The problem request has some holes in it but one suggestion is the disks you are using may not be readaqble by the drive itself. look up the drive on the web and see that the disk is supported. meaning some suuport cd/rw +/- some only support cd/r+ or cd/r- or cd/rw+or cd/rw- there are many different formats so be sure the product youve purchase is supported.

Re: Can't burn cds
Check your compilation, it is possible that you are trying to burn more data than you can write to a blank CD, in which case it will ask for a cd with the right capacity.
80 min CD-Rs can have 700MB written to them.
if you are trying to write more than this the software will reject the blank as not having the right capacity.

The problem that you have described, indicates that your DVD-RAM is not working properly, perhaps the lens has been damaged or the software that you are using for burning the cd is not functioning properly due to change in settings, I would recommend you to do the following steps and check if it works :-
Make sure that the software that you are using to burn the CD , is working properly ,a good idea would be to uninstall and reinstall the software , I believe this should help you out.
If the above trick does not work ,then you can use your inbuilt windows cd writer to test write a cd , by right clicking the files you want to burn and select the send to option and then select the write these files to cd or selected the rewritable disc option.
If the above method does not work , then you need to get a replacement for your DVD-RAM drive , in case it's under warranty , or you need to buy a new one , if it's damaged out of warranty, there are people who try to ask a third party vendo to chage lens , but it's not assured and could waste your valuable time and money.
make sure that the dvd burner is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the dvd burner including electical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might bebad/faulty or your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd burner then plug them back in or you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device control panel admistrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you can you can update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall hope this helps
Your best solution (since your USB devices and your network-adapter are not working) is to remove the disk-drive from the old computer, and temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in the new computer, and then copy all your files from "old" to "new".
Or, try a different brand of "blank" CD-R disks -- the "firmware" (software inside the CD-writer) may not be recognizing "newly-manufactured" media). Unless you can update the firmware (by downloading the latest firmware on another computer, and burning a CD-R disk, and then taking that disk to your computer), it's easiest to "move" the disk-drive to the new computer.
Are you able to burn DVDs before using that DVD writer? If yes, then did you make any changes on your computer? and have you tried other blank DVDs?, You can also try to uninstall/reinstall your burning program or try the default burner for windows.
2 - you have some bad cds. They are not balanced when they spin in the drive and will wobble and make all kinds of noise. If you continue to use those disks, you stand the chance of damaging the drive -- if not damaged already.
i think you,ve hit the nail-on-the-head.
The laser has to power up highrer to write a DVD, or ocassionally have a dual laser. 1 for read/write CD. And 1 For Read/Write DVD.
Certain cd roms, only use CD- media. it,s probably worth checking which media is supported by the drive.
Also check the drives aren,t conflicting, on the same ide channel, sometimes swapping channels, ide primary/secondary can help, or swiitching Master/Slave/cable select jumpers on the drives Themselves.
Try using nero to burn, be sure to select cd as the type of media... e.g Start > all programs >> nero >> data >> nero express .. Then
select cd, data cd,, drag some pics across and burn it.. If that dont work.. i hope u got warrenty... or if you wish to keep trying let me know
