dvd writer inacessible - incorrect function

  hermione_uk2002 12:30 29 Apr 2006

For some reason my dvd writer has lost its ability to burn cds or dvds. My writing software no longer recognises the drive as having a writing function and when i load in a blank cd or dvd the above message appears about incorrect function. It worked fine until a few months ago. It still reads cds and dvds fine - any tips. I do still have a service contract. I have tried system restore.

Have you considered uninstalling the device from Device Manager, and allowing Windows to reinstall it on a reboot?

re-installing didn;t work - i think i will just send it away to acer to get a new one.
