comment Optical data discs recognized writeable/empty all the time
Done all (and more). Still my drive (resp. Windows Explorer) fails miserably when I ask it to show the contents of (for example) a stupid f*** driver disc :( Yes, I could try a system restore point. But: the second oldest is about 2-3 days before i NOTICED the problem first and the oldest ist 6 month old (directly after the last fresh install of 8.1). No, I really consider if I NEED a CD READER ...

Problem can not be related to a single drive, because I also tested an external USB Samsung Writer.

If it would be an update problem, it should happen on any Win 8.1 PC, shouldn't it? CD burning (with CDBurnerXP) WORKS! It's reading which doesn't work.

1-yes, 2-no, 3-yes, 4-yes, 5-If not, it would probably difficult to use "sc" to start it ;) cdfs.sys is in the write place (also in the "backup" place WinSxs) is according to sfc not corrupted and binary is identical to the version that works on another machine.

Driver is from MS for both. Version 6.3.9600.16384 from 2006. Latest available. Driver uninstall already tried. Doesnt help. All Windows updates until NOW are installed. Even all optional (and 3rd Party drivers) except for "Bing Desktop".

Windows version: see question. Firmware: nothing new. External (USB) Sasmung DVD Writer (SE-208) has the exact same problem on this machine anyway, but works ok on two others.

External USB-Drive tested too. Works fine and reads all discs on two PC and shows the same problem as the built-in drive on the third.

I've never used windows burning (CDBurnerXP is always one of the first programs I install. And "mastered" CDs usually don't contain sessions. Even the self made discs HAVE worked before of course (because I even finalize if the disc only contains 4MB)
