    I don't know exactly what you mean by cd's to formatt your computer because it doesn't take any cd's to formatt it now if you mean the cd's to reinstall windows or whatever OS you are running please specify. As far as the drivers go we will need to know what model of computer you have and what operating system you are using.

You need togo to www.support.dell.comand select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't havethe proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installedreturn to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "servicetag",(serial number) of the computer. Dell keeps a listing of driversfor every customer's computer they sell.

Burn cds


Hi first thing go to

start
control panel
printers and other hardware
system (on left side)
hardware
device manager
DVD / CD rom drives


does it show up as a burner? DVD-RW or CD-RW
if not it may have a wrong driver installed If windows does not recognize it as a burner it will never work untill you get past the driver issue.

If the correct driver is installed
should be pretty simple there are many ways to burn
right click on a file and select SEND TO and send it to your burner usually drive D add all your files then select BURN FILES

or if they are media files you can use Windows Media Player

if all else fails track down a copy of Nero burning rom software or Roxio easy media creator.

Finally having said all that are you using the correct media?
if you try to burn files using a DVD on a non DVD burner it won't work.

also older burners were finicky and you had to watch your + and -'s

meaning if a DVD-R isn't working then try a DVD+R

if its an older burner you may consider upgrading it, a DVD burner can be bought on ebay or newegg for about $50 and its only a 2 cable install so its not to hard.

Another more extreme solution is to save all your files which you should be keeping in the "my documents" folder and do a system restore. (requires the factory restore disks)

This is very time intensive and can be VERY tricky but if the computer has been running for 3 plus years and is running slow it could probably use a fresh start and anything that has been corrupted over the years gets wiped away.

Hope that helps

I am unable to format CDs - the system just


Take a can of air and blow some into the drive. This will make sure that no dust or dirt is interfering on the laser.

If after you do this the drive is still acting up, then that means the drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

CANNOT WRITE CDS


Had a drive that did the exact same thing myself. You'll need to replace the CD drive. It's cheaper than having it repaired.

Cd burner won't work.


Could be several things, try a different brand of cds. if that is a no go...try this, go into the device manager and click on DVD/CD-ROM drives and get your exact model of burner. then go to this page: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSP_DSKTP_D531S&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid= and find that one and download and install the drivers. also looking for firmware updates and Urgent updates.
It isn't that bad to do...good luck hope this helped,, please leave a rating.

P;ease help me. i use real player to burn cds. ive never burt a dvd. but i want to use it now and my player keeps telling me my cd and dvd burners are not detected. why are they not working please help me.


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.

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.
