Hi, i bought an NEC 7173A optiarc dvd writer a while ago and started noticing that when i burn dvds, i cant play them back. I burn a normal data dvd-r and when i insert the disc back into the drive after burning, the DVD-RAM sign in MY COMPUTER turns into CD-DRIVE and when i try to enter it, a message pops up saying "windows cannot enter it, the disk might be corrupted, or could be using a format not compatible with windows."
However, the disc works fine in my brothers computer and on my laptop. weird thing is when i gave the disc to my friend he got the same problem. Could this be the dvd writer or my dvd-r brand? i didnt think it was the brand since it worked on my brothers computer and my laptop. However, old dvd discs that i burnt with my old dvd writer works fine in the drive and loads fine. its dvds that i burn with the new drive that dont run in the drive itself!
Also, when i had my old dvd writer in there, my StompRecordNowMax program detected both drives in my computer (i got a dvdwriter and a cdwriter), but now it only detects the cd writer and not the optiarc, is this cause of the program? old maybe?
I have Alcohol, Nero, StompRecordNow Max, DVD Decrypter and Daemon Tools installed. can anyone help please?
