SOURCE: Cannot back up DVDs on LG Super Multi 20x DVD rewriter

You definitely should call LG--your new gaget isn't working, and it is under warranty. Or try going to their website to see if they have any software upgrades--sounds like you have a bummer, and perhaps a reinstall from their website will do the trick.

SOURCE: cd not working on my sony dvd+-rw DW-Q58A

I too have the same problem. I've read many of the options and uninstalled drive etc but no success. The DVDs play perfectly, but put in a cd and its bump n grind and nothing happens.

Wondering .... I use the Russian MP3 music sites and burn mp3's to cd, could Sony have a DRM programme that shuts down their drives if you buy from such sites?

Ok Im clutching at straws

SOURCE: I have a Sony CRX320E CD/DVD unable to write a DVD

CD-RW drives can only read all CD-rom and CD-RW formats and read DVD formats but cannot write to a DVD, if you want to write a DVDs you need to buy a DVD-RW burner which can burn all CD-formats

SOURCE: Sony DVD+/-RW |DW-Q30A will not record cd or dvd & only play dvds

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD , or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

Sony dvd+rw dw d56a plays cd's. doesn't see dvd's at all. I hear the disc spinning. Doesn't see it. control panel - double clicked on drive - nothing


It is possible that there could be some garbage in the processor do to a small power surge and if you unplug the unit from the wall for 40Min., it will reset back to normal.

Hi, I have SONY DVD/CD rewritable drive unit, Model No. DW-Q28A. CD or VCD working but DVD not able to work .


The drive is compatible with the following DVD Disc:

WRITE SpeedDVD+R DVD+RW DVD-R DVD-RWDVD+R DL

DVD-R DL

If you are unable to burn using those disc then the burner is defective.

If you want to watch a dvd then you would need to purchase or download a program to watch the DVD movies.

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.

DVD+-RW plays DVD video without sound


if you did not install the wires to the motherboard ( a small set of wires- I think it's 4-pin) it will not play the sound- ( that's if it requires that wire)
you can also uninstall it in device manager, restart and let windows re-install it again because software may have overwritten some important files-

finally the software that plays the dvd may be buggy in that it mutes the sound- check the toggle (it may be on mute on the screen) I always uninstall it and use interactual dvd player that comes with universal dvd's ( like the Bourne moveis next to me right now)

for stand alone software- I prefer Nero as Roxio overwrites everything- Nero is friendly- playing dvd's , burning etc...

Hope it works for you

U can use nero, first of all you must format de DVD-RW, so that it can be be rewritable. Then use it like a normar DVD-R disk. And every time you want to rewrite the DVD only make a quickformat and put your things on the DVD.
