MY NEW DVD BURNER WONT BURN ONTO DISCS

YESTERDAY I BOUGHT A SONY DVD+_R 20x and I am able to create slide shows with the NERO software it came with, but no matter what it will not actually transfer or burn onto the disc. I noticed I have dvd+r 16x discs, however I can not find dvd's that come in any speeds over 16, only cds that do, can I use those? Their speed is up to 52x. Please help!!!

I beleive that you may need to reinstall the drive and update the drivers,
if youve got XP OS then you will need SP2 updates also.
the blank dvds are x16 speed and blank cdr are x52 speed.
the format you are going to write in determines the disk you need the use,DVD blanks are 4,7GB and CDR and 700MB

Check your help section to better understand Neros functionality and the many formats it is capable of....

Once you figure it out then make a HOW TO DO STUFF FILE
Store the documents here for future reference.....

Hope this helps,please rate me thanks

A freind let me borrow their hp dvd 1040e external 20x multiformat dvd writer. i can burn the music on cds fine with itunes, but i cant figure out how to use the litescribe to burn images on the tops....


You will need Nero burning software. It will after the normal burn show you a screen where you place the image you want to burn for lightscribe. Another failing with lightscribe is that you must have lightscribe discs!

Dual Layer how to burn?


The software that came with the DVD-DL device should be able to burn 8GB to dual-layer media.

If not, access http://www.MajorGeeks.com and download the _free_ "Ashampoo Burning 6" software.
Install it, and use it to create & burn onto dual-layer media.

I want to know if a sata dvd writer can burn dvd


Hi...

Are you kidding hehehehe it's a joke, Of course it can burn, if your unit is a DVD writer it can burn a DVD no matter if it is a IDE or SATA type of cable connector. Be sure that you will have a burner software (like Nero, power to go, etc.) installed in your computer.

Hp 1040e dvd writer plays cd's but not dvd's. Can't record DVD - keeps asking for blank disc when it's already inserted


What brand DVD's are you using? Its best to use the same brand discs as your burner. This is because in the design and testing stage they are using their own brand of discs to test them. Some other brand discs may be thicker or thinner and not read correctly. The "blank" disc may have already have been written on. Make sure the Nero software is loaded on your computer that came with it.

With sony dvdirect vrd-mc5, can I burn pictures from my computer


Yes and no... you can not hook it up directly to your computer and burn copies of pix. You can however transfer your pictures to a memory card (SD, MS or CF) and then put that in the VRD-MC5 and burn your pix.

Hope this helps!

HP DVD 740e wont burn Dual Layers anymore!


Try re-installing the software associated with the burner, so it installs the necessary drivers and files needed for the burner to work according to your needs.

Also check the connections and cables... sometimes moving it around causes the cables to loose some contacts.

Hope this helps...
