We may need more details but you can try this for now

1. are you sure you have a cd writer or a dvd writer (writer = burner)--- check the front edge of your cd/dvd unit and look for words like "writer" "burner" or writeable next to the word dvd or compact disc... keep in mind not all cd/dvd writer can write (burn) cd or dvds, some may burn cd but not dvds.

2. is your cd/dvd unit compatible with the media (cd or dvd blank disk) you are trying to use.. depending your cd/dvd especifications your dvd/cd drive is compatible with certain types of cd or dvds that are writeable.

3. is the cd/dvd a writeable cd/dvd and is compatible with your cd/dvd drive? for instance.. if you are using a blank dvd and your cd/dvd drive only burn cd/s and read dvd and cd you won't be able to write to the blank dvd.

4. are you trying to burn a dvd in a corporate computer.?? as a user (not an administrator) of your corporate computer you may not have priviledges that will allow them to burn dvd/cd's even you your drive and your media are compatible.

please post
the error that you get
the brand and model of the computer you're using
the type of media you're using

What error-messages do you get? EXACTLY !

If the recordable-media is "blank" after you think that you have written to it, then the laser inside the burner has failed.

You can just click and drag individual file or folders to your cd or dvd and windows will burn (copy) them. What I normally do is I check the size of the items that I want to copy so I'll know exactly how many disks (cd or dvd) i will need. Have fun!

I have had to replace my hard drive on my pc how can i get my music back on to pc from my ipod and back into i tunes


Backing up your iTunes library to a CD or DVD To burn a CD (CD-R or CD-RW), your computer must have a compatible CD burner. To burn a DVD (DVD-R or DVD-RW), your computer must have a compatible DVD burner. Check in iTunes Preferences to see if a drive is compatible. See below for steps.
To create your backup disc
  1. Choose File > Library > Back up to Disc.
  2. Select the option you want from the resulting dialog and click Back Up.
  3. The two options you can select from are:
    • Back up entire iTunes library and playlists
    • Back up only iTunes Store purchases
    Whichever of these two options you choose, note that you can also choose "Only back up items added or changed since last backup" to perform an incremental backup.
  4. Insert a blank disc (CD or DVD) into your computer's optical drive. iTunes will scan the disc and begin burning.
  5. Note: If the disc you insert does not have enough space to hold all of the content you will be backing up, a dialog will appear asking whether you wish to backup to multiple discs. You can click Data Discs to continue.
iTunes burns the number of items that fit on one disc and then asks you to insert subsequent discs to continue burning the remaining files. Don't eject a disc while a backup is in progress.
Spoken programs purchased from the Audible.com website are not backed up.
Discs you create using the iTunes backup feature can be used only to restore; they can't be played in a CD or DVD player.

Restoring from a backup disc
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Insert your backup disc.
  3. iTunes will ask whether you want to restore from this disc. Click Restore.
Check drive compatibility
  1. Choose a playlist on the left side of the iTunes window.
  2. Click the Burn Disc button on the bottom right corner of iTunes.
  3. If the drive is listed, it's compatible.

The drive database cdrw32.bdb cannot be found i tied to replace file still didnt work now also says nti has stopped working


The following is installation instructions for CD-Maker Professional. For Backup Now, the instructions are the same, however, you will install it in the NTI Backup Now directory, rather than the NTI CD-Maker directory.
To install, please copy the "cdrw32.bdb" file use Windows Explorer or My Computer to copy the database file into the main folder for CD-Maker 2000 Professional. If you installed our software in a different directory then you will need to copy the file into your alternate location.
Example where database file is located:
C:\Program Files\NewTech Infosystems\NTI CD-Maker 2000 Professional

You can also use the find feature in Windows to find the exact location of the database file. Click "Start", the "Search", then "for Files and Folder", then type in cdrw32.bdb and click "Search Now". After it finds the file then you can read under the "In Folder" heading for the correct path where the database file is located. Use Windows Explorer or My computer to copy the database file into this location.

NOTE:
(1) It works only on full retail versions of NTI software
(2) For CD-Maker, it works for Version 5.1.1 or later.
(3) For NTI Backup Now, it works for Version 2.2.33 or later.
(4) For supported DVD burner models, CD-Maker V5.1.XX and Backup NOW! (and DriveBackup!) V2.X will support only the CD burning function of these models, not DVD burning. DVD burning is supported starting from Version 6.0 of CD&DVD-Maker, and Version 3.0 of Backup NOW! and DriveBackup!, respectively.
Thanks for using Fixya

Can Not backup on Newly installed LG burner


Windows backup does not support backup to cd-r,cd-rw or dvd-r etc devices directly
see this article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315255/

So backup the files on to the hard drive first and then burn the backup using a good cd or dvd burning software like Nero, Roxio or PowerISO
here is the link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308422 which will guide you through the steps

Note:Select the backup destination as your local hard disk
