1. Put a blank disc in the drive.
2. Run the software on your computer designed for burning discs. If you cant find one, download a trial version of nero, www.nero.com.
3. Follow the step by step instructions in the software.
4. You have a freshly burned disc.

OR

You can take the disc, douse it with lighter fluid, and apply match. :c)

My disks are DVD-RW and want tp use them over gain and don't know how. Also when do I finalise then and what for


For RW discs, you need to reformat them to reuse them. For your laptop, you should see a format option if you right click on the DVD icon when you have the File Explorer open to Computer (My Computer). (This assumes that the computer has a DVD writer.)

Finalizing the disc enables the contents of the disc to be read on other DVD players. (This isn't always an issue. For example, a disc burned with WinXP should be readable for a computer with Windows 7 without finalizing. However, if the disc was burned by a DVD player, the contents will not be accessible on any other units without being finalized.)

If the disc has been finalized, you need to take another step before reformatting the RW disc. Put the disc in the unit that initially finalized it. Then look for an Unfinalize option. Then format the disc again. (I've never used this feature on my computer. It's easily accessed on my DVD recorder in the same section of the submenu as finalizing the disc.)

I hope this helps.

DVD DOES NOT PLAY, BRAND NEW FROM BEST BUY ACER EXTENSA LAPTOP EX5230E-2177 WILL NOT BURN A DVD OR PLAY A MOVIE


first make sure that the drive is installed properly. I would advise you to install it from the manufacturer's site. Let me know if you need the installation files.

Also, it can help if you can let me know if it reads any other discs- like regular discs. Try several different types- burned cd and dvd discs, brand new discs, original discs etc.
If installing it doesn't help and the drive will not read any kinds of discs, you will have to return the laptop to the store where you bought it, or try to return it to the manufacturer, maybe they can replace the drive.

Dvd drive will not read burned discs


The laser is weak and its not burning discs properly to begin with. Get a new drive put in there and that will take care of the problem cause a new drive will have a new laser in it.

Burning with disc creator


Do this instead and you will never have a problem with burning CDs again. Forget about Disc Creator. Go to www.cnet.com. Search for a CD/DVD burning program called ImgBurn. It is a free program download. Download it and follow instructions. It is simple to use and can burn music, movies, HD-DVD, BluRay and ISO images..good luck and let me know if you have any problems.

Factory default disc on acer 4520G


Hello,

If you have Nero of Power ISO installed you can right click the .iso file and there should be a command in the shortcut menu that states "burn with Nero" or burn iso with Power ISO, etc. this should apply to other disc burning software you have installed.

As you may know, .iso files are a compressed disc image file that contains the data layout for a complete CD or DVD. Most of the time, burning an iso image from first opening your disc burning software is more difficult but can be done by hunting through your software's menu commands.

Hope this has fixed ya!
