I just got a brand new pc and i dont know how to

Hello Dear,

(This procedure is with Microsoft Windows OS)
It's quite easy to use CD/DVD Burner. Most of the CD/DVD writer comes with the Installation CD, that contains the burning software (mostly Nero Burning Rome). Just Install the Software from this CD.
Now you see the programe icon on desktop (i.e. Nero). Double Click on this icon, and you will be presented with the choice, as what type of CD or DVD you want to burn (i.e. Music, Picture, Date). Select the appropriate option. Now add files and click on BURN, when ready. In no time your CD/DVD is ready.

Burner not installed message

James, I have found in the past that many computer manufacturers only install a trial version of some software. One major manufacturer, who shall remain nameless custum built a P.C online that included a CD burner, but I found out later that even though they installed the burner, they provided no burning software. It sounds as though you have no CD burning software installed. First, from the start button, go to control panel, then to add remove software. A list will compile showing all software installed on your machine. If you do not have a CD, or DVD burning program installed and your computer came with no CD's( most today do not) that may contain that program, you will probably have to buy your own at this point. Just to clarify, do you only have a CD burner, or is it a CD burner/ DVD ROM, or do you have a DVD burner. If you have a DVD burner, then you are capable of burning both CD's and DVD's. If you need to purchase burning software I would suggest you do an internet search for Nero, This is the software that I use. It works well in addition to being easy to use.On the Nero site I have in the past purchased their OEM version, the OEM versions are usually available at very good prices. I prefer to purchase software online and have a disc mailed to me as opposed to downloading it online just so that I have a hard copy if I ever need it. If you are limited to burning CD's, just get the CD software. If the device you have installed in your computer is a DVD burner, then purchase the DVD software and you can burn on both formats.

Not working

Did this just start recently?
Has it ever worked or are you just installing the drives?

Try doing a System Restore.
Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore.
Back to the day before that it worked.
If this doesn't work, reseat the wires on the back of the drive.
(Or if they are new, return them to the store)

My acer

How long has it been giving this problem, if its less than a cpl days you can try restoring to a previous date since some viruses ca cause that problem. If that doesnt work or your system isnt infected then i guess your drive is dead and you will need to get a new one... you could also try your drive on another computer, to ensure its dead.. Let me know what happens..
