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 :)

Cant burn dvd


You need a dvd burner a burning program and a dvdr burnable disk to be able to burn a dvd
Burning computer files on a DVD can be a great way to backup your information.
Most one-sided writeable and rewritable DVD discs can store nearly five gigabytes of information, while two-sided writeable and rewriteable DVD discs can hold over eight gigabytes.

There are many programs available for purchase that you can use to burn a DVD.
For the sake of this tutorial, we will be using one of the most popular CD and DVD burning utilities Nero Burning ROM.

Read on to learn how to burn a DVD.
Insert your writeable or rewriteable DVD into your writeable DVD drive.

Click on your start menu and select "All Programs," "Nero" and "Nero StartSmart."
Locate the pull-down menu at the top of the window that shows "CD" displayed.

Click on the arrow to view the rest of the menu and select DVD.
Find the icons under the pull-down menu you just used.

Click on the "Data" icon. Then click on "Make Data DVD."
Click on the "Add" button when the Nero Express window opens.

Find the files on your hard drive that you would like to burn to the DVD and select them.
When you're done selecting files, click "Finished."


Select "Next" to get to the Final Burn Settings screen. If you can select the speed at which to write your disc, select the 8x option.

Click "Burn" and wait as your files are burned to the DVD. Click "OK" once the window pops up telling you the burn process was completed successfully. http://www.nero.com/enu/index.html

I would recommend trying BurnAware free DVD/CD burner. You can download this and use it free. It has an option to burn MP3 CDs. Just browse to the folder that has your MP3 files and add them to the burn list, and click Burn. If that works for you, then the problem is not your DVD drive, it is your application.

Cannot burn CDs using itunes anymore!


Go to the Device Manager. Start>Right-Click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware tab>Device Manager. Find your CD/DVD in the list of hardware and click on the "+" sign to expand it and see your brand and model of CD/DVD device. If there is a yellow! or a redX then it is either disabled are is corrupted, just right-click and update driver.. Even if it does not say anything, right click it and update driver. Sounds like your CD ROM has driver problems.

Roxio cd creator 9 cannot burn a cd because it says drive not detected? How do i change this?


1.do you have a cd burner in your system? is it working for you to at least read cds on it? check the cd drive unit has a something that says "compac disk rewriteable" if not.. you don't have a cd burner only a cd rom drive that will only read cds but won't burn them
2. check device manager and look for the removable storage.. do you see the cd burner drive listed and in working condition?

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


You may want to double-check the "error" message. Normally, when you insert a blank CD-R or CD-R/W you'll see a pop-up message that says something like, "you've inserted a blank CD. What program do you want to use to put something on it?" And then it will give a list of programs like Windows Media Player, Nero Burning ROM, Roxio, MyDVD, etc. The last two choices are "Open a writeable folder" and "Do nothing." The next to last, the open folder, option is the CD recording option for Windows. Once you've put copies of that data into the new window click on the "burn these files to disc" link on the left side or located under the File menu at the top of the window.

Now, if it truly is telling you that you have to insert a blank CD, then you may have one of two problems. Either the CD you're putting in is NOT actually blank or the drive is having problems recognizing the media. To test the first scenario, try the disc on another computer. If it's truly blank, then try uninstalling the CD burner from your Device Manager located in the Windows control panel. Double-click on the System icon > Hardware tab > Device Manager > click on the (+) symbol next to DVD/CD-ROM drives and then highlight your Sony CD burner > right-click and in the menu choose Uninstall. Reboot your system and let Windows redetect the drive and reinstall the drivers (You may want to have any install discs handy, just in case Windows asks for them, but not likely).

I hope that helps!

Teac DW-224E-c - cannot burn DVD's


The answer is what you profess. The drive can burn CD's, read CD's and also read DVD's. Everytime I try and burn a DVD I have an unrecognized drive and the properties always show no disk: The drive burns CD's ie;music, but cannot burn DVD it can only read DVD like you say!
