if u just bought a new pc, it should come with a dvd burner... 99.9% or them do. Also, when you say "i baught another burner and it still wont work", does this mean you installed the old dvd burner to the compputer ? If so, did you install the proper drivers? Also, what burning program are you using? Also, can you elaborate on " it stopped burning" Did it stop 1/2 way through a disc? Please specify..
