    Are you speaking of an internal IDE DVD burner, or could it be an external USB DVD burner or is it something else? Make sure it's connections are all seated properly and the device is turned on and has power to it, otherwise it wont be seen by your system.

Hi jacquie...
Check these steps..
1. Open the CPU cabin and make sure that the power cable and the data cable to the DVD burner is fixed correctly.
2. Goto "My computer".Right click and click "properties".Goto "Device manager".Make sure your DVD burner is mentioned under "CD/DVD ROM drives".Right click that to find whether your drive is in enabled or disabled state.
3. If your burner is not mentioned under it.Scan for hardware changes.

Hope this info will help u.Bye,Take care.

My atapi dvd w dh16w 1p lg12 it wont let me burn


Why not? Does it have a DvD Burner installed? Have you burned in the past on it? What error message if any are you getting?

Look on the side of the dvd drive's door where you place the dvd and see if you see DvDrw or DvD-RW or DvD-Rewritable. If it says DvD-ROM then it is not a dvd burner. You can also click Start/My Computer and look at the DvD Drive to see if you see DvDrw or DvD-Rw (make sure nothing is in the dvd drive to check it).

How can I burn pictures onto a DVD, so ot can be


If you have a DVD burner you can use the burning software that came with the unit. Maybe "Sonic" or "Nero".
Start the burning software and drag add drop your pictures into the "burn window".

Check your DVD front door to see if it says DVD Writer or DVD ROM.
If it says ROM, then it is not a burner.

Best DVD or CD discs is Verbatim brand (OfficeMAX, best price).

P;ease help me. i use real player to burn cds. ive never burt a dvd. but i want to use it now and my player keeps telling me my cd and dvd burners are not detected. why are they not working please help me.


burning and cd requires a cd burner... the fact that you burn cds does not necessarily mean that you can also burn dvd's.. to burn a dvd you need to have a dvd burner unit installed. check on tray that comes out on you cd/burner if it says RW DVD.. if not chances are you only have a cd burner but is not a dvd burner.

Wont burn cds , files , etc


well it could be many reasons why it wont write your burner but first what software you are using for burning. it happens to me before using media player when i try to burn music. the reason was i haven't configure my media player to use my dvd burner for burning because i have dvd burner and a cd burner installed. Now maybe you try to reinstall it using your dvd driver the one which with your dvd burner when you first bought it.
