Question about Dell (1G055) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner

2 Answers

Cd BURNER This seems to be a common problem...but about 6 months ago my CD/DVD player that is also a RW stopped burning CDs...reads and plays everything but will not record. Called dell...they sent someone out to replace the drive - I thought that that was great, until after they left and it still does not work! They said it was probably a software problem and they couldn't help with that.... NOW not only does my computer not record CD...but it also will not longer even acknowledge a media card from the built in reader...so I can no longer transfer my pictures to my computer - I am currently backing everything up through an USB storage device and am thinking I just need to restore everything and re-install...I would rather not though - anyone have any ideas?

You can do that and it should take care of your problem. Most likely somehow or another (can happen with different software titles[for burning]) your upper and lower filters in the registry became corrupted and this is why your CD/DVD drive are not working properly. With the Media Card Reader, usually if you uninstall the USB Root hub in device manager (which it is on) there will be a few of them. Let the computer re-install the driver it will take care of this issue.

Hello
Trying cleaning the lense with a DVD cleaning kit ,if that does not solve it then it will have to be replaced as this is a problem with the laser.
Some failing drives read but cannot burn others only read CDs and not DVDs and also burn to CD but no longer can burn to DVD and vice versa this is a common drive failure.

LG GCE 8400B CD-RW will burn cds, but will not read gaming cds meaninh i am unable to install the game, is it supposed to be able to read cds aswell?


Yes it should be able to read any CD including music if you have software to play back music with. There is something wrong with the reading head on your CD player.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me some feedback.

Where to find a CD-R longer than 80 minutea and way to burn it


You can't, that is the maximum for a CD-R or a CD+R = approx 700Mb capacity.
DVD-R and DVD+R have a capacity of 4.5Gb
Depending upon the type of data files you want to burn, there are compression techniques you and apply and then burn them to a CD.
For example you can convert CDs to mp3 music files and burn them onto a CD-+R disk. You can fit 12 to 16 CDs albums in mp3 format on a single CD-+R disc, but your CD player needs to be a MP3 player to play these music files.

My computer wont recognise my dvd burner but it will read and play dvds just wont burn them and when i try a new dvd burning tool it cant fint my burner


Is your DVD drive a Combo DVD ROM and CD Read/writer? If so it cannot burn DVD only reads DVDs and read and burn CDs.
If the program cannot find a DVD burner then either the burning software cannot support that model DVD burner ot the DVD burner is faulty.
To test the DVD burner, remove it and install it into another computer to test the burner to see if is faulty.

Burning movies


Yes. Many burning apps (such as Nero) support the creation of Video-CDs, and most current DVD players support playing these Video-CDs.

Cd/Rw playback CD player in lounge room won't play burned cd's...


Hi.

You need to burn your CDs in Audio format. That means that you cannot just burn your MP3 or WMA files, but you need to use the program which can convert those files to WAV format and write them so that ordinary CD players can reproduce them. Nero is such a program, among others.
