Can't tell what my DVD drive is capable of


The DVD drive is an 8X burner, not a ROM (read-only).
The laser lens may need cleaning.
Radio Shack has a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner ($13). It is an audio CD with a row of brushes. No chemicals involved. Read and follow directions.
It won't mess anything if not done correctly.
Best DVD media is Verbatim. Best price is found at OfficeMAX.

Dvd/cd-rw combo does not record


You may have what is called a combo drive...it can play and burn cds but can only play dvds, not burn them. Look at the face plate on the drive and see what is written on it. If it has the following:
Recordable Drive = CD Burner
DVD = DVD Player
RW & DVD = DVD Burner

If recordable drive and DVD is on the drive but no RW, chances are its a combo drive. Keep us posted.

Burn DVD


Read on your optical drive. If it burns CD's it reads CD-RW. In order to burn DVD's it needs ro read DVD-RW. If it reads DVD-ROM it will only read DVD's not burn them.

A good external burner is Plextor. You can get one at Walmart, or you can check Ebay and find an internal to replace the one in your machine. They are fairly easy to replace, and you won't have a bulky external to carry around.

Acer issue: itunes wont recognize my cd burner


The DVD burner *IS* the CD burner (the same drive does both jobs). Does Windows itself recongize it? (if so, is it able to burn CD's using it?)

Cd burner


What programs can I use to burn or create CD's on my computer? If you're running version 10 or higher and have a CD/DVD burner drive installed in your computer you can create audio CDs using it.


Computer DVD Support
CH000885, CD or other disc tray does not close or opens by itself. CH000901, My CD or DVD is skipping. CH001014, Can a DVD burner also burn a CD?
What hardware do you recommend or what is the best? What type of burner, CD-ROM, computer, DVD, fan, hard disk drive, monitor, motherboard, mouse, printer, sound card, speakers, and/or video card does.

Computer CD-R help and technical information The CD-R drive does not actually create pits on the CD, instead the burner creates reflective sections on the CD causing the computer's CD-ROM laser to.

Good Luck, Read and follow instructions.Please dont for get to Vote/Thank You.

DVD / CD - RW Combo


When you say you cannot burn DVD's, do you mean you cannot burn DVD movies or do you mean you cannot burn data files to a DVD?

Burning DVD movies requires specific software to transcode the video and create a directory structure that DVD's players expect.

When you try to burn DVD's does it produce an error? What software are you using to burn?
