CD writer not writing???

  Pablothehat 08:02 02 Jun 2004

Anyone know what a Win32 error code 5 access denied when writing a cd means?
I am using Instant CD+DVD, it goes through the simulation, the finalising but resulting disc appears blank or unaccessable. Was ok before dvd writer upgrade????

Do you have any drivers disks for the cd/dvd? It may be a driver issue. Visit the makers website and get any upgrades there. You may simply need to reinstall drivers.

Go to My Computer,right click on the drive,left click Properties,left click Recording and make sure Enable CD recording on this drive is ticked.
HOpe this helps.

I had a similar problem after installing some new software. It changed the proirites and where the dvd and cd recorded before , they stopped. If it was working before try a System restore point.
If it hasnt worked try downloading new ASPI LayerS,Idid this also.

Have you made any physical adjustments to ribbon cables on any of the drives.

Error code 5 indicates a driver problem,try updating the driver.

You may need to try different CD media discs, drivers for CDRW or DVDRW are provided with the Writing Software as in your case,”Instant CD+DVD" That may not support your new drive. It may be too old

Sounds similar to a problem I had, I resolved mine by moving my DVD burner as a slave to my hard drive on IDE 1 (not ideal, I know, but it solved my problem). It seems, some burners dont like certain setups so you need to experiment a little by changing how your drives are connected ie. you could try setting your dvd burner as master on its own on IDE 2 and slaving your other cd/dvd drive to your hard drive on IDE 1.

please clarify which O/s your using & your mention of dvd upgrade (do you mean youve added a new drive or upgraded the firmware/software ??)
