Hi All.
I installed a dvd writer in place of my dvd player,but the problem is that when I try to copy files to it and insert a blank dvd it turns itself into a cd player and does not regognise the disc.
I have a cd writer installed aswell and I am running windows XP,any help appreiciated,thanks in advance.

What software are you using to write to the DVD?

Remember XP doesn't have built-in DVD burning software like Vista does.

Hi Burr
Thanks for your reply mate,I am using the software that came with the dvd writer,it's
called LG dvd writer solution,and it's got nero express on the disk.

Hi Marg.
I have just tried your suggestion and in disk info it shows dvd selected but on (my computer)
it still shows up as a cd and won't accept the disk.

regards tony.
