That's easy; you can't format DVDs on anything. You can format DVD+RAM if you want, but you want to be sure to use UDF filesystem 3.5 or so. DVD+R and DVD-R are already formatted, and you can only write them.

Your Acer's barely up to the job, but it can burn at 8-12x, I should think. Athlon XP 2700 are the low bar for burning at 12x. What matters most of course is whether a DVD burner is installed, and it seems that it is from what you can do so far....

I suspect what's missing here is DVD recording software, which you need to make much use out of a DVD burner and DVD-R blanks. Windows doesn't quite do it itself, though it pretends to be able to format blanks and have a way to burn backups to DVD, nobody should try that unless they want to see what an electronic Judas Chair Simulator feels like (thanks Tycho of Penny-Arcade.com!) If you're on Linux, just pick the tool you like or find a likely recent revision using Freshmeat.net; on Windows, you would use Nero ( http://www.nero.com/enu/store-upgrade-center.html ) which costs around $100, especially if your burner didn't already come with it (usually keyed on the serial number....) There are free options too; just check Freshmeat.net or VersionTracker.com to find out the variety of tools out there and what they're for.

That is, if you want to make DVD-videos out of some video you shot, that's different from just burning DVDs; checking out what's out there and some of the books (perhaps by reading some on the shelves or attending a video user group in your city) might help.

Has my Acer Aspire T180-R97Z got DVD burning facilities? It can play DVD's. Thank you, Susan-Jane.


Yes, it has. You can't view DVD's because for that you need specialized codecs or media players. 
To view DVD's install VLC -   http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
To burn dvd disks that can be played on a regular dvd player you need to programs: one to convert your video file - i use

My Acer Aspie 5735 will play some dvd's but not others. When I put the dvd's that won't play into the drive it sounds like the computer is trying to make it work because the drive starts vibrating hard but...


DVD's have different formats. DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW and then there is dual-layer, regional limitations, etc. Check the formats and make sure your DVD player can handle them. Are these recorded DVD's, data DVD's or retail-purchased DVD movies?

Check the Acer website for updated drivers. That means all of them, too, not just the DVD drivers. Check for audio, video, chipset, BIOS, etc. They can all have an effect on the overall playback/rendering performance.

It's not unusual at all for a DVD-ROM to be a bit finicky about copied DVD's that were recorded on other units.
You might be able to figure out why it won't play certain DVD's, but it's unlikely that you'll ever be able to force it to read a DVD that it just doesn't like.

Is there a chance that you are putting the blank media into the drive upside down?
Or after it ejects, have you tried turning the media over and trying the burn again. Does the same thing happen?
