Unable to burn from Z:\ Drive

I have a DVD Burner from LITEON that I'm currently using on a Windows XP Platform. If I repath my DVD burner to work from the drive letter "Z:\", system users (with no admin privileges) are unable to burn DVDs in common apps like NERO. However, system (local and domain) administrators are able to burn to the drive. The problem is that users cannot recognize the burner from NERO's burning wizard. Typically (like for the administrators), the drive is selected from a drop-down menu. This is not the case for system users. Anybody have any clues as to what permissions get knocked out that prevent the user from being able to burn to the drive in common applications? Thank you so much for your help!

I would start by going into my computer, right click on your burner, select properties then the recording tab and uncheck the box "enable CD recording on this device". Windows burning software causes havoc with other recording programs.

Some CD burners are either "+" or "-" or both "+ -".

That said you will have to check what type of burner you have. Example, you cannot stick a "+" blank cd into a "-" burner, and visa versa.

However, if your cd burner can read and burn both types, you should be okay.

Can't get new DVD RW to work

Go to the Manufacturer's site of the burner and look for firmware, download and install -and to make sure it (the burner) is compatible with you operating system vista or XP
You should have received a disc with the burner it, even if you are going to use some other burner program.
If you can't find what you need, write again with the name and model of burner and the operating system you are using.
Hope this helps... Please leave rating...

Dvd burner not working

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.

Sony DVD-RW DW-D56A drive playing up

I am not posting a solution, but may be the same problem.
I have dell inspiron 510m with DVD - RW sony A 56
It had burnt one DVD till now, but it can NOT burn any more DVDs.
I have tried burning using windows XP-SP2, Nero 6, Nero 8, burn my files 3.01 BUT no use. The only thing I got is different error messages.
I changed many types of DVD-Rom, from sony, benq..trying to rule out the storge media itself as source of error, but again no use.
Astonishingly, it works a CD-ROM Burner very well.
Any suggestions?

Unable to burn using a LG GSA H58N DVD burner

With the built in drivers for windows XP it can identify and use DVD-RW facilities of DVD burner. However depending on your bios your machine can fail to burn DVDs if your bios can not recognise that output.

While loading the CD that comes with the DVD-RW did you get an error message if yes then it means you BIOS is failing to recognise your DVD-RW as an output method try to update the BIOS. But before you do that if you can try adding the drive on a modern (after 2002) machine with xp and see if it can burn DVDs there without adding any drivers.

if it fails on that other machine then you can be sure its not your BIOS but a problem with drive (which I suspect most actually). But if it works then then you need to update your machine bios.
