On my dell inspiron 5160, I can play cd & dvd, & record cd but can not record on blank dvd, Roxio says drive is empty and no space?? I have fixed graphics card and reinstalled xp, hope you can help...


Are you sure it is a DVD writer, the specs for this laptop has a number of different drives one of which is a DVD/CD combi drive meaning it can read and write CD's but only read/plays DVD's.
Check the drive fascia if it says DVD-rom then it only reads them.

Does my laptop have a dvd burner


Can I have your laptop model number.

You can also confirm the same by looking at the drive externally

If it has DVD-RW and DVD-RW DL on it then it can read and write CD/DVDs
DVD - R ROM then it can read DVDs but cannot write.
CD-ROM/ CD-RW cannot read / write DVD

I can not be abel to read writed CD


These discs that are written on other systems, were they finalized or are they multi-sessions discs that have been left open? Some drives have difficulty dealing with multi-session discs created by other drives. By telling it it is OK to format the CD, it is writing a new TOC (Table of Contents) that is blank since it did not see anything on the disc previously (so it didn't know there was anything to carry over from previous sessions). Now all other drives that try to read this disc are now reading an empty TOC and figure it is a blank CD.

You can try writing a disc on another computer and making sure it finalizes it, then try reading it with your laptop. You can also try to burn data to a CD on your laptop making sure the disc is finalized and try to read it on another computer to verify these suspicions.
