Re: Write to CD
Hi. This is common. It usually means the laser diode is too weak to burn the layer on the disc, or the lens has lost it's clarity. This means the optical pickup assembly requires replacement. Probably time to replace the drive.

First you need music to put on the CD. You can put your own music CD in the drive and run Windows Media Player and rip them to your hard drive (copies them). After you get all the songs you want onto your hard drive, you can make an audio CD if you ripped the songs as WAV files (this CD can be played in most CD players) or you can make an MP3 CD if you ripped the songs as mp3 files (this CD can only be played in CD players that support the MP3 standard). To make the audio CD or MP3 CD, just download the free program called BurnAware from the internet and run it. Insert a blank recordable CD in your computer, choose Audio CD or MP3 CD, then choose the songs you want and burn the CD. That's it.
MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player.For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable tothe MP3 player and the computer. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.Click on this link for instruction on converting musicfiles to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files
It should "play" commercially-produced audio CD disks.
With the correct software (PowerDVD, et cetera) it should "play" commercially-produced audio/video DVD disks.
It seems to be reading "data" disks (MP3 files are just "data" files), and passing them to your software (Windows Media Player, iTunes, WinAmp) for decoding and playing.
You need software (Nero, or AShampoo Burning, or ...) to be able to "burn" CD and DVD disks.
are you trying to rip an audio cd or copy data?
if you are ripping an audio cd you can use windows media player. if you are trying to transfer data just go to start menu go to computer right click and select explore cd. select the files you want drag and drop the files where you want on your hard drive
oh my frd...it happens bcoz u could hav burned u r cd in data files format...wch will not detected by the cd player...cd player detects only the mp3 formats...so nxt tym u burn a cd check whether the option wch u given s mp3 format for audio files...and main thing is that check whther u burned a CD or DVD...bcoz CD player will not detect DVD...a DVD player can detect CD whereas CD player cant detect DVD disc my frd!!!!
you cannot just copy the audio track from the audio CD, RIP it ur convert it into mp3 or wma format by using and mp3 converter or in the windows media player, you can RIP there to copy the music from you music CDs.. Good luck!
If it reads data it will read music (which is only data!)
Do you have a Music Program installed? The type of program will depend on whether the music is in CD Audio format or is in the MP3 format.
Windows media player should be able to read Audio CD's (but I don't think it will read MP3's). If you are trying to play a CD encoded as MP3 then you will need to search for a program that plays MP3's (there are many free ones on the Internet.
If it will not read Data, then buy another unit and install it (they are terribly cheap nowadays and uneconomical to repair).
