Successfully installed a new DVD-RW (Teac DV-W58G-A; on the strength of its best buy rating in last month's pc advisor) thanks to help in this forum. A check of System properties>device manager shows it there, but when I try to write to it (using CD)I get this same message whatever I try to write - "...the folder is marked as Read only". This happens even if I try to write a single file (which is what I've been doing just to check the DVD RW is working). I've done a check for drivers but the system tells me its drivers are up to date (or some such response). The previous device was a CD-RW/DVD combo and came with "Easy CD creator", but there is no software with the new DVD. "Easy CD creator" seems to see the new DVD RW as a CDRW - could that be the problem? Or any other solutions, please.
invest in a decent dvd authoring suite such as the nero 6 or alike. check the software company's site for compatibility first, your recorder IS supported by nero 6 click here and of which you can download a trial version from click here
And should I expect there to be no instructions in an OEM copy? Meanwhile i'm downloading the trial version (thanks for the link, jonnytub)but it's a slow business on a dial-up. Was about to order Broadband but decided to get one problem sorted before starting on anything else!
