Hello
Does anyone have the same model and if so has it given problems writing to dvd's. Mine will only accept writing to cd's and refuses to write to anything else although it will read a dvd.

Thanks very much

Possable that the DVD wite laser is kaput, how old is the unit?

A few things to try before buying a new one £30.

Uninstall and reinstall the DVD and the IDE channel the dvd is on.

check the ide cable is fully inserted at motherboard and rear of DVD (probably is ok as CD is working)

Thanks for the suggestions but still no luck. The pc seems to think it is a cd record as any messages refer to insert cd now etc - does this help at all.....
