Having problems with your Everex StepNote VA4103M Notebook ?

CD Writer doesn't write.

\015 It will play songs from CD's just fine. However, when I try to burn a CD, it won't write. My Windows Media Player will tell me that the burn is complete, but the CD is blank. I've tried cleaning the writer, checking for viruses, and making more space on my computer. I don't want to buy an external drive, but I don't know what else to do! Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Your burner has two laser inside it. One read and one write. Sounds like the write laser is toast. This is acutaly a fairly common failure among cd and dvd drives.
