Question about Acer Computers & Internet
What it sounds like you may have a player but only a burner for cd's not dvd's. You would still be able to play them just not write or record. So the first thing you need to do is check your player, if it should burn dvd's you may have to run a fix/repair program for the player or reinstall the drivers for the player. Try these items and go from there. Good Luck!

If it is reading CD's & DVD's and writing to CD's it seems that your device is OK along with the drivers for it. Try using a different burning engine if you can (it may be a software issue) and I would definitely look into a different media (DVD R/W disks). Make sure that your DVD burner supports both formats of DVD's (dual format) + & -- disks and make sure you have the appropriate ones that are compatible. Try a different disk manufacturer, Memorex seems to be the worst out there. Many problems with DVD burning is usually the Media being substandard. Take a look in your device manager (right click on MY COMPUTER, go to PROPERTIES, and then DEVICE MANAGER. Look for any yellow exclamation or question marks. If present, click on it and look at the drivers for the drive. They possibly need to be updated or rolled back. Likewise, sometimes you can right click on the device (DVD/CD drive) in the device manager and uninstall it. When you reboot, Windows will detect the "new" hardware and install the proper drivers from the System folder (if they are not corrupt) and everything should be fine. Installing and uninstalling software can cause problems with devices as well. I hope this helps and good luck!
