    when I place a blank in, I can feel a vibrating from the burner and then I get a promt on the screen to place a blank writable disc in..I know the blanks are good because my other laptop accepts the blank...It just stopped mid stream burning several copies...

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.

Trouble burning DVDs on Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K16D


Problem copying usually means that the DVD is encrypted so therefore you cannot copy it without illegal decryption

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?

DVD unit doesn't read CDs but works fine with DVDs


Sir: Did you try another CD or just 1 CD could not read by your DVD RW? Would you please make the DVD poped out and re-set it again. It seems the problem of communication becasue the code rate of DVD and CD is different. Its not related with the lens.
