"DVD Drive not accessible" -hardware or software?

  panhandle 21:34 22 Feb 2006

I have re-posted this now that more people are online, hope that is OK??

I can read/write CD's and read DVD's on my combi drive - but cannot write DVD's. I get various error messages such as:

"Drive D is not accessible"
"Please insert a blank disc and try again" when a blank DVD-RW disc is already in.

I have tried to write allsorts & all ways > *.mpeg; *.jpeg; *.doc and using Pinnacle Studio Plus "Make Disc", Pinnacle Instant CD/DVD, Media Player 10, CyberLink Power DVD.

There is nothing in Device Manager or Properties that suggests any malfunction, so I am not sure where to turn or what I have overlooked. The short holiday movie I am trying to write has gone on to CD successfully using Pinnacle Studio, so it looks like hardware but how can I check this? Thanks

you would have been better off just posting in your original thread which would bring it back up the list - in that way others will be able to see what has been suggested/tried already!
