Use DVD Decryptor, and then dvd shrink. For added benefit use either anydvd or ripit4me to remove copyright

First thing would be to test to see if you can burn a data dvd with Nero. If you can, than its not a problem with the drive. If your burner can't burn a regular data dvd, return it. If it can, then it is very likely the software you are usuing. Nero can't burn copyrighted dvds at all. If you havne't tried copying other dvds than you should definatly do that. No software, at least that I'm aware of can can copy every dvd, different dvds use different encryptions, and they are coming out with new methods it seems like all the time. I would recommend Dvd Shrink and Clone Dvd. I have not been able to copy every dvd I have, but I have been able to backup the ones I really need backuped.

Hi, i recently purchased a LG dvd burner and dont have a installation cd or software. Is there another way to fix this problem?


Hello, Your computer will automatically install the basic drivers for the burner to view cds but to burn a dvd or music cd or data cd or photo cd you will need software to do so. Windows XP and newer operating systems have a simple burning software using Windows Explorer which will pull the appropriate application automatically. I recommend a program such as Nero which originally comes with most burners. But for a more advance and controlled burning program Roxio has the easiest and most versatile program for about 50.00. Keep in mind if you want to make back-up copies of bought DVD movies or software you will have to have a specific program such as DVDFab. I can send you a copy of the actual software Cd that originally comes with your burner if you need it as I have bought several LG burners which now I have multiple copies of the software with OEM Keys. They have Nero V6.6 which is good for simple disk burning. Also keep in mind when buying blank disk NEVER buy the cheap unknown brands or the cheesy store brand disks as you will waste more disk due to bad coatings than you would if you bought better brands such as Memorex or Sony. Verbatim brand is a good inexpensive disk perfect for learning how a burner works due to the cost being reasonable and if you make a mistake burning the disk its not as bad a monetary loss. After you learn how to use the burner and program and you are ready to make good permanent disks then get an archival type disk with at least a 50 year storage time, (Your local computer store will help you with picking out the right kind, these disks are expensive but if you want to store vital photos or such this is the kind you need). Also A DVD-R is the most versatile disk for most players old and new and a DVD+R if more for burning on the "fly" and for newer expensive players. A CD/DVD±RW means you can reuse a single disk more than once but are very unreliable.

Just purchased, and trying to install HP dvd1170e DVD-RAM Burner. It is recognized, but cumputer running Windows XP does not fine driver, and dvd1170e is not functional. How do I solve this?


These devices require software to burn DVD's and CD's that is NOT just a driver...

A driver is not enough... typical software is NERO and other such as CD Creator, etc..

A DVD is quite different than talking to a USB memory stick or even a hard drive and you can;t just copy a file to it like you can a hard drive.

Typically using programs such as NERO, you copy to a list within NERO and when you tell it to burn the disc, it gathers all the pieces you have selected and goes about the operation...

123CopyDVD.exe has stopped working......


First, Uninstall your program using Add/Remove Program in Control Panel.

Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs

Note: Be aware of shared files don't remove them, it will affect other programs that use that file

After Uninstall, restart your computer

Then start again, proceed to installation of your program.

Blank DVDs turn my DVD Burner into a CD Drive


Not knowing what OS you're running or what version of Nero you have, I'll make a few assumptions. If you're running Vista with Nero 7, Nero doesn't always "play nice" with Vista. It's a memory hog (all video editing programs are) but it tends to hang up a lot and for some reason, runs worse in Vista than in XP. (just my observation)

I've had to re-install Nero twice due to similar problems. (lack of drive recognition, burns ab-ending etc) . You've probably already uninstalled/reinstalled the burner so I would uninstall Nero and reinstall it. Best of luck and please post back with any questions.

HOW DO I COPY A DVD TO MY ACER 6920G LAPTOP THEN BURN IT TO BLANK DVD. HAS A BLUERAY READER/REGULAR BURNER AND FROM WHAT I CAN SEE, HAS SOFTWARE THAT BURNS TO DVD FROM LAPTOP BUT NOT DVD TO LAPTOP


You can use a DVD copy program like Nero if there is one on your computer.

Nero checks to make sure that you DVD isn't copy protected before it copies it. If it is you won't be able to copy it.

Windows XP or Vista does't provide DVD copy software built into Windows.

Cd/dvd burner for labeling


Yes, Ahead Nero. You can download the trial version here. once you see how the labeling software is quite well suited you can go back to the nero.com online store and just download the serial number for $69.99 Otherwise, the retail package is $99.99

I've used Nero for years now and I don't upgrade each and every time a new version comes out.

Nero is a do all software package, you can create and edit videos for DVD, copy disk to disk, etc. etc.

If you want only a labeling software program you want to buy Sure Thing CD/DVD Labeler for $29.99 available from most stores like Office Depot and Staples. You can find it online too at NewEgg.com for example.

Hope this fixes you up and appreciate your rating.

No software??


Nero is a great program for burning CDs/DVD's. It will NOT burn copy-protected DVD's though.I recommend DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink for all your movie-copying needs.

Dvd burning problems


It could be due to less memory in your drive C:/ or where the software is installed. you need to use more memory by deleting or transferring some data to other partitions of the hard drive.

Hope it might help.
