DVD Burner showing a CD-Rom and refusing to burn CD's in DeepBurner

Post by IvannaNuke on 15th May 2014, 11:56 pm

First off, hello all.  Sorry to open up here with a question but I must.

I have a gaming rig with a DVDRW that has decided it's a CD-Rom, and won't burn a disk.

I use Deepburner or have done.. and basically it shows as "not a writable drive"

So far I have disabled UAC on my Windows 7 64bit OS, I have reinstalled the drive, Checked the registry to which the key mentioned in step 5 (cant post link but explains about a registry key that is not present )

Each time the drive shows up as stated above, and I am at a loss to fix it really.  

Any and all advice welcome.

Drew Thank You!

Go to your Device manager and check if there are any yellow warning icons.

Go back to Device manager and try to update the drivers for that device.

Done as said, computer says "The best driver software is already installed" and has listed it as CD-Rom drive.

Tried that one and got fails each time I verified the disk, however on a whim tried PowerISO which seems to work?

Touch strange, but means i can burn disks so what is what matters.

Thanks all.
