A DVD/CD combo burner has two lasers in it (one used to burn CD's and the other to burn DVD's) and if the one that is used to burn CD's has stopped working it would stand to reason that it would be able to burn DVD's but not CD's. If the computer isn't under warranty, I would just go buy another DVD/CD combo burner. If the computer is still under warranty, take it to an authorized repair station for that model/brand of computer. The only other thing you might try is to clean the drive with a CD cleaner disk.

After running a CD burn, PC treats it as a blank disc


Try putting the burned disc into another computer to see if it reads it. If not then it could be an issue with the disc burner itself. The laser could be going bad and that would cause the burner not to burn discs properly.

Burn a Data CD or DVD in Windows 7 Using Media Player


You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player. An audio CD can contain just approximately eight minutes of music. On the other hand, if you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player, it will be able to hold numerous hours of music. Video files and pictures can also be added to the data discs.
When you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7, the Windows Media Player does not transform the selected files to a different format prior to saving them to a blank data disc, so the files stay in the compressed condition. This allows you to put much more items on a single disc.As the format of the files is not changed, the quality of the files remains the same.

You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player as follows:
  • Click Start.
  • Click All Programs.
  • Select Windows Media Player.
  • Click the Burn tab in the Player Library.
  • Click Burn options and select Data DVD or CD.
  • Insert a blank disc into the CD or DVD burner of your computer.
  • Close the AutoPlay dialog box if it comes into sight.
  • Some people have more than one CD drive in their computer. If you have multiple CD drives in your computer too, select the one you would like to use in the navigation window.
  • Look for the songs you want to burn.
  • In order to make your burn list, drag the songs from the details pane in the center of the Player Library to the list pane which is on its right side.
  • You can also change the order of the items in the burn list by dragging them upward or downward in the list.
  • To remove a song from your list, simply right-click on the item and click on Remove from list.
  • After you finish making your list, click upon Start burn.
It can take a while to burn a data disc. If your selected items cannot fit in one disc, you also have the choice of burning the rest of the items to a different disc. A data DVD is not the same as a DVD-Video disc ex. the movie DVD you buy or rent from the store.

I bought some old radio shows on from amazon, and it such a large number of shows that they put them on a dvd . I would like to down- load them on cd so I can play them in my car or cd players....


It depends on the format that they were put on the DVD initially, to play these on a car stereo or CD player they may need converting to be recognised by a standard CD player.

In vista, you can use Windows Media Player to do this. I'd recommend copying them to your computer from the DVD by creating a folder called "radio shows" or similar in an area you can easily find again On the desktop is a good place.

Now open Windows Media Player and insert a blank CD into your CD/DVD drive (I'm assuming you have an optical drive that will burn cd's)

In the menu of Media player, you will see a tab called "burn", click on it and you get the option on the right of the pane to "create a burn list". Make sure the icon says audio cd

Now open the folder you just created called "radio shows", select the first shows you want to burn to cd and drag the file onto the area marked "drag items here to create a burn list"

As you add files the CD meter should start to fill up, when it is near full, you can click on "start burn" which is at the bottom of the pane. Your compilation should now burn to a cd, repeat for the next cd.

If you get stuck, under the burn tab, there is a help with burning guide

How to burn a dvd from an acer laptop


The laptop should have come with CD/DVD burning software preloaded. Acer's specs page for your model says it comes with NTI Media Maker. The program will have help information available to guide you through, and you can find more help online. If you just want to write data files onto a DVD, the process typically is not much more than dragging files to a layout window and telling the program to burn the disc. This gives you a way to back up data, or to store movies in formats you can view on a computer (AVI, MPG, etc.).

On the other hand, if you're asking how to make a video DVD that will play in a regular DVD player like a commercial movie, maybe with features like menus or scene selection and such, the process for making that kind of DVD is more involved. You need some DVD authoring software. NTI may offer that capability, but I'll admit I have never looked.

In most cases, the software that comes preloaded on computers is a limited version of some commercial product. The computer manufacturers get paid to include the program, and the software company hopes you'll buy the full version when you discover the limitations. If you don't want to pay for software, there are free, more full-featured programs available for downloading.

For general CD and DVD burning, I use CDBurnerXP. To make video DVDs, I use a program called DVDStyler. Both are open-source, meaning they are 100% free to download and use, and they both offer a lot of features.

I want to burn Windows Media Audio/Video file to a cd so i could play it to a cd player


put a blank cd in your drive and make a playlist in window media player and open the copy to cd dialog and copy your contents. You can also go for 'nero' for the same purpose which is more easy and better.

Hi,
Perform a system restore and take the computer back to a time before the problems started with burning, or you can download a different media player and try burning with that, real player as a good bit of software to use for burning and Nero is too (Nero is a devoted burning suite)

Get real player here >>>>>>

Get Nero 9 here >>>>>>

I have just brought a new pack of blank CD's, i am


Its a common problem with CDs. Check that your CD drive can PLAY CDs. If so either the CD drives optical head is dirty or your CD pack are low quality. CDs damage real easy. Try putting another CD, another brand or you must use CD doctor-something like that. Did that help

2002 JEEP [Wrangler] CD player will not play Nero burnt CD's


I had the same problem in my 1998 Jeep GC Limited. It has been a year and a half since I have played a burnt cd in my cd player. I researched everything possible and came to the conclusion that it was either the type of cd I was using (some cds with prints etc are hard for the laser inside the player to read) or the burning speed, and after many failed attempts, I still couldn't find a combination that would work. Then yesterday, my brother had a burnt cd he had made with his computer and we tried it just to see if it might work and it did! So, the brand of cd is Memorex, the type is CD-R, and they are 80min. worth of recording time. I purchased some of these cds at Hastings (although I'm sure they are avaliable wherever you purchase blank cds) and tried burning one in my laptop just to make sure it was going to work and it did! I burned the cd using windows media player and before I started the burn I went into 'burn options' and set the burning speed to the lowest possible. Hope this helps!
