Test Corp CD/DVDW TS-L532U

Hello Folks, I am a newbie and could do with some help!
I have a Laptop (It was built for me by a local firm so does not have a brand name). I am running windows XP SP3. The chipo is Intel 532mhz, 1GB ram and 150GB Hard drive

I have a CD/DVD writer Samsung Test Corp CD/DVDW TS-L532U. It recently stopped writing. It still reads CD’s and DVDs ok. I ran the Microsoft ‘FIX IT’ and it reported that ’ This Drive is not Capable of writing media’

Seems strange as it just recently stopped writing.
Can anyone offer any suggestions?

cheers
Scotty

Or try Imgburn build mode: http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=1779

At least your blank disc is recognised, which isn’t a bad sign :slight_smile:
