I have a DELL Inspiron 1501 laptop
Windows XP Professional
and my DVD Combo is
Pioneer DVR-K17YA SLIM 8X DVD+/-RW
Burning software is Ashampoo Burning Studio
DVDs are Sony DVD+R 120min./4.7GB AccuCore
It worked perfectly up until now. I was burning a dvd yesterday when it finished half way through and ejected the dvd. So I trashed that dvd and started on a new one. Every now and then I’ll get one bad DVD in a spindle.
When I tried to write a new dvd it gave me an error of saying it couldn’t read the disc. So I went online searching for help and went to Microsoft’s site and removed the LowerFilters that it suggested. Rebooted, Removed the software, Removed the DVD from device manger. Also updated the Firmware from Dell’s support site. I can read and write CD’s but can’t burn or read DVD’s anymore. Any help would be appericated and I hope this is detailed enough for some help on what I can do to get this back up and working. If not I will have to go and buy an external one and just make this one into a regular cd-rom
