    My HL-DT-ST DVD GSA-H55N ATA will not burn an ISO file. I have binned 7 discs so far. I am running Windows 8.1. The ISO file is a Spain Map for a BMW SatNav system. I would be grateful for any help

    Your thread shows "solved" you will most likely not get any help if it shows solved. Did you intend to mark this as solved?

    Next, that is a pretty old burner and may have just quit working.

    What exact software are you using to burn the iso? You do understand that you cannot copy the iso file correct? It must be burned using a burning program ie nero, cdburnerxp, imgburn, etc, etc.

    As crjdriver already said, that GSA-H55N is a pretty old disc drive.
    Its support site has firmware only for Windows XP and Windows Vista.
    Have you had previous success burning discs in it with Windows 8.1?

    I have solved the issue, I used a stand alone ISO burning prog. I did not realize that the disc drive was that old. Hi flavallee, I have burnt a lot of DVD & CD discs on it and it works fine. Nevertheless I thank you both for taking the trouble to respond. As it happens my wife has just returned from UK and the dealer has sent me a replacement disc anyway. Regards
