DVD is reading the data, but its not writing.......when i went for burning the process status is running but not even it complete 1% in 20 minutes.......WHETHER IT IS A SOFTWARE PROBLEM OR HARDWARE? PLEASE...


make sure the burner is getting consistant power check the leads attached make sure it has good secure connections and are dust free

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark? ! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver

this might be because you have not selected the option to burn an certain type of cd/dvd ie:data ,audio ,iso or your burning software does not support the type of cd/dvd you are trying to burn
there are plenty of free burning software programs on the internet
hope this helps you
which burning software??

Need help burning cd with external burner


There shouldn't be a problem. Plug the drive into a USB port on the computer, connect the burner's power cable, and wait for Windows to detect the drive. Then all you need to do is tell your burning software to use that drive.

If you're using the CD burning function built into Windows, that may be giving you trouble. The burning capabilities are pretty limited. You should be using a dedicated burner program. One may have come along with your drive when you bought it. A good free burning program is CDBurnerXP. That's the one I use and it has all the features for making data and audio discs. If your drive is a DVD burner and you want to try authoring DVDs that can play on your TV, try DVDStyler. It's also a free program.

As for the burning process itself, you'll need to follow the steps required by your burning software. The help information and online documentation will help you there.

My cd-r/dvd-r rw, will not recognize blank discs. When it does recognize the disc, it burns at most two audio tracks and finalizes the cd. Then giving me an error message saying disk may be dirty or...


I suggest you try a better program. It is possible there is something wrong with your drive, but this sounds more like a silly software problem. If you are SURE you have a drive capable of burning, then try this free program. I have a blu ray player, it stopped working with most bluray discs. Found that I needed to update the firmware, but my Windows software couldn't burn an .iso disc. This software can do anything you need. http://cdburnerxp.se/download.php

It is free and works beautifully. I was able to download the program, burn an .iso disc and update my bluray player in minutes.

Software problem


Check the drive!! Makse sure its reading disks.. If the drive is reading disk with no problem then the software is the culprit here.. The software not finding the drive itself is due to the software itself..

If your Computer has a removable drive, power it down (Off) and remove the drive, also check all the connecters. If it is internal you will need to open the case and unplug carefully and replug the Drive and repower the Computer and check the system for the Burner.

I have a Asus computer and my cd/dvd rw stop working. I can't watch dvd's or listen to any cd's I need to know what's up with my cd/dvd multi-recorder


First try a system restore back to the last date which you remember that it worked. If that doesnt help, you must find out what cd/dvd burning software is in your computer. It may have been corrupted. Oddly enough, you don't need drivers for the CD/DVD drives. They aren't even recognized unless you have a good non-microsoft burning program. Find out what burning software you have--download Belarc Advisor, a free program (Google it) which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model and serial numbers for hardware and all of your software (with their unique codes), but will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what you have, if it came with the computer, you have to seek an upgrade at the computer manufacturer's website, as it may be a special program not related to the burning software purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their website for upgrades.

Burner problem


Sounds like your burning software may be corrupted. Did it ever work? If so, you might try a restore to the date it last worked. Otherwise, check device manager in Control panel for any nasty yellow checks, and fix as described. You cant use microsoft's buring software--you have to have a good burning program, which likely came with your computer. Find out what burning software you have-- I recommend downloading Belarc Advisor, a free program which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software (with their unique codes), but will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what you have, if it came with the computer, you have to seek a download at the computer manufacturer's website, as it may be a special program not related to the burning software purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their website for upgrades.
