TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-R2412
dvd media :KODAK DVD-R Version 1.0 media
sorry if thats not as much info as you would like.after looking through the spec of the drive,it states that for dvd its read only.the disc just clunks along in the tray and dont even show up on pc.
what i dont understand is,fair enough if i was ging to burn as in writing to dvd in the conventional manner,as its just a dvd rom,but was guessing and hoping to use the extra size of the disc to just write as data like a cd.
to be honest i think im reaching for what i expect ,but would have hoped to have been at least given an error stating the disc is unsuitable.
i know it is most probably the obvious fact that the drive just wont take, accept the dvd-r media,and be better of switching to a dvd rw.
