Ok, I did that... Here is what it shows under the "Disc Info" tab:
Disc Type: DVD-R
Book Type: DVD-R
Write Speeds: (Left Blank)
Blank Capacity: 4.38GB
Copyright Protection: N/A
Recorded Information: (Left Blank)
Disc Status: Empty
After reading your questions and seeing my answers, I may see the problem... The blank discs I have are Fujifilm DVD-R Discs and it looks like this drive only handles DVD+R Discs... I was under the assumption this laptop (As up to date and loaded as it is) would handle both formats.
The description from HP on their website for this model laptop (ZV6007US) says it has the following Multimedia Drive (And I quote):
"DVDÂ±R/RW and CD-RW Combo Drive with Double Layer Support"
So that obviously looks like it would except + and - as opposed to what I am descovering now.
Am I right, or ????
I am new to burning dvds but it is something I need to do because the little ones in the house are a little too rough to handle the originals. Again, I look forward to your reply and Thank you.
