CD/DVD Drive can read but not write

Hi friends

Im using compaq presario laptop with windows 7 home premium. Last 2 days im encountering these problems. I tried to write video files into dvd using nero.The first dvd is proper and burned in 20 to mins approx. Then i tried second one and it takes nearly one and half hour to finish and it says dvd burned. When i checked up its an empty dvd like a fresh one.

help will be appreciated.
thanks

Hi, Welcome to forums.

Check out for any available updates for DVD drivers. Install them. If that resolves the issue, fine. Else, you can get a new drive. It might be corrupted.

Welcome to SF kumarack. I would try another disc as it seems the first burned without an issue so maybe it's a media problem?

I only hope you didn't do a simulated burn.

Anyway more details will be appreciated. For the present, what was the first optical nedia that was burnt successfully and what was the second media you used? In both cases, the brand name and whether it was a record once/ rewritable.

Thanks for your reply friends.

For Mr archer I tried to update my driver but its already updated

For linnemeyerhere , tried with different brand dvd's [SONY,MOSER BAER] still not burning, and the media is perfectly alright.

For jumanji first one is SONY DVD-R and the second is MOSER BAER DVD-R, both of em is fresh one.

Sorry to hear that as it could well mean that the burner function is toast ! Good news is you can get a cheap usb DVD burner and test it out or pay more and replace the internal dvd drive.

How could that happen , Is there any other way to rectify that.

Exactly what are you trying to burn and doesn't work.
What is your source.

That is the best choice you made. Good for you. Are you able to write?
