Don't understand how to burn DVD's

Ok, so I have been trying out my laptop for burning dvds but i am still a lil lost. I started out using the pre-installed program "windows dvd maker" and another one "windows movie maker" and when I would try to bring and burn files to it, it would only allow still pictures and not any of my lil video clips that I have saved in "my pictures". I am still xo confused and would really love some help and guidance on how to do this. thank you

Inspiron 1525 PC Notebook: can i use Dell Inspiron 1525 to burn dvds? How to ...


Hi Richard, yes you can burn DVDs with your laptop. Check the CD/DVD disc that came with your computer. However, I understand its pre-installed either with Roxio or Sonic utilities. On the other hand, if you have Vista and Windows 7 it will do as well.

Please comment if the information provided has been helpful for the improvement of my support assistance. Thank you and regards.

Not able to burn dvds from file


Hi,

if your DVD Drive ( ROM ) read-Only-Memory. then it will only read DVDs And Not Write Them. You need a DVD RW Drive, to be able to write. If Your CD Drive Is A CD/RW That means its a CD Re-writable drive. try a Burn To CD.

Home burned DVDs won't load, commercialy produced DVDs load OK


Try using a programme called dvd flick http://www.dvdflick.net/ to author your dvds and use imgburn http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn them. I had similar kind of problem with dvds burned with nero and now use dvd flick and imgburn all the time and have had no problems. They are both free programmes so hopefully they will sort the problem out for you :)

My dvd burner doesn't burn dvds


You need to check that with blank DVD's you are using compatible with your drive.Because the DVD's may work with your extranal drive but not with your builting drive. If this doen't slove the problem I would recommend using a different burning software other than "sonic record now" and "vista o/s Built-in dvd burner".

Reads and writes cds,reads dvds but does not burn dvds,


This drive is normally supplied with a couple of Dells.
(because of compatibility) Inspiron 700m,710m

If you have another machine for testing?
check the disk for contents to see if the data burn happened,
this will explain a few things in your processes.

Uninstall/Reinstall the drive and reboot then try again.

Have you tried a full system reinstall yet?
Did it fix your problem?Please let me know thanks

When you say you cannot burn DVD's, do you mean you cannot burn DVD movies or do you mean you cannot burn data files to a DVD?

Burning DVD movies requires specific software to transcode the video and create a directory structure that DVD's players expect.

When you try to burn DVD's does it produce an error? What software are you using to burn?

Can't burn DVDs (VistaHomePrem)


Well I am not surprised ya can't get it to work.. It can all be quite confusing.... I suggest that you try some "Other" burning software. I recommend CopytoDVD...AnyDVD ... convertXtoDVD.... vso-copytodvd.en.softonic.com/ OR AnyDVD www.slysoft.com/en/download.html ConvertXtoDVD vso-convertxtodvd.en.softonic.com See one has to have a program that will "Burn" in a Format suitable for ALL players PC & stand alone DVD's the ones I have listed Just work... ensure you read the "Help" files and B4 long ya will be watching DVD's.
