Or is this just a piece of junk that needs to be replaced? Anonymous Oct 29, I got a similar problem it can read purchased cd’s but not blank cd’s and it can read burned dvd’s and not purchased dvd’s i have upgraded it to 1.

Also check the Compatibility Center for major devices http: If this dvd burner comes with a cd driver, have it installed, or try connecting to the IDE cable, posibly make it a slave on your hardisk. It now only reads cd’s and will not read dvd’s nor will it burn anything but cd’s. I’ve updated the driver, removed the uppper and lower key things as recommended by Microsoft but nothing makes it work. Well, but i mention it in the my computer. I have tried going into the hardware device manager and re-installing the device.
