DVD error message

I have a new computer and find that if I try and save to DVD/RW it gives me the error message " cannot save file to this folder, file error No.16389 Does anyone know what the problem is please.

How are you trying to save the files?

You could also look in Event Viewer under Application and System (Control Panel - Administrative Tools) to see if there is a corresponding error listed there.

...a general error message, not related to DVD writing, which occurs when temporary files cannot be written.

Could you possibly be trying to write to DVD R disks [can only be written to once] instead of DVD rw? Also, the type of disks used is critical in some drives [some will work, some won't] you just have to experiment with different types!

Are you trying to copy other than DATA with Win XP disk writing service? This is not very reliable in some cases.

There is another issue: will your drive write to DVD +R, DVD -R, or both?

I am using Philips DVD/RW and when I click on 'save as' and try and save to DVD I get the error mesage. There is no help in administrative tools.

you cant just save to a dvd

You have to use a dedicated programme such as Nero
