Need to know the Make & Model of DVD Drive if possible, if not Make & Model of Emachine PC.
Sounds like the Booksetting has been changed, and is quite a common problem. If can get the DVD Make & Model Number, then it may be possible to download the firmware to set the Drive back to Factory Default Settings, and should burn DVD's as normal.

While I was trying to burn a back up recovery disk for my emachine's windows vista, emachine didn't come with one, but a program on it to install one. I was told to use 10 writeable cd's or 2 dvds, i...


The problem here is that when disk burners stopped being $400 each, the quality went way down. What's likely happening is that your burner is sucumbing to an alignment or heat-related issue. My gut feeling tells me that you should do the burn, then wait about an hour (maybe two) and do the second disk so the electronics and mechanical parts have time to cool off.

[rant] The real issue in your case is that eMachine's recovery system is an after-thought. Any well thought-out system would let you select which disk to burn or give you the option to make ISOs so you could burn them on another machine. More importantly, they should just let you do this to an 8GB USB stick and call it a day. I would avoid machine that can't be bothered to give you an easy way to recover their machines, then give you the responsibility of creating the recovery media on sub-par hardware. [/rant]

Anyway, let me know how it works out.

How to use dvd burner


If your system came with a DVD burner, suitable disc burning software (Nero or Roxio are common) should have been pre-installed. Run the burning program and look at its "help" screens, or visit the company's website, for information on using the program.

If you've just put a DVD burner in a system that only had a CD burner, you should install new burning software. The drive may have come bundled with a program. If it didn't, CDBurnerXP or InfraRecorder are good basic programs, and both are free.

If you want to be able to author video DVDs with menus, you'll need other software. DVDFlick is a free authoring program that works very well.

Hope this will help get you going. Thanks for using Fixya!

Does this have a cdrom?


YES, it has a 48x CD ROM drive.

It is not a burner.

You can play music read data from the CD, but you cannot burn CD's or DVD's.

How do I burn a dvd movie from the Movie Maker so we can watch it on a regular dvd player


Burning a DVD is not all that simple. Some Emachines come with a DVD player drive but not burner. Just because your system has windows movie maker on it does not mean it can actually produce them. You need to make sure it actually has a DVD writer on it and not just a player.

If so I would definatly look into some additional software for making DVDs as movies maker is flakyand not all that great. If you are not finding the option to burn the movie in movie maker the changes are you do not have a DVD burner insalled but just a DVD player drive.
