Hi,

I have two separate drives on compaq pc/winxp sp2 i.e., cd and dvd drive.(cd drive is Asus whild dvd drive is Sony)
The sony dvd drive has suddenly stopped writing on dvd-r but writes on dvd-rw and erases dvd-rw discs. I am unable to update the firmware because its not available over net . Should i replace my dvd drive with the latest.

Please suggest me...

Laser and electronic must be ok.

Try uninstalling and reinstalling your DVD writing software.

I did uninstall and installed the software(nero) but the problem persists. even with sonyrecordnowdx and win xp its the same problem. In nero with dvd-r i get the message as illegal disc whereas i have recorded many dvd's previously with the same sony discs. I tried to back up some avi video files is it because of that, i'm doubtful...
