Burn your dvds in a proper way. If you burn your dvds as data dvd, it may not work on certain dvd players. Try different software or different PC to burn your dvds. Check the region code of your dvd player & the dvds burnt. They should match. You may find some region-free players.
no OS stated
no burn software stated (use imgburn (free it is)
the drive must be clean, (optics)
the media needs to be good, dvd-r (top brands best) others not.
OS not infected, with virus is this XP the virus magnet?
the burn-software needs to be top quality, imgburn is that.
ive never ever burned a coaster with imgburn , 100's of time, more really. been burning since the First DVD-r was sold, for sure.
no the things that chager or corrupting of the OS
or dirty optics in the DRIVE.
even dust, simple dust.
There are many reason for this.Try following steps to look out for solution.
1>Use better quality Dvd to burn .DVDs are just a few cents worth of plastic, manufactured in massive quantities. Sometimes you end up with a bad disk or a bad batch. Try a new disk, or a whole new brand, and you may have more luck burning your DVDs
2>Dust in your DVD burner can prevent it from burning DVDs correctly. Buy a lens cleaning disk and use it in your DVD burner drive. This can clean things up and give you a clean, successful burn.
3>For better quality burn at slow speed.It’s always tempting to burn DVDs at the highest speed possible. In theory, you’ll save time and can get more DVDs burned. In practice, though, higher speeds can result in unreliable burns.
Slow things down and set your DVDs to burn at 4x or even 2x. This may eliminate errors.
I hope this will solve your problem.
Hello, Some dvds have different dyes and as such some dvd rws wont recognise them, i had this problem with my new laptop and I only discovered it when i tried to burn back up discs. generally dvdr- are more suited for burning from your computer, you could try using differnt blank dvds AONE and RI-DISC are good discs, if you are unsure ask at your local pc shop ,if your in Glasgow Priceless computing offer good advice and carry a large selection of dvds, I would avoid the pound shop as the quality of their dvds is poor, should the problem persist take the dvdrw back to the shop where you bought it from, I hope that you are lucky. Have you tried using MAGIC DVD RIPPER ? this is a program that allows you to copy dvds to your hard drive in dvd quality and you can then burn them to disc using nero, you get a free trial of this program from magicdvdripper, its good if you rent a dvd and want to keep a copy, anyway please let me know how you get on.
check to see if you can playback dvd movies or any other dvd if not then the dvd lense has gone on the dvd drive in which case you will need to purchase a new one , if you can at least playback dvds then it may be that the laser lense in the drive needs a clean and you can get a disc cleaner to clean the lense ( they have very soft brushes underneath the disc so whilst the disc is spinning around it cleans the lense )
This may help - if not then it will be a case of getting a new dvd rw drive and seeing as blu ray is out it will be cheap enough to replace.
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
