Hi, I could do with some help.
My laptop has Windows XP and I bought a used LG GSA E60L Super Multi dvd writer and I can't get it to work. I've bought Nero 7 Premium software to burn with as the Nero 7 Essentials that came with the LG was not any use for burning avi files.....the Nero 7 Premium works perfectly and transcoded two hours worth of Enterprise season 4 but the actual burning went nowhere. All that happened was the dvd tray slid open and an on-screen message asked me to insert a blank dvd. The dvd+r I'm using are brand new so totally empty.
My laptop does recognise the connection and does assign the correct title 'DVD-RAM drive E' to the external drive.
I have tried playing a store-bought DVD on this LG but without success as nothing happens, when I double click on the icon for the LG in My Computer I just get prompted to enter a disk in drive e.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong or what I'm failing to do right, can someone help me out, please?
