DVD Burner Not Found


male sure the laptop has teh burn dvd capability cause it can be just a cd writer and dvd rom ..and in this case it is explainable why its giving the error ..
If you are sure you have a dvd writer ...than be sure you select it in the options of the burning software you use..
and 3rd ... if your writer is corrupted ..try to go to device manager ..(click right on compuer select properties..and device manager..) in there look for dvd writer...click right on it ..and select update driver...If the disk is not present click right on computer ..and select scan for hardware changes...If the writer is deactivated this will bring it back ..Than update its driver and be sure it's not in yellow cause this means the driver is not the correct one ..
If no action will correct this ..and still makes the same ..than I suggest to reinstall the operation system ..and this way you will eliminate the possibility that a bug corrupted it ...and in case it still not working you have to consider replacing it ..but not before trying a operation system reinstall ..cause there are viruses that attack the disk drive's driver ..and this is the only fix .

Why wont my emachine desktop burn data onto a dvd disk


First check whether you have a DVD writer or not.
1)If you drive is a DVD writer a DVD-RW will be written on top of the drive otherwise it is not a dvd writer...so obviously it will not write a DVD.
2) If the drive is a DVD-RW then you need a burning software to burn diske. Please download any valid burning softwares from the interne such as 'Nero' or 'Power iso' and install the same in your pc to burn dvd.

If you feel that, my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

Thanks.

Laptop sr.no 67495573k toshiba dvd player /dvd writer need software


Usually the support sites for your laptop will have the links for the authoring software that came with the system. However, for a reasonable amount you can purchase a very useful CD/DVD authoring tool: Ahead's Nero. (site: www.nero.com) I've found that this software offers more function than Easy CD for less cost (that, and it generates ISOs- handy for making hard drive backups of my disc collection!) The software also provides a free trial to see if you want to purchase.

I have a Dell Latitude D530 laptop - does it have a DVD writer?


According to your Service Tag, your machine was shipped with an 8X DVD -ROM & 24X CD/RW Combo Drive, so yes you will need to purchase a DVDRW drive. There is a single layer burner that 4.7GB, and a dual layer model for 8.5GB. They can be purchased from Dell directly, or eBay, Amazon etc (same drive fits D630, D830 etc) and there is a rectangular button on the lower right hand side of the drive that you press in, to pull out the existing CDRW, and simply slide the new drive in. You will need a Burning software like Roxio or Nero to burn DVD's onto the new drive.

NERO ESSENTIALS is full of 30 day trials which I found infuriating!!


I am sorry to hear about your troubles.

It sounds as though LiteOn bundled a limited-time trial of Nero with their hardware. This is a normal/routine
condition of hardware sales. Most certainly the purchase price of the DVD drive did not include the cost of
a fully licensed copy of Nero's DVD authoring software. Retailers often assume that consumers are aware and accustomed to the workings of such bundles, which often is not the case.

I am assuming you are using Microsoft Windows XP as your operating system; please let me know if you are not. XP is capable of authoring CDs, but not DVDs so you will need to either purchase a commercial application or try one of these free applications:

Burn4Free
AVS Disc Creator
DeepBurner Free Version

If your computer is a Dell manufactured computer you can obtain DVD authoring software for free from http://support.dell.com by providing your Dell Service Tag number.

Need device drivers


You do not need any device drivers for this drive to work, you just connect to a USB 2.0 port using the usb cable or a USB 1.1, although this is a little slower. The software that is supplied with the writer is burning/authoring software programme, so you would have to download a free cd/dvd burning programme(just do a google search) or purchase one. Nero burning software is supplied with the unit, but as for playing dvd's you have windows media player for that.
