Ok, so I’m new to this forum but am pretty familar with computers, seeing how I’ve used them for almost ten years now. So my question is, is there anyway to burn a dvd without acquiring a dvd-r/rw. My girlfriends laptop, which is the only computer I have access to at the moment, only has a regular cd-rw drive that is also a dvd player. It is a TSSTcorp CD-RW/DVD player. I’m pretty su re that means it cannot burn dvds but is there any way (program) to get it to burn dvds? Any help would be greatly appreciated
Welcome to the forum.
To write a DVD is necessary a special laser pickup. Your combo drive (i.e. a cd writer/dvd reader) don’t have this laser able to write DVD, so this is impossible.
It’s not a software issue, but an hardware issue.
Ahhh, never knew that one, one more question. Since I’m not familiar with CD-R/RW/DVD-R/RW hardware, can anyone reccomend a site to read up on it?
Here there is an huge forum to read on optical devices
you could make a vcd, playable in your set top dvd player, with the hardware available.
vcd’s are burned on cd-r media…but less disc space, great of 20 minute clips…
but to burn a dvd…you need a dvd burner.
