    Hi!



    To help you, I need more information, please:

    Type of computer, make, model number

    Operating system

    CD/DVD recording software in use



    Also, assuming this is a Windows based system, please navigate to device manager (through your control panel/system on XP) and see if any yellow question marks or exclamation points are visible on any devices and report back what they are.



    TIA!

If both are malfunctioning it indicates an application error. Uninstall then defrag and cleanup your harddisk from system tools, then re-install your burning softeware. If your O/S is an old installation it might be time to try a fresh install. Also, I would clean both drive lenses with isopropyl and cotton buds just to make sure that is not the issue. My feeling is that you need to reinstall your O/S(windows)

I have an un-formatted DVD-RW. I want to record music on it. First how do I format it so I can record music, and second, can I record music on a DVD-RW?


No you cannot record music to a DVD-RW. You must use CD-R media to record music as CD players cannot read DVDs. However you can burn the music to the DVD if you plan on using a DVD player to play the music. I beleive some recording hardware does allow you to use DVD's, but most use CD-R media or digital media such as a hard drive or flash media.

I burnt a video recording onto a fujifilm DVD-R disc but haven't been able to play it back on my computer or DVD player, any suggestions?


This error is due to improper recording of data on to the DVD. Try getting a new blank DVD and and re-burn the data. If the problem still exists, then try giving the DVD writer to the near by computer technician for support and replace the DVD writer. Thank You.

Have a Compaq Computer. My tower has two places wherein discs can be inserted for various reasons. - Can you tell me which insertion site i.e., top or bottom that will enable playing a CD - commercial...


Probably both will play a cd but sure that one will only record a DVD -/+ or a CD and the DVD recorder will play DVD's. If the CD player is a DVD player it will play DVD's and CD's but not record.

How can you transfer vcr movies to dvd's through the sylvania rwi-r device? thank you!


I connected my VCR player to my DVD recorder with a stabilizer filter; (a little black box) sometimes called a Digital Video Macrovision Stabilizer. These cost about fifty bucks. Play the tape hit record on your DVD recorder.

It's worth mentioning that this takes a while an eight hour tape takes eight hours to record.
