I 22:45:26 Found 1 DVD-ROM and 1 DVD±RW!


Well.... there's definatley something wrong.


Alright. Now, I've read forum upon forum of help and FAQ's about this error message. The dreaded dreaded error message.


Device Not Ready (Incompatable Medium Installed)


Apparently there's nothing we can do for my poor little non-burning computer, but I beg to differ considering it was burning fine last week. Well, not on ImgBurn, but on DVDFab Premium. When that program started to fail me I decided to turn to ImgBurn but uh... it's failing me too. I'll assume the same problem that caused the problem in DVDFab is the same one in ImgBurn.

Does anyone have anyone have any suggestions for me?

Apparently there's some freeware out there that's supposed to scan for something or something?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :) I've wracked my brain for the past 6 hours and it's not doing me too good.


Thanks in advance, much appreicated.

All those old filter drivers might be getting in the way. Really, you only need Redbook and imapi (and the Device of course).


Backup your registry and try to remove all those except redbook and the drive. Reboot and try again. If still no good, restore your registry.

depending on the medium you use, it could be that its low quality and youve found the "really" low quality ones in the spindle .

basically, your drive is saying it does not recognise your discs, meaning it cant read them ( would probably be the same effect for all programs you tried)


What make and type of blank discs are you using ?


try putting a good burned disc from the past in and choose write mode, then copy and paste the info from the right hand side window into here
