Welcome to the forum! :smiley:

What discs are you using now (brand and rated speed on the packaging/discs)?

Do you get errors when you try and burn?

What software are you using?

I’d recommend Verbatim for good quality, easy to find discs. :slight_smile:

im using windows xp media player

maxell dvd-RW 1.1/2x-speed and panasonic DVD-R

everthing else seems ok just unwritable disks.

doin my head in.

OK…to my knowledge, WMP doesn’t burn DVDs.

You’ll need software like Nero, Roxio or ImgBurn to burn to DVD :slight_smile:

Have you updated the firmware?

:cool: :cool:

Practically you can use any disc from any brand that you through at your Sony drive but as Arachne recommends for better quality of burning name brand disc like Verbatim, Sony, Fuji are preferred.

im gonna throw this laptop through the window…now i cant download firmware from sony, great.

anybody know of any free burning software?

Well, ImgBurn’s free, and others you can try are:

DeepBurner (choose “DeepBurner Free”)
CDBurnerXP Pro

And for making audio CDs from music files (.mp3, .wma etc), I use Burrrn

Cracked it.

Thanks for the help!!

Got Nero 6 and its all sorted, it told me what disks to use.
