Ok, just so you all know, I have NO idea about a computer’s innards just how to use them (basics only) so any answer would be appreciated in plain speak
I purchased an Acer Aspire which had NTI CD DVDRW Gold already installed along with LITE-ON DVDRW SHW-160P65 (I hope that’s enough info).
I can burn CDs, DVD+Rs fine and I can watch and play both too. However, I cannot burn DVD+RWs even though I’m supposed to be able to.
In case you’re wondering, I’m trying to create an copy of documents I’ve created for my University course which I’d like to be able to amend and add to as I go along so I don’t lose them (exams and everything coming up) so it’s not like I’m trying to copy a DVD. However, DVD+RW is what I need to do as I do NEED to be able to amend these documents from time to time.
The DVDs I have were recommended by the salesperson who sold me the computer and they’re Philips so a good make. At first, I thought it was the discs, so I replaced with another pack. I then bought some Sony ones which also don’t work. I tend to get an error message “illegal operation” or it says it’s written ok but when I put the disc back in it’s blank. I’ve been onto both Acer’s website and NTI’s (and used the fairly useless windows troubleshooter) but can’t get any ideas on what’s wrong and how to resolve the problem.
