SOURCE: Sony DVD RW DRU-710A won't burn dvds

I have had the exact same problem with this drive. It worked great for about a year. Now it will only burn and play cd's. I did some research and found that it operates two separate laser wavelengths, one for cd and one for dvd. Chances are that the blue dvd wavelength is not functioning. It would be less expensive to replace the drive with a new one than to fix this one. Trust me I researched it.

SOURCE: Burned CD's won't play in auto CD player

I had the problem of burned CD's not playing in my car. I used a CD-R and burned it at "slow" burn rate. Now I don't have a problem with playing the cd's in my car player. Try it, it worked for me.

I have a HT-DT-ST- RW/DVD GCC 4480B it will burn cd-r but it wont even read dvd-r I just want to burn dvd-r but it wont even read blank one


> CD-RW / DVD-ROM

Sorry, but this device is not a DVD-writer.

This device _should_ read (non-blank) DVD media.
If it does not, then the cheapest solution is to spend $40
to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

My lg dvd writer could not read all dvds (it reads some cds and dvds). What may i do?


This may be caused by bad media, or incompatible formats. There are a variety of media formats for CDs and DVDs. Your reader may not read them all. What model are you running, and what type of media (DVD-R, DVD+R, etc) are you using?

Teac DW-224E-c - cannot burn DVD's


The answer is what you profess. The drive can burn CD's, read CD's and also read DVD's. Everytime I try and burn a DVD I have an unrecognized drive and the properties always show no disk: The drive burns CD's ie;music, but cannot burn DVD it can only read DVD like you say!
