firmware update ... but do this at your own risk. Maybe uninstalling MagicISO if you just recently installed and tried it.

sorry orkdaorc ... didnt see anywhere in the earlier posts about you updating the firmware of the dvd-rw drive. Drivers I did see ... but not firmware ... which happens to be a completely different thing than drivers. But since you're sure they have nothing to do with drivers or firmware ... then sounds to me you paid too much for a dvd-rw that has since gone belly-up on you. There's plenty of choices now for decent dvd-rw's in the $45-$60 range.

Another thought would be to rollback to an older firmware version or driver version.

Do this and it should clear up your problems.

Run regedit and navigate to registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\
Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
Highlight it and in the right pane,
find the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values.
Highlight each one in turn, right click and delete them.
Close regedit and restart the computer.
