Re: DVD Burning problem

Have come across this many times your writer seems to be working ok it seems to me you have a bad or corrupt disk just change the recordable disk for another one and everything should then be ok

My DVD drive could not write any things on DVD! it just write documents on CD.

this might be because you have not selected the option to burn a dvd or your burning software does not support dvd burning
there are plenty of free burning software programs on the internet

BurnAware Free is one of the most popular free CD, DVD, Blu-ray Disc burning software available for Windows.
Using this program you can easily create and burn Audio and MP3 CD, Data and DVD-Video disc, ISO and Cue Image,
erase or format rewritable disc, copy your CD or DVD to ISO image.

hope this helps

Hi ,
For video , use NERO Recode
For data , use NERO Burning Rom
If the issue persists , try using burning with another unit and compare the results . If you are still stuck , change software . If this still doesn't work , install Malwarebytes and make a full deep scan of your system ( )
One of these solutions should help .
Best regards .

Whenever I try to burn a cd in my DVD ram a message shows up saying it is not accessible, Incorrect function.? What do I do? ive tried to disable and enable the drive then reboot the sys., still the same...

try running the fix-tool provided by Microsoft on this web page

If that fails then my suspicion is that either
1) the drive has failed
or more likely
2) because you don't have any DVD burning software, windows can't understand the blank DVD-RW disk. Thas basic packet-burning software installed with XP CANNOT write to DVD disks.

However there is a bit more to it than that - the Microsoft CD burning software (which is a cut down Roxio product) cannot co-exist with any other packet burning software (e.g. DLA, In-CD or simuilar) so if one of those is installed you have to DISABLE the MS CD burning capability on the drive settings tab. Even worse, Internet Explorer 8 is not compatible with DLA - which is included in quite a few CD/DVD suites including many of the later Roxio versions

My advice would be
1) un-install any CD or DVD burning software on the machine
2) disable the MS CD burning
3) run that Microsoft patch
4) Install some DVD burning software but DON'T install the packet writing software part of it

Note that after installing that patch you may also have to reinstall any DVD playing software

Reads and writes cds,reads dvds but does not burn dvds,

This drive is normally supplied with a couple of Dells.
(because of compatibility) Inspiron 700m,710m

If you have another machine for testing?
check the disk for contents to see if the data burn happened,
this will explain a few things in your processes.

Uninstall/Reinstall the drive and reboot then try again.

Have you tried a full system reinstall yet?
Did it fix your problem?Please let me know thanks

Sony DW-G120A DVD RW works very slowly with my new computer

I had a similar problem and fixed it by buying a £10 external USB enclosure, ripping the drive out of the computer and putting it into the enclosure.

Problem with burning dvd on imation dual layer dvd burner

You seem to have a related problem, you can't burn cd's and you cannot install windows without an error. Either your hard drive has a bad sector where it keeps trying to write the data or your dvd drive has a reading error. Firstly check your hard drive for errors, right click on your 'c' drive and down to properties, then click on tools tab, then error checking. This can take quite a while, so be patient. Secondly, there have been numerous updates from Nero especially related to Service Pack 2 so download the latest updates from their 'Ahead Nero' website, they are free as you are'nt upgrading just updating. Your ratings are important
