Dvd-rw doesn't work

My dvd-rw won't recognize when I put in a disc...any disc. It's not showing as having an error, and the discs spin when I put them in. But when I click on the drive in Computer, it comes up Application not found. If I click on it on the left though it just comes up telling me to insert a disc

    Same problem. No matter what disc I put into my DVD RW drive, it says "application not found." This started just after my one year warranty was up, of course. Someone suggested it just needed a good cleaning but that didn't help.

Won't burn DVD data discs, error code 0x207


Have you looked at this from ACER: http://acer--uk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3410/~/error-code-0x207-shows-during-recovery-dvd-creation I'm sure you already know it seems to be a common problem. Every post seems to point to Media type , can't use RW disk, +or-, seems kink of finicky which seems odd. Only use DVD+R or DVD-R.

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.

Hey my mac won't eject a disc. i have tried a lot of stuff and nothing happened. when i restart it the disk spins and doesn't sound stuck and when i used disk utility it said there was an error...


Resolution Tip: Make sure the CD or DVD disc is not in use. Quit all applications that are using files on the disc.
  1. Press the Media Eject key at the top-right corner of the keyboard.
  2. If that doesn't work, drag the disc's icon to the Trash.
  3. If that doesn't work, restart the computer, then hold down the mouse button or trackpad button while the computer is starting up, until the disc is ejected.
    To restart, choose Restart from the Apple menu.

2. Type REGEDIT on the search bar on START Menu on the Run Box

3. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

4. Expand SYSTEM

5. Expand CurrentControlSet

6. Expand Control

7. Expand Class

8. Click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

9. Look for the Upper Filters / right click on it / click on Delete

10. Look for the Lower Filters / right click on it / click on Delete

11. Restart PC

12. Try you CD / DVD ROM

If nothing happens, click on this link then click on RUN and follow the steps, then restart computer and try to run a disc again, if still nothing happens, theres a possibility that the problem is with the hardware side or the media player that you are you using...

Gateway m-465 dvd-rw drive will not detect disc in drive.


it is probably an internal error with the dvd drive. if not check the dvd or cd you are putting in to make sure it is not scratched. if it isn't the disc it is prob the disk drive pop it out , what always works for me is, whipe the lens of the disc drive with a tiny amount of alcohol on a soft small cloth.(slowly) if that still doesn't work and your computer cannot detect the disc and it's content see what disc u are using and if your disc drive can support it.
