Hi, I had issues with Windows Home Premium and my DVD/CD write made by Samsung Tsst corp SH-162A. I searched within microsoft vista discussion groups for answer, under DVD problems and more. I tried some stuff that I found, such as deleting lower and upper case filters within my registry. (in my regeistry this wasn't there, or at least I couldn't find any lower and upper case filters). I tried updating my firmware, thru the manufacuter of my dvd/cd burner, samsung website. That still didn't work.
All I could do was burn files (pictures) to my dvd's but later I couldn't retrieve them to my computer (if I should format it). It would freeze up, or not respond.
I think I found the answer today, and it's about clicking on Windows Help and Support and in search type Disc Burning one question is this helps me understand and it's the two ways vista offers you to format a disk, (Live File System is the answer). Why the other is even mention within vista is useless as it's for Windows before Xp. I know some use older windows versions, and it shouldn't be offered within vista that's for sure. (They can take that option away if you ask me).
The 2nd is this If I have more than one writeable drive, how to I set up one as the default for burning discs. As I also have a CD write by itself. The CD Writer was set up as the default player, not the DVD/CD Writer which it should of been.
So when I fixed this, it made these 3 All ready burned DVD's with pictures on it, work. And fast! No more lagging about and finally respond. I am thankful I found it, finally.
So try this if it's your problem
1. Click to open computer
2. Right-click the drive that is your disc burner, and then click Properties.
3.Click the Recording tab, and then click your desired drive from the drive menu. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Another bit of advice regarding burning DVD's Do I need to close or finalize my disc when I'm done burning?
Not necessarily. Closing a disc session makes the disc compatible with other computers, but not all discs need to be closed. You only need to close CD-R, DVD-R, and DVD+R discs. Rewriteable discs (which end in RW) don't need to be closed. In addition, discs that have not been closed can still be used in other disc burners. They can't be used in CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives, however.
Hope that helps!
