I have a dvd/cd SD-R6252 unit in my r3000 compaq presario. I've burned CDa but cannot burn a DVD. I think I know the answer but I want to be sure is this unit capable of burning DVDs?


Hi, well ur DVD\CDRW drive is a combo drive. It can play CDs\DVDs but burns only CDs as it's NOT a DVDrw @ the same time. It won't burn a DVD.

.... In future I propose u either to replace the drive by a DVDRW or u may buy an external slim dvdrw if u want to keep ur existing drive as well. 2nd solution is best BTW.

I have a Zd8000 hp laptop and the cd rom doesnt read or write but if i insert a dvd it work reads and writes the disk, how do i go about fixing this issue, mark


That is a lens problem, CDRW and DVDRW use different focus , and the lens is working only on DVD , try using a lens cleaner disk.
That probably will not work, in that case replace the DVDRW that is not an expensive part.

My Matshita UJDA 750 DVD/CDRW wont recognize a blank DVD discs. How ever it does read both CDs and DVDs and only burns CDs.... please help


Are you trying to burn a dvd? If so from the spec you gave in the problem description your drive will burn cds(CDRW) but will only play dvds(DVD). If it stated DVDRW then you would be able to burn DVDs as in the CDRW.

Passport 2068 only accepts WiFi card in startup.


When your card is inserted and after few minutes to activate Sw, right click on wireless card icon and try repair.
It's normally working for me 3 out of 5.
Sometime I have to retry.

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4082N. Can not write to DVD


The DVD -R +R means that you can read these types of DVDs that have been created elsewhere, it doesn't mean you can write to your DVD under the format of -R or +R. The CD is a CDRW which means you can read and write to CDs.

I don't think that a factory Satellite P100 has the ability to write to either DVD -R or +R, but to only CDs. I have a P200 that has a DVD -R +R/CDRW and it can't write DVDs. These DVDs you put in are for read only. My Toshiba A215 can but it's a DVDRW/CDRW.

Cd dvd drive


Yes its easy to repair / replace the laptop drive. I'm in the UK and charge £30 for a replacement CDRW/DVD and £45 for a DVDRW A new laptop would cost about £300 depending on the make and model. Keep green and get the item repaired.

I hope this is useful please rate the solution as we depend on your feedback.

Yes no problem.

Sure they made DVD writers for those - usually about $80-100.
If you just want a CD burner and DVD player they are only $40-$60.

You can easily eject the drive by hitting the release lever to the right of the CD drive.

The CDRW/DVD combo part numbers are 08K9820 22P6980 08K9818 or 13N6765

They have cdrw/dvd combos for $34 at compuvest.com brand new. I saw DVDrw drives for $70 on ebay -look for part numbers 08k9868, 08K9694, 08K9572, 08K9818, 08K9820, 08K9867, 22P9109, 22P7011, 22P6991, 08k9785, 27L4358, 08k9784, 27L4359
