Sorry if this is teaching granny to **** eggs, but do you have any 3rd party DVD writing software installed such as Nero ?
Windows does not have any inbuilt DVD drive drivers so just because a PC comes with a DVD writer, it doesnt mean it is capable of writing DVDs without some 3rd party software.
If you look in Explorer or My Computer, Windows will correctly identify your drive as a DVD drive, however it only has the drivers for a CD drive, so cant enable the DVD functions.

Two reasons, one the setups do not allow the type of CD you are using, so make sure you are using the correct CD, Second the drive is corrupted and need to reinstall it, delete the driver and reboot the computer, download and install new driver.

I am trying to finalize a DVD-R after burning a movie. I can't find "close" or "finalize" anywhere. The DVD-R movie is burned but wont play on my Sony DVD player.


Have you tried "right-click" and clicking on 'eject' to have the DVD finalized? What program are you using to burn the 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.

Optiarc DVD ad-7563a will burn cd but not read a dvd


Try using a good wuality dvd cleaner. After that use a known good dvd to see if the drive will play it. If it does then try burning a dvd. Hopefully this will fix it. If not then there may be internal lens issues with the drive and it would be cheaper to replace than to fix. Hope this helps.

Wont burn cds , files , etc


well it could be many reasons why it wont write your burner but first what software you are using for burning. it happens to me before using media player when i try to burn music. the reason was i haven't configure my media player to use my dvd burner for burning because i have dvd burner and a cd burner installed. Now maybe you try to reinstall it using your dvd driver the one which with your dvd burner when you first bought it.
