CD/DVD Drive won't burn file to disk.

I have a HP Pavilion dv2799ea and i am running Windows 7 Bit on it.

My CD/DVD ROM Drive is a slimtype DVD A DS8A1H ATA Device.

 

When i try to burn files to a disk it it throws up the following error message:

 

"The disc wasn't burned successfully. Make sure that you have the laciest firmware for you CD or DVD burner installed, and then try again"

 

My driver are up to date on my DVD drive.

 

What i have tried so far to fix this problem is:

I uninstalled the slimtype DVD A DS8A1H ATA Device via device manager

and also uninstalled the

ATA Channel 0, ATA Channel 0, ATA Channel 1ATA Channel 1, ATA Channel 2

under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers in the device manager,

restarted my PC and it started installing them again, but with no luck as the disc will till not burn!

 

Also i went into Regedit under 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > Class > {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

and deleted the UpperFilters - REG_MUTI_SZ

 

These were both fixes for other people online who seemed to have the same problem as me, however they have not worked for me!

 

I have since restored the registry the its former state.

 

I realism the error message says it may need a newer version of firmware, but i have searched online and don't seem to be able to find one (not that there isnt one).

 

If anyone could could please help me with this it would be greatly appreciated, as i feel i have tried everything that i am capable of!

 

For further note: I bought the PC second hand off a mate in April 11, but have not tried to burn a disc since i have had it!

He previously had windows vista on it!

 

Thank you in advance for any help or information on this matter

Its burning the disc, it is just failing to complete the operation, try a different burning software.

Re: CD/DVD Drive won't burn file to disk.

Thanks for the quick reply.

 

I have downloaded the software and tried to burn the files to disc with it, but it gives the following error:

 

"An error occured while burning the disc. Most likely the disc is not usable. Usually, these errors happen if the inserted media is not compatible to the drive or of poor quality.

 

(devWriteProtected)  Could not write to Disc (LBA: 0 Length:32).

Write Protected. - 0x052700"

 

The discs i am using are cheap ones that i bought at the supermarket, 100 for £8 or something!

 

Do you think this could be the problem?
