Question about Sony VAIO RB30C (VGCRB30) PC Desktop

VGC-RB30 DVD/CDR DRIVE

I Have XP3 and when I try to burn a cd or dvd. The burner automatically ejects the cd and a message pops up that tells me to insert a blank disc. Do you think this is a software issue of hardware problem. I have been struggling with this issue for a few months and I have already looked in to fixing the registry and that is not the issue.

Greatly Appreciative,

David

You actually perhaps using a non blank disc at that time. Burners don't really accept non writeable Discs. Check your CD first before burning. If you are using a rewriteable disc (CD-rw) that has files, it can burn and files will be overwritten but if you're just using a CD-r with files in it, the burner will eject and will tell you to insert a blank disc.

    Try to use DVD+R. Maybe your DVD burner only supports (+) CD/DVD Types. Drop me a comment and i would be happy assisting you.

Why does my burner heeps ejecting blank discs


You must be using the wrong type of disk. Make sure if you are trying to burn a CD that you have a blank CD in the drive. If you are trying to burn a DVD make sure it's a blank DVD in the drive.

CD/DVD problem


It might be that the DVD's you are using are damaged / scratched or of the wrong format. Some DVD- burners won't take DVD+ dvd's for example.

Dvd will not play movies


I'm assuming the system says that there is no disc and you've tried factory DVDs (self made ones can have intermittent results on different burners).

If that is the case, this is probably a problem with the drive's DVD laser. There are two different lasers in most (probably all) combo drives. One for CDs and one for DVDs. You need a new drive.

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.
