Unless you have one of the very latest laptops, your model laptop most likely has a DVD ROM combo drive - which allows you to play DVDs and CDs also burn CDs/
You need to give me the make and model number of your laptop for me to verify if your laptop is capable of burn DVDs.

My burner will not burn cd's anymore. It still plays cd's fine as well as play and burn dvd's fine. I see no errors in hardware setup. It is a nec dvd +- RW ND 6650A that came with my Dell Inspiron E1705.


The CD Burner / Player / DVD Burner are all different heads. If the Dell Inspiron E1705 is an older model it is most likely you have reached the end of it's usable life for the CD burner part. If it is new the CD burner is most likely defective and hopefully warrantied. Otherwise these CD/DVD units can be replaced relatively inexpensively (as compared to buying a new laptop).

I have a Sony Vaio desktop with XP. My DVD-CD


Have you tried burning a CD in the new drive? Because the drive is a DVD it will always be recognised as a DVD, but should work perfectly well with CDs both playing and recording.

Dvd burning problem


i experience to your problem, this your burning a VOB is very fine but it your going to open at the same dvd burner you cannot see the files inside and also if you play that to your dvd-player,.. you know this type of burning speed is the matter, maybe you burn at maximum, keep burning your files at low speed for recognizing its buffer in good result..

My lg GSA-H55N dvd writer is not playing Cds but plays Dvds fine


your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution
thankyou

Burned CD's won't play in auto CD player


I had the problem of burned CD's not playing in my car. I used a CD-R and burned it at "slow" burn rate. Now I don't have a problem with playing the cd's in my car player. Try it, it worked for me.

HP Probook 6560b BIOS doesn't recognize working WD SATA HDD. I have verified that it works in another computer and two other SATA HDD's work in my Probook. I have a WD Black 500GB SATA HDD (model #WD5000BPKX) that was the Kubuntu OS drive in my old HP Probook 6550b and works flawlessly when I test it in my husband's HP DV2000, but the BIOS on my current HP Probook 6560b does not recognize it. Running a HD test within the BIOS returns no drive installed, however booting from Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04 Live USB sticks shows the HDD in the OS's file manager and partition manager, and another (Seagate) SATA HDD works flawlessly in this laptop. I have restored the BIOS to defaults and the version showing within the BIOS - F08 - is newer than the one shown for Linux on HP's driver site. Are you aware of any incompatibility with this particular model of HDD? I have VirtualBox but no Windows computer, if it is advised to update the BIOS to the current F67 revision shown for Windows computers on the HP support site. EDIT: Solved. I had no access to a Windows computer, but figured for whatever reason the BIOS in a computer that shipped with a 500GB SATA HDD wasn't recognizing a 500GB SATA HDD. So I installed the original Windows Vista Basic on the older 320GB HDD, downloaded the current HP BIOS update for that OS (on my husband's Ubuntu computer, since of course Windows didn't recognize all of my hardware), copied it to the 320GB HDD, and installed it without a hitch. The Probook 6560b is now running under a fresh install of Kubuntu 18.04 on the 500GB SATA HDD that wasn't recongnized prior to that update. Maybe not the simplest way to resolve it, but at least it's fixed. Hope this helps someone else with an older laptop not recognizing their SATA HDD. :)
