any help?

Welcome to CDF!!!

Did you tried upgrading the firmware of your drive. Also try using some quality media.

Hi MU_CAMB_31,
are You using “+R” DVDs?
If I am not wrong, the HP dvd200i writer only works (writing) on +R/+RW DVDs (even if it can be able to read -R DVDs burned with a different writer).
When You insert blank -R DVDs, Windows alerts with a “no disk present” message.

hi im new to this so here goes,
my laptop is a time 8375 which is a problem i know!
im running nero, and cannot burn data,
it tells me no disk present all the time, yet i can pay dvds cds no problem.
have i a firmware problem or are the disks not suitable?
i need to down load system data on to 6 *700mg disks to give me some space on the hard drive.
