It happens often with my Dell 745 when I upgraded. Usually after a reboot it shows up again. Sometimes I have to turn off the computer, unplug the power, open the case and remove the Drive itself from the computer. The I plug it back in and turn the computer back on and it shows up again. I have contacted dell with the issue and they tell me update my drivers. But the problem comes back ever so often
What kind of DVD drive do you have? Look on the front of the drawer itself. If it says DVD-ROM, then you don't have the necessary hardware to burn something onto a blank DVD. If it says DVD-RW, then you should be able to. Also try: the same blank DVD in a known good DVD drive; other blank or commercial (movie) DVDs to see if your drive works with only certain things.
That error means the media you're trying to burn to is corrupt.
Try using a different empty disc.
If that still doesn't work, it may be that you drive needs cleaning.
If that does not solve the problem, it might be that you need a new CD/DVD drive.
It sounds like you're trying to remove everything on your flash drive and start over from scratch. The characters that you are seeing are corrupted files. This is usually caused by power fluctuations when the computer is accessing the date on the USB drive. What you need to do is to run a complete Format on your USB drive to remove everything and reset the USB drive so you can use it again.
