Hi, whenever I put a blank DVD-R or RW disk into my drive, Windows will say it's not there. The cursor turns into a little CD, but whenever I try to burn an ISO image or any type of file onto it, it says that it's not in. I looked on microsoft.com, and it said to get a hotfix for udfs.sys. Would this help me?

I am using:

Operating System:
Windows XP Professional SP2

DVD/CD-ROM Drive:
AOPEN COM5232/AAH PRO

No, windows explorer and every other program I use, including ISO Recorder, says that there's no disk in. Which program should I use? I have MagicISO. I can't get nero because I have dial-up, so that would take forever. I checked my drive firmware. It's completely up to date. Also, another detail I left out: whenever I put the disk in, Windows slows down a lot.

I have tried to do it on 2 other computers. It still won't work, so I don't think it's the burner.

I have 2 different DVD brands that bothwon't work: Sony DVD+RW, and Maxell DVD-R.
I will try the isobuster and see if it works.

IsoBuster didn't work. It just said "No media present". I updated my IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller: SiS 5513 IDE UDMA Controller. That didn't work. My AOPEN COM5232/AAH PRO firmware is up to date (R.1.08). I have no idea what to do.........

have you tried to burn other stuff non ISO file , like music or pictures to a regular cd-r disk and not a dvd disk , to see if the burner actually works

Yes, i can burn pictures, music, and ISO images to a CD-R disk.

ok,that leads me to think its not a dvd burner ,a search of the make you have listed in a earlier post says its a Aopen,52x cd-r ,16x dvd combo ,and that means its a cd burner and a dvd player ,not a dvd burner .that why its not working !
check it out .

Thanks caperjack. I installed Cute CD DVD Burner before you posted a reply, and it said that I can only read DVDs.
Will an Apple iBook G4 be able to write to DVDs and if so burn an ISO image to them?
