If it is a cd-rw, as you've indicated above, it will not burn DVD's. The front of the burner will list what it can burn. For instance, my machine says DVD-+RW, which means that it can burn to both + and - DVD's, but it cannot do Dual-Layer (DL) DVD.
Hello Rfd832, What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs) If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)
You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive
Imy burner will burn if I go into MY COMPUTER than into MY E drive but the auto burn will not work. I do have 1dvd click and ashampoo on the computer as well, but when I put a disc into the computer it will not automtically work. I was wondering if the above programs are stopping the auto play on it or what? The burner works fine if I go to the E drive and install o burn it that way, is there some kind of a setting or something that went out of wack??
You often get this with no brand or unknow brand dvds, also some DVD writer can develope a probem either with DVD-r or DVD+r, even if it is supposed to be dvd + - rw . Try using good brand DVD -R. when you find a brand that is fine use only that one. I am sorry about wasting the 100 dvds pack give them away as a present or selll on ebay, after having same problems a couple of times, on my home DVD RW I use only TDK, Philips, Verbatim or Sony DVDs.
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.
