Okay:
Here is my Dvd Burner:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I can't burn anything though....By all accounts it looks installed....In Devices it says its working, Driver is up to date......It Opens and Closes.....

I'm stumped as to why I cant burn anytyhing.....

Here are my Comp Specs:
CPU: AMD Phemon II X4 955 @ 3.2Ghz
Motherboard: Asrock Extreme3 870 w/ Sata3 and USB 3.0
Power Supply: Cooler Master Silent Pro M600 Modular
RAM: Corsair XMS3 6gb DDR3 1333
SSD: OCZ 60gb SSD
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 640gb SATA 6.0gb/s
OS: Windows 7 64bit Ultimate

I basically want to take .ISO files and burn them as Dvd's. IMGburn shows the drive but always says "Media Not Present"....Windows shows it.....but I can't get it to work!

Try updating the mb chipset driver to see if it old or damaged. Check the drive firmware to see if a media issue. Will the drive show a reg cd and DVD as in the drive???

I just updated the Firmware.....Still nothing!!!!
I'm not sure how to select a write speed as there are no options to "Open It" or set options.....

I got this computer from a friend.....No Original Disks......If I uninstall it am I screwed? Will windows try and fix it at startup?

Do you have any virtual drive on the system(e.g. Daemon tools) ? If so then select the physical drive to burn your .ISO's.

I just uninstalled the driver...Rebooted. Windows reinstalled. Says the drive is ready to use....
Put in a blank cd and nothing...blank dvd nothing. Burned Dvd nothing....

So frustrating =) Everywhere I look it shows me it's installed....I can tel the computer to open/close the tray.....
grrr

did it ever occur to you that that used machine may have parts that don't work like they should? maybe a trip to BB or mail order a $20 reader/writer will do the trick?

Im starting to think its a possibility. I assumed because windows shows the drive and I can open and close it, it should work.

I have a USB External Recorder that is good but I prefer to use an internal one.....
I know drives are super cheap, I'm just worried I will screw everything up by installing a new one!

Interesting......
I switched over to a Different Media Type (CD-R Verbatium)and instantly it asked me if I wanted to burn a cd!!!!

Is it possible that my Drive hates the Memorex Media I'm using?

all you have to do is swap a sata cable and a power cable ( see what's attached to the back of it now )...... remove 4 screws and pull the drive. reinstall new drive/put back the 4 screws/hook up power/reboot/let windows find drive......... voila.

don't let it intimidate you. computers are simple.

Memorex CDR media is the worst.Their DVD and Blu-ray media is good.

Well Its 50% fixed.....
Verbatium Cd-R no Problem.....

I tried loading a burned DVD thats verbatium and it didn't read it.....
I'm just stumped honestly......

The Microsoft Fix it tool didn't see any errors other than "There is no media present"
