Could be a bad drive, or bad software. First try new CD burning software, such as Nero [ http://www.nero.com ] or Alcohol 120 [http://www.alcohol-soft.com ].

If the problem persists with multiple programs, you've most likely got a bad drive, and should replace it.

It's *possible* that the media is also the culprit. Some types of media (Sony, Maxell, etc) end up making more coasters or not reading at all. I've had great success with Verbatim over the years - zero coasters and plays universally in any CD/DVD drive I put them in (laptop, home DVD, minivan, etc)

Good luck - hope this helped :)

I have a CY25 with a DVD SBW-241 that will wite CD's but not DVD's


Step 1:

make sure your dvd burner is on.for xp:

1. Click on the "Start" button and then click on the "My Computer" option. Right click on the DVD drive from the list of drives.

2. Click on the "Properties" option and the "DVD Drive Properties" dialog box will appear on your screen.
3. Click on the "Hardware" tab and then click on your DVD drive. Click on the "Properties" option below the "Device Properties" heading.
4. Click on the "Driver" tab and then click the "Enable" option. Click on the "OK" button to save your changes.
5. Insert the DVD you want to burn into your DVD drive and a dialog box will appear on your screen with the option to burn the DVD.


Let me know if you need it for another OS

Step 2:

figure out if it can read DVD. If it can, your burner or disc is having the issue

Step 3:

make sure you're using the right type of dvd. (dvd-r vs. dvd+r).

Step 4:

use a different dvd and if possible from a different source or brand. if it burns then that particular cd is faulty or computer has difficulty burning from that particular source or brand of dvd.

Step 5:

if you're still having issue, it maybe your burning software. Try a different one. I know that windows 7 and beyond have one and there are trials for dvd burners online.

Burn a Data CD or DVD in Windows 7 Using Media Player


You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player. An audio CD can contain just approximately eight minutes of music. On the other hand, if you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player, it will be able to hold numerous hours of music. Video files and pictures can also be added to the data discs.
When you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7, the Windows Media Player does not transform the selected files to a different format prior to saving them to a blank data disc, so the files stay in the compressed condition. This allows you to put much more items on a single disc.As the format of the files is not changed, the quality of the files remains the same.

You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player as follows:
  • Click Start.
  • Click All Programs.
  • Select Windows Media Player.
  • Click the Burn tab in the Player Library.
  • Click Burn options and select Data DVD or CD.
  • Insert a blank disc into the CD or DVD burner of your computer.
  • Close the AutoPlay dialog box if it comes into sight.
  • Some people have more than one CD drive in their computer. If you have multiple CD drives in your computer too, select the one you would like to use in the navigation window.
  • Look for the songs you want to burn.
  • In order to make your burn list, drag the songs from the details pane in the center of the Player Library to the list pane which is on its right side.
  • You can also change the order of the items in the burn list by dragging them upward or downward in the list.
  • To remove a song from your list, simply right-click on the item and click on Remove from list.
  • After you finish making your list, click upon Start burn.
It can take a while to burn a data disc. If your selected items cannot fit in one disc, you also have the choice of burning the rest of the items to a different disc. A data DVD is not the same as a DVD-Video disc ex. the movie DVD you buy or rent from the store.

Try this:

I am trying to burn a cd on my Acer Aspire 5536-5255 using WMP and it isn't working?


In Windows Media Player, click Library and then, in the List pane, click <List Name> List, and then click Burn List, as shown in the following screen shot.
  1. If you need to clear the list before beginning, click Burn List, and then click Clear List.
  2. Drag a folder from the Contents pane or songs from the Details pane to the List pane to create a list of songs to burn.
  3. In the burn list, drag songs up or down to arrange them in the order you want them to appear on the CD.
  4. Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW disc in the CD drive.
  5. In the List pane, verify that the songs you have selected to burn will all fit on the disc. If necessary, remove songs from the list by right-clicking a song and then clicking Remove from List, as shown in the following screen shot.

It is possible that a song will not fit even if the total time exactly matches the CD length, because the Player inserts two seconds between songs when burning. Click the Start Burn arrow and verify that Audio CD is selected, as shown in the following screen shot.
lick Start Burn.As the CD is burned, you can check its progress in the burn list. Burning a CD will take some time.Notes It is recommended that you do not try to perform any other actions while burning a CD. For example, playback may be affected if you try to play a music CD while burning a CD.

You cannot burn additional files to a CD after burning is completed. If you are using a CD-RW, you can erase the entire CD before using the Player to burn files to the CD again.

Error message/cannot burn cd in cd burner


This seems to me to be an AutoPlay issue, where the default action for blank CD-media is to format it, and might be a feature of your burning software. To resolve this, you could try the following:
  1. Open AutoPlay by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking AutoPlay.
  2. In the list next to the device or type of disc, click Ask me every time.

Burn DVD


Read on your optical drive. If it burns CD's it reads CD-RW. In order to burn DVD's it needs ro read DVD-RW. If it reads DVD-ROM it will only read DVD's not burn them.

A good external burner is Plextor. You can get one at Walmart, or you can check Ebay and find an internal to replace the one in your machine. They are fairly easy to replace, and you won't have a bulky external to carry around.

DVD became a CD driver???


Early in the Disk burning process (at least with some of the older versions of Nero), you get to select which device to use as your writer.

Some devices get two entries on this list - one as a CD burner and one as a DVD burner (with the default being whichever you used last).

See if you can select the "DVD burner "instance of your device.

Cd burner


Hi moose,

Go to Start>Control Panel>System>Hardware tab>Device manager. Click the + by DVD/CD-rom drives, see if your CDrom is listed. If it is, right click on it, and select Uninstall.
Reboot, and WIndows should find it, and reload it. If it doesn't show up, good chance your CDrom is dead.

Good Luck
