Getting DVD drive to work

  Googy 13:03 31 Dec 2004

Hi Can anyone help please. I have a Advent 3618 with a DVD RW listed as Drive F
My problem is that when I attempt to burn a video clip onto a new disc, all that happens is the gate opens and I'm asked to insert a new disc?

Any suggestions please

You do have a burning program such as Nero6?

Yes, but nothing seems to work. Can I change the set up in My Computer for the drive?

Your drive seems to be a DVDRAM drive. Have you tried using a RAM disk?

When trying to burn a disc ,is the drive listed in the burning software's options?---I mean can you select the drive in order to burn to it?

Also if you are using XP and have put SP2 on recently make sure that you have fully updated your burning software.
