You can only burn DVD's with a dvd-rw.
A CD-RW DVD will only play a dvd and write CD's

    If you have a Divx movie, or a smaller DVD movie AND your player can handle Divx yes. Another cool trick is to use a DVD stripping tool to decrease the size of the movie you want to copy, make an image of that file and use a standard CD. DVD Shrink works for this too.
    Sometimes you will need to use 2 or more CD's for a movie but I have made playable DVD movies with CD's with no problems.

A CD-RW DVD will not be able to write data on DVD. You should get a DVD writer for your PC. Many computers ship with drives that can read data or play movies from digital versatile discs, or DVDs. Often these drives can play other types of optical media, meaning discs read by laser light, including Blu-ray discs or compact discs. If your computer doesn't come with such a drive, you can buy one to physically install in your computer or buy an external one connected with a cable, often to a USB port. Also, you need a DVD burning software to burn a playable DVD. You can try Leawo DVD Creator. This program supports to convert and burn other popular formats like WMV, AVI, MTS, MOV, MKV, FLV, etc. to DVD format.

My tsst corp cd-writer/dvd-ROM combo only has cd r in recording tab how do i add a dvd-r to recording tab


In regards to adding the DVD-R tab to your burning options alot of this has to do with the burning software that you are using.

So I would like to know what program you are using and if it came with your DVD burner. Also I would like to know if you ever had the DVD-R option before.

My tsst corp cdw/dvd ts-h492a dose not recginize dvd-r help

This could be due to various reasons. First check whether the inserted dvd-r is working with any other system? if yes, Clean the drive lens using lens cleaner CD/DVD. Still you are facing the problem, then there could be a problem with the lens allignment and need to repair the same with the help of local expert engineers or nearest service center experts or buy a new Drive if repairing cost is more than the new one.

Cannot burn to ts h492a with dvd-r then play on

Hi, It seems that you are not going through the right procedure of burning DVD movies. The first step before burning is to convert the movie file format to DVD format. I recommend "Format Factory" to convert as it is an open source free software and works wonderful. Once the conversion is over, you can now go ahead and burn it with good DVD burning software Burn4free.

could be your player is very choosy with the kind of brand you are using. try using other dvd recordable disk brand. to burn a dvd you will be needing a special writing software for dvd. you cannot use a dvd if you just want to burn a cd. you should only use a recordable cd.
