Having problems with your Compaq 6710b Notebook ?

DVD writer not working

\015 Hi,My dvd writer is currently behaving like a ROM.it reads data but cant write.On nero it shows a ROM,but i did write sometime ago.Any idea!!!\015

Answers :

Let's make sure that Nero is not causing the problem. Try this:
-Insert a blank CD or DVD
-Find a file that you want to burn to disc
-Right-Click on said file and select Send To --> DVD-RW Drive (D:) (or whatever your recordable drive is labeled)
-Open My Computer, double click on your recordable drive
- You should see your file ready to be burned to disc
- In the left-hand panel, you should see a link that says "Burn these files to disc" or something similar - click this link and see what happens

If this process works and properly burns a disc, your issue is not with your drive but with Nero. If this process does NOT work, then you may need to reinstall drivers for your DVD writer or replace the drive if it is faulty.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background.
