I have a DVD rom and a DVD/CD-RW Drive on my pc and can play all mediums through them, but my RW drive will not let me copy anything. If I try to make a data Disk it gives the error "there was a problem formatting the medium - press ok" When I press OK windows shuts down and when it re-starts then tells me that it has recovered from a serious error. If I try and make a music disc it just causes my PC to freeze up and I have to un-plug it to turn it off. Anyone know what could be wrong? I am using an almost new machine from Time Computers and I am running XP.
yes all the software was pr-installed. I am trying to burn CD's in the CD/DVD-RW Drive using Pinacle Instant DVD/CD. The results are the same though even if i us Media Player, Real One, or just click "Save these files to disk" It either freezes or just Shuts Windows down.
