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.

Gateway laptop with DL/dvd burner, burning problem, it stops at 5% and ends with burn fail. i tried all writing softwares under winxp , win 7.


What are you trying to copy? Data? Music? Movie clips? The only thing I can think of is to make sure that what you're trying to copy isn't bigger than what the DVD can hold. That will definitely cause the problem you are describing.

If that's not the case, make sure you do in fact have a DVD in there instead of a CD. Also, make sure your program is set up to copy to DVD instead of CD. You might have hit an arrow and inadvertently set it to CD.

You might also want to try reading a DVD. Do you have any problems reading one?

Make sure also that there are no fingerprints on the disk you're copying to, and try it with three or four different disks.

Or try disconnecting your modem, then turning off your virus checker, and copying it again to see if the virus program is blocking something.

My DVD-RW has stopped burning.


Try uninstalling the burner using the Device manager and letting Windows reinstall the drivers on reboot.

Right click on My Computer then Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > click on the '+' next to DVD/CD ROM drives, right click on the drive and 'uninstall'. Reboot and Windows will re-install the drive.

Lg burner refuse to burn .wav format


  1. try playing the *.wav files on your computer from their location on the hard drive
  2. Make sure that your writer can burn all the other file formats by burning a disk e.g data disk, if it fails then its not a problem with wav files its the writer that require reconfiguration
  3. If it can burn the disk then burn a music audio disk with your *.wav files (music audio cd uses *.wav format)

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.
