LG GSA4163 16x DVD±RW Dual Layer On XP.

Lately the above has stopped burning dvds for me.  At the moment I am trying to copy a dvd (i.e dvd to dvd copy) using Nero (also tried Alchol 120%)

In Alcohol 120%
Everytime I click on burn, the empty is ejected from the dvd drive and I get a error saying there is no space on this dvd.

In Nero:
When I click on burn on the copy section, it doesnt detect my empty dvd and asks me to burn an image on the hard disk rather then making a copy!

I have checked in Device Manager that drivers are installed correctly.  Now I have run out of ideas.  

Any ideas guys/gals?

Many thanks in advance
