How to burn a dvd from an acer laptop


The laptop should have come with CD/DVD burning software preloaded. Acer's specs page for your model says it comes with NTI Media Maker. The program will have help information available to guide you through, and you can find more help online. If you just want to write data files onto a DVD, the process typically is not much more than dragging files to a layout window and telling the program to burn the disc. This gives you a way to back up data, or to store movies in formats you can view on a computer (AVI, MPG, etc.).

On the other hand, if you're asking how to make a video DVD that will play in a regular DVD player like a commercial movie, maybe with features like menus or scene selection and such, the process for making that kind of DVD is more involved. You need some DVD authoring software. NTI may offer that capability, but I'll admit I have never looked.

In most cases, the software that comes preloaded on computers is a limited version of some commercial product. The computer manufacturers get paid to include the program, and the software company hopes you'll buy the full version when you discover the limitations. If you don't want to pay for software, there are free, more full-featured programs available for downloading.

For general CD and DVD burning, I use CDBurnerXP. To make video DVDs, I use a program called DVDStyler. Both are open-source, meaning they are 100% free to download and use, and they both offer a lot of features.

No Sir, Acer Aspire 4330 comes with different Optical Media Loadings, ( You can see a pdf file here )
Like;
  • DVD/CD-RW combo drive
  • 8X DVD-Super Multi double-layer drive.
But you have the first one, The Combo drive not the super so you can READ both CD's DVD's but can write only CD's.

Hope this removes your dilemma.

I need to find out what type of disc to use with our dvd burner


The specification of the DVD drive for the Aspire 5930 is
  • Type DVD±RW (±R DL) / DVD-RAM / HD DVD-ROM - Integrated
  • CD / DVD read speed 24x (CD) / 8x (DVD) / 1x (HD DVD)
  • CD / DVD write speed 16x (CD) / 4x (DVD±R) / 2x (DVD-R DL) / 2.4x (DVD+R DL)
  • CD / DVD rewrite speed 10x (CD) / 4x (DVD±RW) / 3x (DVD-RAM)
This means you can burn CDs -R and +R type disc (incl R/W)
Burn single layer and dual layer DVD -R and +R disc (incl R/W)

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop with a Matshita cd/dvd r/rw combo (uj-850s), and it performs all funtions except read a virgin dvd. And I also cant seem to find firmware update for it anywhere on earth....


What operating system are you using? Xp? Vista? Which version of XP/Vista? Home, Pro, etc.?

Blank disks cannot be read for the simple reason that there is nothing on them to read.

If you wish to burn a disk, you need burning software, such as Nero which is a professional burning system, but also a free program such as AmoK / Ultimate CD/DVD Burner / or Sun CD/DVD burner (make sure to uncheck the ads box during install to prevent ad displays)

The above have different capabilities, but what you need is a piece of burning software in order to write to a blank disk, so depending on what you need to burn, you may choose from above, seek out other software, or purchase a burning system such as Nero.

Cd/dvd drive problem


Try with another brand of disk; the Matsushita UJ870 drive of our 5315 burn my Sony CD's but not my Philips CD's (my Compaq V2617LA with an older Matsushita UJ840 drive has burned Phillips CD's in the last two monts)... Remember: CD and DVD lassers are different. I think because of that, i haven't see problems with Sony, Philips and Samsung DVD's... only with CD's...
