1)change the burner software
2)make sure your cd is 700mb or 4.7 -writable data is equal or less than from the capacity of the cd
3)if not solved check the warranty to service

Its pluggen into my laptop but its an unknown device and windows media player will not let me burn songs onto a cd


Did you put a disk in the drive first before trying to burn? if not you do that first then Media player will detect it saying unknown media select cd or DvD then select format for songs mp3 if thats what you want and then copy your songs on to the disk. If you need more help let me know.

Does not recognize disk


Either:
* the disk you're inserting is not "empty" -- try it on a different computer;
* you should try a different manufacturer of "blank" disks;
* you need to upgrade the "firmware" inside your CD-writer, to recognize more brands of "blank" media;
* the CD-reader is malfunctioning -- when you "cancel" the burn-attempt, and insert a commercially-produced program CD or commercially-produced audio CD, can those disks be properly read?
* you have two CD/DVD devices in your computer, and you're inserting the "blank" disk into the "wrong" device.

CD/DVD will not burn DVD


Did you tell CDBurnerXP that you want to burn a CD? or to burn a DVD?

Does this happen with _EVERY_ "blank" disk that you insert, or just one disk?

Can your DVD-RW _read_ a previously-recorded CD? DVD?
If not, then that hardware is suspect.

Depends what software you are using to burn. Use Nero. then select dvd or cd or whatever. You must state what you are burning onto - you cant create a cd then put a blank dvd into the drive - common sense

Above burner not detecting blank CD-R disk


have you tried cleaning cd lense and if you are using nero burning rom earlier version update to latest and try any other brand of cd-r's to see if it is the make-up of the disks as some manufactors use different ways to make cd's coating and asus have on their website all media covered by the cd burners in the last resort change to a burner that is compatable with the media you wish to use the burners have come down in price so I would sugest geting a dvd burner combo doing cd's and dvd's
