Not all DVD Burners will burn a CD, granted 99% of them do, but there are a small few that don't... what's the model # of your drive?

I have never seen a DVD burner that will not burn cd's.

What software are you trying to use and what brand of blank cd's are you using?

I have 4 different brands of DVD burners, (including a Lite-On), they all burn CDs. Maybe try another brand of CDs?

There is no reason it shouldn't burn a cd. Throw a blank one in, open Nero, pull down the cd tab in the top left and click on Audio CD. Drag a bunch of mp3's into the left window and click on burn.

Does it work? Do you get any kind of message?

Don't forget, Nero has two menu selections, one for burning dvd's and one for cd's. You have to select the right one.

It is set for CD not DVD. but remember it wont even read a cd-rom not sure if I said they yet but it wont read Any type of CD only DVDs but the specs says it can read CDs/DVDs and CDRWs and all that stuff. Any ideas? I will switch brands again and see if that helps

You may be in the same boat I was a while back. I used to only use generic cd's and dvd's to burn with. After a while my burner stopped burning cd's. It still did dvd's but not cd's. I did some research on the error codes I was getting and it's the cheap media that killed the burner. You get what you pay for - buy good media. I only use Ritek. I had to buy a new burner. No problems with it now.

Ritek is the brand for blank dvd's and cd's. It's one of the top brands out there along with Taiyo Yuden. Look for the G05 type. Verbatim, Maxell, and all the electronics store house brands are all garbage. Everytime you use those kinds you are doing harm to your burner. When you use those types in your cd player, car stereo, Playstation etc. you are hurting those devices too. Mainly killing the lasers off prematurely. Like I said, when my burner died last year I did a ton of research and the crappy blanks do a lot of harm to whatever you use them in. Plus they won't last as long in the long run.
