Re: reconise discs

Hey there zero78, If you open up Nero Start Smart, and then Tools, and then Nero Info Tool. Here you will see what Nero reads as your drives abilities and limitations. Check the supported read and write features to see if they match your cd. Also, are the CDs you try to play burned or purchased and if burned, are they multi-session. Many players have problems with multi-session disks. Good Luck!

I can't burn dvds with my dvd rom

DVD ROM will only play DVD's. In order to Burn DVD's you will need a DVDRW which is a reader and a writer (burner)

DVD writer problem

try cleaning up the system. Defragmentation in safe mode will probably help too (i've seen high fragmentation over 10% really mess a system up to where it will not even complete a basic burn). Get rid of the resource hog called Norton- go get AVG free edition- YES IT IS COMPLETELY FREE!
also- try using Nero burning software- if it works for you you can buy it but they give you a free version on their website that works GREAT for everything and can test to tell you what the problem burning is (it has dignostic tools in it.)
if you are still unable to get it working- e-mail for further support options
good luck!

It reads CDs, but DVDs: "Please insert a disk in drive.."

DVD SOHD-16P9S drive doesn't read any kind of CD or DVD

hi,there is no problem in drivers .
check the hardware parts
there are 2 possibilities in your case
1.the laser beam which reads the dvd or cds is malfunctioning
2.ensure that the cable & buses are properly connected

in case laser beam is damaged you got to get it repaired for proper functioning

all the best

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds

It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

Burning images to DVDs

you need to launch the lightscribe software, insert the disk upside down (opposite to what we use when burning data into disk), select the image in the software and start burning.

i think your drive is either disabled or not configured properly
go to the properties of my computer and then hardware then device manager then enable it
if the device is enable then you check the driver settings and update your driver

My writemaster sh-w162 will reconise cds but not dvds can you help, im using library computer .it will copy or burn cds not dvds

actually the problem of your writemaster is the speedometer or what we call Laser Eye. This Laser Eye is damage but not totally can read only CDs but not DVDs, you can no longer burn a DVDs on it, i experience to that, only CDs can read and write on it. This time you buy a new DVD Writer to replace on it, or if warranty you can send it back to the Store you buy. I tell you it is still not working.. Just buy a new one. Good Luck!

My dvdrw/r cannot write anything. can you solve this problem? i cannot write anything on any blank DVDs. i can write on blank CDs. But i cannot do the same on the blank DVDs. How can i solve this? Please...

QUE : are you sure you are using a DVD multi- recorder or have you successfully write any DVD disc with your writer ?
IF YES : then check the lens ........ sometimes the weakness of the lens causes that to happen......
you are to clean the lens with a lens cleaning liquid and try the writing stuff again..... am sure this would work or have the drive replaced...
