I am using windows xp home edition.and Nero version, as i was recommended to use this software by optorite technical support.

I like this dvd writer, but i don't know what happened.

Now the new website for optorite, there nothing about sending email to technical suuport.

thank you for your reply again in advance.

Have a very lovley weekend.

Windows XP has its own built in cd writing capability and you may have to disable it before using Nero or alter its settings

This Microsoft knowledgebase article has more info click here;en-us;324129

PS the latest edition of the mag has a 30 day trial of Nero 6 on the cover disc.

it may not be your software but your dvd drive. i had a similar problem i could do everything with my laptop,even use the media player cd burning facility. i used a different cd burning software and no joy. turned out it was my drive that was the problem. i sent it back under warranty, now it works fine.
