Hi guys! I currently bought a new surplus system for my sister. It is a Pentium 4 3.2, 80gb.

1.25Gb, fx5500 and used my previous DVD Writer (Samsung writemaster) from my other rig that is an AMD Phenom II x2 550 BE, 4gb, 780G, 4670..

And the problem is. It cant read my DVD's burnt from my AMD rig.

What could be the cause? Is it my Processor?

Or my Motherboard?

Don’t worry there is no problem with your motherboard or processor.

There are several possible causes of error in this case. Each described below.
1. Insert a lens cleaning disk and clean the Lens.
2. Insert any bootable Cd to the drive and restart the computer using boot from CD. Now check that it boots from CD or not. If it does then there is no problem with your DVD/RW. If it don’t then may be the lens is weak or it needs cleaning.
3. May be there is some problem with your DVD/RW.
4. May be your DVD/RW driver is not working well. Just uninstall this driver and then reinstall it.

Hello Jaiza,

To resolve the issue that you are getting, you will need to do the following:

  • Right-click on Computer, and then click Manage.
  • After that locate  the Storage tab and then choose Disk Management.
  • You will need to right-click  on the problem drive, and then select Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  • After that change the drive letter, and retry it.

If the error persists, you might want to do the following:

  • If you it in Disk Management, you will need to right click it.
  • And then choose Properties.
  • Check if the disk format is RAW, then format it if that is the case.

Regards,

Carl
