ASUS DRW1604P cant write DVD-RW-s

when i start with writing it says that disc is not compatibile with te compilation and also it recognise DVD-RW-s as DVD-ROM discs

any ideas ??

@ aleXa13,

Welcome to the Forum.

It would be helpful to explain in detail exactly what “says that disc is not compatible with the compilation”. In short provide the Software Program name and Version Number of the Program you are using in your attempt to record data.

Also provide the MID (Manufacture ID and Media Code) of the blank Media you attempting to record data to.

Yup, how is the DVD-RW rated?

i used nero 6.6.0.16 and 7.10.1.0 and they both report : sorry,your compilation cannot be written on this kind of disc. Please insert a disc of the correct type or modify the settings of your compilation to make it compatibile with the current disc

disc is PrimeDisc DVD+RW 4X

@ aleXa13,

Suggest insuring that your ASUS DRW1604P has the most current up to date Firmware.

Suggest using ImgBurn (http://imgburn.com)

i have the latest firmware , imgburn doesnt help :frowning:

i just brought Pioneer 112D and same problem appears i updated the firmware and nothing
any idea why is this happening ???

Test that in SAFE MODE.
Obviously some 3rd party software is installed on your system and creates that issues.

What about Alcohol? Is it installed???

@ aleXa13,

Amplifying on Forum Member above comments.

To ensure that you don’t have operations running in the BackGround that could interfere with the proper functioning of your Asus DRW1604P check that unnecessary programs are not automatically loaded during Window Startup. To check this suggest viewing the below Web Link that details how to use MSCONFIG to configure Windows Startup to load only absolute necessary items. You will be surprised at all the unnecessary Memory and Resource wasting items that are automatically loaded during Windows Startup. Quite possibly one of these items could be causing your problem. Suggest when visiting the below referenced Web Link to also check out Paul “PacMan” Collins’ huge “Startup Applications” list (http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php).
