Open the case and see if any wires have come loose. If not replace the burner.

The most likely problem is that the Burner is shot and will no longer function. How long have you had this burner? Have you run tests on the burner? Has your system crashed before this began to occur? I can only solve your problem with this information.

DVD wont burn with dvd maker gets to 99% then stops


HI THERE,
When was the last time it was working fine?

• Do you have any third party CDDVD burning software?
• Are you able to burn DVD's using windows explorer?


First I would suggest that you try burning using another DVD and check if it works.

Method 1

Try one or more of the following:
Verify that the DVD burner is connected properly to your computer and powered on, and that any necessary software drivers for the DVD burner are installed. You can check your hardware settings in the Device Manager by doing the following:

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Hardware and Sound.
3. Click Device Manager.
• Make sure that the videos you're trying to burn are not corrupted. To see whether the videos you want to burn is corrupted, try playing or viewing them using Windows Media Player. If the files don't play using the Player, Windows DVD Maker cannot burn them.

• Choose a slower burning speed for your DVD burner by doing the following:
1. Return to the Add pictures and video to the DVD page, and then click Options.
2. In the DVD burner speed box, select Medium or Slow.

Method 2

Method 3

Check in the event viewer to know the cause of the DVD burning failure and post back with the details.

My burner is connected to my computer it burns but when we try to play on our dvd player it want work. it plays back on the computer


Hi,

This indicates that your DVD player does not recognize the codec that was imbeded in your DVD movie when you were burning it. There are two things you may try to resolve this issue.

First, download and install K-lite codec pack to complete your codecs for different media formats. There is the BASIC, STANDARD and FULL for 32bit Windows version. Or, if you have a 64bit Windows version, you may download and install the 64bit version codec.

Then, adjust your DVD burner program to burn compatible settings that your DVD player is limited for.

Burn a sample movie for testing. You are welcome to respond/comment for further assistance.



I hope this works for you. Good Luck!



Thanks for using Fixya!

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.

I burnt a video to a DVD+R DL but not playing on my DVD player?


You don't need to format the disc, as it does this during the burn process. What you may find is that your NEC dvd player does not play DVD+R. If you can, re-burn the video on a DVD-R 8.5GB.

You can also compress the video to fit on 4.7GB dvd. Download a program called DVD Shrink 3.2. Put the disc you burnt in the drive, and run DVD Shrink. This will analize the film, and all you need to do is click on Re-Author and lower the compression. It even has a line to show how big the video will be on the disc. On a 4.7GB dvd, you don't want this any higher than 4,430MB.

Hope those work

My dvd burner doesn't burn dvds


You need to check that with blank DVD's you are using compatible with your drive.Because the DVD's may work with your extranal drive but not with your builting drive. If this doen't slove the problem I would recommend using a different burning software other than "sonic record now" and "vista o/s Built-in dvd burner".
