    I can burn fine. The DVD drive just won't read a burned DVD. It picks up burned CD and any other DVD/CD, but not a burned one!?!

Maybe you did not burn the DVD in the right way, Make sure that you use a DVD burning software tool to burn a DVD instead of directly copying the files to the DVD. You can try Leawo DVD Creator which is quite easy to use.

Use a 3rd party DVD burning software, it can burn a complete DVD easily.

SOURCE: i can't burn cd

You may have exceeded the CD capacity.
A capacity of a CD is about 680MB any thing over that will cause it not to continue.
Leave about 80 mb for leader or ending.

First try to use lens cleaner disk it will clean up the lens. If this also not help so it must be the sign that your dvd drive lens become weak. If you plan to replace the lens only it will cost around the same price of new dvd drive. So its better to purchase a new one.

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds


It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

Not able to burn dvds from file


Hi,

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.

Burn DVD


Read on your optical drive. If it burns CD's it reads CD-RW. In order to burn DVD's it needs ro read DVD-RW. If it reads DVD-ROM it will only read DVD's not burn them.

A good external burner is Plextor. You can get one at Walmart, or you can check Ebay and find an internal to replace the one in your machine. They are fairly easy to replace, and you won't have a bulky external to carry around.
