Maybe your dvd burner got malfunction, go try to burn another one, if it doesnt burn a cd/dvd, then its time for you to buy a new one, or if there is an update for your dvd burner then download it and try to patch/update it, if not then buy another one.

If you did not burn CD before Check firstif your CD Drive has a capability to burn. Normally it is indicated on the front panel of the Drive CDRW+/-, if not chances are you can only read CD but unable to burn.

Can NO LONGER BURN Video Files To My DVD's


Sounds like a DVD drive issue to me since the same thing happens in more than one program. Luckily desktop DVD-burners are quite inexpensive, since you should replace the drive completely with a brand new one. It's the fact that it THINKS it burned correctly that is the nail in the coffin.

With the hp dvd burner 1040r I have, I've burnt hundreds of cds on the same eMac I've had for quite awhile (I think it was made in like '02). One day, my burner just quit burning. It will read and play...


It is hard to believe it lasted this long, sometimes the write laser diode only lasts a couple of years before it dies. You might have to replace the drive.

I have a Sony DVD DRU-820A burner. When I insert a dvd--either a blank one to burn or a DVD disc to view--the name of the drive switches from DVD-RAM Drive (D:) to CD Drive (D:). The burner no longer burns...


The device is _partially_ broken -- the part that reads/writes DVD media is "dead".

Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" unit.

Hi as your burner is OK for your dvd-rw but wont burn dvds, try a different brand of dvds.Quite often a drive will not burn one brand but will burn another brand. Hope this helps.

When I go to burn a CD the drive doesn't work. The drive works with playing CD/DVDs etc.. but when I go to burn a disc it tries to work, but it doesn't quite get there, What do I do? Frustrated!


try to see if there is any updated drivers you can install for your cd/dvd burner. and make sure it is a cd/dvd burner. To find drivers for your laptop you can usually go to hp.com and download them there.
