Read on your optical drive. If it burns CD's it reads CD-RW. In order to burn DVD's it needs ro read DVD-RW. If it reads DVD-ROM it will only read DVD's not burn them.

A good external burner is Plextor. You can get one at Walmart, or you can check Ebay and find an internal to replace the one in your machine. They are fairly easy to replace, and you won't have a bulky external to carry around.

When burning dvds LG external burner states burn failed


Try using a different burning software. I recommend IMGBurn: The Official ImgBurn Website
Also try using a different make of blank media (CD/DVD).
If it still fails then your hardware may be faulty, try loading latest LG drivers for it.

I want to burn a double layer dvd using windows xp. the burn window says the dvd is write protected. How is this possible since it is a new dvd? how do I disable write protection?


There is no write protection for the dvd as long as it has not been written to. For burning DVDs on XP you need to use software, Windows XP natively can only burn CDs. For XP I recommend CDBurnerXP The software is free and will allow you to burn DVD's and DL DVDs

Let me know how you make out.

Dvd burner plays dvd's and cd's fine, will burn cd's but will not burn dvd's


Unless you have one of the very latest laptops, your model laptop most likely has a DVD ROM combo drive - which allows you to play DVDs and CDs also burn CDs/
You need to give me the make and model number of your laptop for me to verify if your laptop is capable of burn DVDs.

My Matshita UJDA 750 DVD/CDRW wont recognize a blank DVD discs. How ever it does read both CDs and DVDs and only burns CDs.... please help


Are you trying to burn a dvd? If so from the spec you gave in the problem description your drive will burn cds(CDRW) but will only play dvds(DVD). If it stated DVDRW then you would be able to burn DVDs as in the CDRW.

Help with my cd player/burner


There could be several things which are causing your CD burner not to act in the way it should.

I had a similar type problem after installing Windows XP, .Service Pack 3 onto my Sony VAIO model VGN-SZ330P.
The standard Windows burner kept saying there was no CD in the drive but it would play both CDs and DVDs.

I went looking for an alternative and now use IMGBURN which is a free lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application . You can find it at http://www.imgburn.com/.

I also installed CDBurnerXP which is another free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs, as well as a multilanguage interface. You can find it at http://cdburnerxp.se/en/home

The above does not tell you why your burner is having problems (and they could be numerous), it will certainly get the burner doing everything you need.

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".

Cd burner


What programs can I use to burn or create CD's on my computer? If you're running version 10 or higher and have a CD/DVD burner drive installed in your computer you can create audio CDs using it.


Computer DVD Support
CH000885, CD or other disc tray does not close or opens by itself. CH000901, My CD or DVD is skipping. CH001014, Can a DVD burner also burn a CD?
What hardware do you recommend or what is the best? What type of burner, CD-ROM, computer, DVD, fan, hard disk drive, monitor, motherboard, mouse, printer, sound card, speakers, and/or video card does.

Computer CD-R help and technical information The CD-R drive does not actually create pits on the CD, instead the burner creates reflective sections on the CD causing the computer's CD-ROM laser to.

Good Luck, Read and follow instructions.Please dont for get to Vote/Thank You.

DVD / CD - RW Combo


When you say you cannot burn DVD's, do you mean you cannot burn DVD movies or do you mean you cannot burn data files to a DVD?

Burning DVD movies requires specific software to transcode the video and create a directory structure that DVD's players expect.

When you try to burn DVD's does it produce an error? What software are you using to burn?
