Re: T6216 CAN'T USE CD BURNER ERROR MESSAGES INDICATES NO...
Sounds like your CD drive is gone. Try inserting a program cd and see if it reads it. You can also switch the cable attached to the cd drive. Make sure you get a power light on the cd drive when you start the PC, if not you can try a different power connector from the power supply. Hope this helps.

does CRC(Cyclic Redundancy Check “error”) mean? There are
plenty of technical resources on the Web that discuss cyclic redundancy checks
(CRCs). Most times you won't need to worry about this technobabble. That is,
until one it day it suddenly appears and you think - what the hell does that
mean? In simple terms, a CRC is bit of mathematics used to ensure that your
data is OK when being transfered. It's a checking procedure that quickly
identifies when data has been damaged. If you get this message, it means that
the file being read by your PC or software is corrupted. However, it does not
mean all the data is lost forever. When data is transfered, it is usually in
small blocks and each block is given a CRC value. If something goes wrong with
the data between the time it leaves the source and arrives at its destination,
the CRC sent at the source will no longer match the one that is calculated when
the data arrives - this is when the cyclic redundancy check error will appear. The most
common time you will see the cyclic redundancy check error message is when
trying to read data from a damaged CD or DVD. Just before it appears, your
CD/DVD drive will probably grind and whirl away - your PC may also become a
Less frequent causes are the
result of system crashes, and buggy software (hello Microsoft), incomplete
downloads (often identified by the misleading message 'This is not a valid
Windows file', 'This is not a valid win32 application' or 'Corrupt Zip file').
If this problem happens frequently with downloads, try using a download
For CDs and DVDs, the problem is
a little different. Normally, when CD/DVD drives get a CRC message from a disc,
they try to read the disc again - hence the grinding sound. After several
failed attempts, they give up and display the redundancy check error. The
problem can be hardware (loose cables, failing drive), software or damaged
media. In most cases checking and cleaning the disc is the easiest way to
overcome the problem. If different clean discs produce the same error, it is
likely to be a hardware issue (check the discs in another drive). Another
common cause of these errors is poorly burnt CDs and DVDs - especially those
that had numerous or severe buffer underuns. USB burners suffer from this problem
when the burn speed is too high (generally above 4X-8X)
If the discs are damaged, you'll
probably need a recovery tool to get back your data. CDCheck 3
will work for CDs and DVDs. First it will check the media, and then you have
the option to recover the files. It's free for personal use and has saved many
people heartache when it comes to recovering lost digital images and videos
from damaged CDs.
first open the case and check if the power connector ,and other cables are still connected to the drive. if they are there disconnect the power cable ( while the computer is running and Plug and Play should notice it). then run add new hardware app to see if the system did recognize it, then check the device manager if its there. reinstall the drivers for the burner drive and run program ,and see if it runs ok, if not the drive is bad and will need to be replaced.
My only suggestion is to borrow another burner if possible and see if you get the same error with with that one. This will be the simplest way to determine if you have a software problem or if your burner has a fault.
well it could be many reasons why it wont write your burner but first what software you are using for burning. it happens to me before using media player when i try to burn music. the reason was i haven't configure my media player to use my dvd burner for burning because i have dvd burner and a cd burner installed. Now maybe you try to reinstall it using your dvd driver the one which with your dvd burner when you first bought it.
Again go to my computer, to find properties/hardware/device- highlight the drive, right click and refresh or scan for hardware changes. If its found your device works properly if not found please check when is your drive’s gate open to push the open button? If yes please shutdown your pc and check your drive data cable.
