    Can't burn cd's pc see the drive but thinks the disc is full already and yes I put a new out of the package disc in. several actually.

    I have all I was told is there must be conflict between programs. Great thats really helpful. I have taken it in and had the local tech wizard try to fix it and he said the same thing. I bought and external burner and it does the same thing that the Acer does. it see's the drive and disc but shows and recognizes the disc as being full. Lets this be a lesson to all, I should have bought a Mac.

No music on burned discs


You need to try a commercial cd of any kind. You just want to see if it reads the cd. Then you want to try a dvd and see if it reads that. If it reads the cd but has trouble with the dvd then the heads are out of alignment. It might still write a cd but not be able to write a dvd as that require more accuracy and it doesn't have it anymore.

You may still be able to use the drive but you will have to replace it. The symptoms you describe are typical of the driver going out of alignment so I would say you are heading for replacement sooner or later.

These are not cost effective to repair anymore so all you can do is replace them. Unless you can get it replaced under warranty you can replace it for under $50 at any local computer store.

I have a gateway with windows xp and my dvd rom won't read dvd-r


it could be that your dvd drive is only able to read dvd discs not to burn them, if its a combo drive its very likely a cd burner that can read dvd discs.

if you send me the brand and model or the full name / details of the drive I could check on it.

Not find disc in drive


Sounds like you need to install a DVD decoder, Roxio, WinDVD and PowerDVD are good decoders.

Samsung SHW08A DVD±RW doesn't burn dvd+r


Its because you need a firmware update. The media you are currently using isn't recognized. I stumbled in here with the same problem. I haven't been able to find an update, so I will probably have to try a different brand of disc myself. The burner worked fine until I tried using a new pack of Verbatim discs.

Won't burn CD-r or DVD-R


Hi,
make sure that your program that is setup to record. i.e nero-img burn et,c. is set to look at the drive D:- Or E:- whichever letter your drive is assigned by the computer.
Also try using a different Blank-media. if any disk has failed a full write, without finalizing Or creating the Table Of Contents. It will read as Empty Or Blank. you can see This By looking carefully at the underside of the Disk, to see whether it has been burned by the laset. ( Towards The Centre ) if the Dye is darker on the inner-edge, then this is possible.
You can also try using a different Packet writing software, or re-install the program.
Hope this helps.
Mike @ Compurepair.

This will be a burner problem as in the laser is no longer able to read a disc and tell if it's full, empty or formated. I doubt it's a software problem, but you may have a faulty cdr disc so check a few or a different make as not all are compatable with all burner makes.
