Trying to burn some files to a memorex cd-rw. no computer will recognize that a cd is in the cd drive, even though one is in there. might be a formatting issue, but can't get any software to recognize cd, even burning software. tried all 5 cd's in pack. same with all.

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!

I have a TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-H652H DVD/CD-ROM drive and it use to burn dvd and cd-r with no problem. I have not been using this feature for sometime and recently decided to backup my computer onto dvd-rw(s)...


> 4.37 GB

4377 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 is 4.7 times 10 (to a large power).

So, depending on if you measure as multiples of 1000 (10**3) or 1024 (2**10), you get either '4.3' or '4.7'.

Pick a collection of files of over 1GB (a CD-writable holds 700MB), and try to write to one DVD-recordable. If it works, it works, despite the "claim" that the blank disk was a CD-recordable.

I have been attempting to burn a cd from my itunes library, it keeps giving me an error 2630. Yes I am using a new blank cd.


What type of CD media does your burner support? CD+R CD-R, CD-RW.
A few suggestions:
CD-RW or re-writables do not support audio burning to CD format.
Are songs being burned as a data disc(unplayable files) or CD audio?
Have you exceeded the 700 to 800 MB range of data that a CD can hold?
Try dropping a couple of songs off the list and see what happens.
Try rebooting the computer and try burning again.
Down load a free version of Nero software and try to burn the CD from there.

Not able to burn dvds from file


Hi,

if your DVD Drive ( ROM ) read-Only-Memory. then it will only read DVDs And Not Write Them. You need a DVD RW Drive, to be able to write. If Your CD Drive Is A CD/RW That means its a CD Re-writable drive. try a Burn To CD.

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.
