Reading or writing DVDs is much more demanding on accuracy than CDs and even a small drift in tracking can create the situation you have. The ratio of content is about 6 or 7:1
If cleaning has not helped (as is often the case), replacing the drive may be your only choice.

My cd writer is not working can nort burn the disk what should i do i have a dell d800


Your cdrom drive can read a data disc or play cd audio? Check if its CDR/CDRW not DVDR/DVDRW, buy a disk cleaner and play it on your cd/dvd drive. After that try to burn again.

You should clean your CD-Drive lens with Disk cleaner Cd that will work or move anticlock wise and your problem will be solve after cleaning the lens.

Good Luck

DVD WONT PLAY IN LAPTOP BUT I CAN BURN AND PLAY AUDIO C'DS. I HAVE A COMPAQ PRESARIO V2000. WHEN I INSERTED DVD IT SAYS NO DVD INSERTED I CLEANED THE PLAYER AND STILL DOESN'T WORK CAN ANYONE HELP


Hi damonabrown your laptop should play dvd's even if it can't burn them

as you have cleaned the drive there is not much else you can do ,as it still play's cd's,
data on a dvd is packed much closer as it hold about 6 times the data of a cd, and can fail much easier, it looks like a new drive will be needed soon.

good luck

DVD-RW IBM A31 Thinkpad problem


I take it you are trying to "send to" files to the DVD-RW?You can't burn a DVD just with windows XP . It only supports CDRW drives.

Get commercial software like Roxio or Nero, or download a free CD burning program like this one:
