Your CD burner lens may be going blind. That means a hardware problem. If you try other CD burning software and it sstill acts up, replace the burner.

Im a bit clueless but i have a downloaded movie on my pc and want to be able to put it on a disc, i have a compaq 6720s , does it have a burner inside it? what do i need to buy or install to be able to use...


I'm going to assume you are using a Windows operating system if you are using Windows media player. Windows media player does not come with the ability to burn or rip dvds. If your computer came with a dvd burner installed it should have also come with the burning software. You need to look for software labeled "Nero" or "Roxio" or another name that alludes to the fact that it will burn your dvds for you. Most of the software is pretty user friendly and if you need help using it you can just Google the software name and what your problem is and you can usually find an answer.

Now the tricky part is getting the video to a format that will allow you to burn it to dvd AND be played through a standard dvd player.

In order for your video file to be played in a standard DVD player it will need to be encoded in the MPEG-2 format. You will need software to do this for you. An excellent program would be "DVD Flick"

LifeHacker has put out an excellent tutorial explaining how to use DVD Flick here:

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

I download video from my flip video, but I cannot burn to DVD-RW...it says to insert CD which I have already done


What CD are you using to Burn then movie?

Get a Blank DV Rewriteable CD (make sure its blank)

Format the DVD CD by right clicking it from Windows Explorer and follow the instructions. (this should not be neccessary especially if its a blank CD)

Use a normal copy and paste from Windows Explorer to copy the movie file or folder into the DVD drive.

this process absolves the issue of media formats and portability. Also most CD DVD Burning Softwares are not compatible with some players.

Try to use different program to burn your dvds, try to use Nero, but this msg also means that Your DVd drive is not burner double check from the device manager if its says read only this means it cannot burn, it has to say write too.
