Re: cd dvd combo drive

Can you be more specific about which error messages you are getting? This is important because it will tell us whether the laser or motor is burned out, or if you are just being stopped by copy protection.

Dvd cd rom cannot burn files

If your drive is truly just a ROM drive, then all it can do is read. Most systems today ship with DVD-RW drives, but yours might be read-only. Some systems came with combo drives that would burn CDs but only read DVDs. If you find you can burn files onto CD but not DVD, that could be why.

If your system has a DVD-RW drive, it's not unusual for them to develop the strange problem that they can burn one type of disc but not the other. This is because of the optical system, which is like two systems in one package to handle the two kinds of media.

If the drive has been working properly and now just won't burn at all, make sure you have the settings correct in whatever burning software. Then replace the drive. New drives are so inexpensive now that if they stop working it's not worth any effort to try fixing them.

Check the Drives Device drivers are not Corrupt Or Missing.

Samsung dvd rw with octo edge dvd rom says burning failed for dual layer disc

I will presume that you do not have a combo DVD.
If you have a "combo" drive, it doesn't burn any DVDs.

First, has the burner ever burned dual-layer DVD's successfully?
Radio Shack has a laser cleaner ($13). Read & follow the directions. It is an audio CD with a row of brushes. No chemicals involved.

Use Verbatim DVD's, they are the best. Samsung is also a top brand.

I have a gateway with windows xp and my dvd rom won't read dvd-r

it could be that your dvd drive is only able to read dvd discs not to burn them, if its a combo drive its very likely a cd burner that can read dvd discs.

if you send me the brand and model or the full name / details of the drive I could check on it.

Data are not shown

most older drives can't read multi session... you need to have a drive installed to be able to read multi session burn. there is no software tweak that can fix this... you need to replace the drive. otherwise burn the data as single session.

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive

ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
