Try another disc first ,if no luck than try another disc manufacturer. If it does not help check if you can play anything from this drive if no, check drive connection in your laptop you can also can check BIOS settings for this DVDRW drive and settings for IDE or Sata data transfer mode make shure it works in Ultra DMA not PIO mode. Be carefull with BIOS Setup!!! If nothing helps replace drive. Good Luck!

DVD RW won't burn files.


Please test it with DVD-R. This laptop may have a drive which is not compatible with DVD+R or DVD+RW media. Also, if the drive is dying, it will not burn DVD media anymore, but it may burn CD media.

Won't burn DVD data discs, error code 0x207


Have you looked at this from ACER: http://acer--uk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3410/~/error-code-0x207-shows-during-recovery-dvd-creation I'm sure you already know it seems to be a common problem. Every post seems to point to Media type , can't use RW disk, +or-, seems kink of finicky which seems odd. Only use DVD+R or DVD-R.

It won't see a blank disk or write to it


CD-ROM and DVD-ROM. ROM stands for "Read Only Memory". On the other hand, CD-RW, DVD-RW stand for "Read/Write". So, if the specs of your laptop say that you only have a DVD-ROM, not COMBO or something ending in RW, then you laptop's optical drive is simply not built for writing to discs.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

When i try to copy dvd it keeps telling me to insert blank disc even though one is in there i can burn cds but not dvd it tells me to put in writeable disk and ive put in dvdr-w and dvd-r and still it...


Go to the device manager to insure your optical drive is in fact a DVD/RW. You should also be able to tell by looking at the front of the drive and see what it says. If it says CD Writable or DVD Rom, you cannot do it. Kind of sounds like you have a CD/RW-DVD Rom combination drive, which does not allow the burning of DVD's.

Let me know, OK.
