Is your dvd rom drive a RW drive? if not, you need to buy a RW-dvd rom drive to be able to RW dvds or cds.

If you already have a RW DVD Rom drive, you need to have a burning application (ex. nero burning rom). You can check on the internet and download a freeware and install it on your machine.

I have an Inspiron m1710 laptop and the combo cd/dvd drive is not recogninzing cds or dvds inserted into it.


Hello,
Just follow the link http://support.microsoft.com/mats/cd_dvd_drive_problems/en-us
and also click on NOW RUN from right side box. It will automatically give you the message, well or bad.
If the problem with the lens, you should try cleaning the lens,with disk cleaner, it's already gone bad and there is no harm to take a risk to open or disassemble the dvd/cd rw,click on the bellow link

Philips DVD+RW SDVD8820 does not recognise burned CD or DVDs


it could be upper and lower filters in registry and system files, use a removal tool called filtercheck 4.6 in CDR-zone.com (goto the forums and search for filtercheck)
after you downoad, run it, click yes to all filters found to remove. close program.

reinstall your preferred burning app (1 prog installed at a time and test burn)
this is to replace the filter entry that was corrupt
