  1. I would wonder if your RAM of 256MB is adequate for what you want to do. :idea:
  2. i guess its not but still it does read some DVD's its not that it doesn't read at all do i need to increase my RAM and then i will be able to read the DVD i write ?
  3. Quantity of Ram has nothing to do with reading discs :tongue: Maybe it's a defective DVD burner, that's all. Try writing some discs with another DVD RW on the same PC if you have the possibility and see if it can read those discs, if yes than it's for sure a defective DVD burner.
  4. thanks for the help it was indeed faulty hardware i got it repaired and it works fine thanks for all the help
