A DVD is just over 4 GB of data, while  CD is typically only 650 MB.  With the cheap price of DVDs and drives these days, there isn't much practical reason to have a CD burner over a DVD burner unless you are specifically burning CD-Audio discs.

When I insert blank DVD disc into DVD/CD-RW, and click it say insert the disc?


Hi,

My first test would be to determine if the blank DVD is faulty. Try using a different brand of DVD and see if you get the same error. My experience tells me that your combo drive is faulty however. It is possible for a combo drive to read a CD but not a DVD. I would replace the combo drive with a DVD writer as they are not too expensive.


Best wishes,

Missing drivers


Hello makubi, hi, on windows you don't need the driver. windows already has one installed, if you cannot find the DVD drive on the my computer most likely you have a problematic drive. try using a good DVD drive. or swap the drive to other computers to confirm if the drive is bad. If on other computers the drive is still bad replace the DVD drive.

Cannot backup files to a cd/dvd


we may need more details but you can try this for now

1. are you sure you have a cd writer or a dvd writer (writer = burner)--- check the front edge of your cd/dvd unit and look for words like "writer" "burner" or writeable next to the word dvd or compact disc... keep in mind not all cd/dvd writer can write (burn) cd or dvds, some may burn cd but not dvds.

2. is your cd/dvd unit compatible with the media (cd or dvd blank disk) you are trying to use.. depending your cd/dvd especifications your dvd/cd drive is compatible with certain types of cd or dvds that are writeable.

3. is the cd/dvd a writeable cd/dvd and is compatible with your cd/dvd drive? for instance.. if you are using a blank dvd and your cd/dvd drive only burn cd/s and read dvd and cd you won't be able to write to the blank dvd.

4. are you trying to burn a dvd in a corporate computer.?? as a user (not an administrator) of your corporate computer you may not have priviledges that will allow them to burn dvd/cd's even you your drive and your media are compatible.

please post
the error that you get
the brand and model of the computer you're using
the type of media you're using

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
