I know im not alone on this, I have looked around with no luck, we have an HP Touchsmart 600, W7 X64, the DVD burner can play cd's, dvd's, but if I try burning them...well that's an impossible, sometime ago I tried and it did work for a bit, still burning cd's was a pain and don't even try cd-rw cause they will get messed up (have to toss 2 in the bin), it was so so for dvd's.

Today we tried burning a dvd....no matter what, it didn't work, so I was hoping anybody here could help us to get a solution for this, once and for all if possible.

Thx

I was using the live file system with Windows explorer, but i have tried the power dvd software that comes with the machine, it simply fails, also i noticed that it takes a long time to read the discs (blank discs).

Ok, after trial an error I kept receiving the following error:

(devNTSPTI_IO_Error) Error flushing write cache.
SCSI Pass-through Interface I/O Error. -0xFF045D

Also for the pc to read the blank media it takes forever, again, no problem with written media.


Any clue?, btw thx for ur help :)

It looks like you're not alone with that error, but I don't see any solution posted: http://forum.cdburne....php?f=3&t=6688

One of these may help:
1. Uninstall the drive through Device Manager.
Restart computer. The drive will be automatically reinstalled.
or...
2. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
Restart computer.
or...
3. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.

Second option, i get "the disc in drive is not detected or not supported", after using a blank dvd, and that if I start the process without a clean disk, it will simply not see the disc.
If I start the process with a disc inside it will just finish with "no issues found".
I even got a "fixed", but if I put a blank disc it will just take 5 mins to recognize the disc as a blank and the burn will fail.

Also I get this weird noises coming from the drive (with blank media) as if the drive couldn't read the disc, it keeps trying to load and then stops just to start again.

Option 3, I only have "Nvidia nForce Serial ATA Controller", should I uninstall this?, I mean since this is probably the main driver for the hole Nvidia controller chip it will probably uninstall the other controllers for audio and video.

...Ah men this is really a pain, we have toyed with the idea of doing a whole restore....

Thanks again for ur help!

I'm afraid, you drive may be simply a goner.
