The laptop burned a disc, then ejected as usual. Another disc was place in the tray, inserted as normal but this time a cd was unable to be burned because the laptop did not recognize the disc or any other...


The automatic ejection takes place when the burn process has completed successfully. Have your tried another writable CD or DVD? If your laptop is not recognizing any more writable CDs/DVDs, then the problem might be a failed CD/DVD drive. Otherwise, it is probably a bad CD or DVD.
Hope this helps.

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 replaced the dvd rom/cd rw with dvd rw, but i am unable to write or burn dvds..........it still only possible with cds


Hi. You need to install the burning software that came with your DVD writer to make sure that you have the latest burning software compatible with your unit. If you are using older version of the burning software like Nero or PowerDVD, you need to uninstall the old version, re-start your PC and install the new software that came with your DVD burner. DVD burning is not possible using file explorer.

Dvd maker on aspire 3690


Hi Artmovements,

Well first off you need to get Acer to send you the disk... you are entitled by law to have it as it is not pre-installed.

However, I think the point here is not if you have the software, but if you have the right hardware.

You see, all computers can burn CD/DVD IF they have a DVD burner fitted. It sounds to me like you have a CD/DVD Combi-reader fitted which will let you listen to CD/DVD and will also burn CDs....but WILL NOT let you burn a DVD.

I checked the web for specs for your computer and all I could find seemed to back this up.... however if you can tell me what the computer says is fitted that would help.
You can find that info out by either looking in the manual it came with or by looking in your device manager and that will tell you what the CD/DVD is.

let me know ok... but I really do believe that you will find you have a combi unit and not a DVD burner. If so you need to buy one... and may I suggest you look at an external USB one, like the LG Super Multi...its good for price and is a nice fast and well made unit.

Good Luck and I hope this has helped you.
