What fix to apply to HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B in Dell Dimension E310 so it can read/play a dvd movie?


Try the following:

1. Go to the Dell.com support site and be sure you have the latest updates for your computer's operating system and the DVD drive, especially the DVD drive's drivers BIOS.

2. Make sure you have the software to play the movie, like Sonic, Windows Media Player, Power DVD, Quicktime, etc. and be sure they are the latest versions.

3. Depending on the movie format, not all DVD drives will play all DVDs. The most common discs are DVD-R and DVD+R and file types like *.avi, *.mpeg, *.mp4, *.mov and then commercial formats. Also try the movie in another machine or DVD player and see what happens.

I have an un-formatted DVD-RW. I want to record music on it. First how do I format it so I can record music, and second, can I record music on a DVD-RW?


No you cannot record music to a DVD-RW. You must use CD-R media to record music as CD players cannot read DVDs. However you can burn the music to the DVD if you plan on using a DVD player to play the music. I beleive some recording hardware does allow you to use DVD's, but most use CD-R media or digital media such as a hard drive or flash media.

Using Windows XP. Want to copy vidoe from Media


Is the drive you are using a DVD writer or only a DVD reader? The drive that writes to RW disks is labeled DVD/RW or DVD Recordable.
These are the only drive types that will read and write a DVD/RW disc.

MY DVD PLAYER ON MY COMPUTER WILL NOT READ INSERTED DVD-RW IT SAYS IT IS A DVD RAM


There are three DVD types: DVD-RW, DVD+RW and DVD RAM
Your computer must be able to read the DVD format or type that is inserted. This is not something where you can just download a program to change. It is in the hardware for your computer. Your computer tried to read the title track of the DVD that you thought was "DVD-RW" and it could not read it but based on the signature that it read thought that it was in "DVD RAM" format.

Solution: This computer will not read that DVD. Either get the information on a compatible formated DVD or find another machine that has DVD RAM capability to read it.

How do I get a Verbatim DVD RW disk to record a file that i have downloaded


1. You need a drive that will record on a DVD RW.
2. You need software that will let you record to a DVD RW (such as nero, roxio, there are others)

If you have the above the two, it depends on the software you use on how to record to the DVD RW.
