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.

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?

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)

2 x 500 gb wd black sata hdd's

Ati hd 5850

Belkin n1 wireless card

Error - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Device Driver Is Missing

Windows 7 upgrade ultimate 64bit from windows vista home premium 64bit - error with "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. I can see many posts for this problem, but the different solutions all confuse me. I am not a pc techie. I was trying to run windows 7 64bit ultimate upgrade from windows vista 64bit home premium on my pc. Before i ran windows 7 upgrade using the 64bit disk i bought from a retailer in sheffield england, i checked on the microsoft website and downloaded windows upgrade advisor.

This reported a number of minor issues, which i dealt with. It did not report any issue with my motherboard or cd/dvd device. I also downloaded easy transfer, but as i had recently rebuilt my pc i did not have many files to copy over so i have not yet used it. I have now rolled back the install, after getting very frustrated trying to obtain the "driver"some of the postings on the web suggest:buying an external usb cd/dvd device. I might do this and try again getting an update for ite it8211 ata/atapi controller driver - whatever that means usb install option involving ripping the disk into a iso image and then making a bootable usb stick.

Why on earth do i need to do this? Surely using a usb external dvd/cd device and putting into that the windows 7 upgrade disk will do the same job?More important what is an iso image? How do i create it? Why should i have to do this?This software has cost me gbp180. 00 when i bought it from currys retail store sheffield uk w/c jun 21st 2010, and i cannot get it to work. It is not at all satisfactory! I deliberately waited till now before buying to make sure a all the bugs were ironed out!

Obviously they are not!My pc was bought new from mesh in may 2009 and the build detail is:mesh desktop pc model xgs pii 955amd phenom ii x4 955 black quad core processor am3 3. 20ghz, 8mb cache ddr2/3asus m4a78-e mainboard amd 790gx hybrid crossfirex - am2+ phenom ii, ddr2- atx8192mb 800mhz dual channel ddr2 sdram2 x 750gb serial ata2 hard drive with 3mb buffer (1. 5tb) raid 0 configuration (stripe)samsung 22x dual layer dvd writer super format +r/-r/rw/ram this shows in device hardware as tsstcorp cddvdw sh-s223b scsi cdrom device.

The driver is located in c:windowssystem32driverscdrom.sys1gb ati hd4890 graphics accelerator hd 3300 gpu - hybrid crossfire xpcie gigabit lan controller featuring ai net 2 - asus m4a78 proi will also try to call microsoft support on 0844 800 2400 using access code 1233 when prompted. However, i wonder if anyone else who has had the same problem with a similar machine can advise how they sorted out the issue.

Asus Drw 22b2s Cd/dvd Drive Driver Error

When installing windows 7, i have finally managed to get past the installation screen without it blue screening (that, however, is a whole different story) and now it stops before the installation begins, complaining that the cd driver can not be found. It then proceeds to look for the driver (on the cd drive, no less, proving to me that it must be working decently enough) and finds nothing. Browsing for more folders reveals nothing.

System info: i'm installing the 32-bit version from from a dvd onto an old machine with an 80gb hard drive and sufficient ram. The only dvd drive is an asus drw 22b2s cd/dvd drive, for which there are no drivers available online, nor did it need any to run on windows 2000 which was the previous os on the machine (however i've wiped the hard drive for the installation). The copy of windows 7 is a legit version, but still won't install. I've been browsing through other topics here and on different sites and none of their solutions work. Is there a way to get around this - or better yet, a solution?

Code 52 Driver Error - Lg Cd/dvd Drive Won't Install

I recently got a new computer. I am using windows 7. When i got it a couple of weeks ago the cd dvd drive worked fine. I have and lg super multi dvd rewriter 22x model gh22ns40. When installing a western digital external hd, i contacted wd customer service and the technician had me change some things and since then my cd dvd drive will not work. When i go to computer, the cd dvd drive is not listed. When i go to devices and printers and click on the pc icon the hard ware list shows the cd dvd drive with a yellow exclamation mark. When i pull it up the message reads, "windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)"

I uninstalled and reinstalled the drive with no success. I down loaded the current driver from wd with no success. I tried a system reset for a date when the drive was working, and that didn't work. I can't use the instillation software that came with the drive because the cd dvd drive doesn't work. I am sure that there is a switch or button some place that needs to be changed to for this function properly, but i can't find where it is.

Message - No Disc In Drive - Can't Burn Picture Cd

I selected about 40 pictures from a gallery folder to burn to disc. I get a window that opens and says "files waiting to be burned to disc" followed by a list of the selected image files. I click 'burn to disc', and am prompted to put an empty disc into the cd-rom drive. After i do, and after closing the drive door, i get a 'checking disc' msg. In the window. In a few seconds the drive door opens, and i see this message: "there is no disc in the cd or dvd burner".

"Please insert a writable disc into the d drive". This drive plays discs fine, and i had no problems burning when i used vista, but after a hd crash, i upgraded to win7 and this is my first attempt at making a disc. Is there some compatibility issue here?. Device mgr. Says the device is working. The driver is up to date.
