    when you installed the burner did you run the installation disk at any point?

    What kind of burner is it?

    What operating system are you using?

    What kind of machine is this in?

Is this internal or external? If it is external try a different port (USB?). Now days most hardware is plug and play and Windows should find this on it's own. Did you get software with the new unit. If so install that. If not go to Add Hardware Wizard in Control Panel. This will force Windows to search for new devices. If it still won't find it you may have to go to the Mfg. website to download the software. Of course be sure all cables are connected properly. Also check the jumpers on the unit (Master, Slave, Cable Select). Also check in Device Manager to see if it shows up there. If you know how to get into BIOS, see if it is showing up in the BIOS. Also is it saying it can not find the CD burning software? Maybe that needs to be re-installed also. That is all I can think of right now.

Hi

The most likely cause of this issue is that the CD drive has gone faulty so will require you to replace the unit

Can't burn CD's anymore!


Have you tried replacing the CDrw drive? It sounds like the write mechanism in it is toast. You can find a replacement drive on ebay. Just put in your laptop's model and say something like "HP DV1000 cdrw drive". Or you can purchase an external drive that plugs into your usb ports on ebay or at www.tigerdirect.com

Burning printable cds


I believe it means one of two things:
1: After burning a writable disc, it is not recommended to leave it in writable mode. You should finalize it so it can play on other players.

2: It said that it doesn't recommend burning RE-writable CDs. They tend to be much less reliable than writable ones.
