Specs: Windows Vista Home Basic
Hi,

My laptop does not recgonize DVD+/-RW. It
recognizes all other media except rewriteable
DVD.

Following are my specs
OS: Windows Vista Home Basic
Laptop Brand and Make: Sony Vaio N Series
(VGN-N37GH/B)
DVD Drive: Sony DVD RW AW-G540A ATA
Device
DVD Media Brand (which I tried): Sony DVD-
RW

What I've tried:
1)Reached out to Sony support and they
suggested removal of upper filter and lower
filter as per Microsoft KB
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060)
2)Uninstalling Roxio and Nero
3)Reinstalling Nero

Not sure what is wrong where and sony
support as usual is not helpful...
Please heeeellllllppppp......

Downloaded the tool... However, after downloading the Filter
detect and removal tool does not execute.. maybe that is for XP
and my OS is Vista Home... Any other tool that can be of help..

Addl Info: I guess the operating system itself is not recognising
the DVD-RW. In windows explorer when I click on the DVD drive,
it ejects the drive with the message "Insert a Disc, Please insert
a disc into drive F:."

I guess it appears to be an OS issue than a specific software
issue.. however not sure... Hope this info helps...

Hi mavis007

This is the first time I am trying to write on a DVD-RW, hence cannot sya if it was working before...

I am keeping "System Restore" as a last option, since there's quite an amount of data (especially "home videos") for which I would need quite an amount of time to backup...

Any other options...

... good idea to back-up your data incase something goes wrong

... "system" restore should not effect your personal files
