I am having a problem with my DVD Burner. I want to copy a DVD from one drive (D:) and burn it on to a blank DVD-R which I put in my DVD-RW Drive (E:).
I have been using Sonic Record DX to try and do this. This is the original DVD burner software that came pre-loaded on to my computer.
I have had the computer for just over three weeks and to begin with everything was fine I could copy DVDs without any problems but now Sonic Record DX will not let me copy DVDs.
When it tells me to insert a Blank DVD-R in the DVD-RW drive I do this but then I get a message saying “Please insert Blank DVD”. I’ve tried several brand new DVD-Rs which I have just taken out of the wrapping so I know there is nothing on them but yet the software still tells me to insert a Blank DVD.
It doesn’t seem to be recognising blank DVD-Rs in the E:\ drive.
The E:\ drive plays CDs, DVDs etc fine.
I’ve gone to My Computer and checked the status of the DVD-RW drive (E:) and it says everything is fine. I insert a blank DVD-R in the E:\ and the icon on My Computer changes to a DVD-R symbol which shows that the computer has recognised the blank DVD-R. I’ve checked the properties aspect of the blank DVD-R and it says Free Space - 0 bytes and Used Space 0 bytes. I don’t know whether this means that isn’t recognising the disc or that it’s just blank.
Do you think I need some kind of patch or bug fix to enable me to record to blank DVDs again?
