If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.

Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:

Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...

    Thank you for the reply.



    The software is fairly easy to use.



    If you need startup help with it, just e-mail me.



    Leave most of the default settings as they are and you won't have any trouble.



    You have to get used to the directory tree file structure and you can drag & drop files, multiple files (using either the Shift Key and the Ctrl key to tag files)....



    Once the files are highlighted, move them to the lower window and then be sure you have the right burner drive selected....

    The MOST important is to SLOW DOWN the Burn speed....(Max 4X for CD's and Max 2X for DVDs) because the variance between drives and DVD players differ.



    All you have to do is to select Action...Burn Compilation....to a Compact Disc (at this point you can also create an ISO file as a disc image)....

    When using CD / DVD for data discs, look carefully at the icons....the CD/DVD have a split line allowing you to select either CD or DVD....

    Pay close attention to the bottom status line when dragging files....the color bar warns you when the target disc will be full because it cahnges colors....

    For CD....max 700 MB ( I usually stop at 675) for DVD...4.7 (I stop at 4.4)....

    There are other capabilities but I don't typically use anything other than ISO's are data discs...

    The Read Disc icon is to convert the CD or DVD to a disc image....you have to select a folder where you can always find it...I created my own called "My DVDs"....and I copy my DVDs from my videocam to that folder....

    If you get some of the other options to work successfully, let me know please...

    Maybe I will get time one day to experiment.





    You can take non-copyright material from a DVD or CD and also make a Disk Image (.ISO file).



    You can also write a Disc Image back to the CD / DVD disc.



    Be sure to check your drive for the format type...(DVD+R, DVD-R, CD-R, etc) to know it's full potential....

My cd dvd-rom can't read cd's or burn cd's


If it is working correctly, it should read both CD and DVD disks.

If you have a "combo" drive (DVD-reader and CD reader/writer), it should burn CD disks.

If it is not working correctly, spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

Unable to burn dvd using LG DVD ROM


your DVD Rom drive cannot burn DVDs because it is not a DVD burner, DVD Rom drives are different from DVD writers, if you want to burn DVD you must buy a DVD burner/writer.

    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..
