Are you sure your drive is a dvd writer? And if it is a writer, is it a dvd -r or a dvd +r or a dvd -r/+r? Depending on the way the dvd writes to the disk, you will need to buy specific media for the writer to write to. DVD -R cannot write to DVD +R and vice versa, and even if the drive is a DVD -R/+R, they seldom write to both media with any degree of regularity or of good quality. Most dual dvd writers seem to prefer DVD -R.

Oh yeah, one other thing, if your dvd is a writer, you should check out the drive properties in my computer to verify it is set to record. If you see the recording tab, select it and verify that the box is checked to enable cd recording on this device.

My laptop's not wanting to burn DVD-RW any more. I had to replace the hard drive and ever since then it wont burn an RW disc. It will erase them, and play them. Even the old RW disks from before I...


Go to the website for the DVD Maker and download the latest drivers.
No reason this won't correct the problem.
Don't go to Sony unless they made the DVD burner.

I have a dvd/cd SD-R6252 unit in my r3000 compaq presario. I've burned CDa but cannot burn a DVD. I think I know the answer but I want to be sure is this unit capable of burning DVDs?

Hi, well ur DVD\CDRW drive is a combo drive. It can play CDs\DVDs but burns only CDs as it's NOT a DVDrw @ the same time. It won't burn a DVD.

.... In future I propose u either to replace the drive by a DVDRW or u may buy an external slim dvdrw if u want to keep ur existing drive as well. 2nd solution is best BTW.

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds

It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

Toshiba sd-r2002

I'm very late to your question, but the problem is that this drive doesn't burn DVDs (i.e., it was not designed to do that). It's a CD-RW, DVD-ROM (read only).

What type of DVD do I need to use with this computer inorder to burn a DVD? Does it have to be a rewriteable disc?

Hi Mark here.

Yes you will need DVD-R (or) DVD+R to burn a DVD these are single burn only, once there written you cannot erase them.

DVD-RW & DVD+RW are rewritable and can be used multiple times.

Also check your drive it should say on front what disk it can use some will not burn different DVDs and others will burn all.

Hope this fixed ya! Pleas rate. Good Luck! Need more help comment back.
