Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop ?

CD writing speed

\015 I keep getting an "error message" on burning cds. The error message is saying "An error has occured while writing to the media. Enter in a new recordable CD and choose a lower writing speed" I am already writing at only 4x. Why is it not writing on the CD? The cd writing speed is up to 52x and up to 700 mb storage. I am only trying to store 300-400mb. HELP.\015

Answers :

It's most likely NOT the CD..check the settings in your burner applications, where those sort of things are decided.

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!
