I have an ND1300A NEC r/w CD/DVD and sometimes when I try to record on certain DVDs I get a message that there is an invalid parameter. The drive supports both +R and -R. Why would I get such an error when using Roxio 6?

    Both systems have Roxio version 6 (the computer in question had version 5 but I installed version 6.) Anyway the DVD format and work fine on the other computer but won't format on my own computer, I do not use Nero. The brand of DVD appears cheaper then the normal brand I use but a DVD is a DVD as far as I know????

    hmmmmm then the new drive shud work fine,,, coz the invalid parameter can also be happened when ur drive had bad clusters and is fragmented.... so i think that the new drive shud not have both these problmes,,, right ? :)
