I really desperately need help before I go out and spend a ton of cash to fix this problem. I don’t know what is wrong with my burner. It’s external and uses a 2.0 USB. It’s never been able to burn DVD-R’s when I know it’s suppose to. (Only DVD+RW) Tonight I went out and brought a brand new DVD-R to try and test the driver, and when I inserted it in, it actually looked like the computer recognized it in the C drive, because the icon showed up as a DVD-R on the device icon, so taking this as a good sign, I opened up CLONEDVD 2 and attempted to burn my movie, and then it started writing (didn’t use to do this) and then suddenly stopped with a Write Error 9 or something like that, and said it was the wrong media type, so I looked back in the control panel of the C Drive on the computer, and the icon that was a DVD-R was now a DVD-ROM icon. I don’t understand what is happening!! Is there any way I can fix this bizarre problem? PLEASE please help
What was your media?
The one I just tried was a Samsung DVD-R, and the ones I tried before were RiData.
