i bought a north gate pc about 3 years ago. after burning 180 dvds and many cds (give or take), my dvd burner failed on me all together, it would not read or write anything. so i got it replaced about a year ago (when it failed) and it was working great untill now. when it was first installed, when i went to the device manager folder, it was recognised by windows as "dvd-rw" (or something along those lines) now it is recognised as "dvd-ram". the problem im having is that i cannot burn dvds. i can read all the dvds in my collection, and i can read cds. i can even write cds. but i cannot write dvds. when using nero to burn a dvd, the error message comes up saying "reallocation of dvd files failed". is this just a programming issue, or is a problem with the burner it self? i have an LG dvd burner. i would go to their website, but they do not support it anymore. I am not sure, im not a genious by any means, but i think one of the many viruses i had reprogrammed the firmware of the burner. I have, as of July 1st, 2006, gotten rid of 450 various forms of malware, viruses, trojens, etc. is this possiably that this is what happened? what can i do to fix the drive short of replacing it completly?
thanks in advance to any one who takes tim to read this
