Trying to copy some pics onto a cd to get some disc space but my drive wont recognise the cd rw

do you have a cd writer or rom drive is the first thing you have to check, if it's a writer then put the disc in first and it should give you an option to write files to cd accept then follow the the instruction to add your files, assuming your running windows. iif that does'nt work check to see if your discs are + or - it may be your wriiter will only accept one kind

I have an internal HP DVD Writer 740b that writes on CD but not on DVD. I tried Sony DVD RW and Memorex DVD-RW to copy files on but I failed. I use Nero Essentials to burn. The dialogue box keeps saying no...

DVD-RW drives have 2 different designs, 1 used dual optics, 1 for CD one for DVD, the other uses optics that can refocus between the media types.

If you haven't done so already, flash the firmware of the drive to the latest available from HP.

Assuming that the drive worked with NERO previously, If that doesn't resolve, you will likely need to replace the drive.

If you have not used Nero with that drive for DVD media, you might try a different SW and see if Roxio/Sonic will see DVD media in the drive.

U can use nero, first of all you must format de DVD-RW, so that it can be be rewritable. Then use it like a normar DVD-R disk. And every time you want to rewrite the DVD only make a quickformat and put your things on the DVD.

    SONY DVD RW AW-G170a

    This is a problem with the DVD Writer model. SONY DVD RW AW-G170a has problems reading DVD+/- R/RW Discs. But there is no problem with any of the DVD+/- R/RW Dual Layer, DVD Ram or CD+/- R/RW Discs. It is the reason that this DVD Writer lacks the correct bitsetting for DVD+/- R/RW Discs. There is nothing else you could do other than replacing the wirter with some other model.

    Dvd writer wont accept dvd-r

    If you have posted the correct model of writer, then it only supports the writing of DVD+R and DVD+RW discs, but CD-R and CD-RW disc writing are supported, and it should play all forms of DVD, so it won't burn DVD-R and RW discs, but if it wont play all types then try a cd/dvd cleaner, but to be honest when writers start playing up the lens is normally faulting and a replacement drive will be required.

    My SONY DRU-810A DVD Writer doesn't work with TDK DVD+RW Disc

    some dvd brands dont work with all dvd writers, so your option is to try another make, if that works ok then it's not a writer fault it is just that the media make is not compatable. if you start to see problems with all makes of disc then the writer laser is faulty and a replacement drive neccasary.

    Copying data on to a DVD

    What type of application are you using? I know that the new nero requires you to choose whether you want to write to dvd or cd before it will work. maybe your application is similar.
