Question about Sony DRU840A DVD-RAM Burner
I can't get my cd's I recorded on my sony dvd recorder to play on my dell desk top computer .The computer won't read anything. help! vlf the computer is supposed to play and create cd's. The cd's I recorded will play on my tv but not my computer.the computer will not read the disc. I recently installed roxio creater premier.The computer is a dell xps420.
It is one of two things. It is either the type of blank DVDs you are using, or that the drive on the computer is not a DVD drive.
I believe it is the former, and that you are using DVD-RAM disks to record on. Unfortunately, DVD-RAM is not very compatible with most DVD players these days. In the very beginning of recording DVDs there was DVD-RAM, but then came DVD-RW and DVD+RW. In a sense the DVD-RW and DVD+RW have won as most all drives read that media, but DVD-RAM is not really mainstream anymore.
You could try it in another computer as different drives will read different media, or buy an external USB dvd writer that reads DVD-RAM disks too (about $60 at BestBuy). All drives list the media they will read on the box. It will be in a long line, ie. (MP3, VCD, SVCD, DivX, DVD-R). You obviosly need DVD-RAM on there.

Check file extensions of files on your recorded cd's. Add file extension to Roxio, Windows Media player and check your drive settings.
