Thanks for the reply James.

Can u tell a good such software ?


If optical media can be read anywhere, there is nothing wrong with the burn…


You should have diagnostic software for the Burner that will check both the Read and Write lasers in it as well as the ones for the CD side.

I finally managed to crack this problem somewhat. The itunes when it was started, kept on showing a message about the registry being incorrect for dvd burning. So felt something is still wrong in the registry. I just uninstalled Itunes, reinstalled Roxio and reinstalled Itunes again. This solved the issue a bit. I am now able to read and write DVD data files. However the problem still exist with playing / recognising the dvd in the windows explorer for DVD movies. I have also reinstalled Power DVD. So it should have a DVD decoder.

What could be the reason for this now?

Could it be due to region code ? I have never set anything for this. The properties of the dvd drive shows the same. Nothing is set. Open changes allowed 5. I have never set one till now. Could this be the issue ?? But again, I was able to play these dvd movies earlier.
