Can't burn dvds

  honeysuckle 17:16 02 Mar 2009

I am trying to burn files to a dvd but when I try to copy to disc I get a message to put a disc in the DVD drive even though there is one in. I have checked and the drive is enabled. What am I doing wrong. Also when I copy files to my external drive they copy over but when I try to copy them back they are not recognised.
I want to backup before I reinstall windows.
