Hi I'm having trouble burning dvds and cd's on my Phillips DVD+-RW (DVD8701). when i insert a blank Memorex DVD+RW 4.7 GB 8X into my drive it says that the disk has 0 bytes total and 0 bytes free.when i insert a comp usa blank cd it says 702 mb total 702 mb available.which leads me to believe that the unabilitty to burn dvd's is due to a windows error and not a hardware(lens,firmware,etc.).I have found that this drive uses ASPI becuase when i deleted Intel 82801G the drive was uninstalled with it.I have also reset my ASPI DLLs which i found out were no installed, but this did not solve the problem.

ASPI.SYS,Version 4.71.2
WOWPOST.EXE,Version 4.6(1021)
WINAPSI.DLL,Version 4.6(1021)
WinAPSI.DLL,Version 4.71.2


Another wierd thing i noticed is that all my cd/dvd related drives were marked as cd drives(under their ofiicial name(i.e On top DVD Drive(E:\)under that Cd Drive))

Also Itunes gave me a message about the dvd/cd burning registries it uses were are missing, it siad this can be due to installing another cd/dvd burning program
Here is some Info about my computer

All cd and dvd applications previuosly or currently installed

same problem

ok, I bought this lg GSA-4167B dvd writer, I burn't about 10 dvd's, then my dvd-RW disapeared from mycomputer. It became DVD-RAM drive. I have another lg CD-RW that works fine, but my dvd one isn't recognizable anymore. It just started to do it like that, for no reason. I need to fix it by friday because im selling it on friday. Please someone help, all drivers are updated. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing works.

I have an Lg DVD burner aswell (model 4163B)
showing up as DVD-RAM drive is actually correct. the LG drives are the only ones I know of that burn DVD-RAM media (as well as + and -)

do your burning programs still recognise it?

nope... I cant burn any dvd's at all, it doesn't even recognized blank media dvd's... I really need to get this thing to work, but I used to have a drive under "mycompter" saying DVD/RW, and that drive is gone ever since I burn't maybe 10 dvd's...

Also, remember DVDburners and CD-RW combo uses different lenses for each task. So maybe you've the DVD lense damaged and that's why you got that problem. Also check your firmware on the manufacturer website.
