I’m new to the forum and new to DVD burning.
I just built a 64 bit machine and along with it I got the OEM Sony DW-D18a drive from newegg. Now according to my roommate I shouldn’t need any drivers, he said that XP and my burning programs should pick it up automatically.
I tried to copy a dvd he had, which is the same size 4.7 gigs, but both programs (Nero and Alcohol 120) say that I dont have enough space on the blank disk. The amount of data being burned is 4.3 gigs and I dont understand why this is happening.
I’ve heard a lot of things about this drive:
It doesn’t need drivers.
It should be flashed…etc etc.
I’m all confused…
All I need to know is does this drive need drivers? If so where can I get them cause Sony def doesn’t have them. And/or if it needs to be flashed?
Any and all info is appreciated. Sorry for the long post.
