This is not a "Solution" yet because I don't know what Operating System you're using (XP, Vista, W7?), what burning program (Windows default factory, Vero, Roxio?) what type of file you're trying to copy or burn (Data, Music, Video, a combination of...?) and the size of the file.

I'll post as a Solution and if you respond in Comments below, it'll post in my Comments section and I can move ahead with you using comments to try to solve this.

Regards,

Marcus

Hi,
This is because the CD which you have inserted may be already used one.Please insert an empty CD,This will solve the problem. Try to insert another empty CD other than which you are trying now.If the problem persists then the problem is with the lens.
Try cleaning the lens by the lens cleaner which you get in markets.Then try inserting empty CD.Still the problem persists then give the drive for service.That is the only thing you can do.
Thank You

I can't burn 2Gb even though my DVD is 4,7 Gb


The size of the file in MB. does not equal what is burned onto the disk. 4 x 600 = 2400 MB. but what is burned to the disk is usually more than what the file size equals. Try using a dual-layer blank disk and see what happens.

I need to foremate disks


Blank Discs are normally sold formatted. And you can not format a DVD-R. If it is a blank DVD-RW then insert it into your DVD drive, go to my computer, right click on your DVD drive and click format.

CD/DVD will not burn DVD


Did you tell CDBurnerXP that you want to burn a CD? or to burn a DVD?

Does this happen with _EVERY_ "blank" disk that you insert, or just one disk?

Can your DVD-RW _read_ a previously-recorded CD? DVD?
If not, then that hardware is suspect.

Dimension E510 dvd burner will not burn


Go to this link and click on the Fixit box. Microsoft has an issue with CD/DVD recognition and created a patch. This happens a lot when Windows Update runs and installs SP3. Hope this solves your problem. If it doesn't, right click on your DVD drive and ensure that recording is enabled. Hope this solves your recording issue.

When i try to copy dvd it keeps telling me to insert blank disc even though one is in there i can burn cds but not dvd it tells me to put in writeable disk and ive put in dvdr-w and dvd-r and still it...


Go to the device manager to insure your optical drive is in fact a DVD/RW. You should also be able to tell by looking at the front of the drive and see what it says. If it says CD Writable or DVD Rom, you cannot do it. Kind of sounds like you have a CD/RW-DVD Rom combination drive, which does not allow the burning of DVD's.

Let me know, OK.

Can't burn cds


check your compilation, it is possible that you are trying to burn more data than you can write to a blank CD, in which case it will ask for a cd with the right capacity. 80 min CD-Rs can have 700MB written to them. if you are trying to write more than this the software will reject the blank as not having the right capacity.
