I guess you have a Read-Only drive - ROM. You need a CD/DVD RW drive for burning.

I am unable to write cd with samsung 616e combo drive


Hi likeme2299
Unless you would succeed with other cd's from another manufacturer or updating the firmware , your drive is defective and is probably not worth reparing .

My drive wont read anything. I am trying to install MS office from a DVD. my device manager says it's working properly and I tried the Microsoft Fixit and that didn't work


Hi,

Device Manager states that it is working properly because it is detected by the computer. However, device manager has no capability of check if there's a problem with the lense of the DVD Drive. You can try a diffent CD to check if the problem is with the MS office CD or with the drive. If the DVD Drive still cant read any other disk it only means that it has a bad lense and you need to replace the DVD Drive.

Thanks for using Fixya.

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.

Samsung dvd-rom 616E won't play sounds


I decided to check to see which video player programs were already on my computer. I have a Dell, so there were several that came preinstalled.
Did I mention that Windows Update had installed several new fixes recently?
My toolbar no longer worked like it did last week, that was a clue.
2 of my programs were no longer in the programs list, Interplayer and Power DVD were missing.
I went to the Power DVD site and downloaded the latest update.
Now my DVD player works fine.
I don't know why RealPlayer or Media Player didn't work, even with the updates.
I don't care, as long as something works.
I could have tried Winamp too but Power DVD worked and I didn't try anything else after that.
It doesn't have to be a problem with the hardware, but could be the software.

Try to burn a cd


Hi, make sure that you have the right type of CD or DVD in the burner. From what you have written about what you drive is it is a "_" not a "+". It actually makes a difference. You may have acidently bought the wrong type for your burner and this will bring up that error.

Check your CD's and give that a go.

Unable to read some of the DVDs......


It's possible that the drive has died. CD and DVD drives are notorious for short lives but then I've seen some last 5 years. The lens could be dirty, just a small piece of lint is enough to cause hassles. Try using a Lens cleaner, available from all good audio shops. Some machines don't like +R disks and a firmware upgrade is needed. I've done many Liteon Drives with terrific results but if the manufacturer hasn't put one out then you're lost. It's possible you've used the wrong upgrade to fix your problem. With the prices of drives today it's sometimes cheaper to replace it. Believe me they can die quickly, my record is a week from brand new to unuseable and that was a Sony. BMW
