Re: my burner is not working

This sounds to me like your CD/DVD is borked,& you need a new one, sorry.. Ya see, really the only way ya can "see" if it is OK, or not, is to try another one... to isolate the problem. They break down quite commonly I have found. If you are unable to do this, then it's off to the repair shop.. As I always say in these cases get a firm "Quote" and an explanation of repair.

Can play dvd but can't burner nero 9 and deep burner samsung writemaster does't show up as burner

i believe what you have is a dvd player/cd writer.this means you can play dvd's and burn only on cd's(not dvd's).so you may have to upgrade to a dvd writer drive.with this you can burn dvd's using nero 9.

Burning dvd/cd

Hello there. As of about 5 or so years ago, it really doesn't matter which format of blank dvd you use to burn a disk to. if the intended player is around, or definitley older than that I would check on the specs in the manual to make sure.

Music CDs that are stamped by the factory have a format that Windows does not normally recognize, except thru Media player, or other aware programs. That music format is CDA. You need a CD ripper program to convert the CDA file to something Windows does recognize, like MP3 or WAV, then copy the files to your USB drive. Programs that rip CD music to files are UltraISO, Media Player 10, Nero, etc.. Here's one link to using Media Player to rip your CDs. This should get you started.
