Question about Dell (1Y414) DVD+RW Burner

1 Answer

CD burner Dell Dimension 9150 Computer purchased December 2005 The problem is that my CD burner will not recognize when I put a blank CD-R CD in it to burn. It will recognize a CD-RW. But several times when I have tried another brand of CD-R's, the first few I burn will work fine, and then the drive will no longer recognize the disc. I was originally using a Sonic program, but have also tried Real Player. I have the same problem with both programs.

Re: CD burner

Sounds like an issue with the drive. Is your computer still under warranty? If so then I would call dell and get it replaced. If not, then I would replace it myself.

Wont recognize burned disk

Is the burned disk recognized in some other computer?

Is any "official" (purchased music CD, or purchased DVD video, or purchased Microsoft software) disk recognized when inserted into the device?

If you burn a disk on your computer, can your computer then read that burned disk?

Blank cd's are not recognized by the Dell Inspiron cd burner

I would first try removing the device in the control panel, system, device manager and then reinstalling the driver. There may be a problem caused by a windows update. In general CD drives rarely go bad. If the CD works say for a music CD then it should work for blank cd. You may also want to check the CD type. If you accidentally used a DVD, that won't work and in some of the older CD drives, they may not handle every type of CD format.

Good Luck

Dimension E510 dvd burner will not burn

Go to this link and click on the Fixit box. Microsoft has an issue with CD/DVD recognition and created a patch. This happens a lot when Windows Update runs and installs SP3. Hope this solves your problem. If it doesn't, right click on your DVD drive and ensure that recording is enabled. Hope this solves your recording issue.

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.
