The Slimtype (LITE-ON) dvd burners supplied with the model 5100 are prone to defects. You can slam as much software at it as you like; it won't work properly. I tried nero 8 legit and spent 4 months attempting to contact Tech? support? with no luck before I put my foot down and demanded an RMA-Return Material/merchandise Authorization. Bottom line suggestion: send it back or use it as a boat anchor.

Need to know a bit more like codecs installed , burning software etc.But think if you install program like nero it should solve all your problems cos nero installs all you need to burn media.

Can't burn pass over 78 min on my burner

CDs can only store 800 Mb, which is exactly 78 minutes. If you need to burn more data than that onto a disk then you will need to burn DVDs with a DVD burner.
Please rate, Thanks!

I cannot burn a music CD from Napster. My blank CD is a CD-R. Do I need RW?

No you do not need RW. With the CD-R you can only burn to it once. With RW you can burn to it multiple times plus erase it.

Most cd burners work with CD+R and CD-R but it is best to be sure.

Be sure to try more than one of your CD-R discs. I've brought out a new cd burner on a warranty repair in the past and found that the customers cd burner was fine and when a different CD-R was tried they were able to burn onto a cd without a problem.
