I have no clue what I'm doing either when it comes to burning DVDs.
I just got an External DVD /CD Rewritable Drive.
A Sony DRX-710UL.
I already have withing my computer, a CD-Writer & Dvd rom.
I'm running Windows XP,Hp pavillion 520n
1.3 GHZ Intel Celeron Processor
512 MB SDRAM memory
60 GB Ultra DMA hard drive
No service packs.
The software that came with the Sony is Nero 6
Well, The drive can read disks, but cant write.
Now, I've tried it using NERO, & Tried it using Windows CD writing wizard(It dosent recogonize the sony dvd writer)
My computer shows the drive ok, & sees it.
I have tried using DVD + RW disks and DVD-R
I also tried to use RECORD NOW software to burn something and nothing.
Windows Writing wizard tells me to put in a Writable disk.
Record now says pretty much the came thing.
Nero STARTS the burning process & halfway thru it tells me that it cant finish, there was a problem.
I've tried burning just DATA files & come up with the same problem.
Went To sony to try to troubleshoot the problem & they were no help!!
I figure before I return this sucker(its worthless if I cant use it) I'd try to find out what I might be doing wrong,and If theres anyone who can help.
