The easiest thing to do is to update the firmware on the drive. If that doesn't work, check to see if the drive is getting adequate power, which can be caused by new hardware being installed that is taking up more power than the power box can give.
Clean the plugs and ribbon leading to the computer with a quick burst of compressed air.
If that still doesn't work, the laser may be mis-alligned, or borken, and is much easier to replace the whole drive. (CD-RW burners are insane cheap with DVD-RW burner drives being out for a long time, and Blu-Ray burners just around the corner)

I can't get it to override a information on a disc or add more video to disc


There are several types of DVD disks:
* DVD-R -- "write-once-read-many"
* DVD+R -- "write-once-read-many"
* DVD-R DL -- "write-once-read-many" (dual-layer)
* DVD+R DL -- "write-once-read-many" (dual-layer)
* DVD-RW -- "quick-erase-then-rewritable"
* DVD+RW -- "quick-erase-then-rewritable"

So, there is no way to "add-later" -- once you have written, the disk is "closed" to further writing.
The 'RW' disks can be quick-erased (takes about 60 seconds) and then you can start again to write, but that still is not the same as "add more video".

Will not burn a cd anymore, trying to burn a cd of pictures, keeps saying insert a recordable disc, I AM, they are all new ones I put in!


Try the "new" disks in another computer.
Or, try "new" disks made by a different manufacturer.

I suspect that your CD-drive has "died".
So, for less than $50, you can buy a brand-new CD/DVD device for a desktop computer.

Why is a CD-RW a read only disc? I added folders


A CD-RW is like a school-room black-board.
You can write on the black-board, until it is full, using CD-writing software, not using 'File/Save' dialogues.

When the black-board is full, you "erase" the whole thing,
and start again. When the CD-RW is "full", use the CD-writing software to "erase" the complete disk.

That "someone" may be correct: there is a way ("packet-writing") that software can allow a pre-formatted CD-RW to be used as if it were an "ordinary" writable device, e.g., 3.5-inch diskette, or USB memory-stick.

No music on burned discs


You need to try a commercial cd of any kind. You just want to see if it reads the cd. Then you want to try a dvd and see if it reads that. If it reads the cd but has trouble with the dvd then the heads are out of alignment. It might still write a cd but not be able to write a dvd as that require more accuracy and it doesn't have it anymore.

You may still be able to use the drive but you will have to replace it. The symptoms you describe are typical of the driver going out of alignment so I would say you are heading for replacement sooner or later.

These are not cost effective to repair anymore so all you can do is replace them. Unless you can get it replaced under warranty you can replace it for under $50 at any local computer store.
