can not burn with phillips sdvd8431

Postby candyangel » Thu Aug 23, 2007 2:43 pm

I have an amilo L7300 with a phillips sdvd8431 dvd writer, recently i have had problems burning any dvds or cds with it, it goes throught the motions of burning and tells me it is successful but the disc remains blank when checked on dvd player or laptop, however it is still capable of reading discs fine, i have tried updating the firmware but it has no effect, does anyone know where i can find an updated driver for this drive, or anyone have any idea what else i can do, any advice would be appreciated :D

Did you change the brand of your blank CDs?

hi Aaron

I have used different dvds/cds, as i was living in the UK but am now living in Israel so there are different brands available here, however i know there is nothing wrong with the media or with the software i have used for burning as i have managed to use both successfully on my sister in law's computer to burn discs.

You did try several and all did not work?
If not: Maybe the CDs are just incompatible with your drive.

Try restarting computer after burning. It helped me maybe one time... I've got this Philips too. For example, when I burn videoDVD, it can be read on external DVD reader (home theatre), but the burner, which burned this DVD doesn't read it... If it's strange? No. It's Philips SDVD8431 :)
But, as I wrote before, restarting may help.
