Hi im wesley. open your pc and make sure the cable is not damaged that goes to the cd drive if its fine take the drive out open it up and inside you will see a little glass head in the drive its blue inthe middle take and ear bud and gently clean it but be very carefull its very fragile and will brake with the ease if you touch it to hard because there is a little spring under it suspending it and if it brakes you will have to replace the hole thing. after cleaning it it should work as the head might of just gotten dirty and wouldnt read. but if it still doesnt work its packed up and you need a new one.

Burned cd will only play on my computer. How do I get it to play other places


It depends what setting you used to burn the disc. Some will only play on certain players. Many people don't also have the right CODECS to play video files with their media players. But they can download CODEC packs from the internet for free.

Error . Cannot continue with the burning process, because no burning device Was detected. Install a burning device and restart burning program


Will it burn stuff okay using windows native burning support? If not, go here and download the CD Gone utility. Next, uninstall your CD/DVD drive in Device Manager, run the utility, and reboot. Your drive will be re-installed, and should work properly, unless it has mechanical/firmware problems. This is a Registry patch program, and fixes a problem that frequently happens. HTH.

NEW gcc-h23n will not read anything


If not reading DVD is a pattern (it won;t read ANY DVD, no matter if it's a burned one or an original movie) then the lens is dead. I'm afraid you'll have to go get a new one (new drives are very cheap, usually around 25-30$)

Burned DVDs play on PC but won't play on home player. I have 3 PC (2HPs and 1 Parts built),running XP home, pro, media. I bought 2 Samsung SH-S182 DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner, and have tried them on all 3...


Nero 6 and 7 does not provides us the facilitiy of burning the DVD in appropriate DVD Format. Instead it burns the DVD in the normal DATA Format, which is not supportable by our DVD Player. To play the DVD in our DVD Player we should burn the DVD in the appropriate DVD Burner which itself converts the extension of the movie and make it proper for a DVD Player to read it. It also adds some files to the DVD which is sometimes used by the dvd player in running the DVD.

Thank You
