Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 4202WLMi Notebook ?

Can't tell what my DVD drive is capable of

\015 Do I really need an external DVD burner for my Acer 4202 laptop? I've burned CDs and played DVDs on it before, but when I try to burn a DVD+R disc it says the disc is either full or flawed. Tried multiple new discs. "My Computer" shows this as the drive: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4082N -- but my owner's-manual specs refer to "Storage subsystem" optical drive options of 8X DVD-Super Multi double-layer and 8X DVD-Dual double-layer. What's the "8X" for if not a burn speed? And the drive door has an emblem that says "DVD multi recorder"Could this be a driver problem, or is my drive less than advertised?KurtM\015

Answers :

The DVD drive is an 8X burner, not a ROM (read-only).
\015\012The laser lens may need cleaning.
\015\012Radio Shack has a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner ($13). It is an audio CD with a row of brushes. No chemicals involved. Read and follow directions.
\015\012It won't mess anything if not done correctly.
\015\012Best DVD media is Verbatim. Best price is found at OfficeMAX.

Hello, I have a Toshiba Satellite P105. The DVD drive on it, says it is a DVD-RAM. In properties it read as a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4082N. I bought this being told this drive supports Dual-Layer burning. Now is this true, or no? I really have never even heard of DVD-RAM before and after reading about, I understand it cant write DVD+R OR DVD-R . Can someone please tell me, if this drive can burn those and can it burn DVD-DL too? Thanks so much!
