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

Taiyo Yuden DVD-R DL discs not burning in Nero 6


Are you sure that you are putting in a blank disc? What happens when you put the disc inside the DVD writer? does it show up as a blank disc? This could be one of the reason for the multi session disc box getting greyed out.

I have downloaded and burned the version 5.50 both to cd-r & dvd-r the .exe and iso and still get a no title screen and no update what am i doing wrong?


  • It is recommended to use CD -R disc to create the firmware update disc.
  • I hope you're clear with downloading the update from support page.
  • Once you download and save the file in the folder in the computer, you can double click the file to extract.
  • You will be prompted to save the UPDATE_BDPS300_VER0550.ISO file in a folder.
Most of the customers will be making mistake here after...
We need to use a burning software which is capable to burning discs from ISO images. ISO image is nothing but a RAW format of burned image.
I will give you the instructions to burn using Nero.. Steps will be almost same in all ISO capable software.
Open installed nero software from computer. You may locate it under Start Menu programs.
Go to File Menu (Some times you will get a wizard where you can select the Image Burning option or burn ISO option)
Navigate the extracted .ISO file we saved in the computer.
follow the onscreen instructions.
Insert the disc when ever Nero asked to insert
Hope this helps. If you need any assistance. Please get back to me. I will be more than happy to assist you. Thanks for understanding.

DVD writer not working


Let's make sure that Nero is not causing the problem. Try this:
-Insert a blank CD or DVD
-Find a file that you want to burn to disc
-Right-Click on said file and select Send To --> DVD-RW Drive (D:) (or whatever your recordable drive is labeled)
-Open My Computer, double click on your recordable drive
- You should see your file ready to be burned to disc
- In the left-hand panel, you should see a link that says "Burn these files to disc" or something similar - click this link and see what happens

If this process works and properly burns a disc, your issue is not with your drive but with Nero. If this process does NOT work, then you may need to reinstall drivers for your DVD writer or replace the drive if it is faulty.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

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.

Re-nero 6 buffer does not start.


Hi, there thanks for the email reply with offer of premium service, i have managed to solve this problem now and would share the experience with this forrum. Here is how it goes. I got this solution from another forrum which i tried and worked. 1. download utility-tools cleaner from Nero web and erase the old nero 6 with this cleaner, 2.then re-boot pc, 3,after this re-install Nero 6 and bingo it worked wonderfull. it takes 11 min, for Dvd and 8 min for cdr burning, which is just about normal.
My advice to my friends on this forrum is in addition to above process is to avoid buffer fluctuation is to clean the system before burning, ie use ccleaner for rubbish files then advanced windows care 2,registery cleaner, both programs are free for home use, Or similiar programes, another point to remember is to close down all unneccesary programms running in the background to have more ram to speed up burning process. I hope this would be helpfull to any of my friends on this forrum if you have similiar problem with Nero 6 burning.
Good Luck
Shamsher.

Burning files to DVD..............


Hi,
You should be able to fill a DVD with files and burn using Nero.
Open Nero Smartstart ,Set to DVD,data,make Data DVD
then open a browser window, ie press the windows flag key and "E", locate the directory of files you want to burn, drag them into the Nero page. You should see the progress bar at the bottom of the screen gradually move towards the 4500MB position - this is the maximum for a DVD.
When you have listed all the files you want to burn, press next, change the disc name if you wish. Your DVD drive should be listed above the disc name - something like E:ASUS DRW-1608P3S ( this is my drive) then press "Burn"
If all is well, the drawer will open and you must insert a blank DVD into the drive. The files will then be written to the the disc.

If it does not work let me know and we can investigate further.

cheers
