Welcome to the forum! :slight_smile:

A couple of things - first, DMA is reported to be off for your LG drive. See the link in my signature (“How to check/enable DMA”) for instructions on getting it enabled again.

Second…do you have any virtual drive software installed (Alcohol or Daemon Tools maybe)?


#3

@ Alcohol or Daemon Tools…not now but might of long ago (this computer last formated = 1 and half years ago…and got WAY too much on here to wipe :frowning: till i get an external drive that is) but alcohol yes i used to have that…

Ill try the link you sent and let you know if helped…


#4

It’s possible Alcohol may have left something behind that is interfering with Nero’s ability to see blank media (Alcohol has the ability to make blank discs seem like pressed (original) ones, for emulation purposes).

But anyway, yes enable DMA and see how you go. :wink:


#5

Hi again, Ok one of the channels was PIO and now set to DMA and computer restarted…i checked and its stayed DMA but yet again my drive wont regognise any discs :frowning:

Just looked again at the channels and all are the same bar the one i just changed from PIO to DMA…its says : -

“The current transfer mode : PIO mode” how can i change this ?? no option…i want to uninstall it and reboot comp and get it forced back on but afraid my windows xp might be on it ?


#7

@ Ghost2008,

Refer to the CD and DVD Burner Forum Read First posting titled “Troubleshooting: Enabling/Checking DMA in Windows Vista, XP, 2000, Me, 9x” (http://club.cdfreaks.com/f61/troubleshooting-enabling-checking-dma-windows-vista-xp-2000-me-9x-101616) for detailed information concerning DMA.

Also ensure that you have totally removed all raiment’s of Alcohol from your computer.

Regards,
bjkg

In the link I gave you earlier (the same one that bjkg points you to), you’ll see a post with a link to a resetdma.vbs file in it.

Download and run the “resetdma.vbs” file, and if it finds any IDE channels to reset to UDMA mode, it will do so, then ask you to reboot. :slight_smile:

If it still goes back to PIO Mode after that, I would suggest swapping your IDE cable for a new one.

Resetting your DMA may or may not cure the disc recognition problem, though.


#9

Ok all channels now DMA and staying that way after reboot…however still no recognition on me discs :frowning:

Ill try and find whats the deal is and post here if sorted out…if i cant ill get an external drive and flatline computer…

Oh and yes everything to do with alcohol100 is gone…

Thanks for your time and help guys…
