Vista burning problems

I’ve been burning ISO’s for a long time now using Nero, I recently upgraded my laptop to an HP DV2000 with Vista. I’ve gotten the latest version of Nero, and burnt an ISO. The dvd will not play in my home dvd player which has previously played everything properly, including pals and ntsc. The dvd will play in the laptop and the burn is always completed succesfully. This has never happend before so i’m thinking it has something to do with vista. I’ve also tried the Roxie software that came with the computer.

The dvd drive is a Slimtype DVD A DS8AZH ATA


What about bitsetting it

And how does one do that using Nero

Ive installed Vista and tried to install theVista Ready` Nero 7 without any success at all as at the last minute of installing Nero just disappears into thin air…

I have a new HP Pavilion dv6000 with the same damn slim DVD burner, running Vista Business. Gotta say I’m not impressed with the burn quality. I think this drive really needs a firmware flash. I tried to copy an audio CD using EAC. The rip in secure mode was VERY slow, like 2x. The burn sucked, the CD played like crap with pops, skips and all sorts of garbage.

I don’t know if this is a Vista problem or just a crappy drive. The drive reads data CDs just fine, but seems to struggle with audio.

Any idea who HP gets this drive from? The normal drive discovery utilities won’t run under Vista.

Word to the wise - Stay with XP or Win2k.

Update. The latest version of Nero installed and runs fine. I’ve done a couple more Cd burns and they all worked fine. Haven’t tried to burn a DVD yet.

FIX for slimtype DVD A DS8AZH ATA

Hello All…

I am a CSE for Beaming DATA Corp. We bought some HP

Pavilion dv2000 laptops. There has been some problems with

the dvd drive in them.

the DVD drive is called
slimtype DVD A DS8AZH ATA

A really good drive on an XP machine. It seems there may be an

exploit somewhere in the HP updater. When we update the

driver the drive dies.

Here is the fix:

Run your update or whatever changes you need to make to your

system. Go to the device manager in the control panel and

disable the DVD drive.

You will have to work in the registry because someone is

deliberatly changing the registry and this causes the drive to quit


=== Backing Up Registry and Registry Key ===

CAUTION: The registry contains critical information and a
registry backup is essential. An incorrect registry
entry may cause serious system problems or prevent the
computer from starting. You will not be warned of any
incorrect registry entries. If the registry is not
backed up, the only way to recover the system is to
reinstall the operating system. Do not double-click the
Backup.reg file on the desktop unless you intend to undo
the changes you are making to the registry.

  1. Click Start and type regedit in the text box.

  2. Click “File” in the menu.

  3. Click “Export” from the drop-down menu.

  4. Click the down arrow beside “Save In” and select Local Disk


  1. Type Backup.reg in the File Name field.

  2. Click Save.

=== Deleting UpperFilter and LowerFilter Registry Keys ===

  1. Click Start and click Run.

  2. In the Open box, type regedit and click OK.

  3. Click the plus (+) sign beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

  4. Click the plus (+) sign beside System.

  5. Click the plus (+) sign beside Current Control Set.

  6. Click the plus (+) sign beside Control.

  7. Click the plus (+) sign beside Class.

  8. Locate the {4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} key

and click it.

  1. On the File menu, click Export.

  2. In the File name box, type savedkey and click Save. It is

to save the “savedkey” to the desktop.

  1. Click the REG_MULTI_SZ data type UpperFilters (found in

window pane) and then click Delete on the Edit menu.

  1. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.

NOTE: If this data type is missing, continue to the next

  1. Click the REG_MULTI_SZ data type LowerFilters (found in

window pane) and click Delete on the Edit menu.

  1. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.

  2. Quit the Registry Editor and restart the computer.

The CD-ROM drive, DVD-ROM drive, or CD-ROM R/W drive

should now appear
in the My Computer window.

CD/DVD drivers reinstall:

  1. Select Computer and click on Manage.

This will prompt you with a User Account Control Window.

  1. Click on Continue.

This will open Device Manager.

  1. Click the “+” sign next to CD/DVD Drive.

  2. Click the first device listed under CD/DVD drive to highlight it.

  3. Click uninstall to remove the CD/DVD device driver.

  4. Click OK for confirmation.

Restart the computer by powering it completely OFF.
This is very important because the laptops will hibernate or not

load the corrections in the registry until the machine is powered


This fix will workwith Any modle that has the drive compaque HP


It is a good idea to make a restore point now that you have the

drive working. The machine can be restored if the dive goes

down again.

+R bitsetting is done via the drive’s firmware, depends on what drive and fw you have.

IMGburn has an option for supported drives, just click the little book in the bot right hand corner and change booktype to DVD-ROM.

Nero should it on the drives options (when you select the drive to write) click the options box…should be a little icon next to the device.

This works only for +R and +R DL media (if supported by firmware). Some drives need modified firmware and some support it…some simply can’t do it at all.
