Re: cd burner

Simple solutions are easiest --

Do you have a combination of two cd and/or dvd devices on you computer?

If so, check to see if you are putting the CD into the correct drive. Often on factory machines the device type will be identified on the cover for the CD tray.

Trying to burn some files to a memorex cd-rw. no computer will recognize that a cd is in the cd drive, even though one is in there. might be a formatting issue, but can't get any software to recognize cd,...

You might want to try the nero lite software. Most of these so called softwares do not reconize some burners. There is a site that tells you these problems. Try to google your (lets say hp cd) and then say EX: hp cd drive (try to use a model)..+not recognizing my burner, don't use spaces in the query.
Nero is a good burning software that enables most burners to be recognized.
If you have had Roxio .. this software is not very friendly to some of the burners out there. If you have this software get rid of it, uless you have the original disk or it come with oem on the restore disc.
PS Use Nero Lite it works the berries!

Burning CD-R

Windows Xp don't have its own CD burner. if you mean Roxio, that is 3 party CD burner.
try a different CD. some time the CD burner detect some smudge at the beginning area, then it tell you the CD is NG.
Try to clean the CD with CD cleaner and clean the CD also.

Some time I have to go through 2-3 CD in order to find one that will work.

Roxio cd creator 9 cannot burn a cd because it says drive not detected? How do i change this? you have a cd burner in your system? is it working for you to at least read cds on it? check the cd drive unit has a something that says "compac disk rewriteable" if not.. you don't have a cd burner only a cd rom drive that will only read cds but won't burn them
2. check device manager and look for the removable storage.. do you see the cd burner drive listed and in working condition?

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.

I want to move my itunes off my computer on to a disc ... I bought maxell CD-R music discs but I'm not able to burn the disc. The itune program keeps saying it can't read the disc

Couple of things.
First, turn the disk over and try it. It can only burn data on the data side.
Next, are you sure you have a CD burner in the computer? The way to check it go to computer propreties, device manager, and look for the CD Drive. Make sure it says R/W
Third, you might have a bad disk, try a different one.

What are you using for a burner program?
