Question about LG (gce-8525bb) CD-RW Burner

1 Answer

I am slowly losing all my long hair:)

I tried burning an audio cd today, and have been successful many times in the past. I tried from itunes, windows media and nero...and nothing worked. They all spent the time "burning" the disc....but in the end...the disc was empty. I went into properties and enabled to burn discs. I am just wondering what else I can do....if I have to install anything...and if so, how I go about it! Thanks!!!!!

Nero is the best software for burning but there are some other nero softwares which does not work properly. I recommend you to use nero 6 or nero 7.0.9 or nero this are the best for burining .

if it does not work then try to change the plug id port of your writer put it in other id port and try it. if this also does not work that means your writers lens is over.u will have to buy new one.

I have a super multi GP10 and I don't know how to burn music from my iTunes with it. I can't install the software.

open Itunes in the top left hand corner select file from thdrop down list you will see Library click to open then you should see back up to disk then more options back up entire library to disk
this might be because you have not selected the option to burn an audio cd or your burning software does not support audio 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

Lg cd/dvd rw will not play or record. but will play mp-3

It should "play" commercially-produced audio CD disks.
With the correct software (PowerDVD, et cetera) it should "play" commercially-produced audio/video DVD disks.
It seems to be reading "data" disks (MP3 files are just "data" files), and passing them to your software (Windows Media Player, iTunes, WinAmp) for decoding and playing.

You need software (Nero, or AShampoo Burning, or ...) to be able to "burn" CD and DVD disks.
