Hi Guys, I think I've chosen the proper spot for this...I have a lappie that won't burn my media all of a sudden. Before I turn ya loose, it's not physical as the drive was recently replaced, it is showing up in device manager and under E drive in "Computer", I've already tried deleting the uppperfilters and lowerfilters, restored my system to a day it was working properly, cleaned out the viruses/spyware (yes, I had plenty), it does play commercial discs and plays burned discs but it freezes up after a couple of minutes, so we'll say it plays intermittantly. No I'm not using Verbs as I ran out and grabbed some Mems, but I've had good burns with them before. I have Itunes on the lappie (It's an HP G series) and have had trouble with filters in the past, along with when I added Roxio, but I removed Roxio, though not Itunes yet. I suspect this is related to a damaged CDrominf file or registry error, but that's where I stand now. Can anyone offer me suggestions outside the box of the usual suspects please? I guess I could remove Itunes but I'm tired of spending 30 min reloading it due to filter issues Itunes creates and I don't think I added any new burning proggies. Oh, I should say I use Imgburn and the burns are showing it going through the burn process and when it ends, it ends abruptly and spits out the blank disc after completion, but it seems to kick it out when it normally would take a minute or two to finalize, as though it's bailing out at the finalize.. Thanks my friends Was I supposed to put my thank you under "edit" or "reply" Attar?
