    W3507 3.2g cpu, 2g ram, Window xp Media center edition, service pack 2.Factory dvdrw GSA-H21N, added a lite on SOHW-1613s dvdrw. All work fine for almost two years then both drives just stopped burning. Both drives will play cds and dvds. A blank cd or dvd will show 0 free space and 0 used. dvd's will show as a cd with 0 free space, 0 used. I have restored to a check point when it was working, updated/reinstalled the drivers, reflashed the firmware on the drives, new cable, tried setting the drives as master/slave from cable select, but the problem remains. If I uncheck the box to enable recording on the drive, then enable recording it will record on a blank cd, but that don't work on dvd's.One program that I use a lot will still record to a dvd, Proshow Gold. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Are you sure your cd drive is a cd burner & not just a cdrom?

Could be a missing driver file. Or the plug between the 2 could be undone internally. Or the "Properties" settings could be unchecked.

I had this same problem w/ mine. Took me 4 months to figure it out. Got it working again but couldnt play audio cds, only dvds.

Go under control panel to hardware & find out exactly the name of the maker of the drive. It should be in there.
Search that maker ie ~ Philips CD Rom with Sonic DLA burning software.

I got pretty lucky finding info specifically for EMachine. It's a generic computer so shouldnt have any problem finding info about the drive & the software. Perhaps even look for Updates. This could help also.

My computer wont recognise my dvd burner but it will read and play dvds just wont burn them and when i try a new dvd burning tool it cant fint my burner


Is your DVD drive a Combo DVD ROM and CD Read/writer? If so it cannot burn DVD only reads DVDs and read and burn CDs.
If the program cannot find a DVD burner then either the burning software cannot support that model DVD burner ot the DVD burner is faulty.
To test the DVD burner, remove it and install it into another computer to test the burner to see if is faulty.

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds


It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

My cd rom won't detect blank cds


Hi,

try re-installing your burning software ( nero-Roxio et,c )
Does it play a standard Music/Audio CD.
if not un-install and re-install the drive.
Are the cables to the drive connected correctly ?
Does the drive support CD+ And CD- media ?
Are the cds definately Blank, any small amount of data written to them, after failed burn attempts will not show the disk as being empty.
