Yes they can if the files that had viruses on them were burnt to a CD or DVD, then if these files are copied to your computer then your computer will be infected.

Having trouble trying to record from hdd to disc on a LG RH735T. it will initialize the disc and then ejects. their is no button switching from hdd to disc

Your computer has a virus, or you are trying to write an image that you had recorded with another version of the software burner.
confirm the size of what you want to write e. g cd or dvd.
a cd should not be more that 700 mb and for dvd should be not more than 4.5/7 gbs.

Normally computers today have a recovery partition or a recovery disc. you will need one of these to boot the computer up and recover or repair the computer. most of the time its easier to just pull out the hard drive attach it to a working computer carefully copy the files they want or need and make sure to virus scan them and then just do a fresh install of windows on it with a virus protection program as well.

Maybe the ejectable part of the dvd is not functioning. Use a pin to eject dvd disc insert the pin to the small hole you can see in the front of dvd drive and push. Now you can get the dvd disc.

Nero cannot burn DVD inserted in my LG GSA-H55N DVD-RAM rewriter

Have you tried other discs, or just that one? It might be that the disc you've inserted already has something written on it, and you can't burn a DVD-R twice. From the error message you're getting, that would be my guess.

I wanna ask one thing, does your compter show CD/DVD drive in My Computer menu? If yes, then its hardware of DVD/CD drive problem, not a virus. Clean the lens of drive with fine cotton swab, hope it works/ reads.

Sometimes the DVD is not recognized in Explorer as DVD but CD, this will be set right once you put in a DVD-disc.
BUT - there is also an issue when Explorer totally loses the ability to find your CD and DVD. Probably after a virus infection that has been eliminated by your anti-virus program, thus also removing these devices from Explorer. You will find them in Device Manager, but not in Explorer. You can't upgrade drivers, they already have the latest drivers...
If this is the case - go online and search for "CD and DVD-fix", - install it, and your back on the track again!

Troubles with disc skipping

Sounds like a software problem. Go back to the original like you said it installed this kind of burner? Dont forget to uninstall it and then reinstall see what happens then. Might be a virus lurking..... and activated the problem of what you have?. Im not saying you did but some people try to copy DVD and they have a safety tab on them to stop this and some clever people linger a Virus for such crime.
