Re: redone windows xp.... now cant burn dvds
There are dozens of free perfect functioning burning software. the one that i use is Totally Free Burner 3: as the name says it's free, extremely small ( just 1 MB compared to 100MB for Nero), fast and very easy to use. get it from here http://www.softpedia.com/get/CD-DVD-Tools/Audio-CD-DVD-Burning/Totally-Free-Burner.shtml

Boy, have I been having a problem. I've tried two different dvd burners, an external TDK DVD+/- RW drive and now an internal NEC dual layer DVD+/-RW drive. I have a Dell Dimension 4500 that came with a Dell branded Windows XP Pro. Have you ever tried getting support from Dell? What a freaking bad joke that is.
Microsoft says there is known problem with XP viewing a DVD+/-RW disc the same way it views a CD+/-RW disc. Problem is a CD RW uses 32 bit packets and a DVD RW uses 16 bit packets. As a result, without the fix, my computer can't recognize there is a DVD RW disk in the drive when trying to burn to it. It recognized DVD +R and DVD-R discs just fine, and I am able to burn to those with no problem.
What I want to do is image my hard drive and burn the image to DVD. That I can't do, because it always comes up with "no disk" or some variation thereof anytime I try to write to an RW disc. Any suggestions? Has anyone else had this problem?
it could be upper and lower filters in registry and system files, use a removal tool called filtercheck 4.6 in CDR-zone.com (goto the forums and search for filtercheck) after you downoad, run it, click yes to all filters found to remove. close program.
reinstall your preferred burning app (1 prog installed at a time and test burn) this is to replace the filter entry that was corrupt
in the world the cd dvd creaters are using a new format of cd dvd making old players obsolite due to piracy these new cd dvds are becoming a pain a way they make you go out and purchase new players with updated formats
i found this out a few months ago when i bought a dvd from store it wouldnt work in a 7 month old dvd player so i got to thinking about it put in older cd that worked did a little investigating i want to know why new cd dvds werent working low and behold i found a tech site for the cd dvd compile build formats there it was piracy is getting knocked out by new cd dvd format this is so you cant copy direct to or from disks
if your older disks worked in drive and older disks burned in drive 9 out of 10 the problem lies with in new disks and what i explained up top
i hope this help you in your quest
I figured out what was causing the problem with my NEC 6500A on my Dell laptop: The Sony Picture Motion Browser software that I was using to burn DVD's is only compatible up to Service Pack 2 of Windows XP. The day after I installed Service Pack 3, the software stopped burning DVD's. So I uninstalled Service Pack 3, rebooted, unistalled the Sony PMB software, rebooted and re-installed the Sony PMB software and I can now burn DVD's again. So check whether the software you're burning your DVD's with is compatible with whatever version of your operating system you're operating with. Hope this helps someone else!
