Rizone DVD Repair is a simple tool that will fix common CD or DVD drive problems at a click.

If Windows no longer recognises your DVD drive, for instance, or sees that drive but doesn't think it's writeable (it's identified as a DVD-ROM) then the program may be able to help. This issue is usually down to faulty filter drivers, and DVD Repair will delete those references, hopefully fixing the problem (though you may need to reboot first).

Of course if the issue isn't related to your filter drivers, then using DVD Repair may cause problems in itself, as whatever application installed those drivers may no longer work correctly. Use with care, and ideally create a system restore point immediately before running the program, so you can recover the original driver settings if DVD Repair doesn't help.

As a bonus, the program can optionally restore your autorun settings, and try to block autorun.inf files from running at all. This can be a mild inconvenience - you'll have to launch disc setup programs manually from now on - but will also improve your security, as it prevents software from running without your permission. (You don't really want your PC running unknown software on whatever USB key is plugged into it, do you?)

Verdict:

An easy-to-use portable tool that will solve many odd DVD drive issues. Though beware, it can also cause some of its own - back up your settings with System Restore before you run it

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
