Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

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 dvds and cds no problem, but it will no longer write cds. If iTunes is open when I put a blank cd in, iTunes will automatically close. If I try to burn it through other means, I get an error code saying that the drive is not accessible. Again, this burner worked hundreds of times before this randomly started happening. Please help.

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.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 3000 DVD/CD-RW drive

If its the DVD/RW CD/RW unit it will possibly have...
NTI CD/DVD Burner which is a part of the Arcade System .

Easy to use and stable as anything I have seen before,3
Fast n Friendly,Remembering the max ram is 2GB and
with all barrells loaded performs like a beautiful piece of art.
Also Nero is an old favourite too.
Producing your own dvds from scratch is a satifying excercise and amazing when you can see the look in everyones eyes,,,,
Yes - Impact is everything.

I found your answer,
Grab you machine and look at the symbols on the disk draw.

The device you have is a CD/RW-DVD Rom.
What this means it is a CD Writer and a DVD Reader.
This device will never burn DVDs.sorry

To write DVDs you will need to buy DVD/RW device.


I hope this helps ,please rate me thanks

Chances are it has broken. You can either have it replaced, or purchase a external DVD burner and plug it into a USB port.

First you can try a different CD/DVD burning problem.

If that doesn't help you might need a need CD/DVD burner as the one you have is all burnt out.

If you need more help just comment.
