Question about Dell (5X840) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner

1 Answer

Lost digital pics

Using a Memorex CD-R compact disc on a different laptop (Tosh) I stored some digital camera pics. At a later date I burnt some additional digital camera pics to the same disc. Trying to view pics later only the first selection stored were visible, as if the other pics did not exist on the disc. A long time later, on a new laptop (HP) the disc was inserted and all of the pics were now visible in their individual folders. (unfortunately I was not sharp enough to transfer the "lost" pics to another drive) because when I attempted to read the discs contents again the original problem occured and the original stored pics have once again disappeared...! HELP

The DVD Burner will not burn a Memorex DVD - R . Should I purchase Verbatum or Memorex for an older model MSI DVD Burner? Or, Should I purchase Verbatum or Memorex for an older model Samsung TS H652...


You are on the right track. Every "multi-format" DVD recorder, DVD burner and DVD-RW drive I have ever owned has had problems with one type of media or another. This is because the discs all have their own patented dye mixtures, and each is a little bit different.

I have problems using Memorex DVD-R discs on my Toshiba DVD recorder. The only drive I can get good results with Memorex DVD-R's is on my Memorex DVD drive.

For DVD-R media, I have had the best success with TDK DVD-R's.So far, they have worked on all my devices.

You may want to try DVD+R media. I use Memorex Lightscribe DVD+R and for dual layer recording, I use Ativa DVD+R DL discs, both of which have worked very well and I rarely have to throw one away.

It takes allot longer, but on my PC I always use the "verify" function to make sure I get a good copy.

I have this cd-r by memorex that already has downloaded songs but i want to erase them and put new ones ...please explain how to do this...


You cant.

A CD-R (Compact Disc-Recordable) is a variation of the Compact Disc invented by Philips and Sony. CD-R is a Write Once Read Many (WORM) optical medium, though the whole disk does not have to be entirely written in the same session.
CD-R retains a high level of compatibility with standard CD readers, unlike CD-RW - which can be re-written, but is not capable of playing on many readers, and also uses more expensive media..

If you want to be able to use the disc many times, you need to buy CD-RW discs

I have an Hp laptop with a pioneer dvdrw dvr k17b not burning.


dies your burned this work on your PC? if it works on your pc you just have to select the correct settings for your burning software, when you burn does it ask you to burn multiple sessions? if it does and you selected the option create multiple session then what will happen is the disc's you burnt will only work on your windows and not on any other computer or devices that use dvd's or cd's, on the options it will also have a choice for you to choose single session only wherein this will allow you to use the burnt disc in any other computer and will most likely work 100% of the time ^_^ NOTE: this step I gave all depends on the software you use to burn your disc and you may be required to play around your software for some softwares do not have the same info in them but at time be the same in thier function and purpose ^_^ I just based this answer to your question using my NERO

You probably didn't load all the drivers for it from the start up disc, see if you can repair by reloading the disc or delete all and start over

The DVD/CD drive will play some CDs and not others When it does not play, the computer hangs and can only be restarted by switching off/on at the mains.


If your DVD/CD drive was not doing this before, know that it is getting spoiled, especially on it's lens. Or the CDs and DVDs which don't play might be burnt on a higher speed which is not supported by drive. Try to use CDs and DVDs burnt at the speed recommended by the drive's manual, usually a maximum of x24 for CDs and x16 for DVDs.

Won"t see blank disc


given my experience with memorex blanks, i think that you should just switch to another brand....memorex made great tape....the cd blanks are another story. I recommend, if you can find them, FUJI blanks that are made in Japan; they have a reputation as some of the best.
