Can't save data to dvd

Hi. Hope someone can help me with this.

Following a re-install of XP Pro + SP2 and all the essentials I backed it all up to a second HDD using Driveimage.

As a safety net I thought I would copy the image file to DVD in order to make things easier next time.

Problem is - can copy the files with no problem but when I go to write the DVD I get the disc not present message.

DVD drive works fine for reading, files, films etc and will write to cd but not dvd.

Haven't had this problem before so assume I am doing something wrong.

All advice welcome

What sofware are you using to burn the DVD and is it DVD-r/rw, etc...

XP will NOT write to DVD only CD

you need third party software like Nero to write to DVD.

That could explain it.

Only have an old version of Nero (5.0). Anything else (free) that I could use?

Thanks for the help

I haven't used any of these myself, but have seen them recommended here from time to time.
