You need to make sure that you have an active burning software and your drive is a dvdrw.

DVD burner or writer is a device where you can write a blank cd or dvd for data,music and videos format and also you can play or read your favorite cd or dvd mp3, audio cd and videos format. For burning you must have nero, alcohol and other burning application. In windows xp, vista and 7 are already included, simply drag your data or files you want to burn to you cdrom drive with blank cd or dvd.Then there is a button burn, click that button to write the files onto your cd or dvd. Have a nice day!

I have a Sony DVD DRU-820A burner. When I insert a dvd--either a blank one to burn or a DVD disc to view--the name of the drive switches from DVD-RAM Drive (D:) to CD Drive (D:). The burner no longer burns...


The device is _partially_ broken -- the part that reads/writes DVD media is "dead".

Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" unit.

My combo DVD drive will burn a CD, but when I put in a blank DVD it just opens the drawer and says to insert a disc. Windows XP.


If it is in fact a Teac CD-Rewritable W58E CD-RW Burner, this will only burn CDs and not DVDs. If you put in a blank DVD you will get this error. You will need a burner that has DVD burning support.

I want to record a dvd - how can i do it?


You have three options.
1: Use the built-in burning tool of your drive. Put in a blank DVD, and start dragging files onto it. Right click on the DVD and press "finalize" when done.

2: Download the program "Nero Burning Rom" and follow its instructions. The upside of this, is that it offers burning modes that will let you play some video files on a regular DVD player.
Note: The program costs money, but the free trial lasts long enough to see if you like it.

3: Use CD Burner XP (if works with DVDs too). It is free and has a TON of options, but is a little hard to use for beginners. I'd recommend reading the help file.

What does "multi layer support" mean. Does it write multi layer discs? or is it able only to read them? Also, what is a lightscribe?


Multi-Layer support means the drive can Read/Write a Dual-Layer discs.

Lightscribe means you can create a label on a disk.

Depends what software you are using to burn. Use Nero. then select dvd or cd or whatever. You must state what you are burning onto - you cant create a cd then put a blank dvd into the drive - common sense
