....about "it doesn't burn anymore" e.g. How did you find that out ? It may be the burning program rather than the device. Which burning program ? Any error messages ? How long (say, burning hours) have you been using the drive ?
Try reinstalling or upgrading the driver or firmware (if avaulable).
My Philips dvd/cd rw all in one drive doesnt burn any more.It will show photos that I have on CD`s burned on it before.How do I check whether I have killed its burning capabilities? I am running XP home.It doesnt show up in system information,components problem devices.Looking at its properties ,it informs me the device is working just fine.
