It sounds to me like it is one of two things. More likely that you are using a very low quality DVD. Yes there is a difference in the media that you put in and too cheap is just that, cheap. Not all the dyes that are put into a disk are equal. You can try to buy better name brand disc and try that as well. The other possibility is the that you are not finalizing the disc once it's been burned. I've noticed that on Nero the defaults tend to favor multi-session discs and use "write at once" instead of "disc at once." So try using the disc at once feature or finalizing the disc to see if that helps. I know that some legacy drives have a hard time with multi-session discs still. I hope that helps. I know my Sony drives works great and I've been very happy with it.

I have a samsung cd r rw sw 240b installed (WinXP) and it plays/burns CDs & DVDs but won't burn data/video on DVDs. What to do?

find it hard to believe that this device will burn dvd's as it will only burn cd's you require a dvd writing device to burn and read dvd's data or video with 3rd party software such as nero or nti

My computer wont recognise my dvd burner but it

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.

DVD burns ''successfully''...but actually burns nothing!

What comes to mind is that you are burning to an image file and not your actual burner. Make a small data DVD and name it something obvious such as aaaa. After completion of the disk, do a search for the file and see if it is in actuality on the computer. If it is stored as an image file, you need to select the recorder type to your actual burner.

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.

New DVD burner won't read blank DVD-r's.

Make sure your burner software supports your burner. Older software doesn't read and write the newer burners properly.
