I have a Dell Dimension C521 running Windows XP.
Every time I try and burn a movie file I saved into my computer with DVDFab converter, using the DVDFab gold or platinum it says "insert disc", then when I do, it plays with the disc for about a minute and spits it out and says."No writable media detected, insert writable media"
I made 3 trips to the store. First I got DVD-R, then I got DVD+R, then I finally got DVD+RW. None of them are being recognized as writable material. They are Maxell discs. I went online and found the latest firmware for Dell CD drives and installed it (I think), still not working.
I did go into the settings and select the DVDROM setting for burning DVDR's, it did not help. I even tried opening the file with my Realplayer and burning it with that, it said it wasn't a video file, even though it was playing it! What!!:a
