Samsung T532A DVD

Hi There!

I am super frustrated with the above referenced dvd drive of my new Gateway laptop.

I am trying to create a set of recovery cds (Recovery Media Creator). Every attempt results in a dialog box stating “This is not a blank disk”, or “This is not valid media”. I have tried CD-R, CD+R, CD-RW, CD+RW, DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW and DVD-RW. All brand new.

I am able to burn other documents and pictures (Nero) on cds and dvds with no problem.

I saw a similar post from a year ago, but no solution to this problem…any insights would be appreciated!

Thank you!

What software have you used??

I have Windows XP. The software used to make the Recovery Cds came standard with the Gateway. I think it is called Recovery Media Creator.
