    Default Copying data to disk

    I have a problem regarding some DVD's i brought recently, and the problem is that i can not copy photos or any data on them. It doesn't matter whether they are -R or +R, as my comp takes both!

    When last time i copied some photos from my comp to disk, i didnt have any problems, i brought the CD's from the kodak shop and i used them to copy my photos on them as well as other data!

    when i insert the dvd, i copy whatever i want to the disk and then comes a message saying something like copied! But when i try to open the disk drive there is nothing there.

    What may the problem be?

    I've already done that, doesn't work!

    But generally DVD's can copy near enough anything on them, cant they? It doesnt matter on what kind of data you copy!

    which software you are using to burn data, try to use nero once and then see if it can help you in any case.

    Don't use copy-paste function...

    1. Insert blank DVD..
    2. Right click on the file/folder which u wanna burn on the disc...
    3. Choose send to and then choose your DVD drive. Pictured below..
    4. Open My computer and click on your DVD drive there...
    5. Simply choose write these files to cd in the left menu which is under the heading of CD writing tasks. If your disk is not full, you can add more files to it at a later date...





    P.S.- Alternately, when you insert a blank DVD into your DVD burner a Windows dialog box will appear. Here you can choose the Open CD folder using Windows Explorer. It will open a cd writing dialog box where you can drag and drop files into it to burn to DVD...

    I think Nero is systematical not much complication is present when once anyone know how to burn CD/DVD. May be some times copy/paste is not working properly.

    It all depends on the comfort level of a person with an application... One of my friend always use Win XP burning tool... Its like preferring Windows Media Player over Winamp to hear music... Both do the job!

    foobar2000 and mediamonkey ... you will forget wmp, winamp, real player etc after using these ...

    foobar2000 is free ... foobar2000

    mediamonkey is my favourite - you can download the trial here -> MediaMonkey Free Media Jukebox, Music Manager, CD Ripper & Converter - probably you would be able to manage a gold version for yourself ..

    Did you install Daemon tools then may be you can make mistake.
    Now in can check your drive by Nero info tool option
    Check for cd-rw

    Now for DVD-writter

    Attachment 2550

    Specially check the supported read features.

    How is Daemon tools different from Nero. I use nero 7.5 and Nero Image drive as virtual drive.

    There are some file formats(I don't recall their name now) which aren't recognised by Nero Image drive... So its best that for that purpose use Daemon tools... Or install it when you encounter those formats...

    Ok, got another problem, and its to do with CD! I didn't open another thread as there was no point, as its quite similar!

    I burned a music CD today, and it was all done and got completed, when I went to play it, it didnt work. I put it in the comp to see if it worked there, and when i saw the CD was empty. So i tried burning the same songs again, and it said disk is full!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wasted two CD's on this!

    If some error occurs while writing, it will show the disc as empty but you cannot write anything on it later.That CD cannot be used. There is an option called verify files while you burn a disc. Select the option. After burning, check in the computer itself.

    Thanks dilip, will give an update after i try my third attempt to burn the CD!
    Is the verify option available on Windows Media player, because that's what i use to burn my CD's?

    Welcome

    Always use Nero. It is the best. My hard disk has some errors. Even that affects burning. My Nero version is 7.5. It is light compared to later versions. Never use damaged/burning error CD again.

    Yeh I have realized that Nero is the best software to use, and that too because of Indiabroadband.net
