I bought an io magic external dvd burner brand new and it wont work. anytime i try to use it to burn read or format or anything it speeds up and i get an error message using vista , windows dvd maker, roxio, or nero that says simply unable to complete task. the burner itself shows the light on and never stops spinning until you eject.the pc shows the drive self installs and allows access to the drive, but it still wont work.

Hi. i'm about ready to pull my hair out trying to get my idvd8p io magic external usb 2.0 dvd-rw to actually use usb 2.0. It always connects to a root hub that is OpenHCD, not Enhanced, so it runs way, way...


Try hooking the unit directly to PC. No hub unless you use an AC outlet or USB I/OYCable Mod # AC-YCAB it requires 2 USB ports for power. With this cable no need for AC Power

My computer wont recognise my dvd burner but it will read and play dvds just wont burn them and when i try a new dvd burning tool it cant fint my burner


Is your DVD drive a Combo DVD ROM and CD Read/writer? If so it cannot burn DVD only reads DVDs and read and burn CDs.
If the program cannot find a DVD burner then either the burning software cannot support that model DVD burner ot the DVD burner is faulty.
To test the DVD burner, remove it and install it into another computer to test the burner to see if is faulty.

Burns dvds fine wont burn dual layer dvds


This is in no way a proper technical answer, but certain DVD burners like specific brands of media, I have heard this for years and it's true, but you seem to have tried several types of media brands. I would try a -R, from Verbatum, if that doesn't work take it back and try a different model, you have done everything that you are supposed to.I found that the -R works best for me in my desktop and laptop, one is Lightscribe other is not, the -R works best for me.

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...

Hp 740e not reading blank dvd discs


Don't wanna sound like a Doomsayer but I think it has burned its last burn...

Try to clean it first, if it still doesn't work, then it is time for a new one.

Had a similar experience and we found out that the drive had conked out.

EXTERNAL DVD PROBLEMS


I think the problem, if its a video dvd you are burning is the read in read out that it cannot finish, so thats either a corrupt video file that cannot be read, as burning is the last thing a writer does after caching the image or you need to try a different brand of dvd. A tip is also try to burn at a slower speed as sometimes a faster speed results in more dvd glass coasters.

DVD Burner


Even if the burner is very quick, I suggest that you don't try and use it at it's maximum speed, but the lowest. Try 4x, and if it gives you DVDs that work, then you can start working upwards if 4x is too slow for you, untill you find the fastest speed that gives you working DVDs. Also shut down all other programs while burning, especialy heavy ones. If this is not it, and you keep having problems, add a comment. Good luck!
