This DVD writer needt be serviced at the local computer shop. As the Drive gear which are used to open & closed the door are not aligned properly are they may have got broken.

Why wont my emachine desktop burn data onto a dvd disk


First check whether you have a DVD writer or not.
1)If you drive is a DVD writer a DVD-RW will be written on top of the drive otherwise it is not a dvd writer...so obviously it will not write a DVD.
2) If the drive is a DVD-RW then you need a burning software to burn diske. Please download any valid burning softwares from the interne such as 'Nero' or 'Power iso' and install the same in your pc to burn dvd.

If you feel that, my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

Thanks.

My pc will recognize any cd or dvd that i put in it except blank dvds. why? it used to work and will work sometimes. i went as far as to install new os. still same result. any advice


You got a DVD writer? If you've got a DVD reader then a blank DVD is not something it can deal with. You can fix it by buying a DVD writer or DVD rewriter drive and replacing your DVD or CD drive.

Make sure the software for this DVD drive is installed into the PC and then your drive is connected to be detected and installed, This will also remove off all previous drives that might cause errors.

I have a DVD writer installed in my Compaq SR1230NX PC, but I can't figure out how to burn a DVD. When I pull up the options, it looks like I can only write CDs. I am not too good with PCs.


Unfortunately most all computers shipped with a DVD burner installed do not come with actual DVD burning software. XP Home nor any XP format come with them built in either. I can only suggest you buy a burning program such as Roxio Creator 2009 or the like.
I hope that helps.

Windows Media Center 2005


First check if you have a dvd-writer in your computer.
Then if you are in Media Center 2005 right-click the movie. There should be an option for making a cd/dvd. If not, then your dvd-writer is not installed (properly).
Please post some feedback

LG GSA-H62N WILL NOT INSTALL ON MY COMPUTER WITH VISTA HOME EDITION


Please check and let me know the exact model of your computer. If you have a door in front or on top you should see the exact model number. I want to make sure your system can handel a DVD writer. Are you replacing a cd with a DVD writer or adding a 2nd drive? On all compaqs the the new DVD drive needs to be set to CL(Cable Select ) on the back of the new DVD drive. Also make sure you have the right IDE cable and power.
