How to burn a dvd from an acer laptop

The laptop should have come with CD/DVD burning software preloaded. Acer's specs page for your model says it comes with NTI Media Maker. The program will have help information available to guide you through, and you can find more help online. If you just want to write data files onto a DVD, the process typically is not much more than dragging files to a layout window and telling the program to burn the disc. This gives you a way to back up data, or to store movies in formats you can view on a computer (AVI, MPG, etc.).

On the other hand, if you're asking how to make a video DVD that will play in a regular DVD player like a commercial movie, maybe with features like menus or scene selection and such, the process for making that kind of DVD is more involved. You need some DVD authoring software. NTI may offer that capability, but I'll admit I have never looked.

In most cases, the software that comes preloaded on computers is a limited version of some commercial product. The computer manufacturers get paid to include the program, and the software company hopes you'll buy the full version when you discover the limitations. If you don't want to pay for software, there are free, more full-featured programs available for downloading.

For general CD and DVD burning, I use CDBurnerXP. To make video DVDs, I use a program called DVDStyler. Both are open-source, meaning they are 100% free to download and use, and they both offer a lot of features.

I have a samsung cd r rw sw 240b installed (WinXP) and it plays/burns CDs & DVDs but won't burn data/video on DVDs. What to do?

find it hard to believe that this device will burn dvd's as it will only burn cd's you require a dvd writing device to burn and read dvd's data or video with 3rd party software such as nero or nti

I would suggest that you should try out NERO Burning software instead. I have been using it for years and it works like magic.
Even if you just need something very urgent, you can download and use the trial version with the trial key.

It is a very self-explanatory software and shouldn't give you any problem when install it.

The link to the trial version is:

Kindly let me know how it goes.

Good luck.

Burning problems

Windows can only write to CDR disks in its internal drivers, and to burn DVD's requires a 3rd party program such as NERO or NTI.

i assume your dvd is working ok.
to burn, acer give you application (NTI cd-dvd) to burn cd/dvd, i amnot sure the complete name, but for sure is NTI...
You should have this software when you reload/cpr the operating system.
