Please remember to always note Computer specifications and Operating system details when you post a problem and to explain your problem in more detail( Specify your CD-ROM / DVD Drive more)

If you cant burn DVDRW or CDRW it is likely that your Drive does not support burning these Formats. You can check on your drive at the front; it should tell you what it supports.

Another solution could be that you are not using the correct software to burn your DVDRW/CDRW. I recommend using: Nero

Kind Regards,
Stef

Dell gx 260 there is no disc in the drive.


OK, first of all you said you put a blank DvD in the drive. Make sure your dell has a DvD writer. Look on the drawer of the drive and see does it say DvDrw or DvDROM. It has to say Rw for rewritable and not ROM for Read Only Media. Maybe you have a Combo Drive that is DvDrom and CDrw which means it will read both DvD's and Cd's but in can only Write CD's.

If in fact you do have a DvD writer make sure you're not trying to put a Blue Ray disc in the drive.

Lastly, remove the DvD from the drive. Click Start/My Computer. Notice what it brings up as to your DvD Drive. Does it Say DvDrw or just plain ole DvD. DvD means it will only read a DvD.

I have just started using cyberlink products here is my problem. I have used the copy to disc and it copies and all, but when I get ready to play it on my DVD it comes across as unknown disc, not playing...


This could be because the session on the disc is not closed. Computers and many of today’s recorders as well, allows you to keep the session open on a disc in order to be able to continue adding more information on CD-R or DVD-R discs, but leaving it open doesn’t allow you to play it on just any other player.
Insert the DVD into your computer then right click the drive and select "Close Session" ( if the option is available, then test it again.

Using Windows XP. Want to copy vidoe from Media


Is the drive you are using a DVD writer or only a DVD reader? The drive that writes to RW disks is labeled DVD/RW or DVD Recordable.
These are the only drive types that will read and write a DVD/RW disc.

DVD-RW drive burns music CDs and DVDs, but not data CDs


Alright. Seems like Windows, for some reason, doesn't think your drive is able to burn things when trying to deal with this kind of disc.

I'll need further information, like if you use another program to burn music CDs, and what other things might have changed the registry settings. I know of a fix that resolves issues with the Windows version of data CD burning, but it only applies to CD-R and CR-RW drives..
