Hi, can you check in Windows Media Player what devices you have installed. Tools/Option/Devices. Highlight your CD R and click on Properties.Click on Recording Tab. Make sure there is a check in Enable CD Recording on this drive. Hope this works for you. Pls post again how things turns up. Cheers.

I can play cds in windows media player but i cannot burn to cd it comes up with error message C00D119F , how can i repair this

You need to be sure that your cd drive is also a cd burner. If it is then the problem might be fixed by any of the following: 1. Clean your disk that you are writing to or try a different one. 2. Use a cleaning CD to clean your drive. 3. Close any other programs that might be using your drive, song, or windows media player. 4. Restart Windows Media Player. 5. Restart your computer. 6. Try a different brand of cd to write to. 7. Choose a slower writing speed. Please rate my post if it was helpful! Best of luck to you.

How to burn a dvd from an acer laptop

The laptop should have come with CD/DVD burning software preloaded. Acer's specs page for your model says it comes with NTI Media Maker. The program will have help information available to guide you through, and you can find more help online. If you just want to write data files onto a DVD, the process typically is not much more than dragging files to a layout window and telling the program to burn the disc. This gives you a way to back up data, or to store movies in formats you can view on a computer (AVI, MPG, etc.).

On the other hand, if you're asking how to make a video DVD that will play in a regular DVD player like a commercial movie, maybe with features like menus or scene selection and such, the process for making that kind of DVD is more involved. You need some DVD authoring software. NTI may offer that capability, but I'll admit I have never looked.

In most cases, the software that comes preloaded on computers is a limited version of some commercial product. The computer manufacturers get paid to include the program, and the software company hopes you'll buy the full version when you discover the limitations. If you don't want to pay for software, there are free, more full-featured programs available for downloading.

For general CD and DVD burning, I use CDBurnerXP. To make video DVDs, I use a program called DVDStyler. Both are open-source, meaning they are 100% free to download and use, and they both offer a lot of features.

I am having a problem with my hp cd/dvd burner drive. when I go into wmp and try to burn something it tells me to connect a burner and restart the player, please help

What version of Windows Media Player are you currently using? If it is not up-to-date, try updating Windows and Windows Media Player. Then attempt to create the CD.

If that doesn't work, try updating the driver for your CD-ROM drive. Navigate to HP's Support Site, type in your machine model and search fot the CD drivers there. Update the necessary drivers and attempt to create the CD once more.

I hope I was able to help. Good luck!

My Compaq Presario desktop will not burn CDs

Perform a system restore and take the computer back to a time before the problems started with burning, or you can download a different media player and try burning with that, real player as a good bit of software to use for burning and Nero is too (Nero is a devoted burning suite)

Get real player here >>>>>>

Get Nero 9 here >>>>>>

Good luck

Media player says that it cant find the burner

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

It can be CD-blank media problem. Try another brand or if you use CD-RW try to use CD+RW.
Also try to use simulation mode. If it works fine it can be CD-blank media problem.
