Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I burn the first of the three disks fine. It takes about an hour. But when I put the second dvd-rw in the time ticker counts, but doesn't burn anything, then the whole pc freezes. Someday I may have to reformat but looks like I won't be able to since I can't create the recovery disks.

I think you need a better source of Operating system, one which is working. Insert the OS to boot then on the installation process...choose "repair OS" rather than "install". In this case you don't need a recovery disc.

Upon burning, i guess 1 dvd disc is enough for the OS..if you will burn software or games bigger than 4.7 gig, use the dual layer dvd disc which is 8+ gig.... thanks, hope this will help.

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 drive is listed as DVD-RW-DVR-lllD, but when I put a DVD disk into it, it changes automatic to CD-RW Drive E. How do I keep it as a DVD burner?


Try burning a disk, and taking the burnt disk to another computer, to see if the other computer recognizes the media as being a DVD disk.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

Couldn't format and burn the DVD+RW


Hi,
It could be a problem of the version you are using with Nero 7, try upgrading. It also could be that you are try to burn the DVD RW at a speed it cannot be burned (say 4x), try burning it at 2x.
Hope this works!

Burning problem


Try burning at a slower speed, like 16x or less. If your burner is a CAV-type, it will burn faster as it moves toward the outside of the disk and can be more prone to errors that way.

Also, have you tried playing the burned disk in another player, and did it show the same symptoms?

Cannot play this disc


The DVD-R130 can only record to DVD-R and DVD-RW disks - it cannot identify blank DVD+R and DVD+RW disks. For recorded DVD disks, the player will play finalised DVD+R/+RW disks without any problem.
