CD Burner XP Pro3

I read elswehere on this superb forum that the above CD/DVD burner was excellent.
I downladed same and whilst I am able to erase a DVD-RW it refuses to do an ordinary wite of some simple files.
I get the following error message
"Writing Error: (3) Errow growing last DVD session. An imcompatible parameter field was sent to the drive (1023). Error sense Data: SENSE KEY: 5 ASC: 26 ASCQ:0"

This, of course, means nothing to me .... does it mean anything to any of you Guys and Gals?

I tried it with an alternative DVD writer, and got exactly the same message.

ALso Nero 7 wiill erase but not write either.

Is that strange ... or is that strange?

Any advice would be gratefully received.

It could be a bug in the program, click here try different software.

Yes dadyassa --- it could be .... but both CD Burner and Nero 7 can erase a DVD-RW but neither can write files to it!

As this happens with both an LG drive, and a Panasonic, I was wondering if there may be something in more 'basic' software, or firmware, that may be causing the problem.
Something in Windows XP Home, perhaps, that isn't set up too cleverly.

dadyassa. I have just been to that link on your response ... most interesting. Thanks.

I should have thought of trying that for myself.

It is still strange that a similar thing happens with Nero though.
Thanks for your help in responding.
