This is because the model you mentioned is just a combo drive. It is not a dvd burner. You can watch dvd's with it but not burn them. The way manufacturers word the advertising leads some people to believe that they have a dvd and cd burner. All you have is a cd burner / dvd player. What you want is a dvd-rw / cd-rw drive. Sorry! I hope this helps.

Nero Serial code key for registration

You can obtain a free nero burning rom 9 download and a serial key emailed to your email from ahead software / nero by signing up to the free trial - this will let you use the software legally as a trial for around 15 days, during this time you can burn dvd, cd and other media for free.

After the trial is over, you must purchase the program, if you can't afford the program and if you want to get it cheaper than what they are asking for it, buy a new CD/DVD burner that has nero software included those generally cost around 20 to 30 $ from

if you can't afford that either, then there are free alternatives to nero. For example cdburnerxp is a great program that will get the job done, it will burn your cd and dvds for free. Download -

I have an lg external super multi dvd rewriter (gp08lu10).. i tried burning a 4.7GB DVD-RW but it doesn't work.. the memory capacity shows 0 bytes but i inserted a 4.7GB DVD-RW (also it shows that...

CD/DVD drives will always show 0 bytes if there is no media present.
You will need extra software in order to burn DVD such as Roxio, Nero. I beleive the LG burners show come with software, you will need to install it in, and run it to burn DVDs.
Nero does offer a free version that will burn DVDs

Philips driver reads dvd and cd discs but won't write to dvd disc. Philips driver model no DVDR1628K/00. 1,7ghz Celeron, 768 Mb ram. Nero software. Was writing for years. I tried Infraexpress.

Hi rossw8:

You can find the most current drivers for your DVDR here:

If you are rubbing Windows Vista or Windows 7 you shlopw be aware that the supplied software ("Nero Essentials") is not compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Windows Vista already includes its own standard built in functionality to burn your CD. You do not need additional software to burn CD's. For burning DVD the Internet currently offers alternative software which is free and offers similar functionality (like Nero 9 Lite).

Windows 7 already includes its own standard built in functionality to burn your CD/ DVD. You do not need additional software for that. However, the Internet currently offers alternative software which is free and offers similar functionality (like Nero 9 Lite).

Trust this is helpful. Please vote.

I have just bought an Asus SRD - 08d1 for my wife's laptop and have no idea how to use it. I presume it needs NERO to work

Depends what you want to do with it and what the OS is.

If Windows XP, you can burn to CD using OS but DVD needs Nero or similar to burn. Further, you will need DVD display software such as to watch DVDs.

I think Vista works native (untested) but Windows 7 has basic funtionality built right in.

Yes it certainly should be compatible with the CD/DVD drive.

Roxio has it's own burning software included with the program, you will just have to explore the software until you work out how to burn a CD using Roxio itself.

If you want to try another burning program try Nero 9 trial. All you have to do is enter your email address and then download the software. Nero is an excellent bit of software, i personally have never had any problems with it.
Get Nero 9 here >>>>>>>>>>

Dvd writer does not burn on raw file system cds

What OS are you using? I doubt it is the burner. I have the same model burner and it burns everything I try to burn just fine. It works on both my XP SP2 installation and the OS X86 Leopard 10.5.5 installation. I have burned video, data and bootable OS DVDs and CDs in both operating systems.

It may just be Nero. You could try Alcohol 120% or Ultra ISO.

How to record from a website to cd on laptop

To burn cd/dvd you have to check :

1. Your laptop cd/dvd drive have what capability:
- cd writer = only burn cd
- cd writer/dvd reader(combo) = still only burn cd
- dvd writer = can burn cd, dvd single layer(4GB)
- dvd DL writer = can burn cd and dvd single 4GB and dual layer 8GB.
Other than those, is not possible.

2. Must have burn apps named:
- Nero
- Alcohol 120%
- other. search internet.

If you have them then using the apps to burn, just read the manual.

Koam114 is in Korean. I don't understand :)
But If you want songs from website, you should download it first.
Unless the site is giving you a step by step how to burn songs directly to your cd/dvd.
Once downloaded, would be easier to burn to cd/dvd.
