You may not install the proper drivers of your burner, install it again and use some other burner application like nero cd burner etc.

You must place a cd in the writer to be able to burn a movie. Try inserting a dvd, or cd.

I have a Sony DVD DRU-820A burner. When I insert a dvd--either a blank one to burn or a DVD disc to view--the name of the drive switches from DVD-RAM Drive (D:) to CD Drive (D:). The burner no longer burns...


The device is _partially_ broken -- the part that reads/writes DVD media is "dead".

Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" unit.

My HP DVD 740 won't recognize blank CDs


Sounds like the lens is dirty. Run a cd cleaner through the drive. That should take care of it.

When i try to burn a cd in windows media player it ejects the cd


You are asking for help with a DVD but you say CD in the body of your question ... are you have the correct media in what ever device you are using?

Not all DVD burners can burn onto a CD. Some DVD are only capable of writing to specific types of DVD media as well ....

I hope this helps you.

Not recognizing disc in D drive


Hi, well the short answer is NO. You cannot use DVD's in a CD Writer at all. So the simple answer is to get some CD-R and copy the files to them. OR get a Combo DVD/CD writer and install that as well.. and then you can use both..

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE


When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
