Emc 7.5 - Click "burn" Nothing Happens


dkmathias

Question

I have EMC 7.5 installed.

 

My drives are recognized.

 

However, when I click on the "burn" button, nothing happens, it just sits there.

 

I've "repaired" emc installation but to no avail.

 

Am i going to have to uninstall and reinstall to get it to work?

 

Help?

 

thanks.

David

And also, what is the id string of your drives? (Right-click "my computer" > properties > hardware > CDROM >(click on the burner logo, then copy exactly the id string - letter for letter and space for space).

 

And what kind of media are you trying to use?

 

Two of the most common problems burning DVDs are using the wrong media (plus vs dash), and not having a DVD burner (usually a combo drive - CD-RW/DVD-ROM - but I've also seen posts by people with a drive that was a DVD-ROM and nothing else).

While some of the users on the forum might be dumb enough to not have a burner actually installed, I'm not one of them. Sorry if I didn't provide enough information.

 

I have a DVD-R/RW Memorex Burner and a standard CDRom drive. Until my post, the drive was functioning and I was burning my merry way along. Then something happened. I've been burning on CD-r's and DVD+R and +RW's up until this point.

 

As for how I was recording, I was using creator classic, going to create a data CD, dragging my files to the window for burning and clicking on the icon "burn".

 

In any event, I actually solved my own problem.

 

I started back at the most simple answer - the physical layer. I could read CD's in the drives so I knew they were connected and powered up. I then checked them in the device manager (which I did the other day) but this time something clicked that my drive wasn't listed the "right" way. they were listed as a "CD-ROM" and a "LITE-onLTN486 48x MAx_____". It didn't actually name it as a DVD drive.

 

So I uninstalled each of the drives and then let Windows do the hardware change scan. It found both drives and reinstalled their drivers.

 

So now my drives are listed as

Lite-on LTN486

Memorex DVD+/-RW True8xn

 

I'm also now able to click on the "burn" icon and burn CDs and DVD's again. I'm not sure what was installed that would have changed those drivers - so I need to research that issue.

 

Plain and simple answer for people that are having similar problems, start at the most simple level first, check the drive listings in the device manager and see if they make sense to you.

 

Thanks for making me think and solve my own problem.

You got it! I have gone into Device Manager and removed my drives, more than once. What causes some problems in the first place, sometimes is never found. It can almost be anything, and I am glad your problem was that easy to fix, and I am glad that you posted here, because there are a number of people who would not think of it, on their own.

 

Thanks for posting your solution.

Well, I think you need to offer much more information than my car won't start. Like letting us know what you are trying to burn, and what steps you took before clicking on the burn button.
