DVD writer sudden problems

By cazeault ·

My DVD writer Matshita DVD-Ram UJ-845S suddenly does not recognise ANY CDRom or DVD home made ! No matter where it comes from (different writers).... The CD not recognised are brand names not blank mass CDs or DVDs.

However commercial DVD or CD (plus the one from mags) are fully recognised...

It worked very OK for about 10 monts !

Anyone have any idea ? can it relate to any patch for Win? I have Win XP Pro sp-2 with all current pacthces installed.

Many thanks

Sounds as if it's time for a replacement

DVD Drive as your's is going bad when it no longer recognises any recorded media.

I'm taking it for granted that other DVD Readers can read the media and that it hasn't been destroyed by improper storage. If that latter is the case you have a lot of drink coasters and nothing else but if they are readable by different players your DVD Burner is at fault. It's a Hardware Problem not a Software Problem.
