I have a Philips 8701 dvd±rw. Ive had it for awhile, but this is the first time I have ever tried to burn a dvd. I just want to back up my photos but when I stick in a blank dvd-r disc it doesnt recognize it. It will see a Blank cd but not a blank DVD. I read all the stuff about flashing, but that might as well be another language. Cant find anything on Dells website or Philips website.
I had to redo my operating system awhile back, and maybe I didnt reinstall everything I need. It does play DVDs you rent.
I would prefer not to go buy another brand/type of blank dvds, if its the dvd drive and not the blank dvd.
I tried search this forum, but it did seem to have the anser I need.
