DVD Rewriter reads CD's but not DVD's

  kenboy 18:51 08 Oct 2004

I've just bought a DVD rewriter for an Acer PC running Windows 98 SE. The drive will read a CD but if I put a DVD+RW in the drive, the PC crashes when I double-click the drive icon. I installed the drive on a colleague's (almost identical) PC, and it worked fine. I don't have any other kinds of disks so I don't know if it's a DVD/CD or a read/write issue. I'm a relative novice at these kinds of things, so I would appreciate any suggestions for trying to sort this out.

if the drive works fine in "an almost identical pc" then it obviously works fine, make sure you have the latest drivers for your motherboard from the manufacturers website, including bios updates
