    Update your ASPI Layers.

    Also, do a search in the search message function as this has been covered tonnes of times and you will get your answer there :-D

    ASPI drivers may be the problem in this case but it could also be windows playing up. Try and roll back the driver which will install the last working version. If window does not let you roll back, then uninstall the driver and letwindow inatll the drivers again.

    This should solve the problem what ever it may be!

    I have just tried to put the burner in other PC with Windows XP and Windows 2000, and they dont play my DVD´s ! So I think that is not a windows playing problem.
    I will try now to update my ASPI drivers.

    I have news:
    I update my ASPI layer in my Windows XP and now I have diferents problems:
    Now I can read and burn CD´s on it (generic CD´s) but it still not reading DVD´s. It recognizes blank DVD´s (Fujifilm DVD-R and TDK DVD+R) but I tried to burn a Fujifilm DVD-R (2x) and it shows me the "power calibration area error" and with TDK DVD+R burning in 4x it gaves me the same error, so I change the DVD+R to 2,4x (the other option) and it BURNS !!
    After I tried to burn a DVD+RW, but it not recognizes it (This was the first DVD that I have burned with ND-1300A, after this I´m having this problem), now I ask the following question:
    "How can I read and burn CD´s and not read DVD´s, but burn only TDK´s DVD+R (2,4x) and not TDK´s DVD+R on 4x and Fuji´s DVD-R on 2x ? "
    Ps.: It´s recognizing all this blank DVD !
    Please give me a solution !
    Can be it a internal calibration of the laser ?
