Go to " device manager" and expand the dvd/cd rom drives. Select your dvd rom there and right click on it, then uninstall it. Then on top of the device manager options, click on "action" and click on scan for hardware changes. Wait for it to be detected again. You may need to have the driver for your dvd drive (usually its on the cd that came with the drive ) If you don't have then just dowload the driver from the internet.

MY PC has sony DVD-ROM DDU1615 that I can't record my videos onto a dvd


you cant burn a disk with a dvd rom
you will need both a dvd rw unit and a dvd rw disk to burn any video to a disk if you have both of these the burning program might not support video burning or you might not have selected the right option there are lots of free burning software programs that can burn videos to a disk you might have to burn it as an ISO image
http://www.majorgeeks.com/BurnAware_Free_d5839.html
BurnAware Free is one of the most popular free CD, DVD, Blu-ray Disc burning software available for Windows.
Using this program you can easily create and burn Audio and MP3 CD, Data and DVD-Video disc, ISO and Cue Image,
erase or format rewritable disc, copy your CD or DVD to ISO image.
hope this helps

Unable to burn movie to DVD/CD


You can't burn a DVD movie using a COMBO drive or Compact disc rewriter, change your movie format from DVD to VCD and then try again, I recommend you use nero to make/edit movie and ImgBurn to make ISO image and burn it onto disc.

It comes with nero but i don't understand it. and i also need to know that if i download a movie from the internet, how do i burn it onto a disk using this burner


you have to setup nero, insert a blank cd/dvd onto the writer. need to start startsmart, you should select the proper potion uou want to use like, music, video or just as data to write all at a same cd.

Now another window should come. then use "add" to add those files you want to burn. press next and burn.

This prosess should work. let me know if anything seems not working.

Cd/dvd wont play only wants me to burn


What you describe is a failure of the Read optics of the drive. If you boot to the safe mode, and have the same issue, reseat the drive and there is no change, then the drive is bad. Replacements are generally less than $100

Depends what software you are using to burn. Use Nero. then select dvd or cd or whatever. You must state what you are burning onto - you cant create a cd then put a blank dvd into the drive - common sense

I cannot seem to burn my file onto the DVD. I am thoroughly confused!


I'm assuming you have a DVD burner

most computers will not burn data onto dvd's without special software. i know windows just recognizes it as a CD it cant burn. my suggestion would be to head over to download.com and see if you can find some free program that will let you burn your files. if you can't find anything there are lots of programs that don't cost to much that would work.

my personal recommendation would be to get Nero. it has everything you could possible want to do with a CD or DVD, but it will set you back about $60-120
