Can you burn cds? If you can ,then try using a different brand of dvds and or also a different burning program. I find a good burning program is Ashampoo Burning Studio 6 FREE,which can be downloaded from the web for free. Other than that try cleaning your drive. If all these fails it means your burner has probably went to meet its maker and you will have to replace it.You can get a new one for around £20.Hope this helps you.

DO NOT BUY A NEW DRIVE Why this information is not easy to find is beyond me. Try this:
Device Manager IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers >right click Primary IDE Channel (I do secondary as well) Properties Advanced Settings Transfer Mode >Change from DMA to PIO
This worked for me both times this problem cropped up. Don't know why so many "EXPERT" sites never have an answer for this common problem.
Quit telling people to buy new drives when you don't know what's wrong.

Cant burn dvd


You need a dvd burner a burning program and a dvdr burnable disk to be able to burn a dvd
Burning computer files on a DVD can be a great way to backup your information.
Most one-sided writeable and rewritable DVD discs can store nearly five gigabytes of information, while two-sided writeable and rewriteable DVD discs can hold over eight gigabytes.

There are many programs available for purchase that you can use to burn a DVD.
For the sake of this tutorial, we will be using one of the most popular CD and DVD burning utilities Nero Burning ROM.

Read on to learn how to burn a DVD.
Insert your writeable or rewriteable DVD into your writeable DVD drive.

Click on your start menu and select "All Programs," "Nero" and "Nero StartSmart."
Locate the pull-down menu at the top of the window that shows "CD" displayed.

Click on the arrow to view the rest of the menu and select DVD.
Find the icons under the pull-down menu you just used.

Click on the "Data" icon. Then click on "Make Data DVD."
Click on the "Add" button when the Nero Express window opens.

Find the files on your hard drive that you would like to burn to the DVD and select them.
When you're done selecting files, click "Finished."


Select "Next" to get to the Final Burn Settings screen. If you can select the speed at which to write your disc, select the 8x option.

Click "Burn" and wait as your files are burned to the DVD. Click "OK" once the window pops up telling you the burn process was completed successfully. http://www.nero.com/enu/index.html

Tip

Nero Serial code key for registration


You can obtain a free nero burning rom 9 download and a serial key emailed to your email from ahead software / nero by signing up to the free trial - this will let you use the software legally as a trial for around 15 days, during this time you can burn dvd, cd and other media for free.

http://www.nero.com/eng/downloads-nero9-trial.php

After the trial is over, you must purchase the program, if you can't afford the program and if you want to get it cheaper than what they are asking for it, buy a new CD/DVD burner that has nero software included those generally cost around 20 to 30 $ from www.newegg.com

if you can't afford that either, then there are free alternatives to nero. For example cdburnerxp is a great program that will get the job done, it will burn your cd and dvds for free. Download -http://cdburnerxp.se/

Reads cds and dvds, but won't burn to them


Your drive can only burn CDs, not DVDs. To burn CDs you need to purchase a blank CD-R or CD-RW at a local computer store. You can burn a CD-R only once but a CD-RW can erased and written upon many time.
Try Nero software for burning.

Would like to upgrade Dell Inspiron 1300 c.d drive


Is your dvd rom drive a RW drive? if not, you need to buy a RW-dvd rom drive to be able to RW dvds or cds.

If you already have a RW DVD Rom drive, you need to have a burning application (ex. nero burning rom). You can check on the internet and download a freeware and install it on your machine.

I can't write DVD with my Pioneer DVR-107D DVD±RW


What brand of media are you using?

You are burning at 2x because that is the highest that this drive supports.

You would also want to instruct Nero to Verify by ticking the check box and either finalize disc or make it mulitsession, if your burner supports multisession DVDs

NTI CD/DVD Burner which is a part of the Arcade System .

Easy to use and stable as anything I have seen before,3
Fast n Friendly,Remembering the max ram is 2GB and
with all barrells loaded performs like a beautiful piece of art.
Also Nero is an old favourite too.
Producing your own dvds from scratch is a satifying excercise and amazing when you can see the look in everyones eyes,,,,
Yes - Impact is everything.

I found your answer,
Grab you machine and look at the symbols on the disk draw.

The device you have is a CD/RW-DVD Rom.
What this means it is a CD Writer and a DVD Reader.
This device will never burn DVDs.sorry

To write DVDs you will need to buy DVD/RW device.


I hope this helps ,please rate me thanks
