sometime in the last month, I go a update the made my DVD writer stop working, it shuts down after about 80 % of a burn.
I went to the Microsoft FixIt and it loaded a bunch of stuff on my machine and then said the DVD rom would not write and it was broke, I needed to get a new one.
I have a brand new one and it says the same thing. it's unable of writing and I should get a new one.
I found a post by microsoft that told me to delete filters in the registry and I did. now it says the DVD Roms are CD roms and it wont let me try and burn.
I know the DVD roms were working because I burnt a DVD in between these updates after several tries. at first I thought I had bad discs but I know now that is not the problem.
Should I f disk and start over. or can I delete all the service packs and updates? or can I try a system restore that never seems to work.
let me know what you need to know to help me.
