Hi all, I have a problem that i see has happened to others here in regards to trying to burn a dvd,however the answers to those problems hasnt cured my dilema, so here goes.. i have a Gateway MX7525 Laptop ( see Specs..)http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=SLYA0W8GMNCS8Q7Q
.. everything works Very Very well.. i have a DVD +/-RW Model TSST Corp CD/DVDW TS-L532U; Driver appears to be from Provider Roxio, Ver.184.108.40.206, Copyright 94-04
this info is from driver details in Device Manager, as far as watching DVD's it works as its suposed to,however when i go to try to make a backup dvd using NERO 7 ( recently purchased ) and replaced Nero express that came with Laptop...( i figured that perhaps my problem was with software). This Didnt fix the problem.. after going through all the paces of the software and appearing to be ready to burn, the software tells me that either my Blank DVD (Verbatim DVD +R DL) is 1.) not Blank.. 2.) doesnt have enough free space.. 3.) ejects disk and asks for a Blank DVD..
Fustrated... I went to BestBuy and went to the Same Laptop as i have.. ( after speaking to the salesperson) Inserting One of the Blank DVDs that i had Bought and placed it in the Display Laptop and Folloed Nero Express though the same Back up process ( i did this to see if it was just my machine that didnt like this Brand DVD)and low and behold it recognized the DVD, identified it as DVD+R DL and proceeded to copy and burn a test file i had selected......so the prob doesnt seem to be the DVD manafacturer... I am at a complete loss here and seek help before i go Completely Nuts...I have tried all (at least i think) Obvious fixes..ie. drivers etc. so if anyone can help me out here that would be GREAT.. Thanks, Cosjay
