My compaq presario f768wm isnt recognizing my cd/dvd rom. my camera quit working and also it says it can't find my audio output device.

For that problem, Try first replace that internal DVD-rom drive other good internal DVD-rom drive. if not Also Detected or recognize.
Try this second solution. insert external USB type DVD-ROM. if not recognize also, Your operating system Have internal software device data corrupted. You need to reinstall operating System like windows xp, windows 7 (OS) etc.. to fix data Corrupted of operating system device for hardware software.
Please see sample external DVD-rom USB type.

I have just installed the LG portable super multi drive and it wont recognise any audio cd that is in there???

Make sure the data cable and power cables are properly installed. Do any other discs work in the drive?
If you are using this on linux, you should be able to check /dev/ and make sure that the drive is mounting properly.
If it is mounting, then make sure you have all restricted packages installed so you can play audio. DId audio CDs work before?
Try using a different disc, like a movie or a program disc.
If no discs work, the drive may be defective.

When I want to copy a CD must I only record on a CD blank disc; i.e. not a DVD

It depends upon what type of data you want to copy onto a CD or DVD.
If you want to copy and play music in a CD player then it needs to be on a CD disc.
If you want to copy and play movie DVDs in a DVD player then it needs to be on a DVD disc.
If you want to backup data files then it can be on either CD or DVD discs (depending upon the amount of data to be stored on the disc - CD holds 700 Mb, single layer DVD holds 4.7 Gb, and dual layer DVD holds 8.5 Gb of data).
A DVD player can read both CDs and DVDs, but a CD player cannot read DVD discs.

My ACER cd/dvd scb265 combo doesn't read some DVD data disk

Windows Vista by default burns "Live File System" It picks if its Live or not when you are "Preparing the blank disc" this is when it asks you what to you want to title the disc. The problem with Live discs is they don't work on any operating system that came before Windows XP and they don't work on Windows XP if it doesn't have service pack 3. Because of this, you want to burn your CD/DVD as a "Mastered" disc. These are compatible with all operating systems, but any files are permanent *unless you are using CD/RW or DVD/RW, DVD/RAM.

If this was not your problem, please leave a comment and I will get back to you and try to fix your problem =)

Sony DVD-RW DW-D56A drive playing up

I am not posting a solution, but may be the same problem.
I have dell inspiron 510m with DVD - RW sony A 56
It had burnt one DVD till now, but it can NOT burn any more DVDs.
I have tried burning using windows XP-SP2, Nero 6, Nero 8, burn my files 3.01 BUT no use. The only thing I got is different error messages.
I changed many types of DVD-Rom, from sony, benq..trying to rule out the storge media itself as source of error, but again no use.
Astonishingly, it works a CD-ROM Burner very well.
Any suggestions?
