Hi there this is my first post here to please be patient. I recently reinstalled my operating system (XP) to clear out the rubbish on it. Now before I did this I copied my essential documents onto a 1 DVD-R and 1 CD-R, now stupidly I forgot to click on the ‘make compatible’ button to make them accessible to all drives before I formatted my drive.
Also now I have reinstalled the DVD drive is no longer giving me any options to format new dvd-r’s, make new one compatible or anything else. It does however play audio cd’s and DVD movies. So basically when I put either the dvd I saved my essential documents onto or a new blank dvd that I want to format and then use it will not let me do this.
Can you give me any help in how I can access the data on the DVD I forgot to make compatible and how I can get it back to a state of being able to burn dvd’s again? (I have already updated the driver to the latest version I can find)
The model of the drive is - LG GSA 4120B Super multi DVD Drive (I have it attached to my laptop by an external case)
Thanks in advance :o
