Hi, I have a CD which has become stuck in my Dell Studio laptop, which is less than a year old. As it's a slot and not a drawer, there's no hole to put a paperclip into. The computer doesn't actually...


Mechanical failures and jams are a real pain. As it is still under manufacturer's warranty, (if bought within the EU), I would be inclined to return it to your dealer and have the DVD recorder/player replaced.
If not the laptop will have to be disassembled and the DVD recorder/played replaced or repaired. To repair it is too complicated to go into but there is a mechanism motor, (sometimes the traverse or disk motor is employed for this job) and removal of the casing should show up your problem.
Hope this helps

It wont recognize a recordable DVD. i tried both the R and the -R


Be sure that your hardware is a CD/DVD writer,
not just a "combo" drive (CD-reader/writer-and-DVD-reader).

Try a different brand/manufacturer of recordable media.

You may need to update the "firmware" (software residing inside the writer) to allow it to recognize "newer" blank disks.

Note that "blank" disks have some data recorded on them, to identify the manufacturer and composition and capabilities of the media (2X? 4X? 8X?). So, the values on "new" disks may not be allowable by "old' firmware inside the writer.

-There a lot of things we may consider.I'll give some few things.
-It may be your dvd drive is not working properly.
-It maybe the setting of your dvd drive is not configure properly.
-It maybe the blank disc is having the issue not the dvd drive.

follow this steps to check and troubleshot:
-Set the dvd region
right click on my computer select properties, go to device manager click the + sign under dvd drive, right click on you dvd drive-choose dvd region.

-Enabling CD recording
Click on My Computer-right click on dvd cdrom drive-go to properties-select recording, then check if the Enable CD recording has a check on its box, then check the box that says Automatically eject the CD after writing.

If this steps will not work then send me feedback so we can move on to the next level of troubleshooting.

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.
