Windows 7: DVD drive won't read NEW DVDs it has burned

29 Jan 2015   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Finally got the DVD drive working properly! Though sadly, it doesn't feel like a permanent state.

Eventually, I didn't change(mess) anything with the registry, and began to do just some of the same steps I've done many times already.

1. Removed final traces of MagicISO. There was a single annoying .dll file remaining which had to be first renamed and then deleted.

2. Did a sfc /scannow in cmd.

3. And finally, once again, went to Device Manager > Uninstall DVD device, and Checked for device changes (let Windows install the device drivers).

4... And also did a few back'n'forth reset things in Automatic launcher options.

This time around the reinstall did something, and the DVD drive somehow works... again. The problem ain't entirely solved, but things are ok for now.

Thanks for helping out, fellas! Special thanks to user dsperber, for the ideas that kept the issue going! I think I'll find a cleaner disc to spin a few runs... again.

Fascinating end to the story.

Your steps to get things working again point to a clear software-related cause, rather than anything hardware. The fact that it was specifically related to READ (i.e. WRITE worked perfectly, as confirmed by use of the burned discs on a second machine), and only to DVD (since you also said newly burned CD's were READ back correctly on the burning machine but burned DVD's were not) was very challenging. But the fact that you only performed software-related remedial steps imply it couldn't have really been a hardware problem at its root.

I do not use any outside burning products other than IMGBurn (because of its simplicity, reliability, and ability to do whatever I want to do... including handle ISO). Your experience with MagicISO may have in fact discovered "the culprit", so that getting rid of that final DLL may conceivably have actually been the magic step.

Anyway, congratulations on sticking with it and eventually "emerging victorious" (as I like to say after not giving up until the problem is actually found, when the war is finally over and we have "won").

DVD Drive won't read DVDs
So my problem is this: My DVD drive simply refuses to read DVDs. CDs work fine and for some reason the DVD with W7 is also read by W7 itself. Any other DVD (both single and dual-layer) are unreadable. Windows simply ejects the tray when I try to open a disc and asks to put in a disc. I tried both...
