I would like to update my TEAC DVD+RW DV-W58E D.OC burner. It has stopped burning CD R and DVD R discs. How do I do it? Or should I get a new burner?

First, I'd try running a CD lens cleaning disk, see if a dirty lens is the problem.

Second, you could try the TEAC website, see if there's a firmware upgrade for you to download.

Third, you could take it out of your PC, see how far you can dismantle it and give it a clean.

Finally, which you may have to do after option 3 is, yes go buy a new one.

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.

Windows XP not recognizing cds/dvds in my HP DVD640i

Most likely your CD-DVD burning software is corrupted. When that happens, the machine doesn't recognize the existence of the CD/DVD hardware. Clean up your machine, defrag, run a freeware registry cleaer-defragmenter (see C-net for a good one). Then Reinstall/upgrade your burning software (the Windows XP software is not sufficient) either from HP/Compaq, if it came with your machine, or the program website if you purchased it separately. You may find out which it is by using a marvelous freeware program called Belarc advisor.

Writer will read but not burn

Can you remove the burning software and try to burn by dragging files using the built in windows xp imapi? Check the event viewer for any system events around the time when you are having problems. Also try following these instructions:;en-us;314060 If you have another pc you can try the burner with, you would be able to rule out software issues.
