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.

    dvd-rom only means that it will read a dvd, check if your's say dvd RW (read and write), , ..some manuals apply to different models... possibly one that will actually burn dvd's.



    I had a similar problem. my cd/dvd rom drive would appear accesible then it would not... it turned out to be my cd/dvd rom drive was dying... and in fact it did. I don't know how old is yours but if you said you were using it to burn cd's it may have reach its time.



    check also your connection between the cd/dvd rom drive and the mother board.. you may have a problem with the ide cable/serial cable that connects these two items or the power connector that goes from the power supply to the cd/dvd rom unit.

    I've posted this on the other question you have going around.. I'm assuming is the same issue.

    hope this helps!

Hey I have a alpine cde-7826 receiver its not reading burt cd. But will play other cds thatytou buy in store.


Please check carefully the format the CD you burn. Your player should has at least same format or better to make it read the CDs.
For example standard dvd player will not able to read mpeg 4 CDs.

My HP DVD 740 won't recognize blank CDs


Sounds like the lens is dirty. Run a cd cleaner through the drive. That should take care of it.

My Compaq Presario desktop will not burn CDs


Hi,
Perform a system restore and take the computer back to a time before the problems started with burning, or you can download a different media player and try burning with that, real player as a good bit of software to use for burning and Nero is too (Nero is a devoted burning suite)

Get real player here >>>>>>

Get Nero 9 here >>>>>>

Burning movies


Yes. Many burning apps (such as Nero) support the creation of Video-CDs, and most current DVD players support playing these Video-CDs.

Media player says that it cant find the burner


I guess you have a Read-Only drive - ROM. You need a CD/DVD RW drive for burning.

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.
