Test the disc by using the command prompt to copy files loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Try to copy files from the disc to the hard disk. If the hard disk cannot copy files, the disc might be damaged. If the files are copied successfully, there may be file types on the disc that the hard disk cannot read, or there may be a problem with the CD or DVD drive.

To test the disc by using a command prompt to copy files, follow these steps:

  1. Create a test folder on the hard disk, and then give the folder a folder name such as "cdtest." This is the folder to which you will try to copy files.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. Copy and paste (or type) cmd in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
  4. Copy the files from the CD or DVD drive to the test folder on the hard disk. To do this, type xcopy DiscDrive:\*.* HardDiskDrive:\cdtest /v /e at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. Make sure that you replace “cdtest” with the name of your test folder.

    Note In this step, DiscDrive is the drive letter of the CD or DVD drive with which you have problems. HardDiskDrive is the drive letter of the hard disk drive to which you want to copy these files.
  5. If you are asked whether cdtest specifies a file name or a directory name, press F.
  6. If you successfully copied the files from the disc to the hard disk, the disc is not damaged. To remove the copied files, type rd /s cdtest at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

    If you cannot copy the files, the disc may be damaged. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement.

maybe your dvd burner got malfunction, go try to burn another one, if it doesnt burn a cd/dvd, then its time for you to buy a new one, or if there is an update for your dvd burner then download it and try to patch/update it, if not then buy another one.

Roxio cd creator 9 cannot burn a cd because it says drive not detected? How do i change this?


1.do you have a cd burner in your system? is it working for you to at least read cds on it? check the cd drive unit has a something that says "compac disk rewriteable" if not.. you don't have a cd burner only a cd rom drive that will only read cds but won't burn them
2. check device manager and look for the removable storage.. do you see the cd burner drive listed and in working condition?

Cd/Dvd burner stopped working on my laptop


It could be that the burner has gone out in the drive, this is a common problem. Before you go and replace the drive, it could just be a simple driver glitch, try uninstalling the drivers for the CD drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the drive and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work then you can replace the drive.

Burner not recognizing blank cd-r


Hi, Some of the burner drives require only certain media. Make sure that your burner does actually use the - media or the + media.

This may be why the media is not being recognised.

Cd\dvd drive won't read software cd


Just a suggestion, try to update your drivers.. If you have installed any third party cd burner just uninstalled it. after uninstalling, clean the registry via ccleaner, regcure, or any other 3rd party cleaner... then update your drivers... most of the 3rd party cd burner software are damaging your cd drivers...

gud luck
