Lot of these showing up? is it old or new? could be drivers not loaded or were damaged. look at control panel-devices- find the dvd device in list to see if it has a yellow triangle or red x over it. if it shows and is normal without a colored mark on it, it probably needs the drivers reloaded or repaired.

Go to Dell's support site and to their driver page. Put your model number in the box for a search and a page with your drivers will appear, download the drivers for your model and do a re-install of them. download them to a temp folder and when they are downloaded, double click and they will self install, put off rebooting until you install them all.

I have dubbed vcr tape to a Sony DVD-RW disc and tried playing it back through a toshiba player and it keeps coming up Bad Disk. My PC won't even recognise it. When started dubbing the screen displayed 1hr...


Did you say you used a DVD-RW disc to transfer a videotape onto? The reason your PC won't recognise that disc is because the data format on it is a different language to what PCs understand - plus an unfinalised DVD-RW won't play in other DVD players - it is usually an incompatible format.

(DVD+RW discs with titles/top menus created in video mode CAN be played on a PC DVD drive or a normal DVD player as can finalised DVD-R discs (DVD-R discs MUST be recorded and finalised in the same recorder for compatible playback). DVD-RW discs can only be viewed on the unit they were written/recorded on.

The other reason for the 'remaining space' on the disc you describe showing less than 120 minutes is due to a title recently being recorded or erased - unless you format it - the 120 minute / 4.7GB DVD-RW will not show full available space. Erasing titles on re-writable DVDs does not increase space. The same rule applies to unfinalised +R / -R discs (you cannot re-format these to get the space back once recorded - they are 'once only' writables)

I recommend you invest in some DVD-R discs and re-copy your VHS tape to that - then if you are satisfied with the result, title etc., finalise the DVD-R - it will play on any DVD player or PC with DVD support (or it should). These discs are relatively inexpensive to buy just about anywhere.

Final note: do NOT finalise the DVD-RW you recorded (I hope you haven't already done this) - simply format/erase it - re-use it for something else or keep it until you need it.

You can use any brand of DVD, just take note of the format before recording/playing.

On acer aspire 5520g the dvd rw spins the dvd but bio's says its unplugged and it won't read the dvd's


Try downloading a driver from the net, Or install DVD software such as Roxio or Sonic Cine Player. Does it show in hardware as a CD Rom or DVD/RW ? If it shows as a CD the driver is the problem.

Cannot read the min handy cam dvds


The disc needs to be finalized before you play it on other equipment. But to do this will render the disk unusable- If you intend to record over it in time, So it is best to copy the info across to the PC- burn that to a disk and finalize it then most other DVD players[Not all] will run it.
