    I have exactly the same problem with my Toshiba Satellite SA40-231 with its SD-R6112 DVD drive. It accepts many kinds of DVD:s for recording but when I try to read the data later on, no disc is found or the disc seems to be empty. Trying the same, already recorded discs in some other computers they work perfectly. Also reading movie DVD:s is problematic; the DVD drive seems to accept them only when it is on good mood which is about every 4th time I insert a movie DVD into the computer.

    The discs I use are in perfect shape, usually brands like Sony and Maxell, and I have tryid to keep both the drive and the whole laptop clean out of dust so that is not the problem. Interesting is that CD discs work perfectly. These problems have existed eversince I got the laptop some four years ago but I didn't know then it could have been the DVD drive's fault. Just blamed my own stupidity then and of course the two years guarantee "worned out"...

Cant burn dvd

You need a dvd burner a burning program and a dvdr burnable disk to be able to burn a dvd
Burning computer files on a DVD can be a great way to backup your information.
Most one-sided writeable and rewritable DVD discs can store nearly five gigabytes of information, while two-sided writeable and rewriteable DVD discs can hold over eight gigabytes.

There are many programs available for purchase that you can use to burn a DVD.
For the sake of this tutorial, we will be using one of the most popular CD and DVD burning utilities Nero Burning ROM.

Read on to learn how to burn a DVD.
Insert your writeable or rewriteable DVD into your writeable DVD drive.

Click on your start menu and select "All Programs," "Nero" and "Nero StartSmart."
Locate the pull-down menu at the top of the window that shows "CD" displayed.

Click on the arrow to view the rest of the menu and select DVD.
Find the icons under the pull-down menu you just used.

Click on the "Data" icon. Then click on "Make Data DVD."
Click on the "Add" button when the Nero Express window opens.

Find the files on your hard drive that you would like to burn to the DVD and select them.
When you're done selecting files, click "Finished."

Select "Next" to get to the Final Burn Settings screen. If you can select the speed at which to write your disc, select the 8x option.

Click "Burn" and wait as your files are burned to the DVD. Click "OK" once the window pops up telling you the burn process was completed successfully.

I have last week just got and installed a LG BH10 BluRay rewriter. It does read BD and DVD discs okay. It does burn BD25 blank discs though I have to use Imgburn as DVDFab does not seem to think there is...

Hi raywalton826
I think you could try using Verbatim or Sony blanks and use DVD Identifier from , just to make sure you
haven' t been sold crappy stuff .
I also would get in touch with DVDFab to expose my issue with my device and their product .
DVDFab 's guys are extremely client friendly at

Philips driver reads dvd and cd discs but won't write to dvd disc. Philips driver model no DVDR1628K/00. 1,7ghz Celeron, 768 Mb ram. Nero software. Was writing for years. I tried Infraexpress.

Hi rossw8:

You can find the most current drivers for your DVDR here:

If you are rubbing Windows Vista or Windows 7 you shlopw be aware that the supplied software ("Nero Essentials") is not compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Windows Vista already includes its own standard built in functionality to burn your CD. You do not need additional software to burn CD's. For burning DVD the Internet currently offers alternative software which is free and offers similar functionality (like Nero 9 Lite).

Windows 7 already includes its own standard built in functionality to burn your CD/ DVD. You do not need additional software for that. However, the Internet currently offers alternative software which is free and offers similar functionality (like Nero 9 Lite).

Trust this is helpful. Please vote.

The audio lines from the DVD player should be hooked up to the sound card.  If the two audio wires are not connected, no audio will happen.
