Might be several reasons
Take a look on front panel if it says DVD-RW use only DVD-R (RW) blanks, +RW only +R(RW), +/- or RAM both. Check the record speed your blanks might have higher speed than allowed
Also blank might be upside down
Hope that helps
Good Luck

Recording/burning to disc


I searched your system and it shows a CD/DVD/RW.
So you can burn CD, DVD+R RW and DVD-R RW
So the most common DVD media would be the DVD+ media.
CD media would be all CD media. (info) RW: Re-Writable

How to burn a dvd from an acer laptop


The laptop should have come with CD/DVD burning software preloaded. Acer's specs page for your model says it comes with NTI Media Maker. The program will have help information available to guide you through, and you can find more help online. If you just want to write data files onto a DVD, the process typically is not much more than dragging files to a layout window and telling the program to burn the disc. This gives you a way to back up data, or to store movies in formats you can view on a computer (AVI, MPG, etc.).

On the other hand, if you're asking how to make a video DVD that will play in a regular DVD player like a commercial movie, maybe with features like menus or scene selection and such, the process for making that kind of DVD is more involved. You need some DVD authoring software. NTI may offer that capability, but I'll admit I have never looked.

In most cases, the software that comes preloaded on computers is a limited version of some commercial product. The computer manufacturers get paid to include the program, and the software company hopes you'll buy the full version when you discover the limitations. If you don't want to pay for software, there are free, more full-featured programs available for downloading.

For general CD and DVD burning, I use CDBurnerXP. To make video DVDs, I use a program called DVDStyler. Both are open-source, meaning they are 100% free to download and use, and they both offer a lot of features.

My computer recognizes my burner, but only as a CD drive and not re-writable. how do i get it to see it so i can burn data CDs


This is depending on wha tprogram you are using, not really on the computer.

You need to "tell" the program that disk is re-writable, and disk must-be re-writable, or computer will reject it. Re-writable disks are marked as such.

I would suggest searching google for "free cd/dvd burner" and you will have several thousand entries, as you did not provided me what is your operating system, I cannot advice what I would recommend.

On my windows system I am using few different burn programes, maybe one will suits you, this one is which I am using most often:

http://www.deepburner.com/

Of course you can go for example to this site and select whatever burning programe takes your fancy, I would suggest download several and then delete these which you do not like.

http://www.filehippo.com/

Again, you did not provided wha toperating system you are using and what burning program you use, feel free to ask further question on this topic if you require further help, but do provide "missing" data :-)

My CD/DVD burner isn't burning at the proper speed. I burned a disc that should have been 66:53, but it came out 66:38 (making the music a little bit fast). I did a burner test, with Exact Audio Copy and...


The speed is determined by the speed of the burner for the type of writable media (disk) you are using and the speed the writable media supports. (For example: I have CD-R disks from years ago that don't write as fast as the CD-R disks I purchased recently.)

The lowest of these two speeds is the max write speed.

Unfortunately, there is a ridiculously large number of disk writing standards which affect write speeds. Check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CD_recorder

If this helps please vote for my solution.

CD/DVD will not burn DVD


Did you tell CDBurnerXP that you want to burn a CD? or to burn a DVD?

Does this happen with _EVERY_ "blank" disk that you insert, or just one disk?

Can your DVD-RW _read_ a previously-recorded CD? DVD?
If not, then that hardware is suspect.

Burning printable cds


I believe it means one of two things:
1: After burning a writable disc, it is not recommended to leave it in writable mode. You should finalize it so it can play on other players.

2: It said that it doesn't recommend burning RE-writable CDs. They tend to be much less reliable than writable ones.

CD-R problem


If this is happening it's usually a sign that your drive is failing as it can no longer read the media type, but just double check, if you are using Nero that you havent got DVD highlighted in the start smart as the media to burn to.
