K17A Pioneer DVD-RW - Won't recognize blank CD

Plays Music CD and saves to Hard Drive just fine. But if I want to burn anything - when I put in a blank disc it tries to read it- ejects it and asks for a blank CD.

Tried all the CD creator programs installed(Windows, Yahoo, Toshiba) and downloaded a few more- same result. Re-installed software + tried different brands of blank disk - no change.

Even in 'My Computer' it shows the drive is empty. Actually in one menu it shows the blank disk w/ 0 free space. HELP!! Thanks. Jon E

L305D-S5930 dvd wont burn documents to a dvd disc


You need a program, like nero.
if that doesn't work then put a DVD in the drive & see if the computer picks it up in the my computer.
the first thing that goes in a CD/DVD-RW drive is the DVD heads, thats if your drive is a CD/DVD-RW.
Have a look on the front of the drive tray, if it say CD-RW DVD ROM then it doesn't burn DVD's it only plays them.

My DVD rw (DW-Q58A) in VGN FS42w won't read CD (both music and data) although it plays DVD video and recognizes blank DVD-R.


It happens if the lens becomes weak. I advice you get an external DVD-RW.
I hope you find this solution is helpful.

I had to download all kinds of drivers to get my computer to do basics like viewing movies hearing music and finally burn music now i learned i can only save data(lots of songs at one time) or make a cd on...


cd-r80 are for music. Your best option is to buy a program like nero. I assume you are just dragging and dropping files to burn them right now. dvd's are more meant for backing up data or making movies because they hold a lot more data then a cd. Are you able to burn disc's at all? Just like all things involved with computers it can get complicated real quick.I hope this helps a little and if you have more questions let me know
Thanks,
Lee

You're creating Disk images on your Hard Disc Drive.

See where your CD Burning Software stores the images of the Disk and use the appropriate option to burn them onto a blank CD.

Toshiba dvd burner problem


Try unistalling the dvd drive in device manager. Go to my computer click on view system information. Then click on hardware, then click on device manager find your dvd drive then right click and unistall a warning window will popup click ok. Once you unistall it restart the system and windows will find new device and reinstall the device driver. Then check if this fixes the problem. if this dosnt fix the problem try removing the dvd drive from the laptop and reinsert it. Sometimes the connection losses contact with the terminals.

LG LS50 DVD/CD-RW DRIVE won't recognize blank dvd-r


Yes does not read DVD-R because if your LS50 Labeled like this (DVD/CD-RW) means that can read only all DVD Disc and cannot write on DVD blank only CD blank.


You can burn only on the blank CD-RW or any blank CD.

Mine is an ongoing issue, for almost 6 weeks now. I cannot access my Pinterest account. I get no results when I sign on to Pinterest, or when I push the Pinterest button. The first sign of trouble was when I got a message that something had run out or stopped and at that point I was told to paste something to my browser. This was Greek to me and thus began my many desperate pleas for help. At 70 years old, I am unable to follow any instructions. The second thing I was told was to deactivate my account and then reinactivate it. I then read that to deactivate would lose all my boards and pins, so then I was and still am, afraid to do anything! I adore Pinterest. I am a shut in, physically challenged and Pinterest adds so much joy to my daily life. My last email was from a woman, at Corp., and she listed several suggestions...however, I did not understand them, plus, if I exited the email to do what she instructed, I had to hope I could still have the email to go back to, and I immediately did the unthinkable...I lost the email entirely. I am so fed up with myself at this point, I had a computer repair man come to the house to work on my iPad and my laptop, but he said he knew nothing about Pinterest and could not help me at all. I have contacted you for help so many times on this, it is embarrassing and I am sure I have made a nuisance of myself. The initial email, notifying me that something was wrong with my account, is when all the trouble began. I have enjoyed Pinterest for several years, and have no idea what the initial email was talking about. That is when I was told to deactivate and then deactivate my account, and also told to paste something to my browser. It sounds so simple, but I am at a total loss. Again, I am terrified of losing my boards and 57,000.00 pins. Can someone at Corp. try again to help me? Also, is there any chance that they could call me and instruct me over the phone? I am desperate to save my boards/pins.Could someone please try one more time to help me? Carol Thompson Hollyhockheaven 623 910 9386
