Re: burns cds

This could be several issues.
Firstly there could be a format compatability error.
if the burner is looking for Wavs and finding MP3s, then you,ll need to convert the formats, for compatability.
Secondly this could be a copyright protection function, if the cd your trying to copy is protected, then the writer will refuse to copy the files. ( can Sometimes happen if downloaded )
I,d suggest locating some better Software, for your writer.
Or re-installing your original packet-writing software that came with the writer.
Hope this points you in the right direction.

The drive plays DVDs and can read doc files, but

This problem is normal and exists with many CD/DVD drives.
On some of the drives, if you put in blank discs and try to open the disc in My Computer or Windows Explorer, Windows displays no contents or a blank disc. Whereas on other drives, you get the error message that you mentioned about incorrect function.

What software are you using to burn CDs or DVDs? Are you able to burn CDs but not DVDs or you can't burn both the discs? Did you try a CDs with a different make/manufacturer? Some drives refuse on some disc makes. Try another disc and another writing speed, or try the lowest writing speed available with your software.

Hope that helps,

Cannot Burn (HP ProBook 4510s CDDVDW TS-L633M)

Yes no store bought brand is setup to be great quality. You will have to find either archive quality discs so that they have high compatibility and quality ratings or just by small amounts of brands till you find one that will work for you.

Toshiba laptop won't burn cd from itunes

I had the same promblem. What you should do is make a serperate file on you desktop and drag all of your music that you burn or download to that folder first. Drag it to Itunes after that. Now, you only have to drag the songs to Itunes if you want them on there for you iPod. Take the songs from the folder, and drag them to windows media players burn list. Insert a blank disc and you should be good. Keep in mind that you can only do this if you put downloaded or burned music to the created folder first. If you take it to Itunes first, you will have to re-download or re-burn your music again.
Hopefully this helped you guys.
