    I have the same problem. I can play cd's and DVD's but I cannot copy anything. I can rip but then it keeps telling me to put in a blank cd, which is already in. I have tried windows and cd creater to burn with. I have reloaded the drivers but nothing works.

  • gazzamanna Sep 04, 2008

    When I put a blank unformatted DVD disc into the drive the DVD-ROM drive label on my computer changes to 'CD-ROM'. I cannot format the DVD, and i certainly can't write anything to it! Haven't read through the answers here yet but will do now.

What burning software are you trying to use? Also, try uninstalling and reinstalling the hardware from Device Manager

Not able to burn dvds from file


if your DVD Drive ( ROM ) read-Only-Memory. then it will only read DVDs And Not Write Them. You need a DVD RW Drive, to be able to write. If Your CD Drive Is A CD/RW That means its a CD Re-writable drive. try a Burn To CD.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs

the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.


DVD-ROM drive reads CDs, but not DVDs Dell x-200

It shouldn't be a driver issue. DVD drives are natively supported by XP. What software do you have installed for playing DVD'? Windows Media Player 11 would be excellent, and it's free from Microsoft. PowerDVD and WinDVD are also good, but you have to buy them.

Which operating system of Windows are you using to burn them?

If you are using Windows XP you will need a program such as Nero to burn them. The send to DVD doesn't work in XP. It will only work on Cds. One should have came with the DVD.
