    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.

My burner don't recognize the blank disc


Good day,

One of the reasons why a CD drive won't recognise a disc is if d disc is corrupt or not good again. I'll suggest that you buy another one and see if the cd drive will see it. If not, try putting a non-empty disc (either a movie disc) and see if it works. If it doesn't, then d burner might have a little problem.
But if it does work, please feel free to reply.

Thank you for using Fixya!

My Philips CDRW/DVD/ CDD 5263 for Dell Inspiron 5100 won't burn anything? Reads and shows what's on the cd but won't let me burn anythign to a CD/


Sounds like the software your using to burn with isn't compatable with your burner.If your using a software and not windows.Get Ashampoo Burning Studio which is a free full version for 30 days.It supports most drives.Also try cleaning the eye with a cotton swab and a little alcohol,swirling the cotton swab around and around in both directions very lightly.Repeat at least twice and let dry.Put the cd in and try burning with it and the Ashampoo burning software.If the drive is not faulty it should burn without a problem.Also make sure you use cd-r or cd-rw discs and try it on a couple of new ones because sometimes the cds are bad even when they are new.

What does "multi layer support" mean. Does it write multi layer discs? or is it able only to read them? Also, what is a lightscribe?


Multi-Layer support means the drive can Read/Write a Dual-Layer discs.

Lightscribe means you can create a label on a disk.

Check these Links fro more information:

I can not be abel to read writed CD


These discs that are written on other systems, were they finalized or are they multi-sessions discs that have been left open? Some drives have difficulty dealing with multi-session discs created by other drives. By telling it it is OK to format the CD, it is writing a new TOC (Table of Contents) that is blank since it did not see anything on the disc previously (so it didn't know there was anything to carry over from previous sessions). Now all other drives that try to read this disc are now reading an empty TOC and figure it is a blank CD.

You can try writing a disc on another computer and making sure it finalizes it, then try reading it with your laptop. You can also try to burn data to a CD on your laptop making sure the disc is finalized and try to read it on another computer to verify these suspicions.
