    Hey all I could use some help my DVD RW gets the following error in device status:

    "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)"

    I can't write ISO file, burns cd's etc. My pc see's it and i've reinstalled drivers but my programs cannot see it or register it.

    Any ideas for a course of action?

    Click on Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click Command Prompt -> Run as administrator.

    Paste the following line and hit enter afterwards

    bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

    Then restart and see if that works.

    gave it a shot but still no dice, thanks for the attempt though. Still same error in device status and none of my software seems to find my burner.

    Next idea; Remove it from the system.
    Go to device manager, and right click > uninstall.
    Let it uninstall, and then reboot and see what happens.

    as I recall, there have been a score of problems with the optiarc, or Sony-NEC compilation known as Optiarc. Mostly in XP, but quite a few in Vista also.

    I had purchased a bulk load of Optiarc dvd/rw dl drives for custom builds a couple of years ago, I did not have any problems with them, but I had read about a bunch of problems others were having.

    If you feel lucky, you could try tweaking the registry as this Microsoft XP tip explained in a fix
    You can no longer access the CD drive or the DVD drive, or you receive an error message after you remove a CD recording program or a DVD recording program in Windows XP: "error code 31"

    Or you could read up on some other known issues for the drive at
    Optiarc AD-7203S

    Probably most importantly though is click that send feedback link on your Windows 7 desktop and share the issue with Microsoft. As it is hardware related it would give them an opportunity to look into it also.
