No Media Detected Error Message

Hi from first time user newbie. I have tried to copy a new DVD to a blank DVD+RW disk (Philips) using DVDFabGold which I downloaded on 3/17/08. I have a Dell Dimesion 8250 desktop with NEC DVD+RW ND-1100A 108B E drive and a Samsung DVD-ROM SD-616T D Drive. Windows XP Home edition. I have tried to copy from Drive D to Drive E directly and get a message “No media detected in Drive E. Please insert compatible media to start the write process.” I have also tired the approach of copying the DVD from Drive D to the DVDFab folder and then going from that folder to the E drive. I get the same error message. I’m sure there is a simple answer. Thanks.

The “NEC DVD+RW ND-1100A” is obsolete and will not recognize newer media…
