Sony DW-D18A problems, please help

vbimport

#1

I purchased the DW-D18 a few months ago, I never really used it yet for burning. I always used my laptop burner for burning DVD’s. My dads computer crapped out on him so I sent him my laptop until he could get a new one.
I installed the software for the burner and whenever I open the program I get
a message stating that the drive is not supported. I then tried using Nero, It doesn’t even recognise that I have a DVD-+R at all. So I looked in my computer and XP only recognizes that it is a DVD-RW drive when there is not a CD or DVD in it. When I put a blank DVD in the drive it automatically changes to CD-DRIVE, but when I take the disk back out again it changes back to DVD-RW.

I have tried several types of blank DVD’s including DVD+R, DVD-R and DVD-RW, and still have no luck.

Can anyone please help me.

Welcome to cdfreaks. Good first post :slight_smile:

See if this helps. Using device manager, delete the IDE channel that the drive is connected to and then reboot your system.

Moved to the LiteOn Forum

Hello, I’m new too!

I have EXACTLY the same problem with a brand new Sony DW-D23a… going to try the above…

It’s really annoying…


#4

No joy… uninstalled the secondary IDE, restarted, and on putting in a blank DVD the drive turns from noting it as a DVD-RW drive to a CD-Drive.

Any ideas? :bow: Pleeeeease? :sad:

edit - on entering or trying to enter the drive with a DVD in, it says “drive not accessible: incorrect function”.

It reads CD’s and DVD’s alright though.

edit2 - just tried the two programs above and got the same results… only a couple more read features (w00t, but not as the thing DOESN’T WORK!)… DVD-Ram in the CDIdentifier on both options is listed as “no”…

I had this problem a while back, unfortunately too long to remember how I fixed it but try these steps… 1)make sure the recording box is checked under drive properties in my computer. 2)try disabling IMAPI cd burning under serivces tab of admin tools. 3)check aspi layer for corruption and/or 4)uninstall device in windows and physically remove then reinstall and reboot. I really dont remember exactly what I did but it took me much trial and error, goodluck


#6

Thanks for the tips and the time! A couple of questions if I may and a rundown-

  1. Done, but it now fails to copy folders to it and still lists it as a CD Drive when a DVD-R disc.
  2. Hm, it hadn’t started… oddly… enabled now but no difference.
  3. Don’t know how to do this!
  4. I’ll give it a shot.

#7

OK, found out the aspi drivers weren’t installed according to aspichk.exe, so I installed the latest version I could find from adaptec…

http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/driverdetail.jsp?sess=no&language=English+US&filekey=aspi_471a2.exe

Did nothing.

D’oh.


#8

OK, I’ve forgot to mention I’ve got a Samsung 304-B Combo DVD/CD-RW as the slave.

I’ve changed the cables around and rebooted after uninstalling too. Reinstalled. No luck. Still listed as CD-Drive.

Any ideas?


#9

just more suggestions… try downloading forceaspi (aspi 4.60), download dvddecryptor if you don’t have it and try to burn a disc. Also did you say IMAPI was enabled?..You want to disable it.

Side Note: make sure DMA is enabled under both IDE adaptors in device manager (won’t help your problem but will help you once you get it recognized by windows correctly)


#10

Thanks! OK. I’ll disable IMAPI.

Checking around the net, it looks like I’m not the only one with this problem!

Here’s some links I’ve found on MS support (I’ve also contacted Microsoft support) -

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;826510

I’ll give the rest a try and report back! Thanks again!


#11

Hm.

No luck. I also downloaded the Nero ASPI for Burning Rom, didn’t make any difference… other than the Nero wizard disappeared! DMA is enabled for the IDE adaptors too, IMAPI is disabled.

BTW is DVD decryptor soley for burning disc-to-disc, or can it do files as well other than ISO’s? Can’t seem to tell. All I want to do is the usual drag/drop of files in XP and burn that way.

Or do I need newer software other than Burning Rom or simple XP? Doesn’t seem to explain the CD-Drive listing with media inserted though.


#12

Try forceaspi, it comes with a program called killaspi which will remove the existing layer then u can install 4.6 which is way more stable. Of course, all else fails try restore to an earlier point with system restore if you can or a fresh install of windows…that has helped me many times when all else fails (but last resort). Just dont give up it is a software issue more than likely, not the burner.


#13

Here’s a couple of other things to try.

1/ If your using SP2 and have Nero install, make sure that you upgrade to the latest version.
2/ Remove the slave drive and change the jumper on the DVD Writer to slave.
3/ Make sure your drive is on the end of the IDE cable as master and the other connector as slave.
4/ If none of this helps, use Nero Infotool to produce a report (with all options checked) and post the result as a text file attachment.


#14

OK, tried forceASPI which didn’t work either… thanks noneed, I appreciate the help. I agree it’s more likely a software issue as the drive reads things no problem.

C0deKing, thanks to you too!

  1. Yup, I thought of this last night when I read EasyCDcreator requires an upgrade to work with SP2.
  2. Haven’t tried that. Will do.
  3. That’s what I did last night! Occured to me when noneed mentioned reinstalling.
  4. I’ll do this anyway.

Thanks again!

OK, Nero 6 seems to help but the drive still reads as a CD and I’m only getting a 4X write speed when it should be 16x. RW speed is 4x.

Thanks, C0deking! No ideas anyone? :frowning:


#18

Nice looking drive. :slight_smile:

What media are you using and what speed is it rated at? You can use DVD Identifier to find out the media ID code and you can use Smartburn to find out the maximum speed the drive can burn it at.


#19

Ok, I’ve now looked at you report as well. There are two things that I don’t like.

1/ Pcouffin driver. Every time I see this problem these drivers are installed. Do you know what put them in. Was it CloneCD?
2/ ASPI 4.71 is a no no. Remove it using ForceASPI/KillASPI. Then if needed you can install 4.61, but you may not need ASPI at all.


#20

Thanks for all your help C0deking… it really is much appreciated and very kind. I had a system failiure related to me g-card driver yesterday and ended up wiping the h/d, hence my late reply.

Part of my problem was drag/dropping into the DVD-R, which apparently you can’t do. So that’s that problem sorted! I also found out the drive change is a windows bug. Nero 6 works fine - just the speed is the problem still, even after reinstalling windows.

As for the report - I don’t have ASPI 4.71 any more, Nero 6 has its own ASPI drivers I guess. The Pcouffin driver was something I tried to get the thing working, which is no more either! :slight_smile:

I’ll check into the programs you listed. Again, MANY THANKS!
