How do you burn dvds on a dell intel pentium vostro 220?


First you have to have a DVD burner installed, and it looks like your vostro 220 only comes with a reader. Then of course you have to have DVD burning software, like Nero or Sonic recorder.

Cant get my acer to burn dvds it doesnt reconise the blank disk


Ok, Here the issue, A lot DVD media are out side not good. To use your burner try to install original software came with it(Poss.NERO)
If you can't try to use older version, Vista is not working for most burners. You need XP. ALso look for dvd43 and install it. You need this.
You may also need some codecs that works with burners, Media as Taiyo Yuden suggested. check smartmediacom for more informations.Specially media troubles section.

Dvd burner plays dvd's and cd's fine, will burn cd's but will not burn dvd's


Unless you have one of the very latest laptops, your model laptop most likely has a DVD ROM combo drive - which allows you to play DVDs and CDs also burn CDs/
You need to give me the make and model number of your laptop for me to verify if your laptop is capable of burn DVDs.

EXTENSA 4420 DVD-RW WON'T BURN DVDS


This could be a glitch with your burning software. Try removing and reinstalling it, or using a different software. The other possibility is the drive, occassionally with a CD/DVD combo drive the DVD reader or burner will fail, leaving the CD end working.

Burn DVD


Read on your optical drive. If it burns CD's it reads CD-RW. In order to burn DVD's it needs ro read DVD-RW. If it reads DVD-ROM it will only read DVD's not burn them.

A good external burner is Plextor. You can get one at Walmart, or you can check Ebay and find an internal to replace the one in your machine. They are fairly easy to replace, and you won't have a bulky external to carry around.

Drive Can't Burn DVDs


Depends on your burning software and drivers installed for it. I have seen windows not detect some DVD burners correctly.

DVD / CD - RW Combo


When you say you cannot burn DVD's, do you mean you cannot burn DVD movies or do you mean you cannot burn data files to a DVD?

Burning DVD movies requires specific software to transcode the video and create a directory structure that DVD's players expect.

When you try to burn DVD's does it produce an error? What software are you using to burn?

Hello


Assuming you have a dvd burner, do you have dvd decoder software or dvd burning software installed? Does it read burned dvds? Are you sure it's a dvd burner? If so, make sure the blank dvds you are using are the proper format ie; dvd+/-rw, etc. Good luck
