Question about Plextor PX-708UF DVD±RW Burner

1 Answer

DVD player won't read most DVDs

The light just blinks and blinks and nothing else happens when I insert most DVDs. It reads CDs fine, and I think it still burns...it's been a while since I have tried...but it seems to be very intolerant of little scratches/imperfections on DVDs...which is very frustrating...even the cheapest DVD player can tolerate little scratches...but not this Plextor burner!

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds


It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

My Compaq Presario desktop will not burn CDs


Hi,
Perform a system restore and take the computer back to a time before the problems started with burning, or you can download a different media player and try burning with that, real player as a good bit of software to use for burning and Nero is too (Nero is a devoted burning suite)

Get real player here >>>>>>

Get Nero 9 here >>>>>>

Toshiba satellite a65-s1762 dvd-ram drive problems


Take the laptop *and* your DVDs/CDs to a qualified technician.
It seems like the drive is "intermittently" failing, and needs to be replaced.

My lg GSA-H55N dvd writer is not playing Cds but plays Dvds fine


your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution
thankyou

DISK DRIVE


This would generally happen if the lens is dirty. You get special lens cleaning disks, however, you must read the user's manual before using any such disk. Some brands don't recommend the use of lens cleaning disks.
