Can i burn the mini cd's/dvd's in my inspiron 1525?

Yes you can, your Notebook has a Dvd Writer with it, mini or normal dvds/cds will burn well without any problem if the Cd/Dvd Drive has no issues reading/writing Cds/Dvds.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Why won't my acer 3100 accept a dvd-r

* your "optical" device can only read CDs, not DVDs;
* it should read DVDs, but something is "dead", and the device is not performing as it should
* you need to install software to "play" a DVD-movie.

Define "will not accept" -- can you hear the drive spin the disc?
Does any program "auto-start" on your computer, when a DVD disk is inserted?

My DVD drive in ACER Aspire 4720 not reading burnt DVDs and CDs

well look for cds that are thicker and sturdier. some low cost CDRs are too thin and/or soft that they cant handle the heat generated by the cd drive.

Dvd rom not reading dvd while reading cd properly!!!

The demands on the drive differ greatly for reading CDs & DVDs.
This is a common problem since alignment of the drive is very critical for DVDs and often fails first.

I don't offer much hope, but you might buy a special disk for cleaning optical drives; sometimes they will help.

This article has some tips that might be of use:
