Hi,
you,ve probably got a spec of dust on the laser head ?
If you took it to a shop, have they swapped the drive over, and replaced it with a dodgy one.
Shops are re-nown for doing this.

I have a Dell inspiron 53os the cd keeps ejecting with error 2131 when trying to burn from my playlist. Ive been using Maxell CD-R's. Can you please help with this problem...


Welcome to Fixya.

Error 2131 is an error that is encountered with iTunes trying to burn a cd or dvd.

The Fix:

Update your drivers. I suggest downloading Device Doctor, a safe freeware that scans your machine and will look for the latest driver updates of the computer's devices.

1. Click Download.
2. Click Save.
3. Go to My Documents > Downloads Folder.
4. Click Device Doctor's .exe file. Installation will start.
5. After the installation, the application will scan for driver updates. Just click download.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to come back if you have further questions.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I have an error 25 on my dvd recorder


Technically, E25 is a copy-protection error, but I have some additional background on this issue. On the one hand, it could be a legitimate copy-protection error - you are trying to record from a copy-once or copy-protected source - this is especially true if you are trying to record from a Cable/Satellite Box that has a DVR box - since copying to the DVR is considered the first "copy," the Magnavox will not allow you to make a "second" copy.

On the other hand, Magnavox/Funai players see all programs recorded in V mode (as opposed to VR mode) as "copy-prohibited". It records all +R discs in VR mode automatically, so the solution in this case would be to record on a compatible -R disc (or vice versa).

There are two simple fixes for this issue in either case:
1) If you are using a +R disc, switch to a -R disc. If you are using a -R disc, switch to a +R disc. Simply switching the disc type will "fix" Magnavox recorders (long story).
2) If your TV has a "Video Out" or "Monitor Out" (most TV's don't), you can connect a yellow video cable from the OUT of the TV to the Video IN on the back of the Magnavox. This will permanently resolve your problem by fooling the recorder.

Here is additional info about the type of disc to get:
IDiscs that have been tested and are proven to be compatible with this recorder:
VERBATIM DVD+R 8x, VERBATIM DVD+RW 4x
VERBATIM DVD-R 8x, VERBATIM DVD-RW 2x, MAXELL DVD-R 16x, JVC DVD-RW 4x
IWe strongly recommend for good recording quality:
TDK DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, SONY DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, MAXELL DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, SONY DVD+RW 4x,
MAXELL DVD-R 8x/16x, MAXELL DVD-RW 4x

Good Luck!

Hitachi -LG GCC-4481B DVD CD-RW


If the firmware was never updated, it can cause this.
A tool like Nero infotool will show the drive firmware version or you can scan your registry for "4481" and locate an entry in <HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\DeviceClasses>
that shows the drive model and a numeric fw version.

You can go to HP http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?lc=en&cc=us&softwareitem=pv-28110-1
or to Dell http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/FIRMWARE/Others/Dell-Dimension-8300-HLDS-GCC4481-B-Firmware-28012005.shtml
and use their firmware update.

Dvd player wont recognize newly burned dvd


Give this a try : write a DVD at 1x speed (lowest speed) and test it on your laptop. If this works ok then either use better media or lower (e.g half) your writing speed........
