Does it still read disc. what disc's are you trying to use on the burning software. check in device that the drivers are upto date. do you or did you used to burn a lot of disc's before as you may have burnt out the laser wrighter.

Posted on Oct 20, 2013

Testimonial: "It still plays dvds and cds no problem. I usually use cheap maxell cd-rs that you can get at Walgreen's. I don't know how to check if the drivers are up to date. I've burnt hundreds of cd's on this burner, so maybe I did burn it out. Thank you for your help. I realize I should have been more specific at first. If I try to burn in iTunes, it will close automatically. If I try to burn through other means, I get an error code saying the drive is not accessible. Thank you again."

    I just managed to burn an mp3 cd, but it still won\'t let me burn a regular play-in-the-car disc.

    go to my computer Icon right click on it. then go to devices. click on that. find the cd rom drive, then right click on the cd rom icon. pannal will come out and update drivers. also do you have ccleaner installed it is a free software that maybe able to help you can remove out of date software and fix reg files that may be making the software not load the right reg file to load for burning. there are some boxs you will need to check for stuff you dont want to lose like cookies passwords. but it should help. then do a defrag. if you dont know how to do this this can also be the problem. go to my computer right click on hard drive right click. go to properties and click on defrag. then click on the start button if it has not been used for a long time then it will take a long time. then when it it finished turn off and re start should start a lot quicker then see if it works then.

SOURCE: dvd writer does not burn on raw file system cds

What OS are you using? I doubt it is the burner. I have the same model burner and it burns everything I try to burn just fine. It works on both my XP SP2 installation and the OS X86 Leopard 10.5.5 installation. I have burned video, data and bootable OS DVDs and CDs in both operating systems.

It may just be Nero. You could try Alcohol 120% or Ultra ISO.

on the back of the hardware are jumpers
mine are located next to where the ribbon plugs in
there are 3 jumpers- like this : : :
the jumper must be on "cable" ( printed above post )
just move the jumper and reinstall
Now xp can find the 10401

With the hp dvd burner 1040r I have, I've burnt hundreds of cds on the same eMac I've had for quite awhile (I think it was made in like '02). One day, my burner just quit burning. It will read and play...


It is hard to believe it lasted this long, sometimes the write laser diode only lasts a couple of years before it dies. You might have to replace the drive.

A freind let me borrow their hp dvd 1040e external 20x multiformat dvd writer. i can burn the music on cds fine with itunes, but i cant figure out how to use the litescribe to burn images on the tops....


You will need Nero burning software. It will after the normal burn show you a screen where you place the image you want to burn for lightscribe. Another failing with lightscribe is that you must have lightscribe discs!

I can't burn cds from my computer.


If you can not burn but can read a CD, that means your writer is no longer working. In this case you have to buy a new CD/DVD writer so that you can burn cd/dvd disc. Have a nice day.

By the way if you have the cd cleaner, run the cd cleaner in your cd drive for about 10 minutes and test for burning. Have a nice day.

How download this software i want iomega DVD/CD writer plz help


There really isn't software that you need to burn DVDs or CDs with Windows. Use Windows Media Center to burn your CDs or DVDs.
Here are some burning software links below or you can google search for some.

Can't burn pass over 78 min on my burner


CDs can only store 800 Mb, which is exactly 78 minutes. If you need to burn more data than that onto a disk then you will need to burn DVDs with a DVD burner.
