Yeah I had the same problem. The DVD Writer will not write and read DVDs, but functions great with CDs, so I forgot it as a DVD write and considering it as CD writer and using it. If possible if you want to make it work by risking then you can try changing the DVD regions and firmware. But, you will be at your own risk.

    Forget it as a DVD Writer and feel it as a CD writer, becoz i did the same thing. I tried a lot to fix this but failed. But, you still does not agree then there are two ways to messing up with this first is changing your region to suitable only but only 5 times and then firmware upgrading or replacing.

If you have tried different dvd-r and dvd-rw discs, unfortunately it's a sign that your writer is failing to read the discs correctly, this normally happens when the writer is about to give up, although it may still write and read cd's but not dvd's

Cant burn dvd

You need a dvd burner a burning program and a dvdr burnable disk to be able to burn a dvd
Burning computer files on a DVD can be a great way to backup your information.
Most one-sided writeable and rewritable DVD discs can store nearly five gigabytes of information, while two-sided writeable and rewriteable DVD discs can hold over eight gigabytes.

There are many programs available for purchase that you can use to burn a DVD.
For the sake of this tutorial, we will be using one of the most popular CD and DVD burning utilities Nero Burning ROM.

Read on to learn how to burn a DVD.
Insert your writeable or rewriteable DVD into your writeable DVD drive.

Click on your start menu and select "All Programs," "Nero" and "Nero StartSmart."
Locate the pull-down menu at the top of the window that shows "CD" displayed.

Click on the arrow to view the rest of the menu and select DVD.
Find the icons under the pull-down menu you just used.

Click on the "Data" icon. Then click on "Make Data DVD."
Click on the "Add" button when the Nero Express window opens.

Find the files on your hard drive that you would like to burn to the DVD and select them.
When you're done selecting files, click "Finished."


Select "Next" to get to the Final Burn Settings screen. If you can select the speed at which to write your disc, select the 8x option.

Click "Burn" and wait as your files are burned to the DVD. Click "OK" once the window pops up telling you the burn process was completed successfully. http://www.nero.com/enu/index.html

Nero 7 Ultra Advance-to-Time Index Problem Work-around

Posted under Nero 6 Ultra because there is no Nero 7 Ultra listing here on Fixya...

OK, I am going to tell you how I managed to work around this problem. I am posting this in the hopes it will save someone else the aggravation I had in stumbling around trying to find a procedure that would fix the problem. I found a work-around I can live with, so here's the problem and the solution follows. If it applies to you, I hope it makes your DVD-burning life livable again! Oh yeah, looks like Nero 8 is ready to come out soon. Just when you though it was safe.... anyway, here goes:

The Problem:

Burning DVDs using Nero 6.2 on Win ME was successful, and it allowed for advancing via time index. For example, I would burn a DVD and be able to go to any time point in the scene. However using Vista and Nero 7 Ultra, while DVDs burn successfully, the advance-by-time index is no longer available in DVDs burned under Vista with Nero 7. Details:

DVD burner: Buslink DBW1647-U2
O/S: Vista Home Basic
S/w: Nero, Ver. 7 Ultra, registered
DVD media: 16X Starlogic DVD-R
DVD player: Goldstar VM681M

The scenario is this:

1. Begin playing a chapter on the DVD
2. Click the chapter menu button on the remote.
3. Use up-down arrow keys on remote to try to get to timed index setting (ie, the one where if you select it and type "10:00" it will jump the scene to the 10:00 mark).
4. Can't select that option.

----

The Work-around:
1. Open Nero Vision and choose to create a DVD.
2. Access the Options by clicking More>> and make sure Nero SmartEncode is set to 'Disabled'. I think since Nero wants to convert everything to MPEG-4 that that might be a factor. Also, you may need to get some codecs, too. I am using the K-lite full pack available here: http://www.digital-digest.com/software/k-lite_codec_pack.html (Note that K-lite doesn't like other codec packs being on the same PC as it-- it nagged me to uninstall the DivX and Vista Codec Packs, and I did. I have discovered no problems so far since.)
3. Add your video files and step through the rest of the process. Settings to look out for: Automatically create chapters: NOT checked, Enable Forward/Backward Jumping: checked.
4. On the last screen, choose to Write to Disk instead of burning to the CD drive-- select a place to save the DVD-compatible files. Click "Burn" and off you go.
5. After your DVD files are written to disk (they will be in a folder called TS_VIDEO in the place you chose to save them to), fire up a copy of ImgBurn (http://www.imgburn.com/). [Maybe Nero's image burner will work too, I just haven't tried it. In any case this is known to work so I am using it here.]
6. Switch Mode to Build -- you need to build an .iso image file in order to burn it to DVD -- and select the TS_VIDEO folder holding your Nero-ed files. Indicate a name for the output file and run it. This should not take nearly as long as Nero took in creating the raw DVD files. The .iso file you created will be close to the same size as the raw DVD files are in the TS_VIDEO folder Nero created.
7. Now switch mode to Write and indicate the .iso file you built as the input and select the target DVD drive you are using, then run it. The burn process should not take long, either, compared with the other steps.
8. Test it in your DVD player-- you should be able to jump to time indexes now.

I have no idea why this works as opposed to the transcode-then-burn process that worked for me under Nero 6.2. There may well be other ways to deal with this problem, I just don't know what they are. Downside to this approach of course is that you need about 33% more disk space as compared with that required for transcode-and-burn (t-and-b: need space for the original files and Nero temp files; the .iso approach: need space for the original files, the DVD-compatible files Nero creates, and the .iso file created from that). However this is an alternate procedure, not a fix, and the only approach so far I have found.

Plenty of good DVD discs gave their lives to discover this process. I hope I can save you some misery and trips to the store for more blank DVDs by posting it here.

How to record from a website to cd on laptop

To burn cd/dvd you have to check :

1. Your laptop cd/dvd drive have what capability:
- cd writer = only burn cd
- cd writer/dvd reader(combo) = still only burn cd
- dvd writer = can burn cd, dvd single layer(4GB)
- dvd DL writer = can burn cd and dvd single 4GB and dual layer 8GB.
Other than those, is not possible.

2. Must have burn apps named:
- Nero
- Alcohol 120%
- other. search internet.

If you have them then using the apps to burn, just read the manual.

Koam114 is in Korean. I don't understand :)
But If you want songs from website, you should download it first.
Unless the site is giving you a step by step how to burn songs directly to your cd/dvd.
Once downloaded, would be easier to burn to cd/dvd.
