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.)

You sure that Nero isnt using the image recorder. top tabs "recorder" > "choose recorder", as opposed to the actual DVD burner.?

Hey guys,
I think I know the answer to this but I'll ask anyways.
I have a LG GSA-H10N DVD+R DL burner. It will read any discs except for the ones I need it too. The DVD+R DL discs, blank and ones with stuff on them. IT will read any other discs, any ideas?

A:DVD+R DL Burner not reading dl blanks

I am having same problem now

but this is a weird one....
I had burnt an image file to a dvd yesterday... and I used it to install etc..

Now this morning on my desktop only reads the blank as "Empty"
And the same for my laptop..reading disc as empty..

SO I immediately burnt a new copy off the image...
and that copy is being read as blank as well!

Now both copies aren't working...
and the thing is the first copy worked fine yesterday..

Is this a drive problem?

Liteon DVDRW SOHW832S 8X Burner, it's about 1 & a half years old. I had xp pro SP2, nero 6.6, clone cd 5.9, dvd shrink 3.2, dvd decrypter & had to format & reinstall xp home SP1 (I don't have xp sp2). Now the burner doesn't recognize some dvd-r 's that it used & worked fine when I had xp sp2. It would just spin & blink make noise and says insert a blank.......but sometimes it burns on the same dvd-r that it didn't read previously!!!

So, is it time to get a new burner? XP SP2? Or inferior blanks.

What Brand meida? it is possible you have a bad batch. also check to see if the drive is operating in DMA or PIO mode. you can find out in device manager under IDE ATA|ATAPI Controllers, look in the advanced tab on the IDe channel the drive is on.

I have been burning my dvds with convert x to dvd with no problems up until this . Every time I go to burn a DVD it will convert but when it burns it is taking so long (I usually burn at 6x) I did a speed test and it said it was burning at .05%. It would probably take 5 hours to burn a normal movie,Anyone know why this may be happening? Thanks in advance

A:My dvd burner has slowed was burning at 6x now burning at .05%

If you are converting to a format readable by a dvd player they burner will burn very slowly depending on the source file. Now does you cpu max out when burning?

Each time I try to burn a DVD I always get an error. My DVD burner is capable of burning CD's onto CD-R's but whenever I put a DVD-R in to burn I keep on getting an error.

I have tried several DVR+R and DVD-R but I am still having a problem burning DVD's.

Any suggestions?

Recently, it has come to my attention that my computers CD burner is no longer functioning. The other day I was trying to burn some pictures to give to a friend, and it would go through the process, but then at the end it would say that there had been a problem, and the program needed to close. The result is a ruined CD-R, and no files burned anywhere.

This is beginning to become a problem, as I used to use it to regularly back up word onto CD-RW's and would like to do so again.

This problem persists as well on burning music, or anything for that matter, and I'm out of ideas.
Please, if anyone knows anything about this, tell me, and I'll get you whatever statistics, logs, or anything needed to diagnose this.

I searched the forums for a while and couldn't find a solution for my problem, so I figured it was time to register and ask for myself... Anyway:

I have an older HP Pavillion a1250n with an HP DVD Writer 740b drive.

The drive itself can read CD-ROM and Audio CD's, but cannot seem to read DVDs or write anything at all.

I have tried a few things to far to solve the problem to no avail:

Reinstalled Roxio burning software
Upgraded to Roxio Creator 2011
Updated drive firmware
Ran Microsoft MATS_Run.DVD. (This program told me that this device is not capable of writing, but I have used it many times in the past.)

I appreciate any suggestions you guys have. Thanks!

Also, the second DVD read only drive that I have on the machine reads DVDs just fine.

My Sony CRX210E1 CD Burner acts like it is burning a disk normally but nothing gets burned on the disk. I tried using Nero version 5.0 and I also tried B's Recorder Gold version 3.33 The result was the same with both. I tried uninstalling both and installing them one at a time, still neither worked. I uninstalled them both and cleaned the registry before installing them. I tried removing the CD from device manager and letting windows reinstall it.

I heard from a friend that there is a possible way to burn CDs without paying about $100+ for a CD burner. I've found programs over CNet about it, but all they do is give me popups. Is there a working program that does this? Thanks.

A:Burning CDs without a burner..

Sorry you do need a burner to burn cd disks. Disks are burnt with a lazer beam. Anyone trying to sell you something that they claim will do it is running a scam. You can get a burner for a lot less than $100. I don't know where you are located but if you are in the US check the link below. They have burners from $30 up.

hello, my pacific digital dual format 4x dvd burner has stopped recognizing and/or burning cd's. it still works fine when viewing or burning dvd's however.

the drive is recognized by the computer, but if i put any type of cd in there it appears as if the drive has no disc in it.

do these units have two separate lasers? is it possible that the one dedicated to cd's has gone bad, or is there only one to run both fuctions?

i have run mcafee to check for a virus and i have tried a restore point from when it was working. neither helped.

any ideas out there? i would appreciate it.

I want to burn jpg images (and mp3 files) to see and hear on a dvd player which says it plays those. What is a good burner to buy to do this?

A:Buy what burner for jpg burning to see on dvd player?

Get Nero-
To view pictures on your dvd player you need to burn a VCD (video cd);
then you can flip through pictures on your dvd player like a slideshow.
To listen to music through dvd player: create an audio cd or a mp3 cd - your dvd player will be able to play these.

Nero will be able to create all of these for you.

you need a cd or dvd burner on your pc of course; just about any cd or dvd burner can make audio / VCD cds.

I will soon be buying my first DVD burner.

one of the things i plan on doing with it is making copies of some of my collection to be played on a normal TV DVD player (as well as my portable one). I understand i need software for this and was wondering what some of the more recommended ones are. And if there are any free ones that are worth it (other than free trials). I would prefer one that also burns CDs (im not sure if they all do or not) and works will all formats. My biggest concern though, is that whatever i burn will play on a TV DVD player.

P.S. If anyone has any feedback on my burner that would be helpful (for or against), it too would be appreciated.

I have a LG DVD rom/ CD burner 48-24-48 model GCC 4480B.

(My other specs are in my sig.)

It is supposed to burn CDS at 48X speed, but all I'm getting is around 16X speed.

I'm using Nero Burning Software, and I set it at 48X, but it takes 4-5 minutes to burn a CD.

I tried another burning app, I think it was Roxio platinum 5, and that's when I saw the actual speed was 16x.

How can I get all 48x out of it?

I searched for this topic and there was none this specific.

I am burning video, audio, and picture files into CD-R, but all i am getting is errors stating: "This CD may no longer be usable..." I don't agree with that statement at all considering all other, similar, files were somehow burned onto a CD-R but this one is not working. I don't understand why.

I thought it might be one cd, so i switched to a different one, and same problem. I have tried at least 10+ cd trying to burn files but it's not working and i am getting same error message. I even tried burning different files from different folder (vids, photos, and audio files) and it worked, but not this one.

Can someone please help me? I am just so frustrated right now and i don't know what to do.

Thank you!

A:CD burner not burning files.....

This sounds like a hardware issue. Have you tried going to the CD drive manufacturers website to see if there's a firmware update? If there is one, install it. If not, you might need to replace the drive. I had one doing similar stuff a while back and ended up replacing it. CD/DVD burners are cheap these days. Being this close to Christmas, you can probably get a steal of a deal.

Please make sure the burner is connected or try using another blank disc. I have tried several different dvd's with same result.

What software is being used? What disc format are you burning? What disc type are you using?

Getting that far into the burn process, I'd suspect the media or the drive is faulty.

Not very tech-savvy. Would like to burn copies of mp3 audio files from my computer onto cds (choir rehearsal recordings). Bought a PRODuplicator. Burned some mp3s onto a CD disc from my computer, then tried to use that as my master in the duplicator. My computer can play the disk, but not my car stereo. I suspect a CD formatting issue?

So I just tried to burn a DVD using CloneDVD. I have burned DVD's before using this program on my laptop. I recently built a desktop and am still working out some kinks. So I put in the movie, it said it was writing to computer. I then put in the blank DVD, it said it was burning. I take it out and put it in my laptop, and it says there are no files on the DVD. How come my LiteOn burner is not working?

Easy enough to see if the disk burnt - turn it over (recording side) and see if there is a darker area than the normal dye colour spiralling out from the centre of the disk. That will tell you if the DVD burner actually performed a burn. You said they don't play correctly - do they play at all (and on what equipment)?

Hi guys,
I have an Asus DRW-1608P2 DVD-RW.
When I erase a DVD, it doesn't stop burning at all, even so the DVD is after 17 minutes earased. I can't stop the process with the taskmanager. Even I stopped the task, the DVD-RW light is still burning and I can't open the drive. I have to reboot.
When I burn a DVD it finishes "successfully" after 67 minutes! But when I abort the process after the regulary time of about 17 minutes nero shows me that at that time about 30% finished but on the DVD is already 100% copied.
First I thought it might be a technical problem with the rewriter, so I checked it at my second computer but it worked fine there.

Sometimes I receive an dialog box that reads "Cannot find burner on this computer". Sometimes it goes through the complete burning process, but when I listen to the burned CD, only 3 songs were burned. Sometimes It Burns 6 songs and that is all, it's a different amount of songs all the time. The Burner is in my computer and I have had the Computer for 2 years now, and have successfully burned about 25 cd's until now. I have an E machine with Window's XP. Do I need to have a new Burner installed? or Do I just need to do a system restore of something like that. Thank you.

A:Solved: CD Burner not Burning Correctly

Good Morning cookieman, music files off the net often contain nasty surprises, before you get too involved in other things try this routine.
Visit the smartcop site and obtain their free A/V
Create a folder C:\Smartcop on your drive and download and unpack the file there.
Disable your present monitoring A/V, (usually rightclicking the icon near the clock will allow disableing it) then run the smartcop by doubleclicking it's black icon. (It may be easier to place a shortcut on your desktop)
Ensure you note any problems and particulars detected by the smartcop scan, most will be in temp files so can be deleted.

After completing this scan re-run it again except this time ensure the normal A/V is in monitor mode and set deepest. (if it has any settings ability)
The smartcop scan appears to make viral things visible to the monitor so it produces "hits" as well usually.
Running these programs in "safemode" also usually produces more "hits".

If your machine has been affected it is likely you will be unable to address some viral detections.
Let us know how you go.
I have seen previous problems like yours involving this kind of problem.
Worth a try..
Others will have different ideas.
Cheers, qldit.

Hi guys. I am not sure if the problem with my DVD burner is a software related one or a hardware related one. I am using HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS70 SCSI CdROM device. Of late, most of the times when I am trying to burn a disc, it shows Program Memory Area Update Failure. The errors are random. At times I can burn 2-3 discs before the error pops up. At times it happens during burning the first disc. The type of files I am burning also has no effect as the error occurred as I attempted to write various types of disc. I sed ImgBurn and Nero but the problem persisted. What is the problem and what do I need to do to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

I dont know what the deal is but if I pop in a blank DVD or CD that is one of the darker colored ones the PC acts like there is nothing there. My burning software spits the disc back out and request a blank DVD.

As soon as I put a light colored or silver disk in it works fine.


Is there anything I can do about it? I just bought a 10 pk of blank DVDs and they are all dark........

The drive is an NEC DVD+RW ND-1100A and supports several different flavors of DVD media.

DVD recorders can be fussy as to media type. As you have now found.

Usually nothing can be done, it's all to do with the laser wavelength and power, vs the reflectivity of the DVD media dye.

When I burn a 3.5GB RAR File using Win7's built-in burner, it's always getting "stuck" at random parts of the process. Sometimes, it gets stuck at the middle of the process, sometimes towards the end, and etc. When it gets stuck, you will see that the rate (KB/s) will not vary and it is constant. I use a LG Hitachi GBW-T10N Bluray Combo Drive with my laptop and it has the latest firmware UN09. Why is this so?

By the way, this doesn't happen when I burn using ImgBurn. Please help. Thanks.

A:Burning with Windows 7 x64 Built-in Burner Issues

If you are using the "mastered" mode with Win 7 burning that could be the problem as according to the Help File it can take up to double the disc space for the burning and if you have a 3.5GB file and burn it to a DVD it would exceed the capacity of the DVD.

I currently use WinDVD Creater 4 to make my DVDs. I usually have around 1-2 hours of video on the dvd's I create. In WinDVD creator it seems that it has to "Make the movie" by playing it in the little screen, while it really slowly progresses. It takes about 2 hours to make the movie in that damned program. Is there any programs that can make the movie without having to wait so freaking long?

This question has nothing to do with my dvd burner speed, just the program and how long it takes to create the dvd in the program.

I think you can blame the shoddy Nvidia drivers for that.

I know it sounds painful, but try running with the ordinary VESA driver and see if it still happens or try manually installing the newest drivers from Nvidia's site.

I am trying to upgrade the RAM in a friend's very old computer. It's an Acer Aspire, running at 120 mhz and originally had 16 meg of RAM, capable of going up to 64 meg. It has four slots and I purchased two 32 meg strips, 72 pin, EDO RAM. The machine starts up, counts up the correct amount of RAM, the screen clears, the cursor goes up to the top left corner of the monitor, blinks about five times and then disappears. The hard drive light stays on continuously during this procedure, stays on for another 60 seconds or less, goes out and then nothing. Machine continues to run but nothing else happens. Any clues or suggestions? Thanks.

A:New RAM, screen blanks out

Bad or incompatible memory!! Did you get the same kind that was in there previously as far as the density of the chips on the SIMM's? Some PC's refuse to do anything with double density or the memory has to be configured in the sockets a certain way. Are these parity type SIMM's? Is the old memory still in the PC when you are booting with the new? Take out the old memory and try to boot with only the new memory in.

So was thinking that i could scan or if needed maybe copy/paste the medical form to pdf or abiword or lotus or notepad or work etc than add my answers; type/ fill in the blanks instead of using a pen put so far nothing either nothing comes out the way the original is or if it does come out right i can t type in the blanks so what am i missing or what software do i need to fix this ! ? Or must i ink in the blanks ?

Using vista HP and a kodak ESP 3520 multiprinter . . .

The computer screen blanks out about 20 minutes into the DVD and my wife, who is recuperating from surgery, has to get up to hit the <Enter> key to clear it. Is there a setting that I can adjustor change to correct this problem?

I am sorry: I forgot to mention that the OS is XP.

Thank you,

A:Screen blanks out while watching DVD

My first guess would be that you have a screen saver or monitor power save mode set to kick in after 20 minutes of no activity on the keyboard or mouse.

Right click in an open spot on the desktop and select "Properties" from the dropdown menu and then select "Screen Saver" tab in the Display Properties screen.

(I'm using Microsoft XP SP3)

Last night my computer was doing a disk check and it changed a lot of "false IDs". It went up to about 75000. When I restarted my computer the start time took considerably longer than usual. My toolbar/taskbar/start button is gone. My sound is gone. I can't move icons on my computer. I can't open Internet Explorer, luckily I have firefox installed... And most importantly my services.msc extended is blank. On the standard side I can't change anything without getting error 1068. Please Help....

I don't know if this is any help but my sound has been disabled once before but I fixed it easily by going into service.msc and turning my plug and play back on. I can't do this now though because it's blank. So I'm thinking the most important thing is to get my services.msc started again.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

When I insert a blank CD-R (sometimes) or a blank CD-RW (always), the computer thinks drawer is empty. As a result, I can not burn the CD.

What's wrong?

I am using Windows Vista and am having a problem with my monitor going completely blank for from two to five seconds at exactly ten minute intervals. Usually the screen returns and the aplication continues but, at times the dropout period runs several seconds long and the application shuts down and I am returned to the Desktop. Due to the regularity of ten minutes, I thought maybe a screen saver was trying to activate but I am not using a screen saver. This is annoying! Does anyone have any ideas?? It doesn't seem to matter what program I am running.

I have an IBM ThinkPad 770E. When I am working on it, out of the blue, the
screen blanks out. If you look at it very closely, you can see a very faint
screen. The computer still works though. What can I do?

A:Ibm thinkpads screen blanks out

Hook up a monitor and see if it blanks out too. If not, the problem is in the screen itself, not in Windows or in a setting or anything.

Not much we can help you with if the screen is going bad... other than to help you pin down that it really is the screen.

This has been happening for awhile but haven't pursued because I haven't been playing games and happens only when I play games. The monitor goes blank or call it a flash for a second (probably less) and can be really frustrating when playing a game. Has anyone come across this problem?


A:Monitor blanks out when gaming

First thing I would check would be my refresh rate. It sounds like you might have it set too high for the resolution you are playing at.

Hi, welcome to the forum,
You forgot to mention what you are working with, I assume is Excel but I may be worng.
If it is Excel then I suggest you also say which version.
I think I understand what you want but a sample wothout sensitive data would help.
Your explanation may be clear to you but that's the whole issue, putting your own thoughts in writing in such a way that the reader understands it is not as simple as it looks.

These two choices you are talking about: is the second choice dependant of the first one?
