It sounds like the DVD burner does not have a "write strategy" for the type of disc you are using. This results in the burner and the software having an endless argument about how to go about the burn!
You can either use another brand of disc more compatible with your burner or go to the DVD burner's manufacturer's website and check for "Firmware" updates.
The firmware is the software within the drive that establishes the write strategy for each type of disc and these are often updated.
If you do update the firmware then be sure to read the instructions on the manufacturers website carefully and follow them EXACTLY.

    I can't "see" your computer so I don't know! :)
    If it is a normal pc then you should be able to see the front of the burner and the brand. There may be a model number too.

    If the burner is internal as in a notebook computer or unbranded go to the Start menu then to My Computer - right click on the DVD device and select Properties then select Hardware. There should be info on the make, model and possibly the firmware version there.

DVD Burning


Well first of all, as far as have been informed, making backup copies of dvds is illegal. But im not here to critisize you. Your discs that you are copying the movie onto might not be big enough to hold the file. And your laser in your computer might not also be up to the challenge. There should not be any problems with any discs, but you may want to try using standard dvds, not rewritable dvds.

Hope this helps :)

A DVD CD burner came installed in my Emachine computer purchased Nov 2007 and runs Vista Just want simple instructions on how to use the burner. Thanks


To burn files onto a disc, all you need to do is drag and drop files onto your drive under My Computer. When you have put all the files there, put the disc you want to burn in there, go to My Computer, double click the drive, then go to File/Burn these files to my disc. If you wish to burn music/video CDs or DVDs I would suggest using more of a full fledged burning suite such as Nero.

You might be able open the software you are using to try to burn the DVD and manually set the speed of the DVD burner so it matches the speed of the DVD.  
If you need help with this, I will need the name of the software and the brand and speed of the DVD you are using.

Cannot backup files to a cd/dvd


we may need more details but you can try this for now

1. are you sure you have a cd writer or a dvd writer (writer = burner)--- check the front edge of your cd/dvd unit and look for words like "writer" "burner" or writeable next to the word dvd or compact disc... keep in mind not all cd/dvd writer can write (burn) cd or dvds, some may burn cd but not dvds.

2. is your cd/dvd unit compatible with the media (cd or dvd blank disk) you are trying to use.. depending your cd/dvd especifications your dvd/cd drive is compatible with certain types of cd or dvds that are writeable.

3. is the cd/dvd a writeable cd/dvd and is compatible with your cd/dvd drive? for instance.. if you are using a blank dvd and your cd/dvd drive only burn cd/s and read dvd and cd you won't be able to write to the blank dvd.

4. are you trying to burn a dvd in a corporate computer.?? as a user (not an administrator) of your corporate computer you may not have priviledges that will allow them to burn dvd/cd's even you your drive and your media are compatible.

please post
the error that you get
the brand and model of the computer you're using
the type of media you're using
