    I think there's a newer version of the Dell-supplied firmware available for your DH-6E2S, joey. (You've got a Rev AD13, they're showing a Rev 7D12, A04.)

    But although a firmware update on an optical drive is usually enough to get people past a burning error 2131, with the other codes it can help raise the likelihood of a good result to update related drivers, firmware and whatnot (like BIOS for example). I had a look at your downloads page at Dell for the Vostro 420, and there's an unusually-large number of potentially relevant updates there. (BIOS, chipset drivers, video drivers, hard-drive firmware, raid controller application, raid controller drivers, etc.) So I think the most straightforward thing to do would be to update everything Dell-supplied you're currently behind on.

    Head to the following page at Dell and enter your service tag. That should take you to a page just showing the latest versions of drivers and other downloads available for your Vostro:


    ... stock up on everything applicable to your configuration of Vostro 420 that you're behind on.

    After updating, are you able to burn without the 4300?
