Problems recording DVDs

I have a combo DVD writer/CD writer, Lite-On DVDRW9, and Sonic Record Now 7. That came on my Compaq, Presario SR123ONX
Using Movie maker, I have saved the photo and music creation to my computer using setting DV-AVI (NTSC). I then send it to Record Now I burn it and it verifies it but it will not play on any of the DVD Players. I have used DVD+R and DVD-R all the players say that it is unreadable.
Any suggestions.

Re: Problems recording DVDs

Will it play on your computer?
Some older DVD players will not play this DVD...
Also, make sure you do not have multiple Burning software applications on your PC.

Compaq presario cd-rw/dvd-rom combo drive does not recognize dvds. the driver is installed but dvds do not play.

you may check youe BIOS settings by restarting the pc and repeatedly press F2. Then check your PC or system settings wherein there is a list of peripherals such as Floppy Disk, CD/DVD drive, Network Adapter etc. Those peripherals will tell you if they are enabled or not. use your arrow keys to select and check if the CD/DVD drive is enabled. Then press F10 to exit and hope that CD/DVD would work...

Have a Compaq Computer. My tower has two places wherein discs can be inserted for various reasons. - Can you tell me which insertion site i.e., top or bottom that will enable playing a CD - commercial...

Probably both will play a cd but sure that one will only record a DVD -/+ or a CD and the DVD recorder will play DVD's. If the CD player is a DVD player it will play DVD's and CD's but not record.

My dvd-writer/cd-writer combo will not open?

look a tiny hole in the front of the CD/DVD drive use a paper clip to pull out the tray, when you have the tray out use the EJECT bottom in the drive to close and wait 3 seconds and press again to open, do this at least 3 times.

My lite-on DVD writer is not reading any dvd's as well not writing any DVD's while it is good for CD's..... What is the problem?? How can i correct my DVD writer

Hi Please try and use a different brand of DVD discs. DVD disc quality is sometimes an issue with lite-on drives Also check that you have updated drivers and your media burning software is installed correctly. Again if your using NERO this can be a problem. Try using any other burning software One other thing to try when recording DVDs set the recording speed to lowest Many Thanks Andy

DVD is not being detected by combo drive

Hi Imran,
Sadly this is a fairly common problem with combo drives. In all likelihood, it will cost you more to have the drive repaired than to replace it.
I will suggest purchasing a dvd writer to replace the combo drive.
They are fairly inexpensive.

DVD Writing Problem

The specs on your PC can be found by clicking here. From what I read on this page, you can record CDs, but only read DVDs. So, to burn DVDs, you would need to purchase and install a DVD burner. They are pretty inexpensive right now, so if someone in your area is handy with PC stuff, they could install one within 10 minutes for you.

Good Luck

My Samsung CDRW/DVD SM352F plays commercial DVDs but will not recognise an inserted DVD/RW for recording picture files and shows properties as O bytes used space and O bytes free space. What is wrong?

the drive you are using is called a combo drive

DVD WRITER is not included in this combo...

only cd could be read and also written
but is case of DVD , it could only be read..
