Eve3Faces Posted February 17, 2013 Share Posted February 17, 2013 My 16X DVD+/-RW CD-RW COMBO Drive will not read disks I have burned or new blank disks. I'm thinking this is something new because I haven't burned a disk in over a year, but don't know what caused it. It has no trouble reading game disks. I took a couple of the burned disks to a friend's house and her drive opened them right up. I have tried several web-found suggestions, such as deleting the UpperFilters and LowerFilters keys in the Registry. I've also tried doing diagnostics, which say there is no disk in the drive when using a burned or blank disk, but will diagnose the drive with a game disk in it just fine. If I put a burned or blank cd in the drive, and start Nero, the program stalls, the light blinks for a while and then turns steady and then won't eject the disk when prompted. I then have to turn off the computer and restart. I am stumped. I know it's over 6 years old, so should I cave and get a new drive? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
