My issue is that My DVD/CD burn drive is not burning CD's, it can still burn DVD and read DVD as well as CD. I updated the firmware and I also uninstalled the drive and reinstalled. The issue still persists, Everything works but the CD burning. Any help will be appreciated.

This may be caused by the brand of CD you are using. Some burners can be very picky about the brand of CD. Try using a different brand.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

What software are you using?

Some software require that you change from DVD burner to CD burner in the settings.

looks like an LG in a dell computer?

need to check your filter drivers to make sure that it hardware and not software that's screwing up

what brand of cd's are you using?

Taiyo Yuden's are the best, followed by verbatim and sony in my experience?

If you've got a dual burner, burns DVD and CD, it's possible the laser has gone bad for the CD while the DVD laser is still okay.

all the recent drives I have torn apart only had one laser that did everything

try this method to remove the crud from having too many burning programs installed


guided help is the safest

another alternative is download imgburn, use it's filter tool to remove the bad drivers and then reboot and try to burn a data cd

it's quite possible the drive is bad tho

I prefer if people will try in another computer to crosscheck

On my Toshiba (which has a similar CD/DVD drive) there's a tab in the CD drive's properties to enable CD recording. Go to My Computer, right click on the CD drive and select Properties. See if there's a "Recording" tab and click on it to see if this is the case. It took me 4 hours to figure this out in an airport a while back! :thumbsup:
