First things first my friend:

you sad it, you try to put a lamborgini engine on a volky of 1970! so you have to move for a new PC, since new DVD burners and DVD ROM, use more advance internal features, speed, IDE enhancesments.
OR you can refortmat your OS and install the new device, check your BIOS for LBA changes, and 32 bit acces modes. (it help)

Burn cds


Hi first thing go to

start
control panel
printers and other hardware
system (on left side)
hardware
device manager
DVD / CD rom drives


does it show up as a burner? DVD-RW or CD-RW
if not it may have a wrong driver installed If windows does not recognize it as a burner it will never work untill you get past the driver issue.

If the correct driver is installed
should be pretty simple there are many ways to burn
right click on a file and select SEND TO and send it to your burner usually drive D add all your files then select BURN FILES

or if they are media files you can use Windows Media Player

if all else fails track down a copy of Nero burning rom software or Roxio easy media creator.

Finally having said all that are you using the correct media?
if you try to burn files using a DVD on a non DVD burner it won't work.

also older burners were finicky and you had to watch your + and -'s

meaning if a DVD-R isn't working then try a DVD+R

if its an older burner you may consider upgrading it, a DVD burner can be bought on ebay or newegg for about $50 and its only a 2 cable install so its not to hard.

Another more extreme solution is to save all your files which you should be keeping in the "my documents" folder and do a system restore. (requires the factory restore disks)

This is very time intensive and can be VERY tricky but if the computer has been running for 3 plus years and is running slow it could probably use a fresh start and anything that has been corrupted over the years gets wiped away.

Hope that helps

Dell PC unable to read blank discs


There is a easy solution! Buy a new DVD burner...

I went through 2 DVD burners in one year (I bought a really cheap "mad dog" DVD burner...never again to say the least). I saw a "insert disc", even though there was already a disc in the burner, and thought "I'm not paying for a new burner, I'll fix this one...". I eventually got it to work again, but all that I got was corrupt disc after corrupt disc.

I'll bet that it still reads CD's fine doesn't it? Yeah? Well then, trust me, buy a new one. It'll save you time, money (you won't waste all those DVD/CD's), headaches, moments of depression, anxiety, frustration, and your sanity.

Except no substitutes of a solution. Don't go through what I did...

I also suggest ccleaner (freeware) from filehippo.com to clean out the system and not only run the "Analyze/Clean", but also verify "Tools/Startup" and uncheck ANY program that you are unsure of.

Dvd burner not writing discs; - I have tried numerous programs to write data files to DVD. I have tried Nero, Sonic, Roxio, AstroBurn and I have also tried a new drive. I started with a Pioneer BD-Rom/DVD...


Hello Mike, hi. I can trace your problem to the freezing up of your PC, which may possibly be caused by a faulty memory module, try replacing the memory with new ones, (well you may need to buy) and swap the old ones. test again to see if the program freezes. = )

Installed a new dvd burner for Hp computer. Running Windows XP. Installed Nero 8 Software. Door doesn't always open when button is pushed or after burning a dvd. Computer also has another cd/dvd drive....


it has to do with a new hardware installation process....check IDE cable that they are correctly connected and try to check system setup so that the CMOS identifies both, primary & secondary devices....if not, u need to install a driver for the newly installed one....

Drive does read audio cd but not dvd.writer also can't burn any.


If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.

Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:

Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...

CD burner quits while burning


Hi There,

I sugesst that you look at the recent hotfixesyou have installed. I would install SP3, and take from there. I am sure that you have tried buring at a slower speed.

No the burner will not burn out, but could do with a clean, you can buy cleaning disk from a pc shop..

Please let me know how you get on - good luck

regards,

Philip

Wont burn cds , files , etc


well it could be many reasons why it wont write your burner but first what software you are using for burning. it happens to me before using media player when i try to burn music. the reason was i haven't configure my media player to use my dvd burner for burning because i have dvd burner and a cd burner installed. Now maybe you try to reinstall it using your dvd driver the one which with your dvd burner when you first bought it.
