EEK!

Greetings! (and many thanks to you in advance),

My burner is not working. I thought it might be a problem with software, so I tried not using Windows and downloaded DeepBurner Pro with no results. Neither application sees the burner.

So I followed the instruction to uninstall it with the device driver (@: http://www.techsupportforum.com/f19/...er-193876.html ).

Windows did not reinstall it.
Will you help me?
TY.

(Windows XP Home Edition, Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.09026_1234 Service Pack 3 - AMD Sempron Processor 3100+, 383MB Ram, NVIDIA GeForce 6100 - emachines D3123 - TSSTcorp CDW/DVD TS-H492C pre-installed.)

I am trying to burn images and text to a DVD+R. I also have DVD-R medium and have tried both. To the software, they are invisible in the DVD drive.

Thank you, ATKrider. I appreciate your careful steps and am keeping your remarks handy as well.

ATKrider,
Does the solution offered by Tyree accomplish the same thing?

Your TSST TS-H492C CD-RW/DVD-ROM will Read & Write CD's and Read DVD's.
It will NOT write to DVD.

Hello ,

no it does not ,

i miss read the post

what my fix does is if your system does see the drives but is unable to use them

my fix removes filters that get place in the registry that hampers the functions of the drive and blocks the writing and coping and play functions of the cd roms

this will fix all cd roms and return the ability to play /read/write from and to cd's

but these bits of advice might have to be applied to a situation like this

but Tyree is right about the abilities of the drive in his last post concerning it being able to write to dvd's

what need to be done since he has gotten his software to see the drives is select the propper drive to accomplish what he is trying to do when he is telling the software what to do

by default the system will choose the master drive to perform all functions so when having 2 drives you need to know which drive is set to master and which is slave and which does what so when telling the software what to do it will know what drive to use

some software will automatically select the correct drive for it scans your system so it will know what to do

but then again it might have filters and preventing this from happening so when i run ito this situation i check for filters and do the fix by Tyree so that i make sure all is good



hope this helps

I thought that since I'd burned CD's before, the DVD medium would also work. Thank you, Tyree, for your guidance to get this functionality back and letting me know that I am trying to get software to do what I need hardware for!

I looked into the registry too, ATKrider; those values were not there and, under the circumstances, I guess they were not supposed to be! I am very grateful for your help, too.

I am a satisfied customer. My appreciation to you both. You were awesome.
