It's possible that you do not have the drive enabled for recording, or that your drivers are not up to date. Also ensure you are using the correct media for your drive.

Try this:

To verify that the drive is enabled for recording:
click start -> My Computer
right click on your CD-RW drive and click properties.
in the properties window that appears there should be a "recording" tab, select that tab.
Ensure that "enable CD recording on this drive" is checked and a location is selected for the temporary files (normally stored on the C drive or whatever drive you have windows installed on).

If the above does not work, obtain the most recent drivers for your CD-RW drive from the manufacturer's website.

Dvdcd player is not reading some cds and reads others


This has to do with the type of CD you are trying. Is it a VCD, SVCD, etc.? Also, some CD players will only play certain formats of CDs. For instance, it will play regular store-bought CDs, and will play CD-R discs that you have made in the computer, but won't play any RW discs like CD-RW or CD+RW discs. ALSO, some players will play CD-R and CD-RW but any + discs, like CD+RW are not compatible.
Basically all players will work with a CD-R, and usually CD-RW but the + ones are less compatible. If I knew your model CD player I could check for you, but that is probably the case. Stick with CD-R and you should be good to go.
Lastly, rarely, but sometimes, the drive may not like the disc brand you are using due to the composition used (like if the bottom is blue or greenish). Tends to be that blue or what they say is cyan discs work best. I use TDK and Verbatim branded CD-R and CD-RW, and they seem to work best.
Good luck!!

Wont play dvd or cd


Does this happen to all cds? If yes, your DVD/CDrom might need cleaning. Try cleaning it using a cd cleaner and let it spin for 30 seconds. If it still does not read cds, you can open the casing and clean the lens with a soft earbud damped in an alcohol and gently wipe on the lens. Put everything back and try playing cds again. Also, make sure that your cds are clean so that the lens wont be having hard time reading them.

Hope this helps. Goodluck!

Wont read some discs


People need to learn to leave more info if they want proper help!

What type of discs? You say some, are they CD-R, CD-RW, SACD, CD+R, CD+RW, standard store bought Audio CD?

When copying audio cds for playback in other players, always use CD-R to avoid any type of confilcts. CD-R will play in almost any CD player, even from the 80s. Some players say they will support CD-RW, but that is NOT GUARANTEED!

If it is Audio CDs, then the laser may be dirty. If it is MP3 cds or DATA cds, then try only putting one type of file on the disc, such as only MP3s, or only WMAs.

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

My teac dvd/cd player wont play some cds


Probably a codec problem on the notebook. rather than a drive problem. Try a 3rd party media player such as Real Player or Quicktime

Is this drive new, or new to you and has it worked before on your system with DVD's. Has your System been reloaded lately or been recovered from a System Crash? What Operating system is on your computer? Are the DVD's Blank, Movies or Software???
The drive is in your computer? What Brand? any Idea?
How long since you put a cleaning disc through the Drive?

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
