I was suggested everything from flashing the drive’s CMOS to deleting lines in the system registry regedit to deleting and installing new ATAPI drivers to installing VERY suspect and dodgy executables that would miraculously fix things, to using different burn programs, to changing IDE Interface Ribbon Cables to changing entire power supplies, and my most hated suggestion of all, “the drive must be broken, but drive’s are cheap these days anyway, just buy a new one. This time around though, nothing was working out. Also, with many wireless adapters it is important to stay current as updates often contain security fixes. I called up the drive letter for my quote-unquote defective DVD Writer, placed the data disc in the drive, closed the tray, ran a simple DIR command and waited for the “device not ready” message. If you did uninstall the DVD drive, perform the registry edit, and reboot the system, I think you’ve exhausted the possible software fixes for ths issue.

Your answer needs to include more details to help people. Talk to a Technician Now! I read so many suggestions and not one of them sounded reasonable, considering that the drive had given me years and volumes of g3t4n burns prior and I had already miraculously brought it back to life before: Posted on Apr 24, I didnt find any of those filters in my regedit section although i prompted as ADMIN, so i skiped the solution, wouldn’t mess around and screw over any reg-keys.

Please assign your manual to a product: Try other disks, try other burning software. This time around though, nothing was working out.
ZIP i am still unsure to why it doesnt read cd but as a precaution, ue cleaner and avoid using cd with too much scratches. The max point reward for answering a question is Once that came up as expectedGt34m ejected the disc tray, walked to my Grand Mother’s sewing room, got a good ol sewing pin no doubt created before the concept of home computers were even fathomable closed the disc tray once again, ran the DIR command again, but this time, while the disc was trying to be accessed, I pushed the pin into the little emergency tray release hole, forcing the tray to eject just enough to grab onto with my fingernails.
Authentically pressed data disc that you do not care if it gets damaged like an old outdated driver disc, AOL access disc, etc. One last shot at a software fix: I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. Thanks for inputs, i’l go with what I’ve got and i will also give them another call. Since the drive not being able to access standard discs with data on it was a gt34b indication of the problem, I booted in a MS-DOS environment using a Windows 98 Boot Disk, complete with CD-ROM support these little f’ers are trusty when you get into trouble.
