I'm on XP with a sony vaio and yesterday installed several dvd programmes trying to burn a dvd from a cd. now my cd burner is refusing to record anything. it will play though. i installed davideo2 dvdsqueeze and dvd decryptor. added to this problem was that i was in the middle of removing malware and the advisor on the forum told me to switch off system restore so i cant go back to before the problem. any ideas?
A CD-ROM drive will only replay audio CD/CD-R/CD-RW disks, a DVD-ROM drive will do the same for both CD and DVD disks, a CD-RW rewriter will only write to (or play audio CD) CD-R/CD-RW disks and a DVD rewriter will write to (or play as appropriate) both CD and DVD media disks.
