Device Not Ready (Medium Not Present - Tray Closed)

Recommended Posts

Right, so I'm kinda new at this whole thing about downloading movies from the net, but I followed the steps in a good tutorial I found, and everything went fine, I waited a few hours for the torrent thing to finish downloading, and then I used DVD Flick to encode it, and ImgBurn started up automatically, and then everything stopped. I have a Sony dvd+r in the tray, it's new, empty, yet this doesn't seem to be working. I heard that most computers are capable of burning dvds, however is there a way to make sure?

 

Any advice is appreciated...

Your drive can't burn DVDs, it can only read them.

 

It can write CDs though.

Because it says it right there in the log :)

 

If you had a DVD writer it would say something like...

 

I 14:07:08 Found 1 DVD±RW!

 

The log entry tells us the basic capabilities of the installed drive.

 

Yours shows up as DVD-ROM/CD-RW meaning it can read DVD-ROM discs and write CDs.

 

Other options could include BD-ROM/DVD±RW meaning it can read BD discs and write DVDs (and CDs because they always do).

erm yeah, look for what I just told you in the ImgBurn log.

 

Or find the make/model of the optical drive in the machine and Google for its specs.

How about puting ImgBurn in Read mode, right click on drive and choose Capabilities...
