The drive will only need to recognize a BLANK dvd. The explorer will change the disc icon to something named “cd-drive”, which is just a weird “feature”.

Just install a proper burning app like cdburnerxp or Nero to be able to burn to DVD.

Moser Crap, oops Baer are considered 3rd Class media. (Media ID: [B]MBI…[/B])

That might be your problem right there !

The explorer will change the disc icon to something named “cd-drive”, which is just a weird “feature”.

Well, that’s Microsoft for ya, mine does that too sometimes, but always burns a good DVD when he sees one :bigsmile:

My 2 cents…
