 2-3 days, but with intermitten and gradually increasing computer "hiccups". What i mean by a hicuup is that my computer would freeze, in the begining for maybe a minute, and then it would unfreeze and i was allowed to use my computer again. These were not programs freezing, for my music would halt as well as the other program i was using at the time. After a time period elapsed (of my computer being frozen), my computer would spit static through the speakers and start playing again, with the song proceeded. So i missed part of the song, and i resumed doin' work.

As i mentioned before, the freezes progressively got worse. From 1 minute long freezes to 30 minute freezes, to freezes which i presumed were infinite. ( For the last freeze, i went downstairs and watched a movie, as a reference to how long the freeze could last. It was frozen when i returned). Eventually i was no longer able to even access my computer in a functioning state.

Going back to the bootmgr program i put on a disc, i was able to access a very limited program that frankly did nothing, which was probably due to my lack of computer competence. After a couple of days of trying to manage that, my computer failed to even load that program. Now i am confronted with this; a black screen, with or without the disc for the bootmgr, with a blinking cursor. After the cursor blinks a couple times, a disc read error text appears and offers me the option of restarting through ctrl alt delete. Restarting does nothing but further a cyclical response of disc read error.

What do yall think?

Dvd Maker Encoding Error

I'm trying burn some files but the encoding always stops at 0. 6% before generating the following error.

[Window title]
Windows dvd maker
[Main instruction]
Cannot create the dvd
[Content]
An error occurred when burning the dvd.

[Ok]

A bit more background info:

- I'm running windows 7 pro
- I haven't got any other burning software (such as nero) installed
- There are 11 . Vob files to burn
- That's 106 of 150 minutes
- There aren't any effects or customized menu

Has anyone got any suggestions? Searching on the internet shows that there are people who are experiencing the same problems, but i'm not even sure what codecs are and how to check whether i have the right ones.

Unknown Dvd Maker Error Message

Here is a frustrating problem i am having with windows dvd maker that no one can seem to explain. I have a new computer, less than a month old, running windows 7. I have been trying to burn some home movie clips on to dvds for various friends and family. I completed 3 or 4 dvds successfully. All of a sudden, during the burning process, i get to a point about 0. 3 to 0. 4 percent encoded when i get an error message that the dvd cannot be made due to an unspecified error.

Every fresh, new, out of the package disk i try to use ends up with the same message. The clips haven't changed, the filters haven't changed, the settings haven't changed, i've just done a few successfully with no problem, now all of a sudden it can't burn any more discs. What happened? What do i need to do to fix it?

Dvd Drive Stopped Working - Error Code 32

I have just finished installing windows 7 pro 64 bit onto my pc and for the first few hours, my dvd drive worked fine. Now i boot up the next day and the dvd drive is gone from the "computer" folder. Now i am highly skilled at working with computers and this error has me stumped. When on the device page from device manager it says "a driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)" for the device status. When i look at the driver details it actually lists two drivers, the first being c:windowssystem32driverscdrom.sys. And the second being: c:windowssystem32driverspxhlpa64.sys.

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the drive. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the ide driver to no avail.

My computer specs are the following:

Amd phenom ii x4 810

Gigabyte ga790fxta-ud5 motherboard

8 gb g. Skill ddr3 1600mhz ram

Lg gh22lp20 dvd burner with lightscribe (this is what i'm having issues with)
