Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop ?
Not sure how to use the cd burner?
\015 This is a slim line computer with a cd burner already in it. I can get the cd to copy onto the system but when I try to write it to a cd it doesn't pick it up. I have never used a burner like this and am not quite sure how it works. What am I doing wrong? help???\015
Hi Kylie1,\015\012\015\012If I understand you correctly you can read from your CD drive but you can?t write (burn) to it. Just to make sure you should check the face of your CD drive and look for the letters *RW* or *Rewritable*. If you don?t see them then there is a good chance your drive is just a read-only drive. \015\012\015\012When Dell sells a PC with a CD write capable drive they usually installed a program that actually does the writing. With the OptiPlex260s it was typically a program named Roxio Easy CD. If this is the original software install it should still be there, if not then you will have to purchase or download and install one of the many freeware programs.

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. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).
