First try to determine if it is a hardware or software problem by RESTORING you computer to a time before the problem stated.   Next purchase a cd headcleaner kit . Reasonably priced at most discount stores, and clean the heads ,if it is a hardware problem.  Next open the computer and see if all electricial conections are secure. After that , replace the drive.

Received a error message "This software can only


This may sound stupid but make sure it is plugged in. Check the operating system and hardware requirements, if they don't meet the requirements, software will not recognize the device. Try different usb ports because sometimes computers have selective hearing and make sure your computer is initially recognizing the device when it is plugged in. If all else fails, don't try to install the software and head over to computer/my computer in the start menu. Right click and select properties. Click device manager in the hardware section or the bar to the left and look in the cd drive section. If you see your drive, right click and try any option about installing.

DVD-RW burn drive is being recognized as CD-rom drive; it's not the laser, because I went through the trouble of purchasing a brand new DVD burner drive and it's doing the same exact thing. Can anybody...


Hello,

If you have not done so, under device manager, remove the dvd rom (cd-rom) from the hardware list, Use the CD install disk that come with your DVD-ROM, install the drivers and software, then reboot your pc and let it install the new hardware detected. This should get you going.

Good Luck

Recognizes DVD but doesn't recognize CD or CD-RW


Need more info about your problem to answer the question. What does "recognize" mean. Will it play a DVD or recognize a recordable, blank DVD? When you say "recognize" what software is recognizing, the OS or a burner software like Nero?

Trying to burn some files to a memorex cd-rw. no computer will recognize that a cd is in the cd drive, even though one is in there. might be a formatting issue, but can't get any software to recognize cd,...


You might want to try the nero lite software. Most of these so called softwares do not reconize some burners. There is a site that tells you these problems. Try to google your (lets say hp cd) and then say EX: hp cd drive (try to use a model)..+not recognizing my burner, don't use spaces in the query.
Nero is a good burning software that enables most burners to be recognized.
If you have had Roxio .. this software is not very friendly to some of the burners out there. If you have this software get rid of it, uless you have the original disk or it come with oem on the restore disc.
PS Use Nero Lite it works the berries!

CD Burner on Gateway Laptop


Sounds like the CD burner has gone out. First try doing a hardware search to see if it finds snd recognizes the CD burner. If not it will need to be replaced. Keep in mind that the drive may still read CD's fine without the ability to burn them.

Windows XP not recognizing cds/dvds in my HP DVD640i


Most likely your CD-DVD burning software is corrupted. When that happens, the machine doesn't recognize the existence of the CD/DVD hardware. Clean up your machine, defrag, run a freeware registry cleaer-defragmenter (see C-net for a good one). Then Reinstall/upgrade your burning software (the Windows XP software is not sufficient) either from HP/Compaq, if it came with your machine, or the program website if you purchased it separately. You may find out which it is by using a marvelous freeware program called Belarc advisor.
