I have a MAJOR! problem.. first ill give you as much information as i have and solutions iv already tried to stop repeating the situation, like some crappy tech phone line lol.. no i do not wish to turn my laptop off for 30 seconds and switch it back on.
I currently have an Acer Aspire 9300 running on windows XP professional SP2
I recently started to have this problem with my DVD-RW drive, i have burned discs before, data disks, image files, movies, audio and copied disks, but really recently i burned a data disc as im planning a complete OS reboot to a new OS. at this point what OS im switching too is irrelevant as i haven't made the switch over as i have Files i CANT! lose. however after i burned the disk and entered it back into my laptop the disk drive showed a disk with 0 bytes on it, 0 bytes free. and when clicked. My Computer decides to become unresponsive and the only solution is ending it in task manager
i tried doing this. trouble shooter by microsoft where i had to reg edit, and delete upper and lower registry files.. it was complex but i have no fear ias i dont think i did anything wrong, as after doing this i can now SUCCESFULLY watch standard DVD's that are packaged and bought from the shop. like American Pie. but i still cannot view anythin i have personally burned. Data disks, music, movies.
im completely flummoxed
I had a look for the drivers for my DVD-RW drive.. but the sony website has none that i can find.. maybe i need some sort of firmware update or perhaps it something else
Optiarc DVD-RW AD-7530a
ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
if anyone knows of anythin i can do or they need more information from me, in anyway to help, or figure out a solution to this problem id be glad to provide more.
sorry for being so long
