I have never burned a CD. I have need of burning two tonight. What do I do?

are you burning a cd or dvd? burning a cd is pretty will do most of the work for you. put a blank cd in your cd rom/ dvd burner drive. it will ask you what you want to do with the blank usually asks you to format the ok.....a blank box will pop up....drag and drop your files to be burned into the blank box.....once you are done putting your media onto the disc....eject the disk...before the drive opens a box at the bottom of the screen says that the disc is being prepared for use on other computers. when it ejects, it should be can try to put it back in to the cd drive and see if your data/media files are on the disc. burning a dvd is alot more you have software for burning dvd media? if you do, they have help me files and tutorials........some more good also shows good tutorial vids on burning. just type in "burn a cd or dvd".

Does not read any discs

Hay, I have some solution.
Try to turn off the vista's burning feature.

It's not yours or anyones burners....just an update in vista which buggered the policies up

Go to your run command and type (start.....Run.....)
type gpedit.msc
Go to User configuration/Administrative templates/Windows components/Windows explorer
On the right pane, double click on "Remove CD burning features" tick the enabled button, then OK.
Reboot or logoff/logon to apply.

If your vista version does not have the gpedit function, do the following.
Open regedit, go to:


In the right pane, if it does not already exist, create a new 32-bit DWORD value. Name the new value as NoCDBurning, and assign the value data to 1.
Reboot or logoff/logon to apply.

This should fix the problem
it worked for me
pass this round

i think it also help for u better

I tried the solutions listed but none helped. I finally found a link to a Mirosoft link which solved my problem. I ran the 'Fix It' program and it solved my problem. Here is a link to the site:

I can't import anything or burn a disc

A cd rom or dvd rom are not functional as burners. You need cd burner or dvd burner.
your question is not clear as to what configuration you have, but confirming that your hardware is capable of burning cd's / dvd's is your first step.

My cd/dvd drive will not burn cd/dvd's properly. it goes through the motions, but the discs come out as blank, i was able to burn cds at 2x speed, but that was it. any movie, or anything else will go...

what kind of application you use for burning??

try it again then double check if you really choose the right path of th drive you want to use as burner..

then you are sure that you burn the music as audio cd not data well as the video cd not data cd..

because if you burn data cd only computers can read that.. not your aplliances like for example your dvd player,cd,etc.

Troubleshooting Burning DVD-R

First off, I would like to say that DVD-R is not necessarily better than DVD+R. Some older DVD burners would only recognize DVD-Rs and thus had to use that format. Now on with your problem. There is a possibility that you got a bad batch of DVD-Rs. I had that happen to me once. I had a 50 pack spindle and not a one of em worked. I got a different spindle of the same brand but a different lot, and they worked fine. Hope this helps. Good luck.
