L305D-S5930 dvd wont burn documents to a dvd disc


You need a program, like nero.
if that doesn't work then put a DVD in the drive & see if the computer picks it up in the my computer.
the first thing that goes in a CD/DVD-RW drive is the DVD heads, thats if your drive is a CD/DVD-RW.
Have a look on the front of the drive tray, if it say CD-RW DVD ROM then it doesn't burn DVD's it only plays them.

PIONEER BURNER BURNING BUT DISC EMPTY SAYS DISC FINISHED BURNING BUT WHEN TRYING TO PLAY SAYS DISC EMPTY AND I CANNOT USE IT AGAIN


What OS and disc brand and type are you using? Try a different brand; some disc manufacturers seem to make more "coasters" than others. If you are not using RW(rewritable) discs, make sure to cancel the autoplay "Format disc" option for blank discs in most Windows OS versions. I chose to turn off autoplay.

I hope this helps.

(Yes I made a few coasters. So far I've found that Verbatim DVD +R DL discs are good. CDs are fine with most brands. However, other reviewers say that the plant where the optical discs were made matters.)

Download the _FREE_ "Ashampoo Burning 6" software from http://www.majorgeeks.com -- it is _free_ software that you can use to write to CD-R/CD-RW/DVD-RW/DVD-R/DVD+R media.

My disc records fine, plays great on the Magnavox, but no other player can read the disc?


You must finalize a disc before it can play on other machines. Please refer to your documentation for how to finalize a disc.

Discs will not play back on dvd


What DVD's are you using +R/RW -R/RW some formats may not work especially on non-branded media some DVD players wont even play CD-R but will play some CD-RW of the correct brand.

I suggest that you try your finalized DVD in your PC then create an image using ImageBurn then burn the image onto a branded media and try again. Most firmware on DVD burners are very forgiving and will support a wider range of manufacturers and formats.

Hope this helps, you might want to look on your DVD players website for updated firmware you will need a blank CD and create a update disc using your computer.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try to clean the lens using a CD disc cleaner. Additionally, verify that your blanks are either DVD-R or DVD-RW.

LG LS50 DVD/CD-RW DRIVE won't recognize blank dvd-r


Yes does not read DVD-R because if your LS50 Labeled like this (DVD/CD-RW) means that can read only all DVD Disc and cannot write on DVD blank only CD blank.


You can burn only on the blank CD-RW or any blank CD.

Not reading dvd r or rw as writable disk


It sounds like you are having issues with all DVD writable disks. From the specs I was able to find online about your DVD writer, DVD+RW discs may not be compatible with the the drive. Make sure you are using DVD-RW (note the minus instead of +). I think you might need to reinstall your DVD drivers. This should solve the issue.
