BUrner Haunted. please help THANKS

HI
I’ve been using Memorex cd to burn my stuff on. When I came back from vacation i put in a cd of pix made by a ROXIO software. My Cd rom started running really loud but i could access all the pix

Afterward my burner would not recognize my blank memorex cd (i’ve been using them for at least a yr).(And it would recognized the memorex i burned a while ago) It would recognize other brands but it can;t burn them

The Funny part is that it’ll read and burn DVDs. It won’t read any software CD. Now it just started to recognize my blank memorex. WHen i try to burn songs on it, it will only burn one track and then it says “couldnot burn cd”.

I also had to install Itunes to watch one of my video. (I don’t know if that matters)

I’ve updated the firmware with gateway. I tried burning at a slower speed and a faster one. NOTHING WORK

Could someone please help???

I use Windows XP and i have a pentium 4

how about starting with a config including what drive…

What burner is it specifically?
What firmware?
How long have you been using this drive?

Updating the firmware will not help in such problems.

Clean the drive/lens to start with.

It;s a NEC DVD_RW ND-1300A

THe firmware that I updated is: 9528682.exe - Firmware Flash Update for NEC DVD-RW/+RW Drive 5502922 version: 1.72

I have been using it for almost 2 years without any problems

Today i went on Nero and used the info tool. It says that the “SYSTEM ASPI” is missing files. I did the forceASPI 18.exe and now the WOWPOST is not installed and it says that the “ASPI INSTALLATION IS CORRUPTED” but the “NERO ASPI” is fine.

If u would like i could post the results on here for you.

I tried to clean the lens with a laser lens cleaner, but as i said the drive won’t read any software or anything else than old burn cds, DVDs. I can burn DVD but no cds

Thanks u guys some much for responding so quickly. If u need any other info do not hesitate

Thanks again

Also
this guy just told me that his did the same thing and they had to buy a new one!!??!
I hope i dont have to buy a new one

THanks for ur help

dvd and cd use separate read and write elements so dvd can be ok and cd borked so if that is all it is you might try a cleaner but other than that it might be new drive time

OK this is really weird

I re-tried to burn an audio CD using nero and it worked!!! but i have tried to burn pictures with nero and it doesn’t work. I have tried simply to right-click on the pix and send it to CD drive and then write the files but it won;t work

I’ve tried burning songs with the media player and only the first track will burn. After it says Could not burn these files, but on the cd there is that 1st track

I tried ,again, to put a software cd and it won;t read it. so i can’t clean the lens with a cd cleaner. I would like to clean the lens with a swab but when i opened the case of my computer i couldn’t figure out how to get into the burner(or detach it) to clean it.

PLease help and again Thanks for your fast responses

good luck. taking the drive apart is not for rookies. my guess is if you hit it with swap you will complete the failure

Well when i saw it i didn;t even try. I think if i take this thing out (im about to rip it out too) it’ll be to put a new one in

Here’s my report from nero info tools just in case u guys see something

Nero InfoTool 3.02

I’d suggest to remove ASPI 4.71 and install 4.60 using ForceASPI, even if it would probably change only minor things.
disabling the IMAPI burn engine would be another thing to try.

Okay i’ve tried to put ASPI 4.60 (Cannot install them back, I did a back up and everything. tried ASPI 4.60 and 4.72, restarted ran ASPcheck and everything is now “not installed”. Except nero’s ASPI
I also disabled the IMAPI. Nothin is working

Please help

Thanks

That sounds like a hardware problem.
Only way to find it out is to put it into another computer and test it out.

Buy two new drives! They are cheap!LOL
Try this list, but you are hosed!

Some of the solutions were:
reformat and clean install XP with SP2
cable
mobo drivers
master
update bios
update windows
reflash burner
check pins on the back of drive
IDE drivers
update nero
uninstall DLA and INCD
use a cable by its self
safe boot and delete extra hardware
settings in device manager for IDE and drives
bios settings
flash in safe boot
uninstall drive and reinstall both hardware and software
Check jumpers on back of drive
check IDE cable is installed correctly

Well, as a new 3540A is only 40 bucks…why not buy a new one (after all, 2 years for a USED DVD/CD Burner is quite good) …

YEah
I bought a sony DRU800A from newegg i also bought a DVD/CD rom drive. Before I had just the burner, now ill have the reader and burner so it’ll probably be better too.

IS the Sony 800A anygood? my friend recommended it to me

THanks for all your fast responses. u guys r great

we banish you to the liteon forum :doh: just kiddin. the sony is a liteon so you will want to check in over there

Hopefully your new burner and reader will ‘exorcize the demons’ and you will no longer be “haunted”. :stuck_out_tongue:

Sorry for inquiring about the sony Here !!! LOL

Yeah hopefully it will exorcize the demons. Ill see this weekend. Ill keep u up on that

Thanks everyone

Sony’s are rebadged liteys, but with a “premium” for the sony label.
