Just bought a new base unit (Colossus) which has an internal CD writer (also DVD drive). It was all pre-installed and ‘ready to go’. Apparently XP has the software already installed to allow you to copy and paste files on to a CD-R/CD-RW.
I have tried this and had the following problems:
Using a CDR it shows 0mb free space and does not allow me to copy anything on to the CD.
Using a CDRW it seems to be all working fine (following wizards), I enter a name for the CD click next and it says that the CD is not writable! When I go to my computer it says there is 0mb free space.
I have tried several CDs in case they were duff, but the same with all of them.
I didn’t get the warranty cover (stupid I know) so can anyone help or has anyone had the same problem. I am not sure if I am supposed to install any other software (would prefer not to if I don’t really have to).
