My dvd burnerr is suddenly not burning to a dvd but it is to cd.

I recently formatted my pc. all is working well apart from this small thing, frustrating to say the least.
i can burn data discs to cd, mp3 discs, etc etc
when i try to burn to a dvd everything looks likeit has preformed as it should until you pull the disc out and it is still blank. my programs say burn successful but the disc.............blank, looks untouched.

CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning

I may add alot of times older equipment has a hard time reading burned cd's because when ever burning cd's the pits that are burnt into the cd are shallow. The faster the cd burns the more shallow it is... one thing you can try to do is burn at 2x in the WAV format cause it most diffenately will not read mp3 format being that old equipment. You may get lucky burning at 2x because the pits that it burns in the cdrom will be deeper. As the clarification said do use CD-R's. If this doesn't work at 2x chances are that equipment is just not going to be able to read a burnt cd period. Good Luck!!! I hope this works for you!!!

If you want an old CD Player to play a disc burnt on a PC, the file format has to me .wav. Most burning software will convert other formats to .wav files.

There are many different formats of music, so many it gives me a headache. I will try to help you as best I can. First I need to know what format you saved your music as in your "My Music" folder. ie: wma, mp3, wav etc... Now store bought cd's have a format all there own *.cda, If you use Microsoft media player to copy your original music cd's into your My Music folder you can tell it what format you want to have upon ripping your cd's. I believe that roxio offer's two types of disk burning as well
Data/Music make sure your using the correct platform.
