I can't seem to play the dvds that I burn on any of my dvd players. Maybe I need to change the way they are writing? If so how do I do that?

    What software are you using? Are you making a duplicate dvd or burning one that has been downloaded?

Dvd burner not detected


Sorry, but that model is not a DVD writer. It can only write and rewrite CD's. It can only read DVD's.

Here is a page with specs:

My laptop's DVD player (Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K17KL) won't read or write DVDs but will play CD audios. Is this a hardware or software problem?


It could be a wrong burning software, try out Nero, but my experience is that usualy these things are dieing this way, first they won't write dvd than won't even read later they are even haveing troubles with cds.
If that's the case than it's time to use your warranty if you have any left, or if you don't but you want to fix it than just bring it to the local laptop repair center and they'll change it for you for 30-60 GBP+ their services or just buy one at ebay and do it yourself, but in that case double check what you are ordering, or ask the seller about compatibility.

My dvd driive in my computer won't play dvds


Do you mean DVD movies wont play? If so you need to install DVD software. Use Google to search for some or buy some e.g. PowerDVD.

Wont burn cds , files , etc


well it could be many reasons why it wont write your burner but first what software you are using for burning. it happens to me before using media player when i try to burn music. the reason was i haven't configure my media player to use my dvd burner for burning because i have dvd burner and a cd burner installed. Now maybe you try to reinstall it using your dvd driver the one which with your dvd burner when you first bought it.
