Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My laptop is not recongizing my lg 20x external super multi dvd rewriter and i cant burn cd


Answers :

To start turn off the laptop, unplug power adapter and remove the battery. wait ten minutes and restart laptop.
This quick operation will get rid of electrostatic charges that can cause troubles on USB ports.

Also thest DVD RW on a different USB port, if you are using USB extensions or HUB, plug them off and connect straight to the laptop.

If that did not work, then the first thing to do is testing the external DVD RW on a different computer. If it does not work then the drive is faulty, in that case better buying a replacement one than repairing.

If the drive works on a different computer, then the problem is on your laptop USB.

Go to device manager on control panel and see if USB has a yellow marker on top. If it does try first a system restore, to a recent date when the external drive was working.. If still no luck, and DVD RW is working elsewhere, then you may need to reinstall Windows, either with recovery disk or with Windows setup CD.

I have a 20X Memorex multi function disk drive and have from time to time tried to use it for backing up/storing important data. My question is if I "verify" the burn there will be errors. I have also bought the Memorex DVD+R DL and the box it comes in identifies what these disk are best used for. These recommendations do incude backing up data. My question is are disk back-ups inferior to external hard drive back-ups? Thank you for this opertunity.


As for your question of disk vs hard drives, DVD's and CD's that are burnt from a computer are more easily damaged then hard drive data. The best idea if you are looking for a good backup solution is an external hard drive in my opinion. There are ma ... PC Desktops

Burning I have an Acer Aspire 1640Z. CD burning is fine but when a blank DVD disk is put into the drive it isnt recognised as blank, (says 0 bytes for free and used space). I cant seem to work out why. The side of the drive says 'DVD+Rewritable' so unless i am missing something i assume it can burn to DVDs?


It maybe because the drive is a +R burner and you are putting a -R disc in. That is the usual case. The media type can be found on the inner circle of the disc.\015\012\015\012Hope that helps. ... Acer Aspire 1640Z Notebook
