The issue is more likeley to be that your not converting the file to something that can be read by other players or that the disks are cheapies and just dont cut it, i got some like that when i tried to go cheap on the brand.

other issue is that it may not be finalizig the CD or your windows has the copy protect in the settings turned on and its burning so that only your computer can read it.

Check all these and get back to us,

I have just purchased an HP Desktop computer and when I burn a Cd for music, everyting seems to work ok but when I try to play that CD on another player in my home, it won't play. Is there a setting...


Check the type of the blank CD/DVD you are using. Certain players won't be able to play CD-RW for instance.

If that doesn't solve the problem you might try to slow down your burn speed for a better quality CD/DVD. Sometimes a faster burn speed will lower the quality and other devices can have trouble reading these.

CDS BURN BUT CANNOT PLAY WHY?


You mean, you burn the CD in your PC but you can't play it in external CD player ?
Maybe you didn't burned it in "movie" mode, just burned in "data" mode. As you know, CD player can't play .avi or .mkv or other video formats. They only can play movie in .DAT format, and when you burn in "make a movie" mode, the burner will convert your movie to this format so you can re-open your movie via CD player.
Or there is an error during the burning time, if this happen then you have to re-burn your movie into another CD.

Hope this help and be kind to rate this answer.

I have an external teac dv-28e-n usb DVD writer device which does not recognise and burn DVD rewritablce discs.


I think that Teac DV-28e Is a CD/DVD-ROM only, and will not burn discs. Teac DW-28e is a CD RW/ DVD ROM unit, and will thus play and burn CDs, but will only play DVDs. Check your model numbers to confirm, and then consider exchanging units if you need to burn CDs.

Cannot burn to ts h492a with dvd-r then play on


Hi, It seems that you are not going through the right procedure of burning DVD movies. The first step before burning is to convert the movie file format to DVD format. I recommend "Format Factory" to convert as it is an open source free software and works wonderful. Once the conversion is over, you can now go ahead and burn it with good DVD burning software Burn4free.
Cheers!

My lap top already has a dvd burner that is playing up, I've bought a second hand dvd burner without an installation cd, how can I still activate the external burner?


You can still use and activate your external burner. Most external DVD burner drive is USB right? So you just plug in the usb plug of your burner in your laptop and it will automatically detected by the system and install the neccessary driver for it to work properly. If you do have an existing burner software in your laptop then you can also use it for burning DVD's and CD's to your external burner but if you don't have any, then install a burning software like NERO or any. Hope this could help you. Please don't forget to rate me..:-) Thanks..

DVD burner doesn't reconize burned music cd's only shows them as blank disc


Have you tried to play burned music disc with other laptop? if it was able to play there then i suspected your dvd-rom drive is faulty.

To confirm, try playing different cds from your machine and check if it was able to read it.

I have a samsung external dvd writer model se-s204 and i've been unable to make dvd's yhat play on all devices-ie: playstaion, dvd players, my own laptop. any help in this matter would be greatly...


To make a dvd cd that will play in most players beit dvd or cd the best thing to use is nero. It won't be the cd burner itself it will be the program you are useing to burn it with. Try nero but just remember that not all dvd, cd players will play burnt discs.

Burn DVD


Read on your optical drive. If it burns CD's it reads CD-RW. In order to burn DVD's it needs ro read DVD-RW. If it reads DVD-ROM it will only read DVD's not burn them.

A good external burner is Plextor. You can get one at Walmart, or you can check Ebay and find an internal to replace the one in your machine. They are fairly easy to replace, and you won't have a bulky external to carry around.
