    It does not say anything. The green light comes on and it starts to spin as if to read. Then it is just a cycle of start to spin and stop.

What does it say when it fails?  Try using a much slower burn speed.

Hello there!
Your burner can't recognize CD.
You should restart your computer, or try to burn different mark of CD (Verbatim, Princo, etc.).

Sometimes it doesn't read CD and DVD, often doesn't recognise any CD Or DVD inserted in even its driver. THANKS for helping me!


1. When an optical drive doesn't read or recognize CD/DVD the unit is in need of replacement. Units can be straight out of the box and fail.
check the connection to the device ( cable) and the power to the unit

Does not recognize disk


Either:
* the disk you're inserting is not "empty" -- try it on a different computer;
* you should try a different manufacturer of "blank" disks;
* you need to upgrade the "firmware" inside your CD-writer, to recognize more brands of "blank" media;
* the CD-reader is malfunctioning -- when you "cancel" the burn-attempt, and insert a commercially-produced program CD or commercially-produced audio CD, can those disks be properly read?
* you have two CD/DVD devices in your computer, and you're inserting the "blank" disk into the "wrong" device.

My drive will not burn dvd-r anymore but it used to, it burns cd-r and reads discs no problem, but now when i try to burn the disc spins but makes a strange knocking noise.


sometime it has more to do with the driver software than it does with the unit itself.
Try uninstalling the writer software, restart the computer, reinstall the software, restart the computer, and attempt burn again. Software occaisionally gets confused and needs to be "rebooted" from time to time. Hope this helps.

You might want to try the nero lite software. Most of these so called softwares do not reconize some burners. There is a site that tells you these problems. Try to google your (lets say hp cd) and then say EX: hp cd drive (try to use a model)..+not recognizing my burner, don't use spaces in the query.
Nero is a good burning software that enables most burners to be recognized.
If you have had Roxio .. this software is not very friendly to some of the burners out there. If you have this software get rid of it, uless you have the original disk or it come with oem on the restore disc.
PS Use Nero Lite it works the berries!

My Philips DVD8421 burner will not recognize a blank DRD-R disc.


Ok, the reason is quite simple. The Philips DVD8421 does not recognise the DVD-R format.Not all DVD/CD burners read all discs. It does recognise DVD+R though. So all you need to do is use these discs instead. This should solve your problem.

Hope that helps.

CD burner and possibly the CD Drive


Try a different blank CD, I have thrown out many new blank CD's and DVD"s, and for some reason one will work and the next won't.

it seems that your cd rw burner has reached it's MTBF, or it might have even over lasted it, I myself experienced such problems and the only way to solve it is to replace its read write assembly as a package, it is available at all LG computer peripherials store.

Burner doesnt recognize CD's


is this a new device? were there any updates on your compter recently? if any of this is correct, you should install new drivers. if this doesnt help, and you aren't capable of dismantling the CD and check its lens, try installing the CDrom on another computer, thats the best way to determine if the problem is with the CD itself or not.
