    for some people, disabling digital cd playback for the problematic optical drive solves read problems. Right click on drive in explorer: >Properties>Hardware tab>(select drive)>Properties>Properties tab>uncheck digitalcd playback.

Thank You all for your solutions, but i found out that the problem was that the little door wasn't closing all the way.And as such the dvds weren't fitting in correctly.
Appreciate the response.

There really isn't software that you need to burn DVDs or CDs with Windows. Use Windows Media Center to burn your CDs or DVDs.
Here are some burning software links below or you can google search for some.

hi there,
I will try to help you with the best of my capability.
First, tell me how old is your writer?
Second, switch off your PC, open it up and unplug the writer and replug it again. Maybe the connection was a bit loose. When you restart your PC, make sure that your PC recognises the connection of the Writer. let me know if it works out for you.

Cd is not reading by dvd writer but dvd is running smooth


1.when you write on dvd writer always select low speed to write such as 8x or 16x
2. most of the dvd writer do max speed while wrting the Cd or Dvd
3. due to this reason your cd is not reading
4. you can try a new disk write in slow speed,then check with your cd.

Cannot backup files to a cd/dvd


we may need more details but you can try this for now

1. are you sure you have a cd writer or a dvd writer (writer = burner)--- check the front edge of your cd/dvd unit and look for words like "writer" "burner" or writeable next to the word dvd or compact disc... keep in mind not all cd/dvd writer can write (burn) cd or dvds, some may burn cd but not dvds.

2. is your cd/dvd unit compatible with the media (cd or dvd blank disk) you are trying to use.. depending your cd/dvd especifications your dvd/cd drive is compatible with certain types of cd or dvds that are writeable.

3. is the cd/dvd a writeable cd/dvd and is compatible with your cd/dvd drive? for instance.. if you are using a blank dvd and your cd/dvd drive only burn cd/s and read dvd and cd you won't be able to write to the blank dvd.

4. are you trying to burn a dvd in a corporate computer.?? as a user (not an administrator) of your corporate computer you may not have priviledges that will allow them to burn dvd/cd's even you your drive and your media are compatible.

please post
the error that you get
the brand and model of the computer you're using
the type of media you're using
