If your CD-writer previously work, and now does not work, i.e., cannot "read" a "blank" disk, it's time to spend $40 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer drive.

Burn a Data CD or DVD in Windows 7 Using Media Player


You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player. An audio CD can contain just approximately eight minutes of music. On the other hand, if you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player, it will be able to hold numerous hours of music. Video files and pictures can also be added to the data discs.
When you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7, the Windows Media Player does not transform the selected files to a different format prior to saving them to a blank data disc, so the files stay in the compressed condition. This allows you to put much more items on a single disc.As the format of the files is not changed, the quality of the files remains the same.

You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player as follows:
  • Click Start.
  • Click All Programs.
  • Select Windows Media Player.
  • Click the Burn tab in the Player Library.
  • Click Burn options and select Data DVD or CD.
  • Insert a blank disc into the CD or DVD burner of your computer.
  • Close the AutoPlay dialog box if it comes into sight.
  • Some people have more than one CD drive in their computer. If you have multiple CD drives in your computer too, select the one you would like to use in the navigation window.
  • Look for the songs you want to burn.
  • In order to make your burn list, drag the songs from the details pane in the center of the Player Library to the list pane which is on its right side.
  • You can also change the order of the items in the burn list by dragging them upward or downward in the list.
  • To remove a song from your list, simply right-click on the item and click on Remove from list.
  • After you finish making your list, click upon Start burn.
It can take a while to burn a data disc. If your selected items cannot fit in one disc, you also have the choice of burning the rest of the items to a different disc. A data DVD is not the same as a DVD-Video disc ex. the movie DVD you buy or rent from the store.

I created a burn list, inserted a blank cd-r...and the "start burn" button remains unavailable. How do I fix this?


I've run into this before. Media Player sux for burning. Use an OEM or free version of something like Roxio or Nero or even just use iTunes (free as well).

I download video from my flip video, but I cannot burn to DVD-RW...it says to insert CD which I have already done


What CD are you using to Burn then movie?

Get a Blank DV Rewriteable CD (make sure its blank)

Format the DVD CD by right clicking it from Windows Explorer and follow the instructions. (this should not be neccessary especially if its a blank CD)

Use a normal copy and paste from Windows Explorer to copy the movie file or folder into the DVD drive.

this process absolves the issue of media formats and portability. Also most CD DVD Burning Softwares are not compatible with some players.

Error message/cannot burn cd in cd burner


This seems to me to be an AutoPlay issue, where the default action for blank CD-media is to format it, and might be a feature of your burning software. To resolve this, you could try the following:
  1. Open AutoPlay by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking AutoPlay.
  2. In the list next to the device or type of disc, click Ask me every time.

Can not burn cd


Windows Media Player supports burning a music CD from your playlist. Help on using the software is available from the Help menu on the toolbar at the top of the window. The Acer may also have been supplied with another burning program such as Nero or Roxio. Again, these programs have help available. You can also find additional help online by searching for a specific problem.

Personally, I use and recommend InfraRecorder (available at infrarecorder.org). It's a free open-source burning program that's pretty easy to use.

Now, if you're still having problems, please post a follow-up comment with the details (what you're trying to do, the software you're using, errors that are popping up, etc.) and those of us here should be able to get you going.

Problems burning cd's using my memorex dvd multi recorder 16x


It can be CD-blank media problem. Try another brand or if you use CD-RW try to use CD+RW.
Also try to use simulation mode. If it works fine it can be CD-blank media problem.
Good Luck
