Slimtype_dvd ds8a3s does not burn cd or dvd


Check the Hardware Device Manager and copy the model names for both drives. Then do an Internet Search for each one. Both drives might ROM drives, not burners.
You do need the some burning application software installed to burn disks. try to install Nero BurnLite version 10

you can download it in here http://filehippo.com/search?q=nero

I can't burn cds from my computer.


If you can not burn but can read a CD, that means your writer is no longer working. In this case you have to buy a new CD/DVD writer so that you can burn cd/dvd disc. Have a nice day.

By the way if you have the cd cleaner, run the cd cleaner in your cd drive for about 10 minutes and test for burning. Have a nice day.

How to burn mp3-cd disc to cd-rom


the best way to burn an Mp3 disk is to pick which Mp3 files you want to burn and put them into a folder (the 2 best ways to know if the files are Mp3 are either to mouse over the files or to right click on the file and click properties) then insert your chosen CD or DVD into your drive. when autoplay comes up tell it to take no action or cancel. then click on my computer. then open your Mp3 folder and press Ctrl + A. right click on any file and then click copy. go back into my computer and right click on your CD Drive (usually (D:) ) and click paste. then Click on the CD Drive and find the button that says burn wait for it to burn and you should be done.

I have an e-machines with a dvd/cd-rom in one that will not work.


i understand that your pc has a single dvd-drive that has the problem that it dos read dvds but not cds...
please give model because this is a rare error.
to check it, get the following disks and the freeware program 'burnatonce' (it is a burning software that accesses the drives on a lower than windows basis )
to check from the hardware side what the problem is:

install burnatonce
run it
open tools/device info
and check if the following disc are really recognized or not

a standard music cd(audio cd)
a computer cd(original ! windows install cd or other install cd)
a self burnt cd containing mp3's (CD-R type, 700MB or800MB)
any other computer cd for pc

an original film dvd
a selfburnt film dvd (DVD-R)
an original computer-data dvd (any PC-Game will do)

if only dvd's work, strange!

get a new drive then.

Do you have to have "Secure Disc" installed before you can burn CD's? How do I transfer my music from windows media player to a disc using the external burner? Sorry, I'm computer challenged. ...


hi frankie;
you can use third party software to burn your songs into the disc or you can use the built in burner of Windows. What operating system are you using? some things you need to check before burning:

1. cd-rom capable of burning?
2. is it a cd rewritable or a dvd rewritable?
-you can use cd-r or cdrw on dvd rewritables but not dvd-r/dvdrw on cd rewritable.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1. locate the songs you played on your media player in your computer,highlight it and right click one of the highlighted mp3 then select copy from the list
2. Insert the cd into your optical drive ( cdrom or dvd rom).
3. Open My computer and double click your optical drive icon.
4. Right click on the empty space inside that window and right click mouse then paste
5. There should be a link at the left side of the window that says "Write these files to CD"

***frankie; i would just like to remind you that the music burning im referring to is mp3 music, if you want to burn audio cd, you need 3rd party software for that.

Some cd players(discman, etc.) only play audio music format and not of mp3 format. Provide me details of what you want to do and i will help you. :)
