Windows 7: Boot Ready CDs/DVDs won't boot even after they are boot ready!

No. The corruption is on the computer or DVD-Reader as I tried the DVDs on other computers and they work.
So, DVD-ROM was seeing all DVDs blank. Then, I made a restore on the main Windows partition and some started to work, some were seen as blank still. I have another system image of like a week ago. In a couple of hours, I will do a complete disk restore and check the results. I was having a couple of problems with my softwares anyway since I made a 'drivers update' after I made this image; so it will be good I hope.
I will check that software, it seems useful. And since it is for Windows 7, it is newer than my software.
I am using Cyberlink PowerGO for burning images and it seems to work fine for years. But it has not been updated also (It is shareware). The tool you suggested seems very helpful.
Thank you so much again as always!

You might check to see if you may have a newer BIOS or DVD drive firmware update available from the manufacturer that may help resolve this.

I checked. No updates.

I made a drivers update and installed several drivers days ago. And I noticed a couple of glitches in the computer. I will go back to the image before the drivers and see what happens.

If I had $60, I wouldn't be needing to go through this. I would get a Zacman E-300 and load my ISOs from there! (Of course, I still need my DVD Drive to read and write DVDs; I am just talking about ISOs that I may need).

I still have the external SATA Drive so I may put a boot manager in there and boot to ISOs from there (by SATA to USB) if this problem doesn't go away. I am hoping that it will though. If necessary, I will burn new DVDs of essential ones and hope that it will work right.

I will inform what happens after the disk restore (Most likely tonight or tomorrow).

Not much change after the restore. At least the couple of glitches were gone. I didn't install those 2 drivers which caused the glitches. If necessary, I will burn new DVDs for ISOs. Right now, handling things with USBs.

Sorry if I missed something. Did you try a different DVD player?

Yes, I tried on another computer and the other Windows were seeing it, but my DVD Driver is seeing some DVDs as blank and my BIOS is reading them as Boot Ready, but not booting. I am not sure what the problem is. I will have to make USB Disks for a while or install a boot manager to an external disk and try to load ISOs from there. The thing is even Windows sees the DVDs right, with all the files in it; my BIOS is still not booting from them even after reading them as Boot Ready. No BIOS option seems to be related. So I have both problems with my DVD Reader/Writer and my BIOS.

Let me put it another way. Remove the old DVD Player (hardware). Install a new or different DVD Player (hardware) of known proper working condition. Use the same harness connectors. Install needed drivers. Now try the same DVD's disc and see if things work as they should.
