Hey Dark_Sniper,

What anarchon meant was, we need to know what brand is your CD burner; which Windows; which drivers; etc. This is all necessary info for us to understand your system.

You said that you went into the device manager. Did you delete the drivers for the DVD/CD-ROM drives and then reboot. Windows will then detect new devices and install the drivers or ask for the CD with the drivers.

Also, check the manufacturer's website for updated firmware.

You can try a free CD/DVD burner called "CDBurner XP Pro"; not related to M$. Run a search for it in Google. It might help.

Good luck.

Its a NEC DVD-Burner windows Pro SP2, i delete the driver rebooted, reinstalled it. DIdnt work, tried it again witha updated version of the driver which i have installed right now and i keep getting error that it cant burn. When i boot into Nero to burn something i get a Burning Rom error which is this " Nero - Burning Rom has a known compatibility issue with this version of Windows. For an update that is compatible with this version of Windows, contact Ahead Software." Everything is updated on this computer. then when i try to burn it fails and this is a log it gives me.if you want to see the log ill post it.

Then, try this. Here is a great CD/DVD program:

It is free and I have used it to burn ISO's for Linux, as well as, data CD's.

Its not the software for burning its something to do with the DVD burner it self.
