DVD burner won't recognize dvds

vbimport

#1

I first realized I had a problem when I tried to burn a dvd. It failed… so I tried several other programs. All failed. I then went into troubleshooting mode. Checked dma (still not sure why it’s not on according to nero log). Finally I stuck the dvd into the burner to see what happened… nothing did.

My dvd burner won’t recognize any dvd. It sees data dvd-r’s as blank dvd media , and I can get audio and data cd’s to play fine.

I have 2 drives hooked up via IDE cable. One is an(offending drive) Aopen 16X8 Dual DVD±RW combo drive=master, and the other is a Sony DVD rom=slave.

The Sony plays dvd’s fine. But the Aopen won’t even recognize a dvd. I put the dvd in and the light goes solid for about 10secs and then starts blinking at a steady pace. Under my computer… (after inserting a dvd) the icon changes from a dvd rw drive, to a cd drive.

I’m not sure how to upgrade the firmware for the drive because I can’t find the model #. On the drive, the model is listed as MODEL: 16x8 Dual. I’ve googled the PN and found nothing. I’ve checked the aopen website and they show no way to identify my drive. I do however, know that the current firmware version is A070 and that the drive was manufactured 01/18/05.

Below is the error log from nero in the case that it might yield a clue as to what my problem might be. I would sincerely appreciate any help :bow: and thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:
There’s something very odd here with this malfunctioning drive. Try and email Aopen’s tech support and describe the code numbers you can see on the label adhered to the drive. They can then surmise its model number and suggest a firmware update, which just might solve your problem.


#3

Ok… I sent an information request via Aopens website and I’m waiting on a reply. I believe I have a Generic DVD burner that was originally made by aopen and repackaged by another company but I’m still not sure which model it is. I bought it from newegg.com about a year ago and alas… I threw away the documentation. All I have is what I could get through Nero InfoTool:

Disc Information (E:)

Type : - no disc inserted -

If anyone has any information about what model this is or what firmware I need to upgrade to… It would be greatly appreciated… :bow:


#4

Please identify your media.

If nero thinks your DMA is off, chances are, it’s off :wink:
If you have it set to DMA if available, and it’s using PIO, then you will need to refresh the IDE devices by deleting the IDE controller for the drives.

After restarting, windows will redetect everything & renstall the correct drivers.

If that fails, isolate your burner on one of the ide chains.


#5

I may be mistaken, but you probably have the same drive model that a no longer open Microadvantage used for there drives. It should be an AOpen 108 or 1608 (something like that). You should be able to crossflash to the AOpen firmware.


#6

I tried to cross flash with the aopen firmware and got the error “cannot flash this device”. I’ll just have to wait for Aopen to let me know the exact model # and go from there on firmware.

Ok… while I’m waiting for that, I’m still having problems turning dma on. I’ve followed all tutorials and when I run nero… it’s showing dma is off. I’ve removed my dvd rom drive to the secondary IDE channel and under device manager DMA is showing it’s on. Anybody got any Ideas what I’m doing wrong?


#7

Does it now recognise disks?

Benchmark it using Nero->CDSpeed.


#8

It reads cd’s fine. It just recognizes dvd’s as blank media. I posted my current dma settings above. My dma is still showing off in nero though.

It is still failing at the END of the disc, the most common place for media with poor quality control to have poor quality.

Please identify your media.

Stick one of your discs into the drive, and run the nero infotool.
It’ll tell you what your media is.
Or run nero->CDspeed with the quality test. In the top right corner, it’ll tell you your Media ID.

Alternately, try a dvdrw, rather than the DVD+R that you are currently using.


#10

If your drive was a microadvantage heres a link to the upgraded firmware (crossflash) to an aopen 1608 then a 1616 then you can go to aopen and update to the latest firmware-Remember this is at your own risk. Look at 521 in this link. http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?p=1377775#post1377775. I would also get rid of nvidia drivers and try using microsofts drivers and also get rid of nero incd if you have it. Good luck…


#11

The blank media I’m using is CMC MAG E01… (TDK) but I don’t think this is my main problem. Here are the symptoms in a nutshell.

  1. Stick a commercial dvd in and it:
    a. causes the Icon to change from DVD-RW Drive (E:) to CD Drive (E:)
    b. causes the led on the drive to go solid for 40 seconds then it blinks insessantly 300 times per minute after that.
    c. Under Nero InfoTool the dvd shows as blank dvd-r media.

  2. All settings on my computer show dma on… Nero always shows DMA off.

  3. My DVD Rom drive plays DVD’s fine.

I’m still waiting on confirmation from Aopen on what model my drive is. I took a chance earlier and tried to cross flash with aopens duw1608arr_111.exe and it would not allow it. I’m afraid to try another till i’m sure.


#12

Semi-reliable media, but not unknown to have issues.

Typical of a DVD player auto-playing or Copy-protection utility program attempting to unlock the drive.

Hmmm …
Might be time to uninstall your IDE drivers & install M$ standard IDE drivers.

Wrong firmware. Your drive is a 1608, but not the arr version.
Try here. http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?download_id=1999


#13

Thanks for the flash link… I flashed it with that firmware and still the same stuff.
Now… How do I go about uninstalling my IDE drivers without uninstalling all nvidia drivers?


#14

Right Click on the IDE device (PATA) and select update driver.
-> Install from a list or specific location
-> Don’t search, I will choose …

It should come up with a few NVidia drivers & a
"Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE controller" or
"M$ standard dual channel IDE controller" or similar.

Install & reboot.


#15

Ok I removed the Nvidia P ata controller and now the drive letter has changed… I put in a DVD+R disc and windows recognizes it as a blank cd… :sad:


#16

Doesn’t actually sound like a problem yet… Have you tried burning something to the DVD?


#17

The good news is that my dma is now on for both of my cd drives in my nero error log… so we can now rule that out.

Yes… I tried to burn to the dvd+r that it recognizes as a blank cd. Above is the log.


#19

It’s odd to me that Nero InfoTool Recognizes the disc as a blank DVD+R but windows cannot. I inserted a DVD+rw and nero won’t recognize it at all… (no disc inserted). I put in a DVD-R and It also says no disc inserted. All of this media is supposed to be supported by the drive according to nero.


#20

Sounds like you’ve done everything possible re-IDE and DMA. I would send a further email to Aopen pleading desperation. I would also, if possible, take a digital photo of the drive id-label and attach it to your email to help them id the drive. Might also help if you did this here as someone might recognise exactly what it is. When uploading be sure that the photo has been saved as a well-compressed jpeg otherwise it might be a little too-big for the forum’s software to upload.
