Solved: Need software to burn for Dell DVD/CD RW

Q: Solved: Need software to burn for Dell DVD/CD RW

I am in need of the drivers for my TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S162L

I have a 'roxio' CD from Dell, this might be it, but no mention of the DVD on it. Can I just use a 'free' third party software for this, it does play DVD,s just doesnt have anything to write to them.

Actually, its not the 'drivers' I need the writing/burning software.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:TweakBit Software is downloading to my laptop posing as DELL software! Is DELL aware of this?

Hello Sir, I have already replied to the same post you left on Facebook, but would like to repeat my message here.
We are sorry you had a negative experience with your computer that involved TweakBit products. I would like to clarify a couple of things so there are no misunderstandings. TweakBit does not come pre-installed on Dell computers and does not get installed automatically without user consent. We are in fact a Microsoft Gold Application Development partner and we do use Norton to test our software and certify it as virus-free. The only place in our software where you could have seen a mention of Dell would be the section that contains information on your computer system. Our software displays your computer brand, model and specs for your convenience, as many users have no idea where to locate this info when faced with the need to do maintenance on their computer or to call support.
I can assure you that TweakBit software is neither malware, nor does it contain any malware. We take customer safety very seriously and work with every complaint until the issue is resolved to the customer’s satisfaction. Our software comes with an unconditional 30-day money back guarantee, so if you purchased any of our products and did not like how they worked, you can submit a request at for an immediate refund.
We did have some issues with certain anti-virus programs flagging our software (hence most of the negative feedback on the web), but these were all false-positive detections and we’ve always worked with antivirus companies to get those resolved. We appreciate our customers reporting such false positives to us.
If you have any questions remaining or any concerns regarding TweakBit software, please don’t hesitate to submit a request at Thank you!

Thanks a bunch

A:Neo+G Burn!! What Software?..HELP

based on what I read at the neo website, burn with nero as DATA. When setting up the burning session in Nero, do NOT drag the main parent folder over to right-hand pane for burning. Instead, first open that main parent folder in the right hand explorer pane, then drag ALL it's contents (except the main parent folder itself) across to the left hand pane for burning. Nero will burn the files in the same order you have organised them, which is usually alpabetical or numerical order anyway (that's dictated by the way Windows works, not you).

I have  a Dell XPS 12 and have recently noticed that it is suffering from screen burn-in an issue that is widely reported on this laptop, further to this a number of articles indicate that given the widespread nature of the problem replacement screens are being offered even outside of the warranty period.
Despite this when I called Dell technical support I was first told that there was no known issue with the laptop and then subsequently I was told that the out of warranty replacements only stretched a further 90 days, at odds with information over the internet.
I was wondering whether this information was correct as it doesn't seem to match the other information available to me.

I recently bought the newest version of Roxio Easy CD and DVD Burning Software. I installed it on my computer and I create a project, but when I go to burn... it says that I need to insert a blank CD. The problem is I've done this already and it keeps ejecting the CD saying there is no blank CD in the drive.

I originally thought that maybe the CD Drive was malfunctioning, but when I click on My Computer and look at the CD Drives' properties, it reads that I have a blank CD in the drive.

I have tried to uninstall, reinstall, and update the driver for the hardware and that has not solved my problems.

A:Cannot burn to CDR with inbuilt Win XP software ?

You can't make an audio CD with the XP built in burner you have to use Windows Media Player or better yet Nero. If you want to make a Data CD of your MP3's then you right click the file with the MP3's in them, and choose Send To... your CD Burner. another file pops up saying " You have files waiting to be sent to the CD". Click on "Write these files to CD" and it will burn them.

Hey all,

Windows 7 had a built in DVD maker that was very helpful in burning video (.avi?) files to DVD*, but the program is not supported in Windows 10.

Burning the files straight to disk even from the media player app doesn't seem to allow the video to be played on normal DVD players.

*So either I am using the wrong format (.avi) and need to convert it, or I need software that can properly burn video files to disk as I need it to.

Any recommendations are most helpful. Thanks!

A:Best software to burn video files to DVD

Maybe buy mom a low cost Blu-ray player

A blu-ray player will play the dvd if it is burnt as a data disc and will play a lot of formats (depending on the make)

A Data DVD will not play on a regular DVD Player unless it is compatible with the format of the files.

if you have a DVD Player that is JPEG compatible... it will recognize a Data DVD that contains JPEG Photos and play a slide show.

As a general rule when planning to play the DVD on a regular DVD would create a Video DVD which requires DVD Authoring software.

I Understand the basic levels of DVD discs, and I thought my DVD Wizard pro that I bought 2 years ago would take off and run, but it didn't. My burner is 8X16. Is the disc that came with it supposed to make it burn or do you have to go aftermarket like 1.5 years ago. I'm just lost. Please send me to the education I so desire.

I have a conference on my computer that I have been burning for others, however, I ripped it in mp3 format, and am having to reburn it as wav. As of now, I only have windows media, and I have to one disc, burn it, and then close the program and reopen it to burn another session/disc. Any better, more smoother programs?


A:The Best Free Software To Burn Mp3s As Wavs?

You can use DeepBurner, and create an Audio disk, which would convert the mp3, to wav.You can also use Audacity to convert the mp3, to wav, then after you convert them, burn them to a disk.

It's not the drive or the disks, it's the way you are using the software. This is probably best in the Software forum, or if you have a friend who does a lot of burning, ask them to help you check the checks.

A:System image burn to external drive or burn to cds? Question in messag

Hello Trent,

It would be best to create the system image on a HDD instead. A CD/DVD is less reliable to restore from, and more expensive for how many you would need.

You can do what's in the NOTE box at the top of the tutorial below to keep multiple copies of system images on the same HDD. This way you can create a system image backup that you know is clean, rename the backup folder to keep it so new system images will not replace it. Just repeat this every so often to have a updated system image that you know is clean.

A:can i burn a cd/dvd while i'm defrgmenting a partition from where a want to burn data

I can't say that I've tried that myself. I guess it could be possible that the data could be corrupted if the files that you're burning are being moved at the time, but that chance is pretty low I suppose. Give it a try if you want to, but don't be surprised if everything runs extremely slow, or if the CD ends up having corrupted data. I'd advise either pausing the defrag or just waiting until it finishes.

Dell software system which is located in Dell software delivery? an image file Dell software delivery? on a hidden partition on the hard drive If so is MS Office purchased from them as an add-on or included in one of their quot deals quot handled in the same way That is is it included in that image file and no actual software installation disk for MS Office is then included with the computer I m on a committee purchasing computers for our church staff and need to hear from someone who s been there so that I have something to report back It seems to me that if the apps are just in that image file not actually accessible on a disk that a lot of the functionality Recovery console in WinXP or the ability to add or remove parts of Office would be missing It would sure help to know what to expect Personally I m a little leery about this I tend to favor purchasing locally where these things can be ascertained a little more definitely Any help would be appreciated nbsp

Well I've tried everything, followed install directions EXACTLY. Problem is when I attempt to record (burn) to a cd I get this error message which in turn aborts the write process: "Could not perform start of Disc-At-Once". Updated ALL software, still same-same. System is:

TDK veloCD 48/16/48
Nero Express
TDK Digital Mixmaster
Afreey CD-ROM 50X
AMD K6-2 450MHz
DFI K6XV3+ VIA Chipset

System is set up with cd-rom as SLAVE to HDD on Primary IDE channel. Cd-rw is MASTER on Secondary IDE channel.

I've tried EVERYTHING, I'm a patient man but family is not. Any help/suggestions greatly appreciated. GRM

I have a small problem with my DVD burner. I was using Memorex 8x dvd's with no problems to burn some of my movies on dvd. I just bought some TDK 16x dvd's and the disc ejects automatically before the burn process is finished. Anyone have any thought on this problem? I'm using a SONY DVD RW DW-D22A burner.


A:Solved: Can't burn onto DVD

Did you have the problem burning at 16X speed. If so you might want to first try a slower burning speed. You might also want to check if Sony has any firmware updates for the drive.

Hi, I have been having problems burning my cd's. I sent my computer to shop to be fixed because of other problems, but once I got my computer back I could no longer burn cd's. When I try to burn it tells me it doesn't recognize my burner. I use realplayer and I was burning music from realplayer before going into the shop and now it doesn't recognize it. What can I do to fix this? Oh, also when I go into my computer to open the cdr folder there is nothing there....please help!

A:[SOLVED] Can't burn CD's...

it sounds like you need to reinstall the driver for your cd burner. im new to this site so im not 100% sure if they provide drivers on this site but if you can get your make and model number you can download it for you have to register with them but its worth it if it fixes your problem.

I want to burn an non-copy-protected MPG file to DVD.

It seems like this should be a simple task, but after days of web searches, I'm either missing something simple, or it's not possible. Nearly all search hits point to posts on forums either from many years ago or with links to illegal copy protection cracking software.

I have Nero 7 Ultimate. I'd consider purchasing Nero 9 if I could confirm it contained this functionality. I downloaded and install the trial version of Nero 9, and it appears that the Nero Vision component may require a separate purchase.

I have an AVI video, which is 1 hour and 15 minutes long and i want to burn it to DVD. I have a built in DVD player and burner and loads of blank discs which work. I used to get my next door neighbour to do it for me, but they have moved and I dont have there number (well iv lost it).

Please can anyone tell me what software I need to burn it, and how to burn it. I dont want to pay for the software though, its gotta be freeware.

Thanks all,

I have tried CD-Rpro by Maxell and DVD-RW by memorex and I can not get any audio (music) to burn to either of these. I keep getting that message to insert a disc, no disc in drive etc.
Any suggestions on a better CD or DVD. I want to be able to play it on a CD player.

I am using windows 7 home premium and 2 Memorex cd/dvd burning roms with Deepburner and all of the sudden it isn't burning data cd's. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but that didn't help. I've tried several freeware cd/dvd burning programs and nothing is helping. I would really appreciate any help. Thank you.
