You need to download and install an application that burns (copies) data, video or audio onto DVD's. Such as Nero burning software, roxio etc. You can also use Windows Media player to burn audio onto cd's

Will an optical drive from cq62 fit mine?


NO.

I sort of see your reasoning, but NO.
HP Compaq DC7700 Ultra-Slim Desktop PC, and Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC DVD burner drive?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-For-Compaq-Presario-CQ62-TS-L633-SATA-CD-RW-DVD-RW-Multi-Burner-Laptop-Drive-/300725349252?pt=US_CD_DVD_Blu_Ray_Drives&hash=item4604a0ab84

Until I compared both units I would have stated NO.

Now that I have THANK YOU. I just learned something,

http://www.amazon.com/HP-Compaq-DC7700-DC7800-DVD-ROM/dp/B004574PEG

Referring back to the photo view, of the Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC's DVD burner drive shown, the REAR view shows the connectors for the SATA power cable, and SATA data cable.

The connectors use the same L-shape design, and size that a SATA unit for a desktop computer, would use.

Case design looks to be similar also.

I believe you are Correct.

HOW DO I INSTALL A DVD BURNER IN A EMACHINE W3118 THERE IS A METAL THING BLOCKING THE RAIL.


You need to either unscrew it, or bend it out of the way, usually you just bend it back and forward a few times and it snaps out

I don't seem to be able to format er-rw cds help


Do you have dla installed? (Drive Letter Access). It was a long time ago that I last used RW disks but I seem to remember having to install a DLA driver to allow me to format or directly save / copy / delete files on the CD / DVD.

My burner does not recognise disk for burning


some burners can only use certain formats for burning to. For example, CD Burners may only be able to use CDRs, and not CDRW (RW is rewriteable). DVD Burners may only be able to use DVD+R, or DVD-R, not able to use DVD+or-RW at all, or you might be trying to use DVDRAM. Have a look at the specs listed in the user manual, and go from there.

The driver is not detected by laptop


Is your dvd drive capable of doing light scribe?: If not, then the driver won't make it work. It takes a special drive to use lightscribe, and it should be part of your CD/DVD burner software. I highly recommend Nero software as the best, more reliable and easiest to use. Also, it the brand that usually comes with New CD and DVD drives.

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.
