    Please specify the software you are using to write the DVD. Also make sure you use a clean and unscratched DVD for writing.

Sir, my lenovo 3000Y500 laptop can't read dvds


Try reseating the DVD drive to make sure it is properly connected.
Next reinstall the DVD driver.
Check the BIOS to see if it detects the DVD drive.
If none of these work the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Compact Disc rewritable DVD player won't load or play


Check the data connector on the rear of the drive. If this doesn't work you may need a new drive, they are cheap and readily available.

I have this cd-r by memorex that already has downloaded songs but i want to erase them and put new ones ...please explain how to do this...


You cant.

A CD-R (Compact Disc-Recordable) is a variation of the Compact Disc invented by Philips and Sony. CD-R is a Write Once Read Many (WORM) optical medium, though the whole disk does not have to be entirely written in the same session.
CD-R retains a high level of compatibility with standard CD readers, unlike CD-RW - which can be re-written, but is not capable of playing on many readers, and also uses more expensive media..

If you want to be able to use the disc many times, you need to buy CD-RW discs

How to restor factory o.s. on my lenovo 3000y500 laptop


You will have to have the factory OS restore disc or a recovery partition from the factory on your hard drive. If you have a recovery partition then you should be able to find it when the computer POSTs at boot - it may give you several options and one them being Recovery. Don't mess with your Setup unless you know what you're doing. Another possible way is by tapping F8 while your computer is booting up. It will go to a black screen with white text. You'll see several options: Safe Mode, LastKnownGoodConfiguration, and so on. Look for a line that suggests Recovery or possibly Utilities. If you can't find it by either of those ways, then you can usually contact the maker and ask for a Recovery Disc. They will want your model info. This usually costs under $50. If yo have a disc then just put it in, reboot the computer, press the indicated button for Boot Menu, Choose CD\DVD, and then press Enter. Follow the prompts from there to reinstall your OS.

Unable to burn movie to DVD/CD


You can't burn a DVD movie using a COMBO drive or Compact disc rewriter, change your movie format from DVD to VCD and then try again, I recommend you use nero to make/edit movie and ImgBurn to make ISO image and burn it onto disc.

Won't record record to CD-RW


First make sure your cdrw disc is blank. If it is blank try another good known cdrw brand disc and burn it in 12x speed for a good burn.

If it still fail check the software side of your cd rewriter first and lastly the cd rewriter unit.
