    solutions


    • Dirty or dusty lens - Use a cd lens cleaner or clean the lens if you know better.

    • Windows driver issue, try uninstalling your drives from device manager, restart, the drives get reinstalled see if theres a change.

    • As already noted make sure recording is enabled.

    • If possible remove one cd drive and try it on another computer, test if you can burn there.

    If you got the same problem with both drives even on another computer, then you most likely got a faulty or dirty lens. Best to buy a brand new DVD burner, doesn't cost more than 30

CD/DVD drive on e-Machine T3120 reads disc, but won't write disc!


You can try going to Emachines website and update the drivers for that drive. If that doesnt work, it is possible the drive itself is going bad.

Dvd Driver


Hi elyse09,
If your PC system is not a notebook than the DVD writer will fit in to your system. This DVD writer burns a variety of DVD's at different speeds depending on the DVD disks speed & CD-RW's as well. Windows does not need driver for DVD/CD writers. This DVD writer is also a DVD player. It comes with software that allows you to use the internal laser to write labeling onto the disk. It will take time to learn how this is done but for the money its at the top of its class.

Files wrote to a DVD are not found when DVD loaded to another PC


could be that the firmware/drivers on your husbands dvd player needs to be updated. different brands and releases of readers/writers will not all write and read in the same format. look at his manual for his computer , note the cd/dvd formats the drive is capable of. Now do the same for your computer, noting the formats available.
Now that you have them both in front of you , you should be able to see a common format. Thats the one you want to select when burning a cd/dvd so that his computer will be able to read the disk.
Reagrds.

Hp cd-writer Not Working


Depending on what HP computer/cd-writer it is the type of disc you are using may not be supported.
Older cd-writers often had a specific type they could write to, CD -r / CD +r.

You should try to find out what kind of discs are supported by your cd-writer. This CAN be located in text on the front of the cd-writer.

Cannot backup files to a cd/dvd


we may need more details but you can try this for now

1. are you sure you have a cd writer or a dvd writer (writer = burner)--- check the front edge of your cd/dvd unit and look for words like "writer" "burner" or writeable next to the word dvd or compact disc... keep in mind not all cd/dvd writer can write (burn) cd or dvds, some may burn cd but not dvds.

2. is your cd/dvd unit compatible with the media (cd or dvd blank disk) you are trying to use.. depending your cd/dvd especifications your dvd/cd drive is compatible with certain types of cd or dvds that are writeable.

3. is the cd/dvd a writeable cd/dvd and is compatible with your cd/dvd drive? for instance.. if you are using a blank dvd and your cd/dvd drive only burn cd/s and read dvd and cd you won't be able to write to the blank dvd.

4. are you trying to burn a dvd in a corporate computer.?? as a user (not an administrator) of your corporate computer you may not have priviledges that will allow them to burn dvd/cd's even you your drive and your media are compatible.

please post
the error that you get
the brand and model of the computer you're using
the type of media you're using

Cd burning drive


ARE YOU SURE THATS A CD WRITER NOT JUST A CD ROM. IF ITS A CD WRITER AND YOU ARE USING THE OS AS WINDOWS XP....JUST TRY SENDING THE FILE DIRECTLY TO THE BLANK CD IN THE DRIVE...IF IT BURNS THE CD WRITER IS OK AND THE APPLICATION (NERO OR WATEVER) YOU ARE USING TO BURN THE CD REQUIRES TO BE REINSTALLED
