Lost DVD CDR Write Capability

  crosstrainer 07:26 06 Jul 06

Since converting my hdds to dynamic volumes, I have lost the ability to write to either of my DVDRW drives. I can copy between the hard drives, but if I try to write a dvd or cd using either plextools or windows the error message "an error occured whilst attempting to write files" is displayed, or the system simply hangs. Both hdds are virus free and the system operates perfectly otherwise. I can read dvds and cds from either drive perfectly. Os is windows xp pro sp2 with all updates installed Any ideas?

Right click on your CD drive/properties/recording tab/tick enable cd write on this drive.

Both drives firmware up to date... think it has got to be the drive conversion issue, cant see anything on the ms website though.

Uninstall and reinstall the IDE channels the drives are on.

Do you mean uninstall the chipset drivers or physically uplug the cables re-boot then re-attach?
