CD Burner Does Not Work

When I go to burn cd's (audio or pics) the burner will turn on and just make noise. It sounds like it is working but it burns nothing to the disc. After about 10 minutes the computer just spits the disc out. Why is the burner not working? Help!!

Burning CD-R

Windows Xp don't have its own CD burner. if you mean Roxio, that is 3 party CD burner.
try a different CD. some time the CD burner detect some smudge at the beginning area, then it tell you the CD is NG.
Try to clean the CD with CD cleaner and clean the CD also.

Some time I have to go through 2-3 CD in order to find one that will work.

P;ease help me. i use real player to burn cds. ive never burt a dvd. but i want to use it now and my player keeps telling me my cd and dvd burners are not detected. why are they not working please help me.

burning and cd requires a cd burner... the fact that you burn cds does not necessarily mean that you can also burn dvd's.. to burn a dvd you need to have a dvd burner unit installed. check on tray that comes out on you cd/burner if it says RW DVD.. if not chances are you only have a cd burner but is not a dvd burner.

I cannot burn a music CD from Napster. My blank CD is a CD-R. Do I need RW?

No you do not need RW. With the CD-R you can only burn to it once. With RW you can burn to it multiple times plus erase it.

Most cd burners work with CD+R and CD-R but it is best to be sure.

Be sure to try more than one of your CD-R discs. I've brought out a new cd burner on a warranty repair in the past and found that the customers cd burner was fine and when a different CD-R was tried they were able to burn onto a cd without a problem.

Wont burn cds , files , etc

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.
