Problem Writing Dvd

Dear Friends,
First of all I wish all of you a Happy New Year. :smiley:
I again turn to you for help again with a PLEXTOR DVD writer
(Model#: PX-716A) a replacement of an earlier one, same model. Then I did dvd’s but it did not write cd’s.
Now it is vice versa, it does cd’s but not dvd’s, always witn Convert X to DVD.
Could you help please? Is it a software or hardware problem do you think?
Thanks a million.

Could be a software issue, have you tried Burrrn for making cd’s? Maybe trying a different software to burn the dvd like Imagburn might help?
