NEC&QSI Reads CD,DVD Well, but no DVD+RWs

vbimport

#1

My slim NEC 6650A on my laptop worked fine.
Till one day it started not reading any DVD +RWs it did before.
I replaced it with my old slim QSI SBW242B, and nada, it didn’t read any +RWs too.

Both drives see factory DVDs well. Or any CDs, either +RWs.
But no DVD+RWs, which they did before.

I am nearly sure that this is a software problem, but not sure about the culprit.

No it is not a DMA problem.(As some might suggest)

It might be because of CloneCD or Alchohol I installed and uninstalled once.
I opened regedit, and removed upper-lower filters, Elbydfl.sys, pfc.sys, pxhelp20.sys, uninstalled driver, reinstalled driver everytime… no solution.

It might be because of Daemon Tools or Nero.

It might be a UDFS.sys problem, or WNASPI32.dll problem.
I am running XP SP2 and UDFS.sys ver is 5.1.2600.2180, which shouldn’t create a problem as suggested by microsoft.

It might be because of intel chipset update, and IDE drivers.

Anybody has encountered something like this?
What might be a possible solution?

I guess I can solve it, but I just need a starting point.
Any leads will be welcome.

Alcohol has been the cause of this type & there have been numerous threads here recently about this.

Apparently there’s a setting in Alcohol about hiding the media type or something similar. This should be unchecked.

Also just uninstalling the once might not be enough as several members have done this but needed to install again & either uncheck this setting or remove Alcohol completely.


#3

Well, I installed Alchohol %120 back, checked the Device Interface(SCSI Controller) to Windows/XP/NT, tried again. No luck. Uninstalled. No luck.

Uninstalled and reinstalled Nero 6. No luck.

Uninstalled Secondary IDE Controllers, Reinstalled. No luck.

Downloaded and installed latest Intel 855PM Chipset drivers. No luck.

Still burned DVD-Rs (the ones my drive used to read well before) gets recognized as Blank DVD-Rs… (With CD writing enabled option. Otherwise I get “Windows cannot read from this disk. corrupted or format not compatible” error.)

I am still guessing it has something to do with media bit settings to confuse windoze, or a file system (UDFS) error…

PS: Yes I tried booting with DVDs, nicely done.
PS2: No I won’t format and reinstall my OS. I will find a solution, either with or without help…
