Can't burn to any discs?! (Optiarc DVD RW AD-7170A)

About 3 weeks ago I received my Optiarc DRD RW AD-7170A for my

Dimension 2350 and the drive reads CDs & DVDs well, but it has a big problem

it doesn’t write to CDs & DVDs, the media I have used for burning is Maxell.

I have tried Maxell CD-R, Maxell DVD-R and Maxell DVD-RW and Im thinking

about running to the store and getting me a pack of Verbatim DVD-Rs

because I have no idea if its the drive or the media that I’m using (Maxell).

And the software used is…?

What software are you talking about?

If you’re talking about burning software I’m using Deepburner but the problem has nothing to do with the program.

I can Burn DVD’s just fine with WinDVD creator, but I can’t burn CD’s with Maxell and Windows Media Player. Real Player doesn’t even recognize the burner.

I have 4 of these burners & they are excellent burners, try using quality media & a better known program, seriously before you say that it has nothing to do with something.
