CD ROM = Read Only Memory - play discs
CD R = Recordable - write songs / data discs
CD RW = Re Writable. - use more than once to write songs / data

What does it say on the front of your drive?
If it says RW or R you need to use a program such as Nero to be able to write discs.
Hope this Helps

What software are you using to burn with? Have you tried other CD's? What are you trying to burn? Is the file/files copyright protected? Will the DCD/CD rom play media? Have you upgraded your OS?

I suggest you contact the maker of the software to see if it is compatible with Vista.
If it is, they should be able to help you with the install.

My ACER power FG model wont let me play discs in my cd rom

Likely a bad drive. If it will play data discs but not audio, you have have other problems, but if no discs play then it's probably just a bad drive.

I purchased a pack of Memorex CD-R rrecordable 52X 700MB 80 min. discs from Staples and I was told I could use these to transfer pictures from my drive c. When I put the CD in to the drive D it asks me to...

Cd-R does not need formatting. They are ready to burn. There is probably a problem with your cdr drive.

A cd-rom drive is not a burner.

Are you sure you have a burner and not a cd-rom?

If you do have a burner, try another few disks. If it still says insert disk then your burner has crapped out.

Cannot burn discs

The solution might be that you are using a different type of disc than the one that is needed. For example, if you want to burn a DVD Movie from your computer and you use a CD - ROM. Than would not be possible because to burn DVDs you need discs that are called DVD - ROM.


Hope it works, if not feel free to contact me again for further clarifications. Have a good day!

Have problem with computer allowing me to copy to dvd-rw or cd-rw. I can play both, but can not copy to discs. I have windows xp professional version 2002 service pack 2

Please remember to always note Computer specifications and Operating system details when you post a problem and to explain your problem in more detail( Specify your CD-ROM / DVD Drive more)

If you cant burn DVDRW or CDRW it is likely that your Drive does not support burning these Formats. You can check on your drive at the front; it should tell you what it supports.

Another solution could be that you are not using the correct software to burn your DVDRW/CDRW. I recommend using: Nero

this is a READ error known as a CYCLIC REDUNDANCY READ ERROR.
If the CD ROM is not able to read from the disc .. it gives u this error
This can come due to many reasons
1. OLD CD ROM - not able to read data properly
2. CD with lot of scratches
3. CD not written properly: Data not burn properly on CD at the time of its make.

Solution: Try to insert a new CD in it and then check whether it works or not
or get a CD LENS CLEANER DISC which will remove any kind of small debris on the lens on the CD ROM and then it will work.
This would surely help
