Windows can only write to CDR disks in its internal drivers, and to burn DVD's requires a 3rd party program such as NERO or NTI.

Hi there,

Try uninstalling the Driver in Device Manager: in XP or earlier: Start/Control Panel/System/Hardware Tab/Device Manager, or in Vista & 7: Start/Control Panel/Device Manager.

Once in Device Manager click on the + sign that is in front of 'DVD/CD ROM drives' to open it up, then right click on the model of the Optical Drive in question.

Click Properties/Driver Tab/Uninstall (Advanced) & this will remove the driver if it is corrupt. Restart your system & the Hardware Manager will recognise the Optical Drive & install the necessary Driver.

If this doesn't solve your dillema then I hope that you have a warranty. Good luck in trying.

Kindest regards,

Ste

DVD RW won't burn files.


Please test it with DVD-R. This laptop may have a drive which is not compatible with DVD+R or DVD+RW media. Also, if the drive is dying, it will not burn DVD media anymore, but it may burn CD media.

I am probably doing something wrong. I want to use a DVD RW to store data but it seems the MS Media center is all I have. Is there a way to use these types of removable storage like a CD-RW? Could I need...


You can use programs like Nero to burn data onto a disc such as a CD-RW. Since you already have a DVD burner you can even use a DVD-RW to burn your data

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

I'm very late to your question, but the problem is that this drive doesn't burn DVDs (i.e., it was not designed to do that). It's a CD-RW, DVD-ROM (read only).

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.
