I have DVDFab platinum and I can copy the other DVD's but when I try to burn them it says no medai detected please insert proper media. I have an internal CD/DVD combo writer and I have no trouble burning music to a CD. I have tried DVD+R, DVD-R, and DVD+RW, what else can I do??? HELP????

I have a HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4040N drive in stalled in an emachine Laptop, the drive will read data,cds music and dvd movies, but can not burn either cds or dvd...Depending on which program i use for...


well there could be a few things you can try
1) update the firmware and see if it works any better
2) try brand name DVD-R disks and CD-R disks
3) try an updated hack firmware such as these http://tdb.rpc1.org/#GWA4040N
4) try Nero Lite. it is free and it supports almost any drive. http://www.nero.com/eng/downloads-nero9-free.php

I would not worry about the driver as they normmally would not need any.

Emachine EL1200 won't burn dvd's.


I researched the Emachine EL1200 and it IS equipped with a DVD burner so there is no reason it shouldn't work. Return it while it is still under warranty. There is a 1 year warranty.

If it is out of warranty (system is older than 1 year), the drive can be replaced.

CD RW/ DVD RW Drive Will not read and Burned discs or burn to blank discs


I suggest a firmware update from Toshiba. If this does not help then your laser in the drive is no longer capable of this task. Also just thought about it but make sure the media that you are burning to is the same as the drive + or - R's
