If the door on your CD/DVD drive will not open when you push the eject button (on the front of the drive), Click on Start, My Computer, and Right Click on your CD/DVD drive. Then Click on Eject. If the door still refuses to open, you can insert a paper clip into the small hole on the faceplate of the drive and push it in until the door opens. If the door continues to refuse to open in the normal manner, you will have to replace the drive,

Burn project ejects blank DVD-r


If you are prompted to insert a CD/DVD blank disc into the Burner, you must have the proper UNUSED CD or DVD blank disk. You must use the SIZE disc that corresponds to the Size of the Data to be burned. A CD is 700 Megs thus anything greater than 700 Megs needs a larger disc such as a DVD that is 4.7 Gigs. If the data you are trying to copy to a disc is over 4.7G you need a Dual Layer DVD or BluRay that accepts 25Gigs.

After copying the dvd video content, and inserting the blank disc, Roxio does not recognize the blank disc and continues to say 'please insert blank disc' I have tried both DVD R and DVD WR. Please help!


If your roxio software does not read or recognize the disc that you are using, you can use other brands of disc to check if the disc that you are using is not compatible with the software.


Cheers . . .

I have a sony computer, the model where every thing is built in behind the screen. a CD is stuck inside and i cannot remove. anyone have any knowledge on what to do to remove same?


The CD, DVD or BD drive tray may not open when trying to eject a disc. This can occur if there is a mechanical failure, or if there is a disk stuck in the drive.
Please follow the following steps to resolve this issue:
  1. Because some applications can prevent the drive tray from opening, close all open applications.

    NOTE: If the Roxio DirectCD software is running, eject the CD using the Roxio DirectCD software.

  2. Attempt to eject the drive tray using the eject command of the operating system.
  3. Restart the computer to the BIOS by continuously tapping the F2 key on startup and, while in the computer BIOS, press the EJECT button on the computer.

    NOTE: If the drive tray ejects in BIOS, but not in the operating system, reinstall the CD, DVD drive.

DVDs I burn will not play on other players. Players reject disc


Check that the burner is finalizing the discs. This can be set in Roxio or in the optical drive properties. In Windows 7, right click on the optical drive, choose Properties, then the Recording tab. Then the Global settings lets you choose to finalize the disc on eject. Try a different brand of DVD+R and check that the other players support DVD+R discs. (I know some DVD players only support DVD-R.)

I hope this helps.

Burning a dvd


When you make a dvd you must "finalize" the dvd so it can be read in all players.

Error when attempting to write disk


Sometimes the driver that is used to burn CD's gets corrupted, you should try removing and re-installing roxio. The only other possibility is a bad CD burner drive, but these are dirt cheap to replace these days, you should easily be able to find one under 40$.

DVD disc won't play after using roxio's drag to disc


Try the disc in another computer. If it works then the problem is with your dvd burner. If not try burning another disc, if your computer can read it when your done then it may have been a freak thing. If not reinstall roxio or get new software.

Adding data file to existing CD-RW disc in Roxio


First off, for your information your Roxio is OLD, they now have Roxio 9.
But that will not solve your problem. Can you open the CD and copy and paste anything? Or is the CD "Read Only"? If read only, it is because when you "Finalized" the CD you optioned the "Write Protect" making writing to the disk impossible. This protects the disk from erasure too.
You will need to use another disk.
Otherwise you can just use the same method you used before to write to the disk, or Copy and Paste, or Drag and Drop.
The Write Protect is specific to the program you are running.
However, Roxio 7 and 9 program I have used ask, "Do you want to be able to write to this disk again?" or words to that effect. All you need to do is just put a check in the box (or not, if you want to write to disk again). This happens when you are ready to remove the CD or DVD from the drive. Then the program runs a "Finalizing" program before the disk automatically ejects.
