Dell :: Why Does My Inspiron Not Burn CDs?

Feb 27, 2009

I've had this computer for almost 2 years and only a handful of times have I tried to burn a CD. It will go through all the steps of burning, makes all the usual noises and such...

but what comes out is still a blank CD. What is that about? I know I need to call, but was wondering if anyone else had an idea before I had a chance to sit down and call them.

Dell :: Help Inspiron 1520 Can't Burn DVD's

Mar 23, 2009

My Dell Insipiron 1520 (lappy) with a DVD-RW combo has started to make a weird 'high pitched 'chuggy' sound whenever I turn on the laptop or when I eject or put in a disc.

Also when it starts to read something and when you tell it to write. The last time I checked, I can still read DVD game discs but trying burn a DVD just doesn't work. It doesn't think that anything's in there.

Dell :: Studio 1557... Hot, HOT, Don`t Burn Yourself!

Jan 29, 2010

I`ve just recived my 1557 and after 4 days of using it i can tell you this...

I HATE IT! I can`t really use it without overheating! I`m an Industrial Design student, and i use a lot PS, Solidworks, 3dMax, and various rendering engines. While using them, just after 5 o 6 minutes of rendering, the laptop overheats and turns off.

Just when it starts, core temperature rounds 73/75 degrees celcius... it reaches about 93 while rendering... and i can`t even tell when i`m gaming (i used gta san andreas for 10 minutes before ati 4570 reached 105 degrees and core about 90, then it shutted off). I`m so annoyed.... this really bothers me, in a few weeks i`ve to get back to work and university, and i have a usless "POWERFUL" machine!

I need recommendations for a new laptop, because i`m going to send thisone back next week. I don`t care if it is apple, asus, or hp, i need something wich i can really use, and i need it to be just as powerful as this (or a little less, i don`t care, as long as it really works and do de JOB).

My budget is arround 1500 US dollars.

My 1557 Specs: Core i7 720QM, 4gb DDR3 1066, 320gb 7200rpm, ATi 4570.

Acer :: Can Burn DVD-Rs But Not Read Them

Sep 30, 2007

I've got an Aspire 1652WLMi laptop running Vista Home Premium but seem to have an issue with the DVD drive.

It will read and write CDs fine, it will read normal DVDs fine, it will BURN DVDRs fine. However it wont read DVDRs. Even ones its written (verified working in other PCs) come up as "blank disk" when you insert them into the laptop.

Im not sure if this is an OS problem or a drive problem.

Dell Vostro 1000 :: DVD / CD Player Doesn't Seem To Be Able To Burn Disk

Mar 9, 2013

On my Dell Vostro 1000 which is equiped with a TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L632H ATA DVD/CD writer, it appears I can't write to disk anymore. I can still read DVDs and CDs without errors. Just when I attempt to burn disks, the drive fails with unspecified errors. One thing I noticied is that when I recently used Roxio to burn an ISO image to a CD, the operation completed. But when I reinserted the disk nothing was found on it. It appeared to be blank when reading it from the Vostro laptop. So, I inserted the disk into another DVD/CD drive on another computer. The CD appeared blank but when I tried to write to it from the other computer the pre-write check reported that only 13MB of space was available. So something was on the disk but it ws not visible to either computer. Weird. I tried cleaning the optics but the write operation still failed. Should I consider the drive dead?

HP Pavilion G6 Audio :: Computer Won't Burn CDs

Aug 20, 2014

I'm trying to burn a CD from my Pavilion G6 notebook and when I try in iTunes I get the error message "Disk burner or software not found". I then tried in Windows Media Player, because sometimes iTunes updates do more bad than good and I recently updated iTunes. In Windows Media Player I get this message..."Connect a burner and restart the player". I've never had a problem burning music from my comp to a CD before and often do to use in my car. Why my computer suddenly stopped allowing me to make CDs.

Sony :: VGN-FS570 Won't Read Or Burn Disks

Feb 19, 2009

I've tried updating the drivers and updating the registry but the CD-ROM drive is still acting weird. The software from the sony support site actually made the issue worse because now the computer doesn't even recognize the drive (did the registry update). I am willing to go into the registry and try to undo the changes however I need to know where to look (so I'm not searching blindly). Further, I'm not really a fan of going into the registry and making modifications there.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16 Wont Burn Anything Properly

May 18, 2009

I've had this HDX since January, and have had nothing but problems whenever i tried to burn a dvd or cd.

The version of Nero i had isnt compatible with Vista, and im not getting the new one, so it took me forever to find some free soft. I've tried Astroburner, CDburnerXP, and Infrarecorder.

Astroburner: Constantly locks up, sometimes cant even see my drive, and if i CAN get it to burn something, it never completes it. it just sits there.

CDburnerXP: Is not compatible with my drive at all, it doesnt see it.

Infrarecorder: has given me the best results, i've burnt a few data CD's, that went smoothly. But today, i wanted to burn a DVD data disc with a whole bunch of AVI's, it spun up the disc, and then just sat there at 0%, disc spinning for 1 hour. Drive was locked, program locked, couldnt end task, NOTHING.

I had to hold the power button down to get it to stop.

I have the BC-5500S, BD-rom / DVD RW

Acer :: 6920-6508 Vista 64 Can't Burn DVDs

Oct 28, 2008

I purchased a 6920-6508 for my mother so she has a PC to get email, surf the web, do some web video calls with the grand kids and keep pictures on, etc. So this laptop came with 4gb of ram, a DVD RW+- and Vista 64 on it but I can't burn DVDs. It can burn CDs with no problems but I get no joy when trying to burn a DVD (I am using TDK DVD+R 1-16x 4.7GB media). It can read DVD just fine, and I took one of the DVD+R disks that I was trying to write on, over to my 4 year old PC with a DVD burner in it and I was able to burn a disk just fine and the 6920 could read the disk I just burned with no problems.

Now if laptop came with a set of recovery DVDs I wouldn't be so frustrated, I just can't see my mother burning DVDs anytime soon, but I would like to burn a set of recovery disks so if she ends up trashing the system I can help her through a recovery process.

I have it all set up for her, and I want to mail it off to her, but I dread sending it to her with out the recovery disks. I am wondering if there is just some kind of driver problem for the DVD burner not being quite 64bit ready and maybe it that can be upgraded to a working driver, or maybe there is some kind of work around, but I just don't know.

Does your DVD burner work in your 6920-6508? According to the DVD player is a Slimtype DVD A DS8A1P ATA Device and the driver version is 6.0.6001.18000.

HP/Compaq :: DV7-1023 Takes A Long Time To Burn A DVD

Mar 30, 2009

I have a DV7-1023 that is less than a month old. I finally got around to burning some dvd movies from files I copied to the local hard drive. The total process time to burn a movie from start to finish takes 23 minutes at 8x speed.

On my old laptop the process time from start to finish took about 15 minutes at 6x speed.

The machine has the vista 64bit version that came with laptop. I am using Nero version 7.

Is there anything I can do to speed up my burn time?

There are no other apps running, and I tried burning right after rebooting.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X220 - Unexpected Error Occurred When Attempting To Burn Disks

Nov 5, 2009

Just received 2 new X220 thinkpads - I'm attempting to burn factory recovery disks on a lenovo USB multifunction cd/dvd drive.
I receive the 'error unexpected error occurred (rc=9)' when attempting to burn the disks - I came across another forum suggesting that the first disk is a CD and the rest should be DVD - This worked to burn the recovery media - however when I inserted a DVD to continue the rest of the recovery media I receive the aforementioned error.
I have gotten 1 of them to complete a full set of disks - 4 in total.  The other one, no such luck.

Dell :: How To Switch Your Inspiron 9300 WUXGA LCD Into An Inspiron 9400P

Aug 1, 2007

Guide to Switching your Inspiron 9300/M170 WUXGA into the Inspiron 9400/M1710:

You can't simply replace the display screens. The instructions below must be followed for your screen to work properly.

Required Materials:
- Small Phillips (I used #0 Phillips)
- Either 2 monitors (9400 and 9300) or part #YPNL-N017B (Google the # to buy it).

Step 1: Remove the display assembly. Dell has an excellent guide for this on their website.
[url] Click on Display)

Step 2: Remove the LCD Bezel (the gray trim around the screen). This requires removing the screws under the circular pads. I used a small flathead to pry open the bezel.

Step 3: Remove the 8 screws around the sides of the LCD. This will make it so your screen can be taken out. Do not worry about any screws on the top, they are for other things.

Step 4: At the bottom of the screen, there is a green circuit board. On the left side, you will see a screw holding the wire down. Remove this.

Step 5: Remove the LCD screen from the case.

Step 6: Look at the bottom circuit board again. This is the board we need to swap! Disconnect the 2 connections on the board. There should be on on the bottom and one on the side that is white.

Step 7: There will be 3 silver screws holding the circuit to the screen. Remove these screws. Note: This requires a very small phillips. I used a #0 Phillips to do the trick.

Step 8: Repeat steps 1-7 for your other monitor OR if you don't have another will need to buy an inverter chip. The mfg # is YPNL-N017B. If you google that number, you should find a bunch of sites willing to sell it.

Step 9: Simply swap the bottom circuit boards between monitors or insert the new one that you bought.

Step 10: Follow steps 1-7 in reverse to reconnect everything back up! Before screwing everything back up. I suggest you plug it in first to test it out.

Congratulations. Your WUXGA LCD will now work properly on the Inspiron 9400. For anyone wondering, you MUST replace the bottom circuit board or the brightness controls will not work. You brightness will be stuck at the lowest setting and nearly impossible to see.

Dell :: Inspiron 15 (or 1535) & Inspiron 6400 (or E1505)

Feb 20, 2009

I am looking into replacing my old Dell Inspiron 6400, as it has been excellent -I think I should buy another Dell!

I am looking at the new Inspiron 15, which has a 15.6" display.

Can anyone tell me whether the actual laptop itself is bigger or smaller than my current 6400? I am interested in knowing width.

I see a lot of dead space on my 6400, and hopefully Dell realized this, and instead of making another 15.4" with dead space, they made use of this and gave a better display!

and it says:

The Inspiron 15 is fairly quiet, though at times the fans did get a bit noisy. Basically you wont hear this notebook at all in an environment with ambient noise, but if youre in a library like quiet environment you might bother those nearby with some fan noise."
