Cd burner quit working properly

I have been burning cd's for 2 years with this computer. I was making 2 discs, it burned the first one fine, when i started the burn on the second disc, the estimated time quadrupled and i haven't been able to burn a disc since. I have used Windows Media Player, Sonic, and Nero and all 3 have the same problem. The information i am trying to copy is fine, but when I put the blank disc in, it seems to start to burn, but its going soooo slow and when it finishes the discs are not readable. I have tried everything else I can find. I have uninstalled the drive, purchased and installed a new drive, uninstalled the new drive, system restore, etc. The drive will read any cd/cdrom it just won't burn. After the supposed "burn" is completing, the blank disc looks like it's been burned but is unusable. CD player says "No Disc". Please help......Mac OH, I'm running windowsXP

After running a CD burn, PC treats it as a blank disc


Try putting the burned disc into another computer to see if it reads it. If not then it could be an issue with the disc burner itself. The laser could be going bad and that would cause the burner not to burn discs properly.

Drive does read audio cd but not dvd.writer also can't burn any.


If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.

Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:

Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...

CD burner quits while burning


Hi There,

I sugesst that you look at the recent hotfixesyou have installed. I would install SP3, and take from there. I am sure that you have tried buring at a slower speed.

No the burner will not burn out, but could do with a clean, you can buy cleaning disk from a pc shop..

Please let me know how you get on - good luck

regards,

Philip

Hi : I have a HP Pavillion a1218n (P4) computer that is about three years old. I would like to burn data to 8.5 GB Dual Layer - Single sided DVD storage media disks. My CD/DVD burner : burns, flip, burn...


Greetings,
Your dvd drive is not capable of burning a dual layer disc. You need to have a burner that is capable of sending the laser through to the second layer of the disc. That said you can get a DL burner for around 30 dollars. Click HERE to see one from Newegg.com.
I am not sure what you mean by 'burns, flip, burn dvds.' but if you make another comment I will respond.
Take Care,
-WN

Wont burn cds , files , etc


well it could be many reasons why it wont write your burner but first what software you are using for burning. it happens to me before using media player when i try to burn music. the reason was i haven't configure my media player to use my dvd burner for burning because i have dvd burner and a cd burner installed. Now maybe you try to reinstall it using your dvd driver the one which with your dvd burner when you first bought it.

My cd rom drive doesn't work


I'd reckon at 4.5 years you've had an extremely good run from your CDROM. You could always try a lens cleaner which you can get from any good music shop but judging by your unit's age you deserve a newer and faster Unit. Maybe a CD burner or even a DVD burner. They are much cheaper these days. My first single speed CDROM cost me $999.00 I can now buy a 52 speed CD Burner for $49.00 BMW
