Be more clear, according to your explanation it seems that your are trying to write a data on a already burned cd . you can not burn a cd twice until you make the disk multisession .

With the hp dvd burner 1040r I have, I've burnt hundreds of cds on the same eMac I've had for quite awhile (I think it was made in like '02). One day, my burner just quit burning. It will read and play...


It is hard to believe it lasted this long, sometimes the write laser diode only lasts a couple of years before it dies. You might have to replace the drive.

Not reading cd roms


I would say that could indicate that the CD you are trying to burn files onto is either partly written to OR which I suspect incompatible media type. Yes some burners are fussy, dislike certain makes and or types - or + eg CDR+ I've had this problem a couple of times over the 10 tears I've been burning discs and can never recall which ones are the least likely to fail, i.e. some are very compatible with just about all burners. Check Burner specs.

How can i make my Lite-on-SOHR-5238s CD-RW burner read and burn stuff on a DVD+R/DVD-R? Cause when i put it in my computer doesnt recognize it.


Hi Justin If it's a CD-RW burner then you can't burn any DVDs in it. You need to get a DVD burner instead - they are very cheap now.

make sure your cd/dvd-rom can burn cd/dvd.. cause sometimes your cd-rom is not a burner...

My drive will not burn dvd-r anymore but it used to, it burns cd-r and reads discs no problem, but now when i try to burn the disc spins but makes a strange knocking noise.


sometime it has more to do with the driver software than it does with the unit itself.
Try uninstalling the writer software, restart the computer, reinstall the software, restart the computer, and attempt burn again. Software occaisionally gets confused and needs to be "rebooted" from time to time. Hope this helps.

Cd will not read or write


What does it say when it fails?  Try using a much slower burn speed.

Unable to burn dvd using LG DVD ROM


your DVD Rom drive cannot burn DVDs because it is not a DVD burner, DVD Rom drives are different from DVD writers, if you want to burn DVD you must buy a DVD burner/writer.

Writer will read but not burn


Can you remove the burning software and try to burn by dragging files using the built in windows xp imapi? Check the event viewer for any system events around the time when you are having problems. Also try following these instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314060 If you have another pc you can try the burner with, you would be able to rule out software issues.
