DVD Drive refuses to burn on ANY disc - why?

I've been battling this problem for a month or so now, to no avail.

I assembled this pc myself last year. Overclocked the E4300 to a stable 3.2Ghz on zalman 9500 cooler, and now I keep it at 3Ghz for day to day use.

My computer specs are:

Processor: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E4300 1.8Ghz OC'd to 3.0Ghz
Motherboard: ASUS P5B
Memory: 2x1024MB Elixir DDR2-833 5-5-5-15
Video Card: BFG 8800 GT OC2 512MB DDR3 @ 729 core/ 1808 shader/ 2074 memory
Harddisk: 250GB Seagate Barracuda 7200 SATA-2 16MB Cache
CD/DVD Drive: LG GSA-H44N DVD±RW/±R/RAM
Sound Card: X-Fi XtremeMusic 7.1,


DVD & CD burning hadn't been the first thing on my list I admit. I had a couple of 3-year old blank cd's way back then, and when I tried to burn on them just to check if it worked, I blamed it on the old disks and didn't worry that the problem could have been elsewhere.

Here's a link for the complete specs of my drive showing what it should do: http://uk.lge.com/products/model/det...gsah44n.jhtml#


Well, now I've discovered that the problem hadn't been the disks. No matter what brand I buy, what speed they support or whether they are cd-r, types of dvd-r or re-writers, the burn function doesn't work. In fact when I insert a blank disk, my computer reads it as being full:


(you can see here that I've got only 3 tabs showing, the 'recording' tab isn't there).

and if I try to double click on it it says "not accessible":



I've never had any problem with reading though. I can play all types of movies, music cd's, game cd's and game dvd's including TS2, Oblivion + all EP's and Crysis...

Now I'm sure that it isn't a problem with the DVD drive physically. I swapped the DVD drive with an identical one from another computer, and guess what? My drive burns perfectly in the other pc, and the other drive gives me the same errors in my pc!

Here is the stuff I've done so far, which hasn't solved the problem:

1) Updated the drivers for the DVD Rom and the IDE drivers;

2) Swapped DVD drive with that from another pc;

3) Updated the firmware;

4) Checked the bios controlling that it is in IDE mode;

5) Tried a different IDE slot;

6) Tried a new IDE cable;

7) Removed SecuRom and Starforce from the registry and from the device manager;

8) Underclocked cpu, ram and gfx to stock clocks;

9) Re-installed Windows XP through Windows Repair;

10) Modified the registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives\Volume{bc1eb9fa-d7ec-11dc-9722-806d6172696f} to read 2 instead of 3 which now gave me the recording tab, and brought me a step forward in that now I can access the disk (it's no longer not accessible) but I still cannot burn on any disk:



11) I ran Microsoft Windows Autofix (Autoplay repair wizard) which said the following:

AutoFix [V5.2.3790.67]
Time [2008-02-12 21:17:30]

Step: No steps to take.
Result: This AutoPlay setting cannot be fixed. Either the device is malfunctioning, or the wizard cannot determine the problem.

>> Required action: The wizard found problems but cannot fix them -> None
As you can see it saw a problem but it cannot fix it.

12) Deleted upper and lower filters from here HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}


I don't know what else I can add, the computer is virus and spy-ware free, my XP is a legal copy, and I don't have much stuff installed which might be causing a conflict or mucked something up. After all as I pointed out earlier, this problem had been there from the start when I assembled the pieces and installed XP fresh straight from the box...


I've gone dizzy myself trying to remedy the problem for the past month or so.
Any ideas?
Thanks a lot.

Maybe you got a bad one. If it's still under warranty I would send it back.

It's definitely not the case.

I've got another pc and it's got an identical drive GSA-H44N which works perfectly.

I've just swapped them, and 'my' drive works in the other pc, whereas the normally working drive gives the same result in my rig.

Which suggests that it's a software problem?

I've tried firmware off the LG site. :ohwell:

Here's what happens when I put an empty CD inside:




And if I try to double-click:

Maybe it's a problem with the interface on the rig that doesn't work.
Something wonked in the SCSI firmware?

Just guessing.

How do I check that?

The cables and everything look OK. Currently I'm using the LG GSA-H44N from the other pc, and it's giving the same results.

Since even another identical drive is giving the same problem I'm guessing that the problem isn't with the drive persay.

Otherwise the drive plays my dvd and cd games, and dvd movies just fine... :confused:

Do you have the latest BIOS for your Mobo? Maybe try updating that.
(If the SCSI is built into the Mobo)

Here is what Nero Infotool says.
Sorry for the enormous post, but I've never used nero infotool and can't decipher much of it...

Do you see anything worth noticing which could be the problem?

Thanks :respect:

OK... sorry about this but I don't even know what is Starforce and how it got there... let alone how to remove it... :eek:

Wait a sec - I found the above in System32/Drivers.

Should I just delete them and that's it?

Starforce is a copy protection method used by some games. It is horribly invasive.

If you remove it the games will no longer work, but having it is not worth the hassle.

Google "How to remove starforce" for instructions.

Even if it does not fix the problem, you want to get rid of that crapware.

Star force is a cd protection thing, It for anti piracy of sum sort and yeah it's a pain in the ass to remove.

You can remove them via "Device manager" then click "View" and then "Show hidden devices"

next go down to " Non Plug and play drivers " search for starforce and uninstall it and reboot :D gud luck mate

Yeah the sata controller could be the reason - maybe the sata driver - i once had to install ide-mode drivers to a nforce4 chipset sata controller to make a sata dvd-rw work.

It might not be that StarForce is the problem, but when many gaming companies release patches so their games run without it, you know it's crap.

The public outcry about StarForce was so intense that it could not be ignored.

StarForce told people that if anyone could prove that their software was a problem, they would give them $10,000.00

The problem was you had to bring your system to Russia to prove it.

Not the best response. Duh.

It wasn't starforce. I managed to remove it... and at least my games are still working.

I'll try the IDE slot suggestion later (too darkish in my room now and flashlight batteries quit) however I doubt it could be that since the dvd rom works well. It's just either when I insert a blank cd-r or a cd-rw that it mucks up. I haven't checked with blank dvd's yet...

I had an issue like that but it wasn't software related, the drives lens died, well for the CD lens, but the DVD lens of the drive still works, soooo no CD reading for my drive, it only takes DVD disks. Lol only solution was to get it replaced, but read your posts above, that you tested that drive on another pc and it worked. Maybe you should try to see if theres anything on the BIOS that has something to do with that or start fresh? Maybe you got a malfunctioning drive there...
