Sounds like your burning software may be corrupted. Did it ever work? If so, you might try a restore to the date it last worked. Otherwise, check device manager in Control panel for any nasty yellow checks, and fix as described. You cant use microsoft's buring software--you have to have a good burning program, which likely came with your computer. Find out what burning software you have-- I recommend downloading Belarc Advisor, a free program which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software (with their unique codes), but will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what you have, if it came with the computer, you have to seek a download at the computer manufacturer's website, as it may be a special program not related to the burning software purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their website for upgrades.

Have a dell inspiron cd-rw/dvd drive combo but it does not burn dvd only cd


Your drive is not a DVD burner. The way you can tell is that it is called a CD-RW/DVD drive, not a CD-RW/DVD-RW drive.

My burner will not burn cd's anymore. It still plays cd's fine as well as play and burn dvd's fine. I see no errors in hardware setup. It is a nec dvd +- RW ND 6650A that came with my Dell Inspiron E1705.


The CD Burner / Player / DVD Burner are all different heads. If the Dell Inspiron E1705 is an older model it is most likely you have reached the end of it's usable life for the CD burner part. If it is new the CD burner is most likely defective and hopefully warrantied. Otherwise these CD/DVD units can be replaced relatively inexpensively (as compared to buying a new laptop).

Dell inspiron e1705 when i burn a dvd it wont play back it says the playback feature may not be avaliable


okay.. it sounds like you may be burning a multisession disc

if you can get to the "burn settings" select the "master copy" option instead of the "multi-session disc" option..
if it only says that playback MAY not be available, try it anyway see what happens. however if you try it in a computer then you should get it working reguardless as a multi-session disc is apparently "open" for information to be written on at a later time...

Good luck

Dell inspiron dvd burner....m6790


the read on the drive may be faulting, especially if taking forever to rip cd's, but then that can be different on each cd as some tracks are read easily the others, not so. The other problem possibility, may be related to both ripping and dvd playing in that you are running a little low on memory, the minimum amount needed with XP for simple tasks is 512MB, so see what you have installed. tests only normally check read and write speeds, and not neccasarilly whether your drive is about to fail or not. If the drive is faulty, then a replacement dvd burner will be around $65, not a lot, and you can use any make of burner to replace it.
