    I have the same issue. I've burned about 90 disks with it and all of a sudden it will not even recognize a blank disc. It only recognizes some discs I've bought. I don't know if there is a way to get a replacement burner for the unit.

I've got the same problem. Just got back from the repair shop and he said the lens needs to be replaced. Mine is worn out because I've burned so many discs.

    The lens thing kinda didn't make sense as it did recognize disc's I'd burn't and bought music CD's. It's only new blank Disc's that it is not recognising. I get " NO DISC" And a few times I got the option to remort the disc and that tried forever and then stoped and said no disc!



    I phoned RCA 1-800-506-5746 to find out where I can get replacement parts. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

    They won't sell them to me or a repair shop.



    The guy I talked to felt I have a software problem and they can fix it for $130.00 if I send it to them.

How do I eject the Dvd


Press the eject button on the top right-hand of the keyboard. Be patient if the disc does not pop out immediately. Try pressing the button a few times or waiting a few seconds and then press the button again. If it doesn't eject, tilt the computer with the disc drive facing down and shake it gently as you press eject.[1]
2
Drag the disc icon into the trash. If the eject button isn't working, locate the disc icon on your computer's Desktop and drag it to the trash can. The trash can is located on the far right end of the Application Dock on the bottom of the computer screen.

3
Press and hold "Command" while simultaneously pressing "E."

4
Find the disc in the Finder. Open the Finder, located on the bottom left of the applications dock. Look on the left-hand side of the pop-up window under "Devices" for the name of the disc in your drive. Locate the eject button directly to the right of the disc name and click on it.
5
Eject the disc through an application if it is not in the Finder. In iTunes or DVD Player, click on the "Controls" drop-down menu located on the top toolbar and click "Eject Disc." You can also open iTunes and click on "Playlists" so that the left side bar pops up. Look for the CD icon with the appropriate name. Click the eject button directly to the left of the CD name.

Exercise the warranty, and get a replacement.

Cant make a back up of my dvd's for the kids to use. with shrink and decripter. when i do now it says, when i play it, it says no menu.


Step 1
Be sure to erase all data on the disc, if media is rewriteable, by going up to the "Recorder" drop-down menu and clicking "Erase Rewriteable Disc." A box will pop up on which you need to choose the correct recorder from the top menu, quick or full erase (best option), and a maximum erase speed is fine.
Step 2
Choose your recorder drive on the top right drop-down menu on the main screen. The drive icon next to this menu allows you to set advanced options. (Not needed here.)
Step 3
Click on the "Burn" icon in the middle of the main toolbar. This opens up the "Burn Compilation" box.
Step 4
Click on the "Multi-session" tab on the "Burn Compilation" box. Choose "Start Multi-session disc", if the disc is to be added to later. Choose "No Multi-session disc," if the disc is to be completed with the current burn. The other options are good at the default settings.
Step 5
Click on the "Label" tab on the "Burn Compilation" box to give the disc a title that will be seen in the drives list, such as Windows Explorer, when the disc is loaded. Choose "Automatic Disc name" and enter the desired name without spaces. For spaces, add underscores (shift+hyphen).
Step 6
Click on the "Burn" tab on the "Burn Compilation" box to set desired burn and writing actions. "Determine maximum speed" lets Nero determine the recorder and disc speeds, if they are unknown. "Simulation" performs a test virtual test burn to see if all goes well. "Write," of course, burns the disc. "Finalize disc" means that the disc will be burned, so that no more can be burned on it. (For the example, check the boxes for "Write" and "Finalize disc," which is probably already checked.)
Step 7
Set "Writing speed," if known, "Writing method" as "Disc-at-once" and "Number of copies".
Step 8
Click the "Burn" button at the bottom on the "Burn Compilation" box to begin the actual burning process and the "Writing to disc" window will open.
Step 9
Check the "Verify written data" box on the bottom left of the "Writing to disc" window. This will have Nero read the disc, after it is done burning, to verify that all of the data has been properly burned to the disc. This is an important optional step, especially with really important data. If all goes well, a box will pop up stating that "Data verification completed successfully."
Step 10
Run the disc in a drive or DVD player to make sure it runs correctly. If it does, the original files on the hard drive may be deleted, if desired.

My Craig MP4 Player Will Not Download Songs


Hi,

If you are referring to "...the disc for downloading will not fit into my computer drive...", as to mean that the installer CD is physically small, it should normally work with most of todays CD ROM. If for some reason it will not fit, then you can borrow an external CD ROM with USB attachments.

Alternately, you can download and install in your PC. However, to my knowledge, the driver (whether downloaded or CD) is only required if you are using Windows 98.

If what you mean is that your hard drive is so full that no additional programs/software can be installed, then an additional HD (internal or external) should work out.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
