Re: my DVD writer is not burning

Do you have the right burning software, eg nero, and you need to have the right dvd type, eg dvd-r etc.

How old is your dvd burner? What model?

Read your DVD writer instructions. Likely all you need to do is choose the format of the DVD which you'd like. The instructions are likely in your computer--otherwise, either use the Help on your burning software to find what to do, or go to it's website to find the manual.

SOURCE: dvd writer does not burn on raw file system cds

What OS are you using? I doubt it is the burner. I have the same model burner and it burns everything I try to burn just fine. It works on both my XP SP2 installation and the OS X86 Leopard 10.5.5 installation. I have burned video, data and bootable OS DVDs and CDs in both operating systems.

It may just be Nero. You could try Alcohol 120% or Ultra ISO.

I have a HT-DT-ST- RW/DVD GCC 4480B it will burn cd-r but it wont even read dvd-r I just want to burn dvd-r but it wont even read blank one


Sorry, but this device is not a DVD-writer.

This device _should_ read (non-blank) DVD media.
If it does not, then the cheapest solution is to spend $40
to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

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.

Reading disks but wont burn them

The only "help" is to purchase a new "internal" CD-writer, disassemble the casing, remove the "dead" CD-writer, insert the new one, and reassemble the casing.

Writer will read but not burn

Can you remove the burning software and try to burn by dragging files using the built in windows xp imapi? Check the event viewer for any system events around the time when you are having problems. Also try following these instructions:;en-us;314060 If you have another pc you can try the burner with, you would be able to rule out software issues.
