I run winXP home with SP2
I am new to dvd burning. I have bought some verbatim dvd-r disks with a view to backing up my media files (MP3, WMA, AVI, JPEG etc). It took me about 2 days to work out that windows does not let you autoatically access the dvd-r format. I then bought a program called ‘BurnMyFiles’ from www.getdata.com. I have installed this program and appear to have been successful in writting data files to dvd-r disks.
(I have not yet worked out how to write an AVI file direct to the disk so that I can play it back, have not yet tried with MP3).
My problem is that when I come to check the disks to make sure that I can access the data I get a message saying
D:\ is not accessible
or more recently the drive completely fails to recognise the disk and tells me to
Please insert a disk into drive D:.
Any help would be great. I am new at this so any pointers in the direction a good guide to making backups using the dvd-r format would also be good.
Oh have also emailed getdata - they have sent me a debugging program that appears to have removed my license but still does not let me access the written disks.
