Konichiwa Banjin!. I have a problem, or had, and still have a little bit to solve and i need help with. i own a sony DW-G120A dvd burner, ( my PC operating system is Windows XP SP2), which was working perfectly. it suddenly stopped burning into DVD/R Discs and only read discs i burnt files into in the past and other application discs. i "kind of" solved the problem by going into Control panel->Administrative Tools->Services-> IMAPI CD-Burning COM service and set the Startup type to "Manual". Now i can burn using nero (this is also a temporary solution for those who have thesame problem, which from my observation is LOAD-O-people). the problem here is, once nero burns my files, my pc or "DVD/RW drive" can't/Woun't read the files. it turns out blank. but when i try the CD on my laptop with Vista, it displays all my burnt files like a normal DVD rom.
Another thing is that the drive shows as DVD-RAM Drive when there is no CD in it, but when i place a blank DVD rom in it it shows as "CD-Rom Drive", am pretty certain it should be DVD something. any way, if any one has a solution for this problem, please let me know, cause i would like to burn backups of my files into a blank DVD and Read them on thesame pc, not just my laptop :sad:. Thank you
