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!
