    Hi devocap,



    Thank you for your help! I don't think I have Nero installed.

    I downloaded a free trial of Nero and everything worked out perfectly. My DVD is burned and Nero has a lot of interesting functionality. I may just wind up purchasing a license.



    You're the best!

Hey there gsb1412, well it appears that is your problem. There are also other programs such as ConvertXtoDVD or Winavi that have burning programs as well, so I would suggest you look for any video conversion programs on your computer, as they may also burn. This Nero program should be readily available. It should be provided by a dealer selling the dvd burner, or perhaps by a kind person with a copy at home. The burner should be plug and play, so I would not worry about a driver for it. Once you get the program, I will be glad to help you get started with it .Let me know. Good Luck!

New computer, never used a burner before. how to use the dvd burner?


Purchase or download free burning software. There is a number of different softwares to choose for your DVD burning needs. SwiftDisc Burning Wizard Premium, Xilisoft DVD Creator and Nero 9 come with a free trial. The purchasing price is less than $100, as of 2009. Ashampoo Burning Studio Free and BurnAware Free are available if you do not want to buy the software.

  • 2 Insert a DVD into the burner. The DVD-RWs offer the option of erasing the DVD or adding more application to the disk. Do not use this type of disk for playing movies in a regular DVD player or music in a stereo. DVD-R disks are non-erasable. Take extra care when burning on this type of disk, any errors or accidentally opening the drive will cause the disk to stop functioning.
  • 3 Run your burning software. When you insert the disk, a window will appear. Press the "X" in the top right corner. Click on the "Start Menu" icon. Go to "Programs" then click on the burning application folder. You will have different options depending on the program. Typically, you will have the choice of burning data, videos or music.

    In Roxio Creator 10, I attempt to burn a disk of a slide show. I receive an error message 8004520C When I check production it reports no problem. This is repeatable.


    Generally, defragmenting your hard disk will resolve this issue. To defragment your computer:

    1. Go to Start--> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> Disk Defragmenter.
    2. When the Disk Defragmenter window opens, choose Defragment.

    If defragmentation doesn't resolve the issue, burn your project as a data file, and then burn your project as a data disc using Disc Copier or Creator Classic. To create a disc image/data file:

    1. After clicking the Burn button, the Burn Project window opens.
    2. You have two data burning options:
      • Image file - this option will save your project as an .ISO file. To burn this file you will need to use the Burn Image option in Creator's Copy section.
      • Folder Set - burning a folder set will create a Video_TS folder that you can burn using Creator Classic. Burning a folder set to DVD will create a fully functional DVD. Do NOT rename the Video_TS folder other wise it will not play! Simply place it in a folder that is the name of your project if you need to keep track.

    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,
    Regards,
    Raspal

    Disc error "playback feature may not be available on this disc"


    Hello arnita2211,

    This error message is due to an improper format, that your dvd player can't handle. To correct this you need to use a program such as nero and in nero is a program called nero vision, that will recode the movie file into a dvd playable format.

    You can download a trial of nero here
    http://www.nero.com/enu/downloads-nero9-trial.php
    You will have to purchase a license when the trial ends. Sorry we cannot give you a serial key for this as it is Illegal.

    Thank you for trying Fixya!

    Computer internal dvd player/recorder won't record. it will play, though. I also have an external player/recorder that won't record either but plays. The internal dvd burner gets a message no recordable...


    if both are malfunctioning it indicates an application error. Uninstall then defrag and cleanup your harddisk from system tools, then re-install your burning softeware. If your O/S is an old installation it might be time to try a fresh install. Also, I would clean both drive lenses with isopropyl and cotton buds just to make sure that is not the issue. My feeling is that you need to reinstall your O/S(windows)
