What OS are you using?
What type of file are you trying to burn?
What program are you using to burn the file?
How are you trying to burn this file?
How old is your computer does it have a DVD burner?

To write to a DVD you need a drive that is capable of writing to CD's and DVD's.

Your computer is about 6 years old. Is you drive a DVD/CD reader and only writes to CD or does it write to DVD's as well.
