I went to burn a cd and it says my burner or software is not found


Remove the device in device manager and re-boot the computer and let it detect and install the drivers again. This usually fixes the problem unless the drive itself is bad.

Burning CD-R


Windows Xp don't have its own CD burner. if you mean Roxio, that is 3 party CD burner.
try a different CD. some time the CD burner detect some smudge at the beginning area, then it tell you the CD is NG.
Try to clean the CD with CD cleaner and clean the CD also.

Some time I have to go through 2-3 CD in order to find one that will work.

Unable to burn dvd using LG DVD ROM


your DVD Rom drive cannot burn DVDs because it is not a DVD burner, DVD Rom drives are different from DVD writers, if you want to burn DVD you must buy a DVD burner/writer.

Burner not installed message


James, I have found in the past that many computer manufacturers only install a trial version of some software. One major manufacturer, who shall remain nameless custum built a P.C online that included a CD burner, but I found out later that even though they installed the burner, they provided no burning software. It sounds as though you have no CD burning software installed. First, from the start button, go to control panel, then to add remove software. A list will compile showing all software installed on your machine. If you do not have a CD, or DVD burning program installed and your computer came with no CD's( most today do not) that may contain that program, you will probably have to buy your own at this point. Just to clarify, do you only have a CD burner, or is it a CD burner/ DVD ROM, or do you have a DVD burner. If you have a DVD burner, then you are capable of burning both CD's and DVD's. If you need to purchase burning software I would suggest you do an internet search for Nero, This is the software that I use. It works well in addition to being easy to use.On the Nero site I have in the past purchased their OEM version, the OEM versions are usually available at very good prices. I prefer to purchase software online and have a disc mailed to me as opposed to downloading it online just so that I have a hard copy if I ever need it. If you are limited to burning CD's, just get the CD software. If the device you have installed in your computer is a DVD burner, then purchase the DVD software and you can burn on both formats.

C d burner


This suggests the 'Burn' laser[which is different to the play laser]- has failed. Only way is to replace the device.
