DVD player not reading or playing DVDs or CDs

I tried using NTI CD and DVD Maker a while ago to burn a backup data DVD. It locked up, and I had to restart. When I booted again and tried another disc, the drive flashed briefly on then it said there was no disc in the drive. When I clicked on the icon for it, it told me to insert a disc.

Can the drive be damaged from restarting like that in the middle of an operation and is it fixable?

It can get damaged that way. but try rebooting yoru computer first. sometimes that can clear the problem if it just didnt load up correctly in the system. if that dont work, try rolling back the driver, if still samething then uninstall drivers and reinstall.

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.

I have a samsung cd r rw sw 240b installed (WinXP) and it plays/burns CDs & DVDs but won't burn data/video on DVDs. What to do?


find it hard to believe that this device will burn dvd's as it will only burn cd's you require a dvd writing device to burn and read dvd's data or video with 3rd party software such as nero or nti

When I want to copy a CD must I only record on a CD blank disc; i.e. not a DVD


It depends upon what type of data you want to copy onto a CD or DVD.
If you want to copy and play music in a CD player then it needs to be on a CD disc.
If you want to copy and play movie DVDs in a DVD player then it needs to be on a DVD disc.
If you want to backup data files then it can be on either CD or DVD discs (depending upon the amount of data to be stored on the disc - CD holds 700 Mb, single layer DVD holds 4.7 Gb, and dual layer DVD holds 8.5 Gb of data).
A DVD player can read both CDs and DVDs, but a CD player cannot read DVD discs.

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds


It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

Are you sure that you have the file type associated in your Windows operating system to a Music player like Windows Media or iTunes? This may be the most common reason that music CDs won't play.

The drive database cdrw32.bdb cannot be found i tied to replace file still didnt work now also says nti has stopped working


The following is installation instructions for CD-Maker Professional. For Backup Now, the instructions are the same, however, you will install it in the NTI Backup Now directory, rather than the NTI CD-Maker directory.
To install, please copy the "cdrw32.bdb" file use Windows Explorer or My Computer to copy the database file into the main folder for CD-Maker 2000 Professional. If you installed our software in a different directory then you will need to copy the file into your alternate location.
Example where database file is located:
C:\Program Files\NewTech Infosystems\NTI CD-Maker 2000 Professional

You can also use the find feature in Windows to find the exact location of the database file. Click "Start", the "Search", then "for Files and Folder", then type in cdrw32.bdb and click "Search Now". After it finds the file then you can read under the "In Folder" heading for the correct path where the database file is located. Use Windows Explorer or My computer to copy the database file into this location.

NOTE:
(1) It works only on full retail versions of NTI software
(2) For CD-Maker, it works for Version 5.1.1 or later.
(3) For NTI Backup Now, it works for Version 2.2.33 or later.
(4) For supported DVD burner models, CD-Maker V5.1.XX and Backup NOW! (and DriveBackup!) V2.X will support only the CD burning function of these models, not DVD burning. DVD burning is supported starting from Version 6.0 of CD&DVD-Maker, and Version 3.0 of Backup NOW! and DriveBackup!, respectively.
Thanks for using Fixya

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
