    I must agree with ashare. A CD holds 700 MegaBytes, a DVD holds 4.7 GigaBytes (In simple math terms, 1000 MegaBytes makes 1 GigaByte) You can store SO much more information on a DVD than you can a CD and the cost and proceedure to install these items is more or less the same. A DVD burner will give you more bang for your buck!

    Please rethink on your idea to buy a new CD burner because a DVD burner doesn't cost you much these days. You can buy a DVD burner which will also serve the purpose of playing DVD apart from burning pictures. I will help you to install it once you decide on what to buy.

Find your CD/DVD writer from any computer shop and; install the software that come with the hardware after proper installation of the hardware using the manual. then you will be able to write to your media medium (cd/dvd).

This item plays cd & burns cd, but does not play DVD.

Either this device is not DVD burner or you do not have installed on your computer the software to play DVDs. Possible also that device is not installed correctly or the drivers are not the correct ones.

How can I burn pictures onto a DVD, so ot can be

If you have a DVD burner you can use the burning software that came with the unit. Maybe "Sonic" or "Nero".
Start the burning software and drag add drop your pictures into the "burn window".

Check your DVD front door to see if it says DVD Writer or DVD ROM.
If it says ROM, then it is not a burner.

Best DVD or CD discs is Verbatim brand (OfficeMAX, best price).

I cant get movies I made on msn movie maker to download on to the light scribe cd. Also the pictures cd's wont play on an independent machine, only on the computer.

Maybe you'll need a cd/dvd burner like Nero 9 or maybe the Nero 7 would do...
that's the best application for burning movies you make... and slide show pictures...
be also aware of the formats you used in saving your work in msn movie maker.... use (.avi) in save as type:

i hoped it helped you tnx...

Moving music to CD

you might be able to use cdex to convert to an mp3 or other format

If not you will need to find some free software to convert midi to an mp3 or other format that can be converted by cd burner software to a disc format

If not then this

And you can use cd burner xp to burn ( you will need to download and install dot net framework to use cd burner )

If you want something easier and free there is deepburner

If you need further help post back and if this resolves your issue rate it as a fix please

Pc wont play cd or dvd

On many CD-Roms, or burners, there is a plug on the back that is for Digital Audio. It is a rectangular shaped plug. Some PC's require that a cable is attached from the back of the burner, to either the on-board audio (on the motherboard), or to the sound card that may be installed. If you have any further questions, just let me know :)
