Problem with the dvd writer



[qanda]This thread is about the Optiarc AD-7170A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]ok so in device manager it appears to be working perfectly. the product is named “Optiarc DVD RW AD-7170A” and windows says its working fine… the other thing to notice is on “my computer” it says its a cd drive and not dvd. any help would be great. and no it doesnt write, when i use a program such as nero and similar programs it says it is but onc ei put it in a dvd player its blank


Classic windows bug, if it works don’t worry.


no but it doesnt write dvds


Can you post a log of a typical Nero burn?

Fails at the start? at the end?

As albert said the log file should provide more info about the error.

Does the drive read the disc?
Have you tried to do a verify on the disc?

Hope you are using good quality media.
