writing to dvd drive,

  trv4n 20:11 14 Jun 2008

hello,In jan i put in a dvr-112d dvd writer. It worked ok transferring data to a cdr disc. I now want to txx data to a dvd disc. It keeps telling me different errors. E.g-1:the disc in disc drive is full or not writeable. Also, since then,when you switch on the Pc a black screen comes on with info and at the bottom it says 'searching for boot record from cd rom'.( i've ignored this cos it was not affecting the use of the pc) I have tried swapping the plastic cap on the back of the dvd drive from slave to master and now took it off and still no change. As far as know I have up to date driver info downloaded. The cap on the hard drive is on the very right which i think is the master.hopes this makes sense. thank you for help

What software are you using to write to the DVD?

XP will not write to DVD you will need third party sofware such as Nero.

You cannot change jumper on drive just as you like it as to be set to work with other drives on the system
