The only solution is to buty an external cd/dvd burner with a buffer under burn built in in use a decent burning program like nero, or nti or any other ones that let you choose the burn speed as I use 8x for cd's and dvd's but somtimes the burner won't alow me to change speed.

I know this is the one way or have the burner looked at by an engineer thats the other solution.

Good luck with this one

Not reading cd roms


I would say that could indicate that the CD you are trying to burn files onto is either partly written to OR which I suspect incompatible media type. Yes some burners are fussy, dislike certain makes and or types - or + eg CDR+ I've had this problem a couple of times over the 10 tears I've been burning discs and can never recall which ones are the least likely to fail, i.e. some are very compatible with just about all burners. Check Burner specs.

Hi.
I don't know if this is the case or not, but most burners will fail if you try to use an off name type of disk.
I have had a burner in my computers for several years now, and here is what I have found.
TDK, Maxell, and Dynex brand disks work almost every time.
Sony disks work most of the time, but only at lower to medium speeds.
Memorex disks are a crapshoot, you could have a stack of 50, and maybe 3 or 4 will fail, and then again, maybe 15-20 will fail.
GQ brand works great at slower speeds, but fail alot at high speeds.

Also, you may want to invent in a lens cleaner disk, as it might be that three is dust and dirt inside your burner, and that is what is causing your burner to fail out no you.

I hope this helps you out, and good luck to you.

Hello there!
Your burner can't recognize CD.
You should restart your computer, or try to burn different mark of CD (Verbatim, Princo, etc.).

CD burner quits while burning


Hi There,

I sugesst that you look at the recent hotfixesyou have installed. I would install SP3, and take from there. I am sure that you have tried buring at a slower speed.

No the burner will not burn out, but could do with a clean, you can buy cleaning disk from a pc shop..

Please let me know how you get on - good luck

regards,

Philip

CD Burner on Gateway Laptop


Sounds like the CD burner has gone out. First try doing a hardware search to see if it finds snd recognizes the CD burner. If not it will need to be replaced. Keep in mind that the drive may still read CD's fine without the ability to burn them.

CD burner and possibly the CD Drive


Try a different blank CD, I have thrown out many new blank CD's and DVD"s, and for some reason one will work and the next won't.
