Put the recovery CD in the DVD drive and at the first screen press del or f1 so that you can setup the Boot order. Make sure CD/DVD is on the top. You have to reinstall windows to get your computer working. The Dell recovery Disk will erase all data on the hard drive if you use it.

Try uninstalling Roxio and the Sonic drives and run Fixit. Then reboot and install Roxio first then the Sonic driver.
If this doesn't work uninstall again as previously, install Roxio and check the CD/DVD if necessary run Fixit then install Sonic driver.

Drive does read audio cd but not dvd.writer also can't burn any.


If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.

Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:

Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...

two things. Firsly make sure that you are using the correct disks i.e if your drive is dvd-r then only use dvd-r disks, if its dvd+r then only use dvd+r disks if it is a multi drive then it won't matter what disks you use. Secondly don't format the disk first. If it asks you to format the disk click on the X to shut the pop up box. Only put the disk in when dvd maker asks for you to insert a disk.

Cannot backup files to a cd/dvd


we may need more details but you can try this for now

1. are you sure you have a cd writer or a dvd writer (writer = burner)--- check the front edge of your cd/dvd unit and look for words like "writer" "burner" or writeable next to the word dvd or compact disc... keep in mind not all cd/dvd writer can write (burn) cd or dvds, some may burn cd but not dvds.

2. is your cd/dvd unit compatible with the media (cd or dvd blank disk) you are trying to use.. depending your cd/dvd especifications your dvd/cd drive is compatible with certain types of cd or dvds that are writeable.

3. is the cd/dvd a writeable cd/dvd and is compatible with your cd/dvd drive? for instance.. if you are using a blank dvd and your cd/dvd drive only burn cd/s and read dvd and cd you won't be able to write to the blank dvd.

4. are you trying to burn a dvd in a corporate computer.?? as a user (not an administrator) of your corporate computer you may not have priviledges that will allow them to burn dvd/cd's even you your drive and your media are compatible.

please post
the error that you get
the brand and model of the computer you're using
the type of media you're using

WHEN TRYING TO BURN A COPY OF A DVD (ORIGINALLY RECORDED FROM MY DVD RECORDER ATTACHED TO MY TV), I GET THIS ERROR MESSAGE AFTER IT HAS BEEN COPYING IT FOR SEVERAL MINUTES. DIFFERENT BRANDS: VERBATIM,...


Gracie5, What I would do is find another application program to run on your DVD drive. There are alot of freeware products on the net. Your may be out dated for the current disks you are trying to make.I don't think all those disk companies can be making that many bad disk. Remember to always update!

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.
