No disc insert disc

The DVDRW DVD8801-4D28 came with my DELL XP SP3. I can play CDs and DVDs. I can write & copy to CDs. When I try to create a new DVD , either copying another DVD or entering files to the DVD I receive the message “No disc available. Please insert disc.” Basically what I am saying is that I cannot burn a DVD either -R or +R.

Thanks in advance

[/QUOTE]What software are you using to write data to your blank DVD? Windows (XP) built-in burning engine supports CD only, so you need 3rd party software. Normally, such software is preinstalled on Dell computers that are shipped with a DVD writer.
