Some DVD players simply don’t support these types of discs. Others may play VCDs or SVCDs only if the discs were authored with certain settings, which the VCD/SVCD/DVD creation software may point out. The same goes for DVD playback software, although the developer may provide a patch or plug-in to enable this functionality.

First, consult the DVD player’s documentation for VCD/SVCD support. If your DVD player allows firmware updates, as some DVD recorders do, try updating it. Update your DVD playback software if applicable.

Also, you may find that different burning software, even from the same developer, may make discs compatible with your player. For an Apex DVD player, as an example, we were able to create working SVCDs with NeroVision Express, but not with Nero Express. Both titles come in the Nero 6 and 7 Ultra Edition suites.

Try burning the disc at a slower speed. Also, certain brands of CD-R may work better than others for this application. Roxio says that some players cannot read recordable media at all. Other sources say that CD-RWs might work better in some players.

Read up on your disc authoring software’s settings for VCDs and SVCDs in its help file, settings menus, or support section of the developer’s Web site. Try different settings related to compatibility. If all else fails, try the ones that will make “non-standard” discs.

Do my compaq presario cq50-209 have a dvd burner?


The easiest way to tell is to open up "My Computer" and look at the drive. If it says "DVD-R," "DVR-RW," or maybe even "DVD+R," you have a DVD burner. If it says DVD-RAM, then it just reads DVD's.

Hii sir my dvd rom drive is not able to write any data but it is reading data.


Hi,
Please check if you have the dvd writer in your laptop. If you only have a DVD-Combo drive in you system then you would only be able to read DVDs, you wouldnot be able to write DVDs.
You will see symbols like DVD-R and DVD-RW. If you have DVD-R then you will never be able to burn DVDs with the drive that you have, bur if you have DVD-RW then you will be able to write them.
Please let me know what type of drive you have.
Hope it Helps
Regards

You can also confirm the same by looking at the drive externally

Burn DVD


Read on your optical drive. If it burns CD's it reads CD-RW. In order to burn DVD's it needs ro read DVD-RW. If it reads DVD-ROM it will only read DVD's not burn them.

A good external burner is Plextor. You can get one at Walmart, or you can check Ebay and find an internal to replace the one in your machine. They are fairly easy to replace, and you won't have a bulky external to carry around.

My Dual Layer DVD±RW for my presario v2410us will not read CDs


It happens in combo drives where the cd reading wont work and still read or burn dvd's or vice versa. If you tried to use a cd cleaner and still didnt work then the cd reader is already busted. it either you replace it a new one or not.
