Optical drives vary in their capability:
* read CD
* read CD and read DVD
* read/write CD
* read/write CD and read DVD

My computer wont recognise my dvd burner but it will read and play dvds just wont burn them and when i try a new dvd burning tool it cant fint my burner


Is your DVD drive a Combo DVD ROM and CD Read/writer? If so it cannot burn DVD only reads DVDs and read and burn CDs.
If the program cannot find a DVD burner then either the burning software cannot support that model DVD burner ot the DVD burner is faulty.
To test the DVD burner, remove it and install it into another computer to test the burner to see if is faulty.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

How can i burn an audio disc that will play on a cd player and not just my pc?


Modern CD players usually can read all audio disk burned on any computer system.

If you have an older model however you may experience some problem with certain settings, follow instructions below:

1 Ensure that you burn on CD support, and not a DVD, many computer drive can manage the same way CD and DVD, and burn music on DVD, but the player won't read them.
2 Ensure that you are burning an Audio CD on the cd burning, if you will just burn your MP3 files onto a disk, an ordinary CD player won't read them, unless it has MP3 capabilities.
3 If you have an old system try burning at the minimum possible speed , systems built in 80s and early 90s where limited to low speed, some 80s CD drive could read only 2x or 4x.
4 If your system is old also chose close disk after burning option on burning software, this wont affect new cd players.

You also need a software to burn CD, if you do not have burning software , see choice on websites below:

Teac DW-224E-c - cannot burn DVD's


The answer is what you profess. The drive can burn CD's, read CD's and also read DVD's. Everytime I try and burn a DVD I have an unrecognized drive and the properties always show no disk: The drive burns CD's ie;music, but cannot burn DVD it can only read DVD like you say!
